By John McCright



MIDDLEBURY — Harper Smith of Middlebury liked drawing and painting and she has been doing it since she was very young. So it was not surprising when last year, as an eighth-grader at Middlebury Union Middle School, she entered one of her drawings into a contest.

MIDDLEBURY — They arrived from all corners of the state by the hundreds on Monday, bathing Middlebury College’s white marble Mead Chapel in a sea of green, blue and black.

From constables to reformed lawbreakers to the governor of the state of Vermont, they filled the chapel to honor a man who many described as a “giant” in law enforcement — Addison County Sheriff James Coons, who died on April 16 following a lengthy battle with cancer. He was 59.

But listen closely, and you may notice that his whistling is more ornate than most: Earlier this month, Takeda took third place in the adult male grand champion competition at the 39th International Whistlers Convention in North Carolina.
