Then, after a gentle, reassuring pat to the animal’s hip, Starvish inserts a gloved hand into the cow’s rectum. Soon after, her arm disappears entirely.

ADDISON COUNTY — A bill passed late last month by the U.S. House of Representatives could take steps to improve the safety of American food. Local foods advocates say the goal is laudable, but if it makes it into law provisions of the bill would place unfair burdens on small farmers and food producers in Vermont.

MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury’s local option taxes generated a healthy $165,417 during the second quarter of this year — a sum that not only puts the town on a comfortable pace to meet its first-year debt obligation on the new Cross Street Bridge, but also provides positive signs the local economy may be turning the tide on the recession.
