American Radical preview Kate.jpg

Before actor, playwright and time-traveler Kate Redway decided to transform herself into the 19th century feminist Elizabeth Cady Stanton, she had never heard of the woman or her crucial role in the battle for women’s rights. But once she learned of Stanton’s enormous influence on the movement, she resolved to bring her story back to life for today’s audience. You can see the result on stage at Town Hall Theater in Middlebury, when Middlebury Actors Workshop presents her play “American Radical,” opening on March 3.

MIDDLEBURY — It’s been a 19-year climb for Middlebury Mountaineer, but it has finally reached its desired summit of a prime retail location on Middlebury’s Main Street.

Middlebury Mountaineer co-owner Steve Atocha said on Thursday the store will soon move from its current spot at 2 Park St. to its new home at 56 Main St., recently occupied by Clementine. The new storefront will give Middlebury Mountaineer greater visibility and more walk-by traffic, Atocha said.

BRIDPORT — Bridport now can rightfully lay claim to the nickname of “Bridgeport.”

That’s because the community is confronting repairs to no less than four of its local bridges, beginning this March with the Sunderland Bridge on Crown Point Road.

Bridport residents on Town Meeting Day will be asked to spend up to $325,000 in town surplus funds to repair the 52-foot-long Sunderland Bridge, which straddles the western branch of Dead Creek on Crown Point Road, near its intersection with Basin Harbor Road.

MIDDLEBURY — There are plenty of reasons to love Addison County. We’ve got sprawling farmland, a giant summer fair, historic villages, a vibrant shiretown, lakes for swimming and mountains for hiking — you name it. But there’s one thing our beloved home has sorely lacked.

Mexican food.

Washington County’s got the Mad Taco. Chittenden County’s got El Gato Cantina and El Corjito. Windsor County’s got the Mojo Cafe. So what can Addison County residents do when we crave spicy peppers and guacamole?

Posted on February 27, 2017 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — A Vergennes resident has asked city council members if they would consider ways to better involve the city’s young adults and students in civic affairs, and council members at their Feb. 14 meeting took seriously the suggestion.

Erin Roche — also the wife of Alderman Mark Koenig — said she had one short-term suggestion and also hoped the council would work to find longer-term solutions about how to create opportunities for younger citizens “to become more engaged in the political process and the work of the community.”

VERGENNES — Sharing their home was something Lauraine Warfield and her husband, George, always loved to do. They often housed graduate students during his career as a professor.

When George became ill, the family thought that Lauraine could benefit from a loving presence in the home and contacted HomeShare Vermont. The day when Lauraine met her first homesharer, George passed away. The family wondered if perhaps George decided his wife would be in good hands.

FERRISBURGH — The Ferrisburgh selectboard plans to review its proposed town charter with voters at Ferrisburgh’s annual town meeting, and the board will also recommend to residents that hearing and vote dates on the charter be set for as soon in the spring as possible, according to Selectboard Chairwoman Loretta Lawrence.

If residents agree, that could mean a charter adoption vote in early May, and the two town public hearings required by state law before the vote could be held in early and late April, with town-wide balloting to follow in early May.
