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 — In the early 20th century, no resource was left unused on a Vermont farm. The very end of a year’s sap run, when the maple flavor is the strongest, was no different. That sap was boiled down halfway, then tossed into a barrel with other ingredients to make sap beer.

“I doubt if there’s a barrel of sap beer in the state today, but I must say, it was a pretty good drink for haying,” said Edgar Dodge on a Vermont Folklife Center recording from the 1990s. (Hear Edgar Dodge's interview below)

VERGENNES — At 7 p.m. on Tuesday, May 8, Vergennes officials and residents will take what could be one of the final steps on what has been close to a five-year journey.

Planners have been working on those zoning laws since Vergennes adopted its award-winning city plan in October 2009.

FERRISBURGH — A Ferrisburgh fire that started just before 11 o’clock on Sunday night burned to the ground the rear of a rambling Route 7 structure and badly damaged the rest of it.

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.
