By Angelo Lynn



MIDDLEBURY — In the complex world of hospital budgets, a 4.4 percent rise in revenue added to a 1 percent decline in expenses, but which yields a $90,000 loss for the year is understandable.

LINCOLN — “Why pigs?” was the first question posed to Nate Gusakov, owner and operator of Full Belly Farm located off Quaker Street in Lincoln. His answer was simple and unabashed:

“Why pigs?” he responded. “Bacon, in a word.”

Before he began leasing his 17-acre farm three years ago, Gusakov had been a wandering graduate of Sterling College’s Sustainable Agriculture program and Bristol-native who dreamed of one day operating his own small farm.

GOSHEN — Two months ago, Will Mathis had no idea what it took to start a fire department.

Now Mathis, 22, is chief of the new, 10-member Goshen Volunteer Fire Department (GVFD), and although he has already filled out piles of paperwork, there is a lot still to be done.

“We're going to be raising funds, doing coin drops, spaghetti dinners and community service events to get our name out there,” said Mathis, whose mother, Kathy Mathis, is a member of the Goshen selectboard.
