MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury drivers last week got their first-ever opportunity to travel behind the town’s municipal building, as Academy Street officially opened to traffic in the first of what will be several changes in downtown traffic patterns this summer.

Academy Street is the new, one-way road linking College Street to Main Street. It is but one part of the $16 million Cross Street Bridge project scheduled for completion by the end of this October.

VERGENNES — The students of the Vergennes Union High School class of 2010 were not alone as they marched into the standing-room-only school gymnasium last Friday evening. The institution’s 50th graduating class was followed by more than half the members of the class of 1960 — VUHS’s first graduating class.

“There were 60 members in the class of 1960, and it is fitting that they should share the birthday milestone of 50 years this evening,” said Ann Sullivan, a former VUHS English teacher and 1960 alumna who took the floor to wish the students well.

Not this year at Mount Abraham Union High School, where commencement speakers Geoff Booth and Caroline Camara roared up to the graduation stage on Saturday atop a Harley Davidson motorcycle and delivered a high-octane message to the 149 member of the class of 2010.

Graduates rule O.V. 'House of Noise'

By Lee J. Kahrs



web_ov2.jpg

BRANDON — There was some pretty deep thinking going on in Brandon this past Saturday morning. Valedictorian Jack Markoski should consider a career in philosophy instead of psychology after his speech to 102 fellow classmates at the Otter Valley Union High School 2010 graduation ceremony.

Markoski evoked Kerouac, Thoreau and J.R.R. Tolkien as he urged his peers not to be complacent, to wander, to explore, to dream, and to use their imaginations.

Midd. board urged to reject Fenn pit

Posted on June 17, 2010 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — Around two dozen neighbors on Monday made their final appeal to the Middlebury Development Review Board (DRB) to deny a bid by the Fenn family to establish a gravel pit on a portion of a 70-acre parcel they own off Route 116, just north of Quarry Road.

The neighbors argued the pit proposal violates local zoning laws; would bring dust, toxic fumes and noise pollution to a residential area; and would set up the potential for collisions between trucks entering and exiting the site and motorists and cyclists negotiating busy Route 116.

Three Neshobe educators retire

BRANDON — Observing Sue LaRock, Julie Fox and Jean Childers is like watching a sweet, hilarious, feel-good film.

The three woman, who count each other as friends as well as co-workers, have each decided to retire from their jobs at the Neshobe School in Brandon after a combined 68 1/2 years, and it is definitely with mixed feelings.

“We’re leaving stuff we love everyday,” said Childers earnestly. “To me, it doesn’t get any better than the last 20 years.”

“It is with very, very mixed emotions,” LaRock said, adding with her trademark wit, “But I’m old and tired.”

Former Middlebury police canine dies

By John Flowers



VERGENNES — Vergennes Police Chief George Merkel this week was mourning the loss of his first police dog, Blade, who had to be euthanized due to rapidly failing health brought on by degenerative myelopathy.

German shepherds, as was Blade, are particularly susceptible to degenerative myelopathy, a progressive disease in the spinal cord in older dogs, Merkel said. It typically begins with the loss of coordination in the hind limbs and often progresses to paralysis.
