FERRISBURGH — As voices grew louder and one Sand Road neighbor accused another of lying at the April 3 Ferrisburgh selectboard meeting, Board Chairman Rick Ebel had already warned that he would call a recess to calm things down before another resident held up a dead rat in a freezer bag.

RIPTON — When he was writing sections of North Branch School’s student-scripted spring play, “Wildflowers, Guns, and Bears, Oh My!” which will be staged this weekend, ninth-grader Oscar Downing never set out to incorporate current events.

Patras’ mother used to cook for the Black Lantern Inn in Montgomery (where Patras was raised). His father worked as the sous chef at Hotel Jay.

By Robert Keren



MIDDLEBURY — One of Emmie Donadio’s fondest memories of her 28 years at the Middlebury College Museum of Art was curating the “13 Alumni Artists” exhibition in celebration of the college’s bicentennial.

“I loved doing that alumni exhibition in 2000, for which I also had the pleasure of serving as a juror,” she said. “I visited nearly all 13 of the artists in their studios, from Los Angeles to Chicago to New York, and talked with them about which of their works would go into the exhibition.”
