ADDISON COUNTY — As powerful winds swept through Addison County on Wednesday afternoon, Middlebury residents Mike and Marcia Adams kept a close eye on the wind gauge installed at their Munger Street home.

The wind was howling at a pretty steady 50 or 60 miles an hour, Mike Adams said. It was three or four o’clock in the afternoon by then. Outside, trees cracked and shimmied in the wind.

The gusts that plowed through Bennington, Rutland and Addison counties that afternoon toppled trees and power lines, leaving an estimated 19,000 Vermont households without power.

My childhood friend Toby Huss is an actor. He lives in Los Angeles and actually makes a living playing characters on TV and in the movies. Google him, you’ll be surprised how far a boy from a small town in Iowa can go when he heads to the bright lights of New York City, and the brighter lights of Tinseltown, with dreams, drive and a natural affinity for outrageous behavior.

The assessment by HNTB New York Engineering and Architecture also analyzed the pros and cons of providing a temporary fix for the 2,187-foot span, and of rehabilitating the 80-year-old landmark.

Route 116 pit hearing focuses on trucks

Posted on October 29, 2009 |
By John S. McCright



MIDDLEBURY — Is Route 116 north of the intersection with Quarry Road in Middlebury dangerous and would increased truck traffic from the proposed Fenn gravel pit, which would have an access road there, imperil others who use the road?

That was the crux of the discussion at a Monday evening hearing at which the Middlebury Development Review Board considered the application of Ronald and Susan Fenn to site a quarry on their property east of that stretch of Route 116, known locally as Case Street.

The move was taken after experts inspecting the 80-year-old span that links Addison, Vt., with Crown Point, N.Y., found a structural support that worried them.

“It was their decision to close it,” said John Zicconi, Vermont Agency of Transportation Director of Planning, Outreach and Community Affairs. Officials said two of the piers are deficient.

Professional musicians to play New Haven teen composer's quartet

NEW HAVEN — Describing what makes a person a good composer of music is like describing what makes a person a good writer, according to David Ludwig.

“Some things you can quantify, like how clearly or effectively does he express himself,” he said in an interview last week. “Some you can’t define, like how does one person’s work touch our hearts more than another’s.

“Whatever that gift is, Tim has it.”

By John S. McCright



ADDISON COUNTY — John Quinn has served as Addison County State’s Attorney for 24 years and was a deputy state’s attorney for seven years before that.

More than anything, in looking back over his three decades prosecuting crimes here he says he appreciates the citizens who’ve supported him.

“I hope they think I’ve done a good job,” he said.

It’s pretty clear that most of them did. He only once faced an opponent in the race for the elected office.

On Monday, Quinn, 59, announced that he was retiring from the office he has occupied for majority of his career.

Updated: Crown Point Bridge reduced to one lane; officials cite deteriorating trusses

Posted on July 2, 2009 |
By John S. McCright and Andy Kirkaldy



ADDISON — Because of deteriorating steel trusses discovered in a June inspection, New York Department of Transportation officials were poised on Friday to limit traffic to one lane on the Lake Champlain Bridge that links Addison with Crown Point, N.Y.

Signals at either end of the span, a crucial link between Vermont and New York State used by up to 3,600 vehicles a day, will allow eastbound and westbound traffic to take turns crossing Lake Champlain. Work will last at least through the end of August and possibly longer, said NYDOT spokesman Peter Van Keuren.
