MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury officials are looking to identify human remains found in Middlebury Friday morning.
At 11:43 a.m. on Oct. 21, the Middlebury Police Department received a call from a hiker who reported finding a body in the woods between Court Street Extension and Seminary Street Extension.
The police responded to the area and located human remains.
The Police Department Crime Scene Unit was on-scene with an assistant state’s attorney and the assistant medical examiner early Friday afternoon.
BRISTOL — The old North Street fire station in Bristol could see new life as a mixed-use business space or a museum if either of two proposals by two local men comes to fruition.
At its Oct. 17 meeting, the Bristol selectboard took a first look at proposals for the building, which ended its 119-year run as the community firehouse this past summer when the fire department moved into its new station on West Street.
VERGENNES — During Monday’s Vermont Transportation Board public forum on proposed changes to the state’s rail service and on downtown truck traffic, which was held at the Bixby Library in Vergennes, Alderman Jeff Fritz read a statement from Mayor Bill Benton on the city’s ongoing frustration with the many trucks that rumble through its center every day.
It's classic: sweet and spicy. We know it to be true from any good romance novel or heart-pounding salsa dance. The crush of spicy hot and sensual sweet is undeniably irresistible. And so it was last Saturday in Vergennes during the second annual Chili and Chocolate on the Green festival.
SHOREHAM — The drought that has hurt famers and gardeners in Addison County has claimed one more victim — the Fort Ticonderoga Ferry.
The barge that carries up to 18 cars at a time across Lake Champlain between Larrabees Point in Shoreham and Ticonderoga, N.Y., was ending it’s season early today because of the lower than normal water level.
“The lake is so low now, there are days with the south wind that you can feel (the barge) dragging on the bottom,” said Alison Matot, who runs the ferry with her husband, Mike.
