Graduates struggle in a tough job market

By KATHRYN FLAGG

MIDDLEBURY — More than 500 students took their diplomas in hand on Sunday at Middlebury College, marching across an outdoor stage on the college quad into a job market that, recent grads agree, proves as daunting a challenge as any final exam.

The graduates are heading into a marketplace where, according to a recent study conducted by the National Association of Colleges and Employers, employers expect to hire 22 percent fewer new grads this year than they hired last year.

By KATHRYN FLAGG

BRISTOL — “Studying history is about taking a leap of imagination,” Kristen Farrell told her students last week, standing in her history classroom at Mt. Abraham Union High School.

On Friday, that leap took students out of their classroom and back in time, when an annual Living History celebration brought the past to life at a small military encampment beside the Bristol high school.

By ANDY KIRKALDY

BRANDON — An eighth-inning single by Kristy Pinkham, three double plays, Sam Hansen’s squeeze bunt and the usual stellar pitching of Ashley Sanderson on Tuesday accomplished a lot for the Otter Valley Union High School softball team.

Not only did those key efforts give the Otters’ a 2-1 win over rival Rutland, their second over the Division I Raiders (11-4) this spring, but the result may have nailed down the No. 1 seed in Division II for 14-1 OV.

The Beauty is in the Particulars

By Matt Dickerson

An ESPN talk show host recently complained about the sport of baseball. He argued that what mattered in sports were memories, particulars, and memories of particulars, and that baseball was all about numbers. Actually, he sounded slightly less articulate than that, and somewhat louder, angrier and whinier. Nonetheless, I agreed with the first half of what he said: Beauty is in the particulars.

Gov. Douglas unveils a new budget counter-proposal

By JOHN FLOWERS

MIDDLEBURY — Gov. James Douglas on Tuesday released his own proposed fiscal year 2010 state budget to counter the $4.5 billion spending plan he vowed last week to veto, but it appears as though the counter-proposal will not avert a legislative override vote slated for June 2.

The Middlebury Republican’s plan recommends further cuts, account transfers and raising $13 million in new revenues — roughly half the amount the General Assembly had endorsed to help bridge what had been a looming $281 million shortfall.
