Route 125 in Ripton and Middlebury not as badly hurt as in 2008 floods

Posted on August 29, 2011 |
By John Flowers



RIPTON/MIDDLEBURY — In a scene somewhat reminiscent of the flooding of August 2008, Route 125 from East Middlebury to Ripton experienced washouts in three locations as Tropical Storm Irene ripped through Addison County Sunday.

In one location, the Middlebury River took out a swath of guardrail, noted Ripton Selectman Richard Collitt.

“It’s nothing as serious as 2008,” Collitt said, harkening back to a brutal stretch of rain that erased several portions of Route 125 and took out entire sections of some local roads in Ripton, East Middlebury, Salisbury, Leicester, Goshen and Hancock.

ADDISON COUNTY — Residents across Addison County and Brandon this morning are coping with the massive amount of water that the remnants of Hurricane Irene dumped on Vermont over the weekend. 

State roads — including parts of Routes 7, 30, 22A, 116, 125 and 17 —  were closed for a time on Sunday and into Monday, as well as local roads in many communities. In New Haven, the Nash Bridge on River Road was closed due to water being over the bridge, and a part of River Road in Bristol was also closed for a time.

MIDDLEBURY — Former Gov. James Douglas may be retired from politics, but he has no problem staying busy.

The Middlebury Republican, now eight months removed from office, is settling into a new life that includes such luxuries as spare time, more time with his family, the ability to finally drive himself to places and the flexibility to dress-down if he wants to.

But old habits are hard to break.

Harvey was named head coach by OV Athletic Director Sumner Erbe earlier this month, and the player and parents had a lot to do with the selection of the Forest Dale resident for the job.

“I was told that they spoke up on my behalf, and I am forever grateful for that,” Harvey said. “I am very grateful to get this position.”

By Angelo S. Lynn



Help wanted: Independent-minded resident willing and unafraid to devote hours of community service time to lay the foundation for a stronger Middlebury.

MIDDLEBURY — Three years after the Legislature passed Act 92, the Vermont Energy Efficiency and Affordability Act, the state is not on pace to reach the act’s goal of improving energy efficiency in 25 percent of Vermont homes (roughly 80,000) by 2020.

Instead, the state is likely to fall short of this goal by 28,000 homes.
