SALISBURY — Kelly Churchill lives at the end of a winding dirt road, down several flights of wooden steps, in a house that practically floats over the edge of Lake Dunmore. Below the railings of its wooden deck, a dock juts out into water that most mornings is glassy, providing ideal conditions for Churchill’s Vermont Liquid Ski School.
MIDDLEBURY — The music of David Roth has been performed everywhere from Carnegie Hall to the recent vigil on the Middlebury Green in memory of the victims of the massacre in Orlando, Fla.

NEW HAVEN — Vermont State Police Lt. Charles Cacciatore found himself doing something on Monday that he has already done several times during his eventful 25-year career with the department: Gazing upon a stack of boxes that he will soon unpack to put his personal touch on a barren office.
And in this case, the nomadic state police administrator is preparing to settle in Addison County for a second time, as he assumes command of the VSP’s New Haven barracks. Cacciatore previously served in this county as a sergeant from 2004 to the start of 2007.
