MIDDLEBURY — The Middlebury Union High School girls’ hockey team had little trouble with visiting Brattleboro on Friday evening, coasting past the Colonels, 8-0, to improve to 9-3.
The Tigers thus kept pace with the other top teams in Division II, first-place Burr & Burton (10-1-2) and third-place Northfield (10-2-1). The Tigers are ahead of Northfield because they have won more D-I games and earned more quality points, despite losing to the Raiders this winter, as they have to the Bulldogs.
MIDDLEBURY — A refrigerant leak from a cooling system at Hannaford Supermarket in Middlebury released a gas that caused at least four employees to become ill and also prompted the store to close for most of Thursday morning, Jan. 23, according to emergency responders that included members of a state Vermont Hazardous Materials Response Team.
MIDDLEBURY — The Middlebury Union High School boys’ hockey team won twice last week to improve its record to 7-4 and stretch its winning streak to five games.
On Wednesday, Justin Stone scored three times as the Tigers outpaced host Harwood, 6-2, after taking a 6-0 lead. Keenan Bartlett (two assists), Devin Dwire (assist) and Kevin Galenkamp (assist) chipped in a goal apiece for MUHS. Nick Audet had two assists, Jordan Stearns helped set up one goal, and goalie Sawyer Ryan stopped 16 shots.

PANTON — Ed and Beverly Biello were not considering conservation when they bought a home and land in Panton in 2000. Their property had scenic views of Lake Champlain with good access from Adams Ferry Road so they looked into selling house lots.

Last year several members of the Middlebury selectboard approached the college with a straightforward proposal: Would we join forces with the town to help realize its long-held desire to replace the aging municipal building and gymnasium?
