As we head toward another winter of debating health care in Montpelier I wanted to share a couple of my own experiences and ask you to share yours with me. The names in the stories below are not fictional because they all helped save my life. In an effort to be polite I have refrained from naming those who have not assisted in this effort.

Clippings: Ringer helps in barbecue throwdown

Posted on August 30, 2012 |
By John Flowers



Every family has had at least one since pre-historic times: A designated grill grunt to supervise the roasting of large slabs of meat over an open flame to provide nourishment for the clan. Someone raised my hand when the assignment was offered up in our family a few decades ago, and no one has yet to wrestle me for the tongs and spatula.

Local kombucha company expanding in Bristol

Posted on August 30, 2012 |
By Andrew Stein



BRISTOL — When husband-wife duo Jeff Weaber and Katina Martin moved back to Addison County in 2005, Martin — a naturopathic physician — founded Salisbury Natural Family Health the following year.

Weaber, with his years of brewing experience in Oregon, decided to combine his and his wife’s skillsets to create a beverage high in vitamins and probiotic yeast and bacteria: kombucha, a slightly fermented tea first produced in Asia. In the autumn of 2007, the kombucha company Aqua Vitea was born in the basement of Weaber and Martin’s Salisbury home.

In other action last week, Middlebury police:
