Common Ground Center marks two decades

STARKSBORO — Tucked away in the rolling hills and babbling brooks of Starksboro is one of Addison County’s better-kept secrets — but Jim Mendell doesn’t want it to stay that way.

Mendell and his wife, Peg Kamens, are co-founders of the Common Ground Center, a family recreation retreat on a sprawling 700-acre parcel that straddles the towns of Starksboro and Monkton. Since 1994, the nonprofit has hosted children’s camps, family retreats, private parties and school groups.

Standing With Your Diversified Occupation

Students at the Wall and Later

at the National Gallery 

Some of them have never flown before,

crossed a border, slept away from home.

All of them can read a carved-in name,

 

trace a carving in a stone.

You’ve taught them to learn with

their hands, to go beyond themselves

 

when they can. To take their place

Editorial: Don't let 'perfection' be the enemy of good — vote 'yes' on Article 1

By Angelo S. Lynn



As Middlebury residents face a revote next Tuesday on its proposed $6.5 million municipal building/recreational center project, we tip our hats to the more civil nature of the debate this time around.

Jessie Raymond: If you want to get noticed, go green

Posted on May 7, 2014 |
By Jessie Raymond



Last Saturday was Green Up Day. Like hundreds of other people in Addison County, I set off down the road clutching a lime-green plastic garbage bag — the international symbol for “Look at me, I’m a Good Person.”

As I trudged along picking up O.P.T. (Other People’s Trash), drivers honked and gave me the thumbs up, and passing bikers and joggers yelled out thank yous. I may as well have been wearing a cape.

Clippings: Finding culture, north of the border

Posted on May 7, 2014 |
By Zach Despart



We like to give Canada a hard time. The excessive politeness. The accent. The fact that if all the moose in the country formed a city, it would be the fourth most populous in all of Canada. Things like that.

I’ve been to Canada a half-dozen times, and recently spent four days in Toronto — my girlfriend was going to an international studies conference, and I tagged along for fun.

Community Forum: Why Creek Road is best site for new rec center

Posted on May 7, 2014 |
By Brian Carpenter



Editor's note: This week’s writer is Middlebury Selectman Brian Carpenter.

In talking with community members, I have found what I believe to be the root cause of the confusion over the selection of the Creek Road site for the town recreation facility.

Many people have asked me, “Why not at the recreation park?”

I believe the information I found on the process and the rationale may help clarify this question.
