Judge Samuel Hoar sent 29-year-old Nathan C. Dearing to prison for seven-and-a-half to 16 years.

Dear boys and girls (adults too),

I recently visited your town during its early Christmas celebration on Dec. 3 and had the privilege of meeting almost 100 children at the Middlebury Community House. It’s a terrific event I do every year, and I want to offer a big thanks to the Better Middlebury Partnership and the hardworking people who make “A very Merry Middlebury” possible. What a wonderful time I had hearing the hopes, dreams and wishes of the children who sat on my lap!

MIDDLEBURY — When the final bell ends each school day at Middlebury Union High School, Tristan Woods could easily walk home. But the 9th-grader more often than not takes a detour to what many are describing as the “new-and-improved” teen center at 77 Mary Hogan Drive.

“I enjoy this center,” Woods said last week while playing a video game on one of the center’s computers. “This center is a little more welcoming. There’s entertainment, and nice people.”

By John Flowers



CherryWood9376.jpg

SALISBURY — Town Hall Theater officials are giving area woodworkers a plum assignment using some well-seasoned cherry planks. It’s pretty straightforward; use the wood to make a fine piece of furniture or artwork, have it displayed at the Middlebury theater, and then harvest 50 percent of the proceeds once it is sold.

The other half of the sales price will go to the theater to help fortify its operating budget.
