MIDDLEBURY — It’s not unusual for children to announce what they’d like to be when they grow up, such as a fireman, pro athlete or even astronaut.

“I always felt a calling to work with kids,” Mayer said.

And Mayer dutifully met his calling, serving thousands of children during a career that has spanned four decades.

MIDDLEBURY — Addison County now has one Chevrolet dealership.

On Dec. 12, Tom Denecker and partner Mike Capra, owners of Denecker Chevrolet in Ferrisburgh and Vergennes, completed their purchase of Middlebury’s Shea Motors, in a deal brokered by both dealerships’ parent company, General Motors.

JerrySchwarz6077.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — Jerry Schwarz has just about seen it all during his almost 38 years as a public defender. He’s defended clients on charges ranging from petit larceny to murder, with just about every other offense in between. But the gregarious attorney with his trademark bushy gray beard and booming voice will retire from his post as Addison County public defender in order to live life more fully outside of the courtroom.

“I love the people and the work, but you can’t do it forever,” Schwarz said during a recent interview.

MIDDLEBURY — Sandy Jackson has always been a crafty person.

“My hands never stop making stuff,” she says. “I can’t stand to be idle for a minute.”

When she and her husband, Bruce Eichinger, went to Paris for three months back in 1996, she decided to put her craft skills to the test. She brought along a book called “Pop-up Geometric Origami” by Masahiro Chatani and determined she was going to take her greeting cards and decorations to the next level.

By Zach Despart



drumming6608.jpg

LINCOLN — The sounds of drumming echoed through the halls of Lincoln Community School one afternoon last week. In a classroom, Guinean-born Simbo Camara led seven students through a West African dance accompanied by a drumbeat.

“Listen for the beat!” he shouted with infectious energy.

The two children playing the drums had a tendency to speed up, as if racing each other, so Camara kept the beat on the drum he straddled while he directed the dancers through their moves.
