ADDISON COUNTY — There was a day when renting out VHS tapes was almost as good as printing cash, said Terry Pellegrino.

Pellegrino, approaching 65, is known in Middlebury as the long-time co-owner of Video King, across the parking lot from Shaw’s Supermarket.

ADDISON COUNTY — Unlike 2013, the high school boys’ basketball season did not end this winter with a local team cutting down nets.

Still, three of the four area squads fared well enough to earn home playoff games, and all were led by athletes who submitted outstanding efforts that are recognized here in the 2014 Addison Independent Boys’ Basketball All-Star Team.
