Retired lineman climbs the ladder

MIDDLEBURY — At age 100, Bill James can cross the word “bucket” off his bucket list.

James donned a helmet last Wednesday and at long last got a lift in a bucket truck, courtesy of his former longtime employer, Central Vermont Public Service (CVPS).

It was a special treat for James, who toiled full-time as a lineman for the state’s biggest electric utility for 34 years, from 1940 to 1974. Back in those days, linemen had to climb up the utility poles. Today, the bucket trucks gently lift workers up with the flick of a switch.

Clippings: From the outhouse to the penthouse

Posted on July 14, 2011 |
By John Flowers



Only 10 years ago, I was a self-described whiner when it came to my rooting interests on the professional sports scene. Having spent most of my life in New England, I rooted for the New England-area sports teams. That meant the Massachusetts-based Red Sox, Bruins, Celtics and Patriots.

Entering this millennium, rooting for those aforementioned teams (with the possible exception of the Celtics) meant wearing a big loser “L” on my forehead at any gathering of sports enthusiasts.

Fire station project costs reduced; cottage might be saved

By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — Officials planning a major makeover of Middlebury Fire Department facilities have shaved more than $400,000 from the most recent $5.2 million estimate for the project.

That savings is derived in part from eliminating a proposed paved driveway on the southern side of the site that would have extended from Seymour Street to parking at the rear of the station.
