It was the second dose of good news for Bristol-based public schools during the past week. On June 9, Addison Northeast Supervisory Union voters approved the Mount Abraham Union High School budget — also on the third attempt — by an 852 to 597 margin.

JuttaMiska5302.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — Jutta Miska’s contributions to teen issues date back to the 1970s, when she — then a teen herself — took a lead role in organizing youth activities at her former church in the small village of Thungen, in her native Germany.

MIDDLEBURY — Ask veteran Middlebury Union Middle School social studies educator Mary Goodale what got her interested in teaching, and she will give you, without hesitation, a very offbeat answer.

By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — The Middlebury selectboard on Tuesday voted, 5-2, to support a Vermont Agency of Transportation proposal to make $3.5 million in safety upgrades to the Middlebury State Airport. That move is not sitting well with neighbors of the facility, who believe the project could have a negative impact on their quality of life and property values.

“I’ve tried to listen open-mindedly to both sides of the discussion,” Selectman Brian Carpenter said at a board meeting attended by around 20 airport neighbors.

Clippings: A double shot of pride for parents

Posted on June 11, 2015 |
By John Flowers



We buried my father more than two decades ago, and my memories of him are sadly growing more faint by the year. But I will always remember the emphasis he placed on getting a college degree — not only as a ticket to better employment, but also as a means by which to grow intellectually and socially before setting out into the world.

Posted on June 8, 2015 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury officials last week identified next April as the start-up time for the estimated $50 million reconstruction of the community’s two downtown rail overpasses, a project they again stressed would be messy, noisy and inconvenient during up to three years of work that will ultimately yield additional green space near St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church and a concrete tunnel that will someday accommodate double-stack train cars.
