Abuse victims wear pain on their sleeves

MIDDLEBURY — They are basic words transposed on simple cotton T-shirts, but they are strung together in such a fashion as to form powerful messages that can’t be ignored.

“One year later, I still cringe when people touch me. I always thought I was one of the people who would never be raped, until it happened.”

“‘Home sweet home’ may not always be sunshine and lollipops.”

“End the silence, stop the violence.”

“You took so much from me, but you couldn’t take my sparkle.”

Acclaimed film framed by writer's experience at Middlebury College

MIDDLEBURY — A Mormon student at Middlebury College can feel almost as out of place as a 20-year-old Hasidic Jew running the illicit drug ecstasy from Amsterdam to New York.

Almost.

Award-winning screenwriter Antonio Macia, who graduated from Middlebury in 2000, is well acquainted with the feeling of isolation that goes hand-in-hand with both scenarios.

Group spearheads wetland restoration effort

web_wetlands4538.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — Grass rustled in a muddy, sulphur-smelling ditch in Bridport, and just beyond the property line, vehicles hummed through fields of long grasses, cutting and sweeping the cuttings up to store for winter feed.

The long, deep ditch sits close to the edge of 175 acres along the Lemon Fair River that was, until recently, agricultural land. Years before that, the area was a wetland vital to the health of both the Lemon Fair and, at its end, Lake Champlain.

Porter Hospital OK'd for 6.5% rate hike

Posted on September 27, 2010 |
By Tamara Hilmes



MIDDLEBURY — The state has approved Porter Hospital’s request for a 6.5 percent rate for the fiscal year that begins this Friday. The higher rate is part of Porter’s $62,326,074 spending plan for fiscal year 2011, which represents a 5.4 percent spending increase over 2010.

The 6.5 percent rate increase exceeded regulators’ 5.9 percent cap on Vermont hospital rate increases, but Porter got the green light because its increase would have landed at just 5 percent had it not budgeted for installation of a digital record-keeping system also mandated by the state.

College gets high rank from NCSA

Posted on September 27, 2010 |
By Tamara Hilmes



MIDDLEBURY — Just like any compliment, some college rankings need to be taken with a grain of salt.

That is the attitude of Middlebury College Director of Athletics Erin Quinn, anyway, in deference to the National Collegiate Scouting Association’s (NCSA) recent ranking of Middlebury as third overall in their “comprehensive study of both academics and athletics.”

Food shelves see record demand

Posted on September 23, 2010 |
By John Flowers



ADDISON COUNTY — Addison County human services providers are using superlatives these days in describing the state of food and fuel assistance resources available for needy families.

Only in this case, the superlatives are being used in a negative sense.

“I have been here 10 years, and it has never been nearly this bad,” Helping Overcome Poverty’s Effects (HOPE) Executive Director Jeanne Montross said on Monday in describing the emptiness of her agency’s emergency food shelf.

MIDDLEBURY — It was 38 years ago that contractor Dutton Smith Sr., unable to secure a permit from the town of Middlebury for a development proposal, wrote a farcical play summing up his frustrations.

He aptly titled it “The Permit,” and it played to 21 enthusiastic crowds before the script was shelved.

UD-3 board revises cutting strategy for 2011-12 budget

Posted on September 23, 2010 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — UD-3 school officials will explore the consequences of building a 2011-2012 spending plan that is 2 percent less than the current year’s budget.

It’s a sobering assignment, but somewhat less formidable than the task that had been mapped out for the UD-3 budget committee last spring. The panel and UD-3 administrators had been directed to develop a 2011-2012 budget reflecting a 3.5-percent decrease compared to current spending for Middlebury Union Middle School and High School. That would’ve translated into a $558,852 cut.
