MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury police on Christmas Day completed their second annual toy drive, which this year provided gifts to 44 children in 21 families based in Middlebury, Ripton, Vergennes, Weybridge and Brandon.

Local community members and businesses donated gifts for the toy drive, which also featured the participation of the Addison County Sheriff’s Department, Vergennes Police Department and Vermont State Police.

It all happened one Thanksgiving weekend back in the 1980s after Richard Wood watched Miracle on 34th Street (as is his family’s Thanksgiving tradition). The South Burlington native latched on to what Alfred said in the movie: “Of all the ‘isms’ the worst of them is commercialism!”

On a lark, with the intention of taking on the “black” in Black Friday, Wood put on a Santa hat and headed out to the local shopping centers.

MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury resident Heather Smith wondered if something was amiss when she saw police cruisers pull into the parking lot in front of her John Graham Court home on Christmas Day.

Every year, boys and girls around the world send letters to Santa in the the north pole. Here are a few that local children shared with us.

 

Dear Santa,

Some Wii games like Indiana and Star Wars and Batman, and Mario and Sonik, and a ripstick and a game for the Wii. It is. Maryo cart and a DS game it is Maryo. I would like some bayblades and a bayblade arena.

LINCOLN — Heading up the road from Bristol along the New Haven River, just west of the mountain village of Lincoln, stands a small Christmas tree in the woods decorated with lights and a star.

The mysterious tree — situated in a thick patch of forest, across the river from homes and utility lines — shines anomalously against tall stands of trees in the dark, winter night.
