MIDDLEBURY — Life can take you down some bumpy and trying paths, and Megan Coon has the bruises to prove it.

She thought she had her life all mapped out.

After graduating from Middlebury Union High School in 2003, Coon enrolled at Clinton Community College in Plattsburgh.

“I wasn’t mature enough to finish,” Coon lamented. “I did one-and-a-half years, then I decided to take some time to grow up and figure out what I wanted to do.”

VERGENNES — Teachers and the school board within the Addison Northwest Supervisory Union have settled on a two-year teacher contract more than a month before the current contract expires on June 30.

VERGENNES –– The scene behind Vergennes Union High School was horrifying. Shattered glass littered the ground around two totaled cars. A teenage girl lay unconscious on the hood of one car. Other teens were slumped in their seats, covered in blood.

VERGENNES — Late one recent morning, Vergennes Union High School junior Ashley Stearns burst into Judy Wiger’s science classroom.

“I’m mad at you,” Stearns told Wiger. “I’m mad at you because you’re leaving.”

The two hugged, but Wiger told Stearns she couldn’t talk to her right then: Wiger had scheduled an interview to talk with a newspaper reporter about her retirement this month after three decades at VUHS.
