'Brutal disease' changes a family: Nienows face multiple sclerosis

MIDDLEBURY — Mike Nienow thought the persistent pain in his left leg was simply the result of a bad pair of clogs, the footwear of choice for culinary school students at the Patricia Hannaford Career Center.

“It started with the back of my knee; I felt some weird pressure,” Nienow recalled.

But being a bullet-proof 17-year-old with a busy school schedule and social life, he didn’t think too much of it at first.

Then the pain became persistent enough that he switched to a new pair of shoes.

'80s rockers go hillbilly

Posted on September 22, 2016 |
By Elsie Lynn Parini



TheGrift9281.jpg
We all love the '80s right? Why wouldn't you? Wild hair, overstated duds, amazing dance moves and epic guitar riffs. But here in Vermont (ahem, Addison County) we might not be 100 percent '80s rockers at heart (we'll leave that for the students on the hill).

Get ready, because the best of both worlds are hitting the stage on Friday night at the Marquis in Middlebury. Yes, that's right, an '80s Bluegrass Hillbilly Ball — get excited!
