By Andrea Suozzo

BRIDPORT — It’s not often that the goings-on at a rural beef farm are broadcast across five counties.

But nestled alongside the barns and fields that make up Wood Creek Farm in Bridport, a low wooden room adjoining a tidy farmhouse is the source of the radio stations WMUD 89.3-FM and Farm Fresh 102.9-FM.

MIDDLEBURY — While the long-discussed $16 million Cross Street Bridge has now been completed, Middlebury continues to maintain a lengthy list of other capital improvement projects that local officials believe will need to be whittled down sooner, rather than later.

Middlebury Town Manager Bill Finger earlier this month gave the selectboard what he said was an incomplete list of almost 30 potential projects, ranging from the fairly basic and inexpensive (celebration of the 250th anniversary of the town charter this year) to the complex and costly (new town offices).

MIDDLEBURY — For Middlebury College senior Jenny Djupedal, the dying process has always been a bit of a mystery.

“My grandma passed away when  I was still in high school and she was on hospice when she died,” Djupedal said. “That was a really scary experience for me because I had never seen anybody die before.”

Djupedal is one of few young 20-somethings who has experienced death, and hospice, first-hand.

LINCOLN — Following the 237-222 defeat of the Lincoln Community School’s $2 million bond proposal last Tuesday, the Lincoln school board had some decisions to make.

At a special meeting on Thursday, members decided to put the same bond proposal up for a second vote on March 1, following the Feb. 28 town meeting day.

“We met last night and went around and talked about it and decided to put it before the voters again at town meeting,” Chairman David Venman said in an interview on Friday. “Essentially, it’s the same plan.”
