Demand is strong for continuing ed

By Andrea Suozzo



MIDDLEBURY — It’s no secret that when people are struggling to find jobs, the demand increases for continuing education; retraining classes, certificate programs and colleges often see jumps in applications.

Over the past two years, for instance, Vermonters have been flocking to Community College of Vermont’s classes in droves to a record 7,300 part-time, full-time and non-degree students statewide, according to CCV Executive Dean Susan Henry.

“CCV has been growing by double digit rates,” she said.

Career Center eyes packaged programs

By Andrea Suozzo



MIDDLEBURY — Change is coming to the Patricia A. Hannaford Career Center in Middlebury.
In recent years, enrollment in adult education programs at the technical center has taken a hit, said director Lynn Coale.

He said that a combination of reduced funding for the center’s adult education programs and a lack of funding for students hoping to take courses at the technical center has yielded an overall enrollment decline.

“We’re a fairly small tech center, compared to Rutland or Essex,” said Coale. “I think that we always struggle trying to keep the doors open in continuing education.”

FERRISBURGH — There is an old Balti Arab proverb that goes, “The first time you share tea with a Balti, you are a stranger. The second time you take tea, you are an honored guest. The third time you share a cup of tea, you become family.”

This proverb inspired the title of humanitarian Greg Mortenson’s popular book, “Three Cups of Tea,” which in turn inspired Ferrisburgh resident Mary Kerr, who has made it her mission to build connections between the United States and the Middle East.

Gossens to play role in reapportionment

Posted on December 2, 2010 |
By John Flowers



SALISBURY — When former state Sen. Gerry Gossens retired from the Legislature six years ago, the Salisbury Democrat never imagined he would later have a hand in potentially reshaping the composition of the chamber he was leaving.

But he now finds himself in that position, as a member of the Vermont Apportionment Board (VAB), a seven-member panel that will redraw House and Senate district lines taking into consideration the new decennial census numbers and in a manner that is consistent with the Constitutional standard of one-person-one-vote.

Posted on December 2, 2010 |
By John Flowers



SHOREHAM — Shoreham voters will got to the polls on Tuesday, Nov. 7, to pick one of two possible makeovers for their town offices — or decide not to make any changes at all.

Around 100 residents gathered on Monday, Nov. 29, to hear presentations on two options for replacing the current 20-foot-by-30-foot municipal office building on the town commons. The current offices were built in 1962 as a one-person set-up with one typewriter and one phone.
The two options include:

Middlebury orders study to pin down rail station location

Posted on November 29, 2010 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — The town of Middlebury is applying for a $15,000 federal grant to plan for a local, passenger rail station in anticipation of ramped-up train service along the western part of the state.

Middlebury Town Manager Bill Finger said making progress toward a passenger rail station would also likely enhance the community’s chances for landing federal aid to replace the two railroad underpasses on Main Street and Merchants Row. Those two underpass projects have been on the Vermont Agency of Transportation’s to-do list for several years.

MIDDLEBURY — An ad hoc committee studying the feasibility of a major retail-commercial-residential project on town- and college-owned land behind Middlebury’s Ilsley Public Library will update the public on its work early next year.

At issue is an “Economic Development Initiative (EDI)” being crafted by the town and Middlebury College. It’s a project intended to complement the recently completed Cross Street Bridge and the new entrepreneurial opportunities the new downtown structure could present.
