MIDDLEBURY — An army of pirates, goblins and superheroes poured across the Otter Creek on Saturday by way of a brand new span that had been on the town of Middlebury’s drawing board since the early 1950s.

And as the Halloween revelers danced on what a half century ago was only a dream, town officials had to be pinching themselves.

This was not a trick.

It was a treat.

“I wore out my shoes again,” he quipped.

Posted on November 4, 2010 |
By Tamara Hilmes



MIDDLEBURY — George is a single, self-employed carpenter. Things usually get a little slower over the winter months, but he cannot find anything this year. He has not paid his rent in three months, and his landlord continues to call and stop by.

This is just one scenario depicting homelessness in Addison County that Ingrid Pixley presented to an audience of around 30 at Middlebury College’s final poverty symposium lecture on Thursday.

Posted on November 4, 2010 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



FERRISBURGH — Ferrisburgh residents on Tuesday backed by a 733-470 margin, or 61-39 percent, the $150,000 purchase of a home and 2 acres next to and south of the town’s Route 7 office building and community meeting center.

Selectmen proposed the purchase, which they said will provide for the future needs of the town office building, including parking, better and safer access from the highway, and other needs now unforeseen.

The article approved by voters calls for financing the deal with a 10-year bank note that officials estimate will cost about $900 a month.

Couple found not guilty of disorderly conduct

Posted on November 4, 2010 |
By Andrea Suozzo



MIDDLEBURY — On Sept. 30, Goshen residents David and Erica Sabatini were acquitted of the charges of disorderly conduct leveled against them last April.

The dispute between the Sabatinis and the state was resolved after a trial that lasted most of two days and a number of witnesses.

Attorney Oliver Cleary, who represented the defendants, said that it’s unusual for a disorderly conduct charge to go to court — it is usually settled before a case gets to trial. But, he said, the Sabatinis hoped to prove their innocence rather than settling the case.
