MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury College has recognized for local residents — Glenn Andres, Sadie Brightman, Emily Joselson and Amy Mason — with the 2020 Bonnie and John McCardell Citizen’s Awards in recognition of their remarkable contributions to the community. The college delayed its announcement of the 2020 awards until 2021 due to the pandemic.
Normally Middlebury College President Laurie L. Patton presents the annual awards at a celebratory dinner for the current and prior recipients of the award at the President’s House. The dinner for the 2020 award winners will take place at a later date.

Though I was plenty convinced by my own observation and research, I appreciate that Lt. Gov....

WEYBRIDGE — Three Weybridge women have joined forces to infuse two ingredients they believe have been in short supply thus far in the school closure debate in the Addison Central School District: financial statistics and conversation that prioritizes students’ needs.
“We want to be doing what works best for children, particularly our most vulnerable children, and we want that to be at the very heart of our school board’s planning and decision making process,” said one of the women, Julia Barry.
She and her friends Amy Mason and Jennifer Phelps have a combined seven children attending either...
