Several area organizations lent their support at last Monday’s Middlebury selectboard meeting to a proposal to build a multi-use gravel pathway from the Middlebury Union Middle School to East Middlebury. The pathway would depart the existing Trail Around Middlebury just south of the high school lacrosse field on Creek Road heading south on that existing gravel road, eventually cutting across to the east side of Route 7 and continuing to Route 125 and East Middlebury sidewalks. Because it is relatively flat, and the path would be 4-feet wide or so, it would be ideal for family bike outings...

What a difference seven months can make. Kniffin, during his brief stint as Porter’s top executive, has helped stop the proverbial bleeding at Porter medical Center. The organization recently won state approval for a very conservative fiscal year 2017 budget....
