Sharing Recipes For Life And Memories With Evelyn Quesnel
By Marcie Bolton
   Walking into Evelyn Quesnel’s kitchen is a treat for the senses and the mind. You are wrapped up in aromatic smells and the picturesque setting of butternut squash bubbling on the stove and sunlight streaming through the window. While Evelyn offered to sit in any room to conduct the interview and be more comfortable, it was easy to see that the kitchen was the heart of the house and the kitchen table a place to explore her memories.   [ more ]

By Marcie Bolton
  Talking with Mike Cameron, Sports and features writer for the Valley Voice, I asked him his prediction for the division one state football championships at Castleton State College.  He said "Hartford has not played a team with as good a defense as Middlebury.  Over the last two years Middlebury has gone 19-2.  I am not surprised they have done this well because Dennis Smith and his staff are as good as there is in New England.

Guys and Dolls at MUHS
By Marcie Bolton
   I visited the set of Middlebury Union High School’s production of Guys and Dolls this week as they prepared for their weekend performances.  It all begins with a bet. Nathan Detroit bets high-rolling gambler Sky Masterson that Sky cannot persuade Save-A-Soul Missionary Sister Sarah Brown to accompany him on a trip to Cuba. While the worldly Sky works his charms on a wary Sarah, Nathan is doing his best to stay outside the matrimonial clutches of his long-suffering fiancée, Miss Adelaide. "Guys and Dolls" is a fable about what happens to gambling men and the women who long to tame them.
