first_imgA dental office that will provide access to dental care for low to moderate income individuals in Addison County, as well as the general population, will be getting a $200,000 boost from the state, Governor Jim Douglas announced Wednesday.In a ceremony at the future home of the Addison County Dental Center, Douglas presented a $200,000 Community Development Block Grant to the Town of Middlebury that will be used to help equip and furnish the offices on Merchants Row. This is an area which has been in need of additional dental care providers for some time, Douglas said. The Addison County Dental Center will focus on providing access to dental care for low to moderate income individuals, but will also be a resource for all of the people of Addison County.Douglas noted that the dental office, located in the former Citizens Bank site, is near the Addison County Transit Resources bus route and is also within walking distance of Middlebury College, the Mary Hogan Elementary School, Middlebury Union High School and the Mary Johnson Children’s Center.The center will have 4 treatment rooms, 4 dental chairs, a reception/business office area, a sterilization center and a lab.Middlebury Town Manager William Finger, and Peg Martin and Seymour Rettinger of the non-profit Addison County Dental Center were on hand to accept the check. We are very appreciative to the Vermont Community Development Program for this generous grant and are looking forward to a grand opening of this much-needed center this summer, said Martin, a board member of the Addison County Dental Center. As a result of this contribution, the financial goals of Addison County Dental Center are almost fully realized, making us a go-ahead project, Rettinger said. We will be reaching out to the community for contributions to finish our funding needs.The Governor praised the work of the Addison County Dental Center; the Town of Middlebury; and the Vermont Health Department, as well as the dedication of the staff at the Department of Housing and Community Affairs who work in the Vermont Community Development Program. These grants are important because they leverage other financial resources and help address critical housing, service, and economic development needs in our communities, Douglas said.The Agency awards the competitive grants based on recommendations of the Vermont Community Development Board and approval of Commerce and Community Development Secretary Kevin Dorn.For information about the Vermont Community Development Program, please see the Agency of Commerce and Community Development website at: http://www.dhca.state.vt.us/VCDP/index.htm(link is external)last_img read more


Women of Troy looking to make noise

first_imgAt this point in the season, it’s all about who has the hot hand.This unofficial law of March basketball bodes well for the Women of Troy. Currently riding a season-high six-game win streak, USC is liking its chances to make a deep run in this year’s Pac-12 tournament.“Everything is starting to click for us,” senior guard Briana Gilbreath said. “It’s all about putting it all together as one team, and hopefully we can keep that going.”Hitting their stride · Junior forward Christina Marinacci is averaging 8.8 points this season for (18-11) USC. The team has won six straight contests. – Chris Pham| Daily TrojanThough that sort of confidence is invaluable at any point in the season, it is almost a necessity during postseason play.One bad night and the Women of Troy know that their season could be over.“Our tournament started a few weeks ago,” Gilbreath said, alluding to the team’s mentality following a loss to Stanford that preceded its current win streak. “Right now, we’re trying to go win a championship, and we can’t afford to lose any games.”Thanks to its current streak, USC shot up the Pac-12 standings during the final month of the regular season. After the loss to Stanford dropped their conference record to 6-6, the Women of Troy caught fire thanks to contributions from numerous players, including junior forward Christina Marinacci, who is coming off a stellar performance this past weekend against the Washington schools. She was rewarded by being named Pac-12 Player of the Week.“You can really tell that [the team is playing well] by the way we practice,” Marinacci said. “Hopefully we’ll carry it into the next game, whether we get Oregon State or Washington State.”USC’s ascent to the top of the standings was rewarded with a first round bye, but the team hopes that the extra day’s rest does not affect its game.“For us, we need to just focus on what we’re doing,” Marinacci said. “I don’t think any other team can beat us, but we can definitely beat ourselves.”The key to USC’s success during its run has been defense. The Women of Troy have held opponents to under 60 points in four of the last five games.The Women of Troy will play Washington State, a team that finished 11th in the conference and won just five league games, entered the Pac-12 tournament having lost eight of its past nine games. The most recent of those losses was to USC on March 3.Tipoff for Thursday’s game is scheduled for 7:15 p.m. at the Galen Center.last_img read more
