Posted on September 24, 2014 |
By Gregory Dennis



World leaders are meeting at the U.N. this week, in the wake of Sunday’s historic People’s Climate March — which filled the streets of Manhattan with more than 400,000 people calling for action to curb climate change.

BRISTOL — On a virtually ideal Tuesday afternoon for running at Mount Abraham Union High School — 60 degrees, windless and mostly cloudy — the Middlebury boys’ cross country team took second and the Eagle girls were third to highlight the Eagles’ only home meet of the fall.

Tiger junior Christopher Garner finished fifth in the seven-team boys’ race for the top finish among local runners, while Eagle senior Chris Carter (eighth) and MUHS junior Nikhil Plouffe also cracked the top 10.

He tries to get out on the golf course once a week. He says that playing golf makes him feel “almost normal; ... it’s the only time I’m outside.”
