BRISTOL — One could argue that stay-at-home moms make the best entrepreneurs. They’re used to long hours, multi-tasking, and inventing quick fixes on the fly.
For the last year and a half, a New Haven mother of three (all under the age of 11) has been building her own business, and has already found quite a bit of success.
Sarah Kaeck is the founder of Bee’s Wrap, a company that produces beeswax-coated cloths used for food storage. She said her products are more environmentally friendly than using plastic containers, plastic wrap or tin foil.
ADDISON COUNTY — Local high school lacrosse teams are waiting for the official playoff seedings after finishing up their regular season this past weekend.
Middlebury girls’ lacrosse closed out the campaign with two wins in its last three games late last week to post a regular season record of 10-4. According to the Vermont Principals’ Association website, that puts the Tigers in a three-way tie for fifth place in Division I.
ADDISON COUNTY — All three local high school teams played against Division I teams in local high school baseball action in the latter part of last week, but two of those local teams are in Division II.
Otter Valley was the only winner, D-I Middlebury lost in its final regular season game, and Mount Abe lost twice, including a narrow loss to the top-ranked team in D-I.
The Vermont Principals Association was set to announce playoff pairings early on Monday.
Pardon me for thinking this armrest
was ours. For assuming what they were
singing had more to do with our lives
than theirs. What, I’m guessing, brings
you here, too. It’s hard to read the titles
above the tenor’s head, without wanting
to say the same thing to you. How chance

ADDISON COUNTY — As the local high school softball regular season ended late last week, Vergennes won twice, Otter Valley split a pair and Mount Abe won its only game late in the week. All secured home games at least in the first round of the Division II playoffs.
Surging Middlebury won its final game, but will likely be seeded 10th in the D-II playoffs, which means away-contests in the tournament.
The Vermont Principals Association was set to release playoff pairings early on Monday.

The Tiger boys, seeded 13th, lost, 6-1, to No. 4 Rutland in their first round game this past Wednesday.
