BRISTOL — The Vermont State Police’s drug task force arrested Katherine Heffernan, 27, of Bristol on Tuesday, Aug. 7, for knowingly possessing heroin with the intent to distribute it, U.S. District Court documents show.

(VHB), who were on hand to explain the span replacement plan to around 25 people at a meeting at the East Middlebury United Methodist Church.

NEW HAVEN –– Each year the inviting scent of warm, sweet maple syrup pulls fairgoers into the Addison County Maple Sugarmakers Association building at Field Days. The sugarhouse is a must-see for most people at the fair, many of whom have a favorite maple treat.

Gospel choir entertains and inspires at annual concert

Posted on August 9, 2012 |
By Lauren Davidson



NEW HAVEN — As the Addison County Gospel Choir performed before its biggest audience of the year on Tuesday night at Addison County Fair and Field Days, the singers sensed it was an important moment when they sang their rendition of “I’ll Fly Away.”

The song was dedicated to Alice Quesnel, a fan of the choir who died in the summer of 2007. The night of the annual Field Days concert five years ago, Quesnel told her husband, Victor, that she would fly away. She passed away later that night.
