BRISTOL — Bristol resident and former Marine John Shepard had always hoped to take his daughter Natasha, 13, to visit the North Carolina coast, the territory he loved when he served in the U.S. Marine Corps in the 1980s.

According to Shepard’s ex-wife and still good friend Marion Martin, a Mineville, N.Y., resident, John and Natasha planned to go this coming November.

Posted on December 19, 2013 |
By Zach Despart



BRISTOL — The Bristol Planning Commission on Tuesday took a look at the final two proposed sites for a new firehouse and determined that one aligns with the town plan and the other does not.
