WEST HAVEN — Addison’s Chuck Bradford set a Devil’s Bowl Speedway asphalt-surface record with his sixth straight win on Friday. Devil’s Bowl’s half-mile track was resurfaced to asphalt in 2010.
Bradford claimed the 15-lap Portland Glass Mini Stock feature for the sixth straight time, breaking a tie with fellow Mini Stock racer Chris LaVair, who won five in a row earlier in the summer, and former Renegade racer Jon Miller, who set the mark in the track’s first year.
SOUTH BURLINGTON — The Middlebury Union High School field hockey team split two recent road games, and stands at 2-1. Next up for the Tigers is their home opener this coming Wednesday vs. Burlington.
Last Friday, the Tigers edged host Hartford, 2-1, as Mikayla Humiston scored a pair of goals, both in the first half. The first came at 8:35, and the second came 4:33 before the break, with an assist from Makayla Foster.

Area schools opened up recently and, as in years past, I visited a kindergarten class to photograph some of the newest students in the county. Most of my time was spent with kids before the first bell of the day rang. Some of the kids were eating breakfast, two were quietly playing house, one boy was coloring and others played in small groups or by themselves. As I worked I was reminded how precious and how complicated life can be for a kindergartner.
Lately, people keep coming up to me and saying, “Your front porch looks absolutely beautiful.”
They are correct.
They are also being very polite. Because what they really mean is, “Your front porch appeared to have been under renovation for an inordinately long time. It’s good to see it finished. Finally.”
The world is facing the worst refugee crisis in decades. Over 4 million Syrians have fled war, terror and destruction.
These are families like ours. What can Vermonters do? Is there a means by which we can welcome even a small fraction of these families? Doing so is not only the right thing to do; it’s the Vermont thing to do.
How might we get started?
