Several of these Vermonters will discuss their experiences on the Camino de Santiago pilgrimage route (or simply the “Camino”) at Bristol’s Lawrence Memorial Library this Thursday at 7 p.m.

BRISTOL — Five-town residents got a first look at two very different kinds of fiscal year budget scenarios for Mount Abraham Union High School, at a recent forum.

One budget included roughly $250,000 for ongoing repairs on the 47-year-old Bristol facility. The other sketched out what payments could look like on a 20-year, $20-million bond, which is considered the minimum needed to adequately renovate the building.

Greenwood restored sign.png

BRISTOL — The sign that was installed over the middle gate of the Greenwood Cemetery in Bristol in 1904 stood proudly for many years.

But the elements took their toll on the metal gateway, which stood just north of Route 116 near the base of Stone Hill, less than a mile west of the village. And the sign, which had been damaged at least three times since it was installed, was removed after being badly damaged the last time about 25 years ago.
