By Will DiGravio



BRISTOL — Members of the Bristol selectboard unanimously rejected a proposed gun ordinance at their meeting this past Monday, agreeing that the proposal would do nothing to prevent irresponsible gun ownership and may create more of a liability for the town.

“Throw it out. It’s completely unnecessary,” Selectman Ted Lylis said at the meeting, attended by about a dozen people. “It has just resulted in an extremely divisive situation. I don’t see the need for it.”

Bristol 10 x12.jpg

Deborah Holmes is no stranger to Addison County. If you weren’t her neighbor in Weybridge or Shoreham, you might still know her from her watercolor paintings. Holmes has been painting the Vermont scene for the past 25 years.

Last Thursday, she turned the key in her new home on Garfield Street in Bristol. Now, most of us would probably take the next week or so to settle in, unpack a few boxes, put the kitchen together, see what’s volunteering out in the gardens. But that’s not what Holmes did.

She set up an exhibit at Art on Main.

Bristolite wins vet scholarship Emily Rule cmyk.jpg

BRISTOL — Students graduating veterinary school have an average student loan debt of over $162,000, according to a survey of the American Veterinary Medical Association. This is a crushing amount of debt for young veterinarians just starting out in their career and can take decades to pay off.

BRISTOL — Pete Lossman was among the 70 or so Bristol residents at Monday night’s hearing in Holley Hall on a proposed ordinance to regulate the discharge of firearms in Bristol.
