BRISTOL — The Mount Abraham Union High School girls’ soccer team broke through for a season-high scoring goal total on Saturday and claimed a 3-1 victory over visiting Middlebury.

MIDDLEBURY — People who routinely travel past the Middlebury municipal building at the intersection of College and South Main streets may soon have a clearer view — and one that may not be more pleasing to some people, at least not initially.

But the translation he does is cultural — explaining what goes on in Washington from an international perspective.
