BRISTOL — In a competitive match on Tuesday, the Vergennes Union High School girls’ soccer team scored twice in the first 41 minutes and then held off determined host Mount Abraham to win, 2-0.
The win was the third straight for the 6-5 Commodores after a four-game losing streak. Unofficially, they are No. 5 in the Division-II standings.
Senior midfielder Gen Cohn, who set up sophomore Kenadi Dattilio’s pad goal in the second half’s first minute, said the Commodores have bounced back from their losing streak.
The hearing before Middlebury’s Development Review Board on Monday night concerning the proposed Fenn Gravel Pit off Route 116 in Middlebury fits the mold to the letter: it was tedious, contentious and frustrating for the public. Unfortunately, that’s the process (the applicant must present their plans in full at the initial hearing, which seldom leaves adequate time for questions) and there are few, if any, shortcuts to that first step.
A proposed railway tunnel in downtown Middlebury connecting the Main Street underpass to the Merchants Row underpass is an imaginative vision that deserves wholehearted support from town officials and community residents — and creates the opportunity to address adjacent problems that have gone unresolved for far too long.
