MIDDLEBURY — The second-seeded Middlebury Union High School girls’ lacrosse team outworked and outscored visiting No. 7 Brattleboro in a Division I quarterfinal on Friday, taking a 16-5 second-half lead on the way to a 16-10 win.
Sisters Chrissy Ritter (a sophomore with six goals) and junior Katie Ritter (five goals, two assists) grabbed the scoring headlines.
For years, the governor has been repeating a mantra: Vermont is bad for business. Its taxes are too high, its environmental regulations too onerous, its schools too expensive, he says.
