VERGENNES — Paving in Vergennes this fall will largely focus on the city’s northwestern streets, City Manager Mel Hawley told aldermen at their meeting on Tuesday.

We remember Michael Jordan, scoring champion, dunker, unstoppable offensive force.

Too often we forget Michael Jordan, six-time All-NBA First-Team All-Defense, one-time NBA Defensive Player of the Year, the guy who clinched one title by stripping the ball from Karl Malone.
