ADDISON COUNTY — How many local teenagers drink and drive? How many Addison County high school students have had sex? Of that number, what percentage used a condom? Do middle school students really consider suicide?

BRISTOL — Rep. David Sharpe, D-Bristol, has been able to keep a close eye on the state’s financial health as a longtime member of the House Ways and Means Committee.
MIDDLEBURY — Frances Boardman was in charge of baking the cake for just about every one of her family members’ birthdays until a fall — ironically, in the kitchen — forced her to retire her pots and pans around two years ago.

BRISTOL — At their Nov. 7 meeting, Bristol selectboard members pushed ahead with one of their top five priorities: to jumpstart development of housing for younger townspeople seeking a starter home and for older residents seeking to downsize into a smaller home.
