This Thursday and Saturday, about 600 volunteers will fan out across the county in the annual Days of Caring event that launches the fund-raising campaign for the United Way of Addison County. The goal remains the same, $775,000, as it has been over the past couple of years, but the challenges are bigger than ever: on top of a lackluster economy that has yet to recover from the Great Recession of 2007-08, are disaster relief efforts to help those individuals and communities devastated by the flooding of Tropical Storm Irene.
MIDDLEBURY — Friday was another day at the office for the Middlebury Union High School football team’s offensive line, fullback Jordan Connor and tailback Marshall Hastings.
With the linemen and Connor paving the way, Hastings bolted for 161 of the Tigers 257 rushing yards as MUHS bulldozed visiting Mount Anthony, 33-12, and improved to 3-0 in their return to Division I.
