MILTON — On this past Wednesday at Milton the Middlebury Union High School wrestling team won three dual meets to even its record at 3-3.
The Tigers topped Harwood, 27-24; Milton, 36-18; and North Country, 36-30.
The results followed a Dec. 8 tournament at Mount Greylock High School in Massachusetts in which the Tigers went 0-3, but received strong performances from Jakob Trautwein at 195 pounds and Tyler LaPlant at 285 — both went 3-0 and won all their bouts by pin.
When House Democrats gathered a week ago in a pre-session caucus the outlines of a new legislative session began to take shape. This is when legislators and their leaders being to share their thoughts of what could be.
The process is basic to the institution, but its significance rests with the fact that the Legislature is essentially a one-party body — the Democratic Party — with Gov. Peter Shumlin of the same persuasion.
And it’s the governor who will find himself the person responsible for applying the brake more than the accelerator.
I encountered my first ever compostable, “this-cup-is-made-of-100%-corn” item a few years ago at Boloco (“globally inspired burritos”) in downtown Burlington. Little did I know that my smoothie to-go order would influence my thinking for years to come.
