By Alice Eckels

Letter to the Editor: Trump anniversary 'scream' planned

Posted on October 30, 2017 |
By Peter Grant



From the Internet:

“Americans from coast to coast plan to commemorate the one-year anniversary of President Donald Trump’s 2016 election win by screaming into the void.”

Let us meet at the gazebo on the Middlebury green at 5 p.m. on Nov. 8 for a big scream of horror at the past year.  Wear something red (which color prompted Munch to paint his famous painting “The Scream”) and bring copies of that picture.

Peter Grant, Bristol

BRANDON — Neither rain nor wind nor mud nor the No. 3 seed Otter Valley Union High School field hockey team could slow visiting No. 6 Mount Abraham on Thursday, when the Eagles scored early and used dominating defense all over the field to defeat the Otters, 1-0, in a Division II quarterfinal.
