BRISTOL — Visiting Colchester dealt the Mount Abraham Union High School field hockey team a disappointing 1-0 setback on Tuesday afternoon.
The 5-4-1 Eagles had defeated the 4-4-2 Lakers by 3-1 in Colchester earlier this season, but this time the Lakers earned a 10-4 advantage in shots on goal in avenging that setback.
Eagle sophomore goalie Chessley Jackman played well in the loss, making nine saves and also kicking the ball out of harm’s way a number of times. Laker goalie Abby Ladd stopped four shots in the shutout.
Both Jill Charbonneau and Robin Scheu are good candidates for the Vermont House. However, Jill believes we should stand by Vermont’s no fracking law no matter where fracking for natural gas has occurred, and she hasn’t supported Vermont Gas coming through our area.
Robin, as a member of the Addison County Economic Development Corporation, voted to approve their application.
We will be voting for Jill Charbonneau along with Amy Sheldon.

In August of 2017, I will celebrate 50 years in health care. I have been incredibly privileged to have cared for thousands of people from all walks of life, from millionaire actors in California to the homeless on the streets of Albany, and more recently, migrant Hispanic workers that help keep Addison County dairy farms in production.
I am writing to support Ron Holmes of Middlebury for High Bailiff for Addison County. As a summer resident of Lake Dunmore, I have always felt well protected when Ron Holmes was the man in charge of law enforcement in our area.
Ron has helped to keep our roads and property safe in the busy summer months when traffic is at an all time high between Middlebury and Salisbury. Ron is personable, responsive as well as responsible, and of the highest moral character.
As Election Day nears, I write to encourage folks to vote for Robin Scheu for state representative from Middlebury. Robin has a long history of serving our community both as a professional and as a volunteer. She currently serves as executive director of the Addison County Economic Development Corporation. She has worked tirelessly to help small businesses thrive and to increase jobs in Addison County.
Now deep into the campaign season, you might be feeling overwhelmed by all the noise. Let me suggest that you focus for a moment on local election races. I will be voting for Robin Scheu for Middlebury State Representative because of the values I know she will bring to the job. How do I know? I have known and worked with Robin for many years. And while you might trust my judgment, you can form your own by examining her life’s work and choices.
