Letter to the editor: Rep. Sharpe supports Hardy, Bray for state Senate

Posted on October 22, 2018 |
By Dave Sharpe



I enthusiastically support and endorse Ruth Hardy to represent Addison County along with Sen. Chris Bray in the Vermont Senate. The job of Senator requires an individual with a broad understanding of the needs of Vermont citizens and the ability to collaborate with a relatively small number of colleagues who must cooperate in order to create quality and effective legislation. And, after the work is done, to be able to come home and explain what the legislature has accomplished to Vermonters at their doors, and in meetings such as the annual Town meetings.

Eagle football falls to Fairfax in finale

Posted on October 22, 2018 |
By Addison Independent



FAIRFAX — Host Fairfax rumbled to a 38-6 victory over the Mount Abraham-Vergennes football team on Saturday in an interdivisional matchup. The Division III Bullets improved to 5-3, while the D-II Eagles wrap up their season at 1-7.

The bright spot for the Eagles proved to be the 57 rushing yards on 16 attempts for senior back Kevin Pearsall. Although that did not approach the 200-plus yards he rambled for the week before, that total was good enough to give him 1,037 for the fall. Pearsall became the program’s first 1,000-yard rusher in a number of seasons.
