Posted on September 29, 2016 |
By Herb Russell



As a proud rail supporter and founder of Friends of Rutland Rail, the group formed to save the Western Corridor’s Ethan Allen Amtrak service, I ask that you support Sue Minter for governor.

Opinion: A piece of history goes up in flames

Posted on September 29, 2016 |
By Sanford Rouse



A national treasure gone up in flames! Why? Why? Why?

The Cornwall-Salisbury Covered Bridge connected the towns for people to travel to work for many years. It also made it lot easier for a lot of farmers in the surrounding areas to work and made their fields of crops more accessible for them to tend.

The bridge was built in 1865 when Abe Lincoln was our 16th president of the U.S.; a great piece of history cannot be denied.

By Addison Independent



WEST HAVEN — Middlebury’s Justin Comes finished second in the 35-lap Central Vermont Motorcycles Sportsman Modified feature to provide the local highlight on Sunday in dirt-track racing at Devil’s Bowl Speedway.

Comes looked like a sure winner until lap 31, when two drivers crashed to bring out the caution flag and set up a restart.  Winner Bobby Hackel of New York restarted on Comes’ rear bumper, then the pair raced side-by-side for two laps before Hackel scooted away coming to the white flag and leaving Comes to settle for second.
