Joint football effort worth a serious look

Football can play an important role at a school. Back when Mount Abraham Union High School adopted the sport, I remember co-athletic director Jeff Stetson making the point that football would serve students that Mount Abe’s other fall sports — soccer and cross country, which both favor greyhounds, not Great Danes — did not. Over the years, it’s fair to say he’s been proven right, regardless of the program’s ups and downs.

ADDISON — Vermont transportation officials have declared an emergency in an effort to leverage more federal assistance in fixing the Champlain Bridge and in developing short-term solutions in getting commuters across Lake Champlain between Addison County, Vt., and Essex County, N.Y.

ADDISON — Robert Smith, co-owner of the Chimney Point Dairy Farm in Addison, has 100 acres of corn and 45 acres of soybeans growing on land a tantalizing six miles away in New York state.

“It’s so close you can almost taste it,” Smith said on Monday.

So close, yet so far.

Smith tried to harvest that corn last Friday, the day authorities closed both lanes of the Champlain Bridge due to concerns about the 80-year-old span’s structural supports. Officials would not make an exception to allow Smith’s agricultural equipment to cross over Lake Champlain on the bridge.
