An easy answer for track DQ controversies

By ANDY KIRKALDY Before every varsity girls’ lacrosse game, the athletes line up for a stick check. The referees place a ball in the pocket of each of their sticks to make sure they are legal — not too deep — and thus don’t give the athlete a ball-control advantage.

That official ritual popped into my head when I read about the controversial disqualifications of a Burlington long jumper and a Champlain Valley girls’ relay running team at the May 30 New England qualifying meet in Essex.

Vikings ground Mt. Abe Eagles in D-II final

By ANDY KIRKALDY
BURLINGTON — Monday afternoon’s rain let up to allow the Division II high school baseball final to be played at the University of Vermont’s Centennial Field, but unfortunately for top-seeded Mount Abraham, No. 2 Lyndon and ace righthander Buddy Lamothe never let up.

Lamothe tossed a complete-game two-hitter, striking out 16 Eagles and walking just one, as the 18-0 Vikings avenged their 2-0 loss to Mount Abe a year ago with a 9-0 victory this time around.

Flu closes Shoreham school early

By JOHN FLOWERS
SHOREHAM — Students at Shoreham Elementary School got their summer vacation off to an early start this year — not to go out and enjoy good weather, but rather because a good number of kids were under the weather.

When around five students in the fifth-grade class exhibited flu-like symptoms on Thursday, June 11, school officials — in consultation with the Vermont Department of Health — decided to release that entire grade for summer vacation.

New Haven man's collection finds home in new museum (with slideshow)

By KATHRYN FLAGG
NEW HAVEN — “I’m a pack rat,” said Ralph Farnsworth, standing in the jam-packed old barn where his father once milked a herd of 10 cows. “I figure somebody’s got to have it, so it might as well be me.”

“It” is everything — or, to be more specific, “anything old,” as Farnsworth puts it.

The casual passer-by at Farnsworth’s North Street home in New Haven will notice a few signs of this fascination with the antique. Arranged neatly on the groomed lawn by his barn are a few old tractors, all in pristine condition.

By ANDY KIRKALDY

POULTNEY — For three years, talented Otter Valley Union High School softball teams have been knocking on the door of a Division II title. In 2006, four-time defending champion Lyndon slammed it shut on the Otters, and in 2007 and 2008 lower seeds knocked OV out of the tournament.

On Friday night before a big crowd of mostly Brandon-Pittsford area fans at the Poultney Recreation Center, the Otters walked through that door and evicted the Vikings in a nerve-wracking D-II final, 3-2.

The two local nonprofits were among a list of nine Vermont public transit providers that will share in the federal grant awards, confirmed last week by the state’s congressional delegation.

Dairymen call for new pricing plan

By KATHRYN FLAGG
ADDISON COUNTY — Dairy farmers around the country are rallying behind a price stabilization program that some dairy farmers hope could help reduce volatility in bulk milk prices, which plummeted this winter to a low of roughly $10 per hundredweight, $7 or $8 below the cost of production for Vermont farmers.

But with milk prices projected to rebound somewhat this fall, advocates for the new program say farmers need to move fast before rising bulk prices dissuade some dairymen from pushing for change.
