BRISTOL — In the past two weeks, Bristol police have dealt with a variety of incidents, including ones involving unruly citizens, thefts and sick people and animals.
During the period Bristol police:
• On Oct. 31 received a report that a credit card was stolen and used at two banks in the village.
ADDISON COUNTY — How many local teenagers drink and drive? How many Addison County high school students have had sex? Of that number, what percentage used a condom? Do middle school students really consider suicide?
These are just some of the questions that a statewide risk survey has sought to answer for more than a decade.
BRISTOL — Rep. David Sharpe, D-Bristol, has been able to keep a close eye on the state’s financial health as a longtime member of the House Ways and Means Committee.
MIDDLEBURY — Frances Boardman was in charge of baking the cake for just about every one of her family members’ birthdays until a fall — ironically, in the kitchen — forced her to retire her pots and pans around two years ago.
