BRANDON — A mother and daughter were killed in a head-on collision on Route 7 in Brandon just south of Otter Valley Union High School last Friday afternoon.

According to police, Kathryn Long, 63, and her mother Ruth Long, 93, both of Sudbury, were killed when their 2004 Subaru Legacy station wagon crossed the centerline and hit a Proctor Gas truck head on.

Brandon Police Chief Chris Brickell said the accident happened at about 4:30 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 15, and it prompted police to close Route 7 to traffic in both directions for several hours.

Bristol Wall Fall 2.jpg

BRISTOL — High winds this past Sunday sent bricks from a downtown Bristol building crashing onto pavement below. Fortunately no one was injured.

Sometime after 5 p.m. on Nov. 17 high winds dislodged hundreds of bricks from the west wall of the structure, located at 24-26 Main St., building owner Cheri Jackman said. The bricks broke one of the windows in the building, which formerly housed The Village Corner Store.

Jackman wasn’t sure when the mess would be cleared.

By Andy Kirkaldy



FERRISBURGH — The Ferrisburgh selectboard on Tuesday evening will interview six candidates interested in filling the vacancy created by the recent resignation of longtime board member John DeVos Jr.

DeVos announced his resignation in an Oct. 22 letter to Selectboard Chairwoman Loretta Lawrence, citing “recent events” that made it necessary to “step back from some of his responsibilities.”

DeVos had served on the board since the mid-1990s, and Lawrence called his resignation “a tremendous loss.”

Editor’s note: This is the last in a four-part series about agriculture and immigration reform.

MIDDLEBURY — When I asked Honorio how he got to the United States, he responded with one word.

Corriendo,” he said. Running.

Two and a half years ago, when most 17-year-olds in the United States were getting ready for the prom or searching for their first summer job, Honorio was trekking the Arizona desert alone, in search of a better life.

Opinion: Town should fix, not replace

Posted on November 21, 2013 |
By Barbara Shapiro



These are tough times. It’s appropriate to return to the frugality catchphrase of the Depression: Use it up, wear it out, make it do or do without.
