RIPTON — Two hundred thirty-five runners and walkers experienced gorgeous weather at the 2013 Ripton Ridge Run, Sunday, Oct. 13. The record numbers showing up at this 26th annual event enjoyed sunny skies and warm temperatures, a wonderful race, an excellent lunch and a festive atmosphere. Fifty-five people participated in the 10K run, 140 in the 5K run and 40 in the 5K fun walk. They ranged in age from 3-year-old Kaiya Maclay to 82-year-old Don Lacharite.
BRISTOL — The Bristol Fire Department has been reimbursed through a federal program for expenses incurred while conducting rescues within the Green Mountain National Forest.
The department was awarded $3,363 for providing services March 5-6, 2012, during the rescue of a mother and son that were stranded on the Bristol Cliffs within the Green Mountain National Forest. A second request of $3,118, for the search and recovery of a Bristol man who drowned in the New Haven River this past July 4 is pending.
BRISTOL — Tuesday’s step one for the top-seeded Mount Abraham Union High School boys’ soccer team in the Division II playoffs was not a challenge.
Even though Coach Mike Corey went to his bench early and often and played his top players out of position for most of the game, the 14-1 Eagles coasted to a 9-0 victory over No. 16 Bellows Falls (4-8-3).
SWANTON — The Middlebury Union High School boys’ cross country team won the Northern Vermont Athletic Conference small school title on Saturday, and senior Max Moulton won the individual small school crown.
Tiger runners David Dregallo (seventh), Sam Ferguson (eighth), Ryan Biette (ninth) and Henry Ganey (10th) joined Moulton in the top 10 as the Tigers scored 35 points to beat out Rice (46) for the title.
In what is clearly an end-around tactic to derail the proposed town office project in Middlebury, a handful of town residents forced a vote on Tuesday that nullified a previous 5-1 decision supporting the measure — an action that may prevent the measure from coming to a public vote, all because of a dubious conflict-of-interest complaint.
MIDDLEBURY — The Middlebury College Museum of Art last week inaugurated its newest addition to the campus’s distinguished collection of public art — a reinstallation of Vito Acconci’s provocative and seminal sculpture Way Station I (Study Chamber). The sculpture is located adjacent to the pond at the Mahaney Center for the Arts on Porter Field Road.
In conjunction with the exhibition, Acconci will give an illustrated talk, free and open to the public, in Dana Auditorium on Thursday, Nov. 7, at 7 p.m.
