MIDDLEBURY — The Physics Department at Middlebury College will host a viewing of the upcoming total lunar eclipse at the college observatory on Sunday evening, Sept. 27, from 8:30 to 10:30 p.m. The observatory, atop McCardell Bicentennial Hall, will be open to the public for viewing the moon provided the skies are mostly clear.
VERGENNES — Despite injuries, the Vergennes Union High School girls’ soccer team has been competitive in all of its games this fall and won three of them.
Unfortunately, Tuesday’s home game vs. Rice was an exception. The Division I Green Knights (4-2) got two early scores that might have taken the wind out of the Commodores’ sails, and Rice coasted to a 6-0 victory.
The Commodores fell to 3-4. Two of those losses had been by one goal, and the team had played well in a 2-0 setback against 6-1 Milton on Saturday.
VERGENNES — Addison Northwest Supervisory Union officials have just begun grappling with one key provision of Act 46, unification, but another challenge looms — spending caps.
MIDDLEBURY — A member of an ad hoc committee charged with reviewing the only development proposal for a town-owned parcel off Bakery Lane urged the selectboard on Tuesday to instead shift its focus to a Mill Street property that he believes would be better suited for a mixed-use project — and potentially a multi-story parking garage.
VERGENNES — An elephant in the room and a moving student speech highlighted Vergennes Union High School’s 11th annual Peace One Day celebration on Monday morning on the school’s soccer field.
The student-organized all-school event honors the United Nations International Day of Peace, which the U.N. in 2001 adopted as Sept. 21 after a grassroots effort organized by filmmaker Jeremy Gilley.
BRISTOL — Middlebury boys placed seven runners in the top 10 to highlight Tuesday’s five-team meet at Mount Abraham Union High School on a sunny fall Tuesday.
Henry Ganey won the boys’ race on the hilly Mount Abe course in 18:44 as the Tigers scored 23 points to outpace second-place Colchester (50). Rice (92) took third.
The Eagle boys, led by Jude Bunch in 17th (20:17), took fourth at 101, with Richford (122) in fifth.
MIDDLEBURY — Local runners and walkers enjoyed pleasant early fall weather and good trail conditions during the 12th running of the annual TAM Trek, this past Sunday.
The event, organized by the Middlebury Area Land Trust (MALT), benefits conservation work and trail maintenance on the 18-mile Trail Around Middlebury, affectionately known as the TAM. By the end of Sunday’s races, MALT raised $10,000 in sponsorships and registration fees, an amount that MALT’s Executive Director Carl Robinson said is comparable to funds raised in past years.
