BRISTOL — The Vermont Land Trust has teamed up with local supporters and members of the Bristol Conservation Commission to protect the scenic corridor north of Bristol on Route 116. The “Gateway to Bristol” project is moving toward a successful outcome and conservation easements will be placed on 687 acres of farm fields and woodlands in early 2014.
Angelo Lynn’s invective of Oct. 24 (“Middlebury’s Tea Party? Rarely has this town seen an issue hijacked by a small minority”) ignores a number of important facts:

RUTLAND — Middlebury Union High School football Coach Dennis Smith stood teary-eyed at midfield, soaked head to toe, trying to take it all in Saturday night. The Tigers had just capped their undefeated season with a win over powerhouse South Burlington to capture the Division I state title.

ADDISON COUNTY — Having one’s driver’s license suspended can be the punishment that keeps on penalizing. Not having access to a vehicle for a substantial length of time can prevent the offender from getting to doctors’ appointments, to family events and — ironically — to a job to earn the money to pay off fines in order to have the driver’s license reinstated.
