In the past two weeks I’ve heard and read a lot about team character and chemistry. It’s always struck me as an athlete and an observer the intangibles matter, and for sure three recent teams have done nothing to change my mind.
STARKSBORO — In 1965, Lyndon Johnson was president, Apollo 11 had yet to land on the moon, a first-class stamp cost a nickel and a gallon of gas 31 cents.
It was also the year Joyce Shepard started working as a cook at Starksboro’s Robinson Elementary School. She retired in this past summer, after 48 years.
“I just liked working with the kids,” Shepard said. “It kept me young.”
Principal Patrick Hartnett likened Shepard’s tenure to that of a baseball Hall of Famer.
Mount Abraham captured state titles in field hockey and boys' soccer this past weekend, while Middlebury football won to advance to the state final vs South Burlington Nov. 9. Trent Campbell and Ben Kaufmann snapped these photos.
Flu season is upon us yet again.
