BRISTOL — As longtime Mount Abraham Union High School girls’ basketball coach Connie LaRose reached her 300th win at Vergennes on Thursday, current and former players praised LaRose as a coach and a person, while peers marveled at the Bristol resident’s long tenure and consistent success.

LaRose, 65, is in her 19th year heading the Mount Abe program. In the 1960s she coached a year each at the high school level in New Haven and Bristol (see related story). LaRose has won more games than any high school coach in Addison County, and her career winning percentage is about .660.

Bristol eyes possible 1.8 percent tax hike

Posted on January 28, 2010 |
By Kathryn Flagg



BRISTOL — Bristol selectmen, worried about cutting too close to the bone in the 2010-2011 municipal budget, are asking town residents to approve a 1.18 percent increase in taxes this year to fund a proposed $1.9 million spending plan.

If approved by voters at the town meeting on March 1, the budget would be supported by $1,558,632 in taxes.

“If we cut too much we’re going to end up paying for it later,” Selectman John “Peeker” Heffernan said at the board’s meeting Monday night.

Selectman Sharon Compagna agreed.

By Andrea Suozzo



ADDISON COUNTY — Ten years ago, fast Internet access was more luxury than necessity. Web sites were simpler, people purchased music on CDs instead of online, and YouTube didn’t exist. But times have changed.

Internet access is quickly becoming a necessity of modern life. In the more remote areas of Vermont, this has created problems for people like professional data analyst Ed Nelbach.

“I’m miles behind those with broadband access,” said Nelbach, a Hancock resident.
