VERMONT — Spring has long been the time when Vermonters Green Up. This fall Vermonters will be encouraged to “Button Up.” Saturday, Oct. 5, is the first annual Button Up Vermont Day of Action. Vermonters have a powerful opportunity to participate in a local effort — or start their own — to encourage friends and neighbors to lower their energy bills this winter by weatherizing their homes.
MONTPELIER — The Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department points out that three new hunting rules passed by the Legislature are now in effect.
1. A person shall not take or attempt to take any wild animal by shooting a firearm, a bow and arrow or a crossbow while on or within 25 feet of the traveled portion of a public road.
2. It is also illegal to shoot a firearm, a bow and arrow or a crossbow across the traveled portion of a public road.
MIDDLEBURY — The Champlain Valley football team came to Middlebury Union High School on Friday night with the same 4-0 Division I record as the Tigers. At least for that evening, any further resemblance between the two teams was limited to the number of players each put on the field and to the fact that all wore helmets and cleats.
WINDSOR — The Mount Abraham/Vergennes football team scored two dramatic touchdowns late in Saturday’s Division III clash to defeat host Windsor, 34-32, in overtime.
Tommy Lee Hodsden’s rushing touchdown and two-point conversion in overtime overcame the 32-26 lead the Jacks had just taken on a 10-yard pass from Nick Kapuscinski to Hunter Patenaude to open the extra session. But Windsor’s two-point try failed.
BRANDON – The Otter Valley Union High School football team scored seven times in the first half on the way to a 77-24 Division III win over visiting Mount St. Joseph on Saturday.
The OV offense, including its second string after the break, was never stopped, and Vytas Nielson also returned an interception for a score as the Otters celebrated their Homecoming Day.
