Ferrisburgh offers deal to McGregor

Posted on October 22, 2018 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



FERRISBURGH — The Ferrisburgh selectboard last week agreed to make a formal offer to former Sand Road dog rescuer Sheila McGregor that could bring to a close what had been a costly and at times heated legal dispute.

MIDDLEBURY — The Middlebury Union High School boys’ soccer team put the wraps on a successful regular season on Saturday by rallying past visiting Missisquoi Valley Union, 2-1, for the Tigers’ seventh straight win.

Panton town hall cupola, kitchen debated

Posted on October 18, 2018 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



PANTON — Seven months after residents at a contentious Panton Town Meeting backed spending money to repair and upgrade Panton Town Hall, much new work has been done, including a new handicap access ramp to the main meeting space and new accessible bathrooms to serve that space.

Facing up to aging as an athlete — but not giving up

Andy Aging Athlete Andy Kirkaldy and Peter Quinn CMYK.jpg

Our elliptical machine talks to me all the time.

It just doesn’t sit in the corner of the family room while I do my best to ignore it.

“I’m here,” the elliptical tells me. “I’m waiting. It’s only a matter of time. You’ll see. It will be you and me and tai chi.”

The result was a 2-1 win over visiting Windsor that avenged a 4-3 loss to the Jacks on Sept. 14 and boosted the Otters to .500 at 6-6.
