BRISTOL — The Middlebury Union High School boys’ soccer team put pressure on host Mount Abraham for most of Saturday’s game, but it took the Tigers almost 70 minutes to crack the Eagle back line in a 2-0 victory.

BRISTOL — The Mount Abraham Union High School broke through for two early goals and controlled most of the action in what could be a pivotal victory on Saturday, 2-1, over visiting Middlebury.

The win moved the Eagles to 3-3-1 and came after a disappointing loss at Spaulding four days earlier, when they had the run of play, but lost, 2-0.

Other than scoring twice in their opener and then four times against 0-7 Missisquoi, the Eagles had scored once and been shut out three times in their other four outings.

Posted on September 20, 2018 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



NEW HAVEN — The Vermont Green Line was the ill-fated high-voltage power line that developers wanted to run through northwestern Addison County until late 2017, when sponsors pulled the plug after failing to get contracts to deliver energy to southern New England.

But now the project, which could bring millions of dollars in payments to New Haven and Ferrisburgh for hosting the infrastructure, could be back on the table.

VERGENNES — After spending about five afternoons each at the new home of Boys & Girls Club of Greater Vergennes, 15-year-old members Renee Marshall and Bethany Cram both gave it thumbs-up reviews.

On a warm Monday after school the two friends from Vergennes were relaxing on the lawn of the club’s new 20 Armory Lane headquarters — and lounging in a yard was something they couldn’t do back at the group’s old clubhouse on School Street, where each had hung out regularly for at least the past two years.

VERGENNES — The Mount Abraham Union High School boys’ soccer team broke through with a big second half on Monday to pull away from host Vergennes, 4-0.

After a scoreless first half in which the Eagles had more possession, but the Commodores countered dangerously to create as many chances as their visiting rivals, Mount Abraham asserted itself in the VUHS end.

Senior striker Weston Allred, with a hat trick, and senior midfielder William Wright, with a goal and two assists, proved to be the major thorns in the Commodores’ side.

Vergennes city manager will seek input on sidewalk's fate

Posted on September 13, 2018 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — After discussion at Tuesday’s Vergennes City Council meeting, council members decided the fate of about 1,000 feet of South Water Street sidewalk rests in the hands of new City Manager Matt Chabot.

At issue is whether the riverside stretch of sidewalk that runs south from the intersection of South Water and Roberts streets should be repaired or removed. Removing the sidewalk would save future maintenance costs. Chabot said if it were removed it would be sodded over and seeded, but no crosswalks are planned.
