FERRISBURGH — The Ferrisburgh selectboard at its Tuesday meeting agreed to use equipment borrowed from Shelburne to measure the speed and amount of traffic coming through the North Ferrisburgh village along Old Hollow Road.

The board took that action in response to a petition filed by Old Hollow Road resident Nick Patch and signed by about 90 residents of the area; he said “the vast majority” of the village population wanted something done.

BURLINGTON — After the No. 2 Vergennes Union High School baseball team made it through a rocky first inning in their Division II semifinal win over No. 6 Otter Valley, winning pitcher Charlie Stapleford described the Commodores as resilient.

Fortunately for the Commodores, that description proved to the prophetic.

In Saturday’s D-II final at the University of Vermont’s Centennial Field, VUHS, trailed, 3-0, after one inning against No. 13 Missisquoi — and ace pitcher Matt St. Amour.

VERGENNES — Late one recent morning, Vergennes Union High School junior Ashley Stearns burst into Judy Wiger’s science classroom.

“I’m mad at you,” Stearns told Wiger. “I’m mad at you because you’re leaving.”

The two hugged, but Wiger told Stearns she couldn’t talk to her right then: Wiger had scheduled an interview to talk with a newspaper reporter about her retirement this month after three decades at VUHS.

ESSEX — Athletes from the Mount Abraham, MUHS and VUHS teams competed in the major Essex Invitational Track and Field Meet on Saturday, an event that draws athletes from all divisions from around the state.
