As a 16-year-old student at Mount Abraham Union High School, Jordyn Wells traveled to Ghana in West Africa for a study-abroad program. In the coastal village of Kopeyia, just north of the tropical Atlantic, she met Victoria Ghalley and forged what would become a lifelong friendship.

VERMONT — Could humorous stories about Vermont fish-and-game wardens make for good television?

Hollywood producer Geoffrey Sharp, who grew up in Middlebury, believes it could.

Sharp recently inked a “shopping agreement” with “Vermont Wild” series author Megan Price and will spend the next year pitching the idea to television networks. Price’s five “Vermont Wild” books are a conglomeration of insightful and often-funny stories told from the perspective of Vermont game wardens.

BRISTOL — It’s never a good sign when a roof needs a tarp.

Unfortunately that’s exactly what happened this summer at the Bristol Federated Church. Wind and water have taken their toll on the building at 37 North St. and the roof has begun to fail.

“Small things had started happening,” said Diana Bigelow, a member of the church’s fundraising committee. “Then earlier this year it became a major issue.”

BRISTOL — Mary Arbuckle found her voice on the side of a Bristol mountain.

In the 1970s, after graduating from Boston University with a degree in philosophy and religion, she moved north to build a cabin in the woods. It wasn’t philosophizing from the dooryard of her new mountain home that changed her life, however — it was a simple gift.

“Someone gave me a camera for my birthday,” Arbuckle said. “When I started exploring with it, it was like a light bulb went off for me.”

MONKTON — Jessika and Steven Yates didn’t move to Monkton for the apples.

In 2008, after 10 years living abroad on boats, the Yateses fell in love with some land on Monkton Ridge and they bought it. That land came with a house, amazing views and some apple trees — 120 of them.

“At first we saw the orchard as this fun challenge,” said Jessika Yates, who now manages those trees.

A lot has happened since then.

Bristol eyes land for rec building

Posted on September 10, 2018 |
By Christopher Ross



BRISTOL — The Bristol Recreation Department is one step closer to getting a new rec center, next door to property owned by the Bristol Recreation Club.

The town of Bristol on Aug. 20 signed a deal to buy a home on 0.59 acre at 76 West St. for $166,500, the assessed value of the property. The fate of the house there remains unclear.

Voters must approve the purchase at next year’s annual town meeting.

In the long run, the move could save Bristol money by consolidating programs in one location, according to officials.

MIDDLEBURY — English is not his first language. America is not his first culture. But this has not stopped 17-year-old Sepehr Belar from pursuing his childhood dream of becoming a firefighter.

That dream, so common among children the world over, just happens to have begun in Tehran, Iran, where Belar grew up, and where fire-related tragedies left a strong impression on him.
