BRISTOL — The creation of a “co-housing community” is being discussed for three historic homes in downtown Bristol, the Tomasi and Peake houses on North Street, and the nearby 12 North St.

Jim Mendel and Peg Kamens, the founders of the Common Ground Center in Starksboro, recently purchased the three historic, white buildings with the hope of renovating many of the currently unlivable spaces on the properties to accommodate multiple families interested in forming such a community.

By Xian Chiang-Waren



BRISTOL — Trent and Abby Roleau always knew they wanted to have their own farm, a dream that few people can achieve in their early 20s.

Then, early this year, an email from the Vermont Land Trust landed in their inboxes. VLT was notifying its email list that it was seeking applications for a conservation project that would protect 687 acres of woodland and farmland on Route 116 north of Bristol village, land currently owned by the Farr and Fuller families. The Roleaus decided to throw their hat in the ring and drew up a business plan.

BRISTOL — Porter and Dave Knight of Bristol have watched their Fresh Air child grow for the past 9 years. This year will be the 10th summer 14-year-old Elijah Hedrington, of the Bronx, has visited the Knights. “He’s fit right into the family since the very beginning,” Knight said. Porter believes that hosting a Fresh Air child is just as eye-opening for her family as it has been for Elijah. “Having a Fresh Air child helps your family grow as much as it helps the child grow. They see things differently but so do you,” she said.

BRISTOL — Last week’s cleaning of the septic system on the Bristol Recreation Field raised eyebrows when workers found many condoms and what town officials were told were at least five hypodermic needles in waste pumped from a separate tank belonging to the Hub Teen Center.

Workers informed Recreation Club officials, who in turn brought the findings to town administrator Bill Bryant, the recreation department, the police department and the staff of the Hub.

The Recreation Club also wrote a letter asking Hub officials to address the situation.
