BRISTOL — A team of eight quick-thinking Mount Abraham Union High School students have won the inaugural small-school state championship at the Vermont-NEA Scholars’ Bowl.

The group of scholars bested 23 other teams to win the inaugural event on Jan. 31 at Montpelier High School. The Vermont Scholars’ Bowl has been around since 1984, but this was the first year that the event divided schools into two categories, based on size.

Bristol Elementary parents seek transparency on budget process

Posted on February 5, 2015 |
By Zach Despart



BRISTOL — A group of Bristol Elementary School parents have expressed concern about local control of how their education tax dollars are spent, and are urging the Addison Northeast Supervisory Union to be more transparent.

“It seems that currently the budget is developed with a small handful of people with little opportunity for the public to weigh in,” said parent Kristin Siringo. “It’s not entirely clear how much the board is even involved in the process.”

A life at risk, and nothing to do but wait: Bristol woman needs lung transplant

BRISTOL — Kaitlin Heffernan, like many 25-year-olds, keeps her cell phone on her at all times. But it isn’t to text friends, check emails or browse the Internet.

At any moment, any hour of the day, the Bristol resident could get a call from Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, telling her to leave immediately and prepare for a double lung transplant. She’ll have just three hours to prepare for a major surgery that could take 6 to 12 hours — and will likely save her life.

BRISTOL — More than a dozen five-town residents braved the snowstorm Tuesday evening to discuss creating a food co-op in Bristol after a local market closed its doors.

Several residents pitched the idea on Front Porch Forum after Timmi Moffi, the owner of Mountain Greens, announced that the market was closing after 11 year in business.

Moffi attributed much of the store’s failure to competition from Bristol’s lone supermarket.

Posted on January 22, 2015 |
By Zach Despart



BRISTOL — A proposed Bristol Elementary School budget that would increase spending by 2.76 percent in the next fiscal year is drawing criticism from some faculty and staff who are concerned that it would cut several staff positions and hurt students.
