Sophie image_11.jpg

Hi I’m Sophie! I’m told that I am a very smart, fun and loving addition to the Grace family in Bristol. When my family first acquired me they started to work hard on training me to perform various tasks such as fetching a ball; what they didn’t realize is that I was actually learning how to train them! My human mom Debbie says I’m like a little child since I’ve been known to throw a fit if I don’t get my own way… I’m a big gal so I can literally drop myself on the floor and refuse to move!

By Christopher Ross



BRISTOL — Natural gas service is coming to Bristol.

After months of intense discussion, the town selectboard on Monday night voted, 3-1, to pledge their signatures on a proposed license agreement with Vermont Gas Systems (VGS) as soon as the remaining contract kinks get worked out.

The decision surprised many of the 50 in attendance at the Holley Hall meeting, who had expected to continue a discussion about a proposed survey — or even a vote by residents — that would gauge town interest in signing up for natural gas service.

Hi, I’m Gus!

I’m 13 months old, a rescue and I live with my best friend Becky Shackett in Bristol. When I was 5 months old I was hit by a car and lost a rear leg so now I’m a “Tripod.” That disability doesn’t get me down though. I still run 5k races with Mom, who says I’m very smart and have a very playful personality.
