BRISTOL — When a blue minivan with Florida license plates pulled into the Bristol Maplefields on West Street at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 7, onlookers could barely believe their eyes: A male driver got out of the car completely unclothed.

“The only things he was wearing was a pair of sandals and a credit card,” Bristol Police Chief Kevin Gibbs reported.

On seeing the nude man, a bystander immediately called the police. But contrary to what the caller and some fellow bystanders apparently expected, the police did not arrest the man.

By Andy Kirkaldy



PANTON — A small group of Panton residents last week rejected a plan to borrow $40,000 to repair the cupola that sits atop Panton Town Hall, but town selectmen may not yet be ready to order its removal.

Panton officials have in recent years discussed renovations to Town Hall that would include bathrooms and a kitchen that could transform the building into a community and visitors’ center.

Bristol armadillo_2260[1].jpg

BRISTOL — It is unfortunately not unusual to encounter dead critters along the rural roads of Vermont. Skunks, raccoons, squirrels porcupines seem to be the primary victims, with the occasional deer mixed in.
