By John Flowers



CORNWALL — Three Cornwall residents have expressed an interest in filling a vacancy on their town selectboard that was created by the sudden death last month of incumbent Dave Sears.

Sears died following complications from a stroke on July 11, at age 56. He was widely known as a longtime broadcaster of Middlebury Union High School varsity football and Middlebury College sports. But he was also a very civic-minded individual who had served for 35 years on the local fire department, and five years on the Cornwall selectboard.

FD8268 antique farm equipment.jpg

Outside, at the back of the Antique Farm Equipment demonstration area, brothers Josh Parks, 35, and Zak Parks, 30, are working on the engine of a 1938 McCormick-Deering tractor, trying to get it running. They’ve been working on it since Sunday.

They’ve overnighted a head gasket from a specialty supply company. They’ve replaced a valve, but it’s still not running. Josh cranks hard at the hand crank at the front of the tractor. No go.

The two men’s expressions and focus on the task at hand are as intense as any brain surgeon’s.
