Palmer, a 1988 Pro Stock champion, returned to competition in 2018 after years away — his last win came on June 20, 1992.

Matt Dickerson: Coping, Part 2: Wildlife noisy on Otter Creek

Posted on July 26, 2018 |
By Matt Dickerson



Dickerson, Matt ONLINE.jpg

I heard the osprey before I saw them. Though their high-pitched peeps may be less majestic than their famous talons-first plunges into water from 60 feet in the air, they are loud.

I looked into the sky and spotted the talkative raptor soaring at treetop level, circling its nest with a fish dangling from its talons. Was it excited about its catch? Or had it been disturbed from its nest by our presence or the presence of an angler fishing from the bank nearby?

ST. ALBANS — The Middlebury Marlins swim team wrapped up their Champlain Valley Swim League regular season on Thursday with a 254-188 setback at St. Albans.

Although the Marlins won just once during the CVSL season, a number of their swimmers have excelled and should do well at the CVSL meet, at Essex on July 27 and 28, and the summer championship meet, at Hartford’s Upper Valley Aquatic Center on Aug. 4 and 5.

As a smaller CVSL team the Marlins could also be competitive in a statewide division vs. comparable teams at the Vermont meet.
