VERGENNES — The Vergennes Union High School baseball team already entered this spring with a young roster. And five key team members missed Tuesday’s season opener because of injuries, a vacation and an academic issue. And they were facing a visiting Winooski team with a 3-0 record.
In the end, none of that mattered.
MIDDLEBURY — Mickey Heinecken of Middlebury was awarded a Bonnie and John McCardell Citizen’s Award by Middlebury College this year for his outstanding service to the community.
After coaching Middlebury College’s football team for 28 years, he founded the Vermont Chapter of the National Football Foundation and Hall of Fame, co-chaired both the United Way of Addison County and the Middlebury Volunteer Ambulance Association (MVAA) with his wife Carol, and spent countless hours volunteering for a wide range of other causes.
BRISTOL — Skimmer Hellier was appointed to a three-year term by the Bristol selectboard last week to fill a vacant space in the planning commission left by Stanley Livingston.
Hellier has lived in Vermont for more than 27 years and in Addison County for 16. He moved to Bristol four years ago and is the co-owner of Stark Mountain Woodworking, a custom woodworking company based out of New Haven. His wife Jill runs New Leaf Organics, an organic farm off of Bristol Road.
MIDDLEBURY — The newest act to perform at Middlebury’s 51 Main plays some down-and-dirty rock ’n roll, but let’s just say all three members lead pretty clean lives.
No one in the band drinks or smokes. None of the three has thrown an amp out of a hotel room window. In fact, all of them pretty much have a prescribed bedtime, rehearse at a local church and need to be driven to gigs by their parents.
VERMONT — A bill currently making its way through the legislature would allow Rural Vermont to resume raw milk processing classes halted by the state in February.
