MIDDLEBURY — Division I Burlington on this past Wednesday won both the boys’ and girls’ sides of a track and field meet hosted by Middlebury Union High School at Middlebury College, but the Tigers and the visiting Mount Abraham and Vergennes teams, all D-II squads, had highlights.
Burlington won the girls’ meet with 145 points, with MUHS (52) edging Mount Abe (46) for second and VUHS in third (9). The already small VUHS team was shorthanded because several students, including steady point-scorers, were on a school language trip.
MONTPELIER — The Vermont House on Thursday voted unanimously in favor of a bill that would revamp the state’s search-and-rescue policy in wake of the tragic death of 19-year-old Levi Duclos on a Ripton hiking trail this past January.
The legislation would set up some interim rules requiring Vermont Department of Public Safety, with the help of local emergency organizations, to immediately respond “to every search and rescue call for help, which shall include an immediate call to the department’s search and rescue team.”
