WEST HAVEN — Bristol’s Josh Masterson and Ferrisburgh’s Brad Bertrand both won races on Saturday night at Devil’s Bowl Speedway.
Masterson ran to his third consecutive win to open the season in the Central Vermont Motorcycles Late Model division. Masterson swept both halves of a two-segment, cumulatively scored race. Despite being tangled up in three incidents in the second leg; he scored a perfect two-point low total tally. Ferrisburgh’s Jamie Aube took fifth.
BRISTOL — Gale Green was the big winner in the Sodbusters Horseshoe Pitching Club’s annual Father’s Day Open this past Sunday. Green took the title in Class A with a 7-0 record. He tossed 180 ringers out of 242 shoes — that’s nearly three ringers in every 4 throws.
There were 65 competitors in the tourney at the Sodbusters’ Bristol courts.
Results were as follows, with the win-loss record, and ringer percentage:
MIDDLEBURY — Team Morgan prevailed on June 19 in the American Legion Forbes/Costello Tournament at Ralph Myhre Golf Course in Middlebury. Team Maiden Lane took second place, followed by Adams Electric in third.
MIDDLEBURY — The Middlebury Mayhem AAU basketball club will from July 18 through 22 offer its annual Basketball Skills camp for youths entering grades 3 through 9.
BRISTOL — On July 4 in Bristol a silent auction of autographed National Football League memorabilia will benefit the Mount Abraham/Vergennes Union High School Cooperative Football Team.
According to organizer Geoff Pearsall a wide variety of memorabilia, all with certificates of authenticity, will be offered at a booth on the Bristol Town Green during the town’s Independence Day festivities. All funds raised will go to directly toward the team’s expenses, including renting of lights for the first-ever home night game vs. Bellows Falls on Sept. 9.
MIDDLEBURY — Sue Minter coordinated upgrades to hundreds of miles of the state’s roads and dozens of its bridges during her brief run as secretary of the Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans).
The Waterbury Center Democrat is now getting a first-hand glimpse of those improvements as she campaigns to become the next governor of Vermont.
Time for just a couple thoughts for the summer solstice.
I do believe the Cleveland Cavaliers deserved their victory over the Golden State Warriors on Sunday, and congratulations to the long-suffering fans of Northeast Ohio.
It’s been well-documented Cleveland’s last major championship came in 1964. There’s been plenty of heartbreak since then.
Give Democrat gubernatorial candidate Sue Minter credit for being out-front pushing sensible gun-control legislation and helping to change the conversation among candidates running for governor.
Minter has called for stronger gun-safety legislation in Vermont since the mass shootings in Charlotte, N.C. a year ago. She has advocated for more thorough background checks for those purchasing a gun, and most recently for a ban on selling assault weapons for non-military purposes.
