FERRISBURGH — The Ferrisburgh selectboard and more than 30 residents at a Tuesday meeting at the town office building backed a plan to install traffic lights and a crosswalk at the intersection of Route 7 with Old Hollow and Stage roads.

MIDDLEBURY — Mary Hogan Elementary School 6th-grader Heath Odell and a handful of his classmates darted to the Elderly Services Inc. music room last Friday morning, where they each picked an elderly partner whom they led to the center of the welcoming space.

New Haven kayak ledges race, winner CMYK.jpg

BRISTOL — The temperatures were up on this past Saturday afternoon for the 11th annual New Haven Ledges kayak race down the New Haven River in Bristol, and so were the water levels.

Forty-nine whitewater paddling competitors dipped in at the starting gate just above Eagle Park on the Lincoln Road before plunging into a 1.3-mile course that required them to navigate waterfalls of up to 15 feet in height — that one’s called “The Toaster.” Overall they would drop around 130 feet in elevation in a little more than a minute and a half.
