ADDISON COUNTY — The effort to unite Little League Baseball play across Addison County continued during July’s all-star season, when three teams made up of players from around the county held their own against their Chittenden County counterparts.

The joint all-star teams — formed from players still technically under the Mount Abraham, Vergennes and Middlebury league umbrellas — followed up a regular season of countywide play at all Little League levels — Farm, Minors and Majors — among the leagues’ teams.

“Follow the money.”

– Advice from the then anonymous Deep Throat source advising Washington Postreporters Carl Bernstein and Bob Woodward during the 1970s Watergate Scandal

“It is increasingly difficult to comprehend why the IOC, WADA, the IAAF and other major bodies opted to ignore evidence of systematic wrong-doing. Alternatively it is easy to comprehend, if you conclude that actually they don’t really care about doping as long as the dollars continue to flow.”

VERGENNES — The owner of Grist Mill Island in the Vergennes falls is proposing to add five apartments to the two buildings on the island, for a total of nine overlooking Otter Creek.  

Three of the apartments would replace office space in the Grist Mill itself and two would be carved out of a now empty horse barn.

The June proposal followed the Vergennes Development Review Board’s May rejection of a 10-apartment plan submitted by Mahaiwe LLC, of which major city property owner and Ferrisburgh resident David Shlansky is listed as the manager.

MIDDLEBURY — First-place Northern Division squad Orleans/Essex/Caledonia Kings swept three games from the Addison County American Legion baseball team on Wednesday and Thursday as AC’s season concluded late last week.

AC finished at 7-16, representing a six-win improvement over 2015. Almost all of AC’s 18 players will retain their eligibility for at least two more years, as only Chris Leach, Dylan Raymond and Calvin Desforges on the current roster will be too old to play next summer.

CASTLETON — Eight local players will take the field for the Vermont football all-star team on Aug. 1 at Castleton University’s Spartan Field in the 63rd Annual Shrine Maple Sugar Bowl vs. New Hampshire.

Vermont’s recent high school graduates will be seeking just the state’s 13th win in the series and first since 2000, when then Mount St. Joseph Academy Coach Brian Grady and his quarterback, Mike Keenan, led the Green Mountain State to victory. Keenan set records in that game and went on to do the same at Middlebury College.
