Andy Kirkaldy: Failure to ban Russia shows money talking

“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.”

VergFallsBldg3349.jpg

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.

Middlebury Swim Team tips Winooski to earn first win

Posted on July 18, 2016 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



MIDDLEBURY — The Middlebury Swim Team earned its first win of the summer on Thursday, defeating visiting Winooski, 163-124.

Because of Winooski’s low numbers, coaches for both teams decided not to count relay results in the final score — Winooski could field relay teams in only four of 20 races.

Organizers said the meet was also designated as a collection evening for the HOPE food shelf and that a generous amount of personal care items and non-perishable foods were set to be delivered on Friday.
