Host Colchester held the Tigers scoreless in the second half and rallied from a 28-20 first-half hole to win, 34-28. Bailey Olson scored the winning touchdown in the final minute, taking a short flat pass on fourth down from quarterback Llewey Powell and eluding a couple defensive backs for a long run down the right sideline.

BRISTOL — At rest, the blue morpho butterfly folds its wings and displays the dark earth tones of its underside, a camouflage that protects the delicate flying insect from predators.

BRISTOL — Bristol Fitness, that vibrant little gym in the basement of the Old Bristol High School, changed ownership this month and now has a new name: BFIT.

Kim Jacobs, who developed and managed Bristol Fitness for nearly two decades, purchased the business on Aug. 1 from her former employer, Burlington-based EDGE Sports & Fitness.

The walls of BFIT will soon get a new paint job — in lighter colors — but they won’t be sporting televisions any time soon.

BRISTOL — Mount Abraham Union High School administrators did not have to look far and wide for a new program head when boys’ soccer coach Mike Corey stepped down last winter after leading the program since 1995.

New varsity coach Bob Russell, a Mount Abe middle school social studies teacher, was not a surprising choice: He had coached the Eagle boys’ junior varsity team for several years, and before then the 8th-grade boys for several more.

Letter to the editor: Making childcare available is essential for businesses

Posted on August 20, 2018 |
By Sarah Kaeck
