Bristol eyes land for rec building

BRISTOL — The Bristol Recreation Department is one step closer to getting a new rec center, next door to property owned by the Bristol Recreation Club.

The town of Bristol on Aug. 20 signed a deal to buy a home on 0.59 acre at 76 West St. for $166,500, the assessed value of the property. The fate of the house there remains unclear.

Voters must approve the purchase at next year’s annual town meeting.

In the long run, the move could save Bristol money by consolidating programs in one location, according to officials.

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.

But when it flies the tiny iridescent scales that cover its wing tops harness the light to produce a shimmery blue color. To witness its takeoff is to witness a kind of transformation.

Bristolitness377.jpg

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.

BobRussell8383.jpg

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.
