LINCOLN — It took excavators only a few hours to dismantle the old Lincoln Community School (LCS) playground last week. The park designed to replace it will require the entire summer to complete.

After a yearlong delay, Potato Hill Park is finally getting built.

A $260,000 project made possible by a $100,000 grant from the Vermont Land and Water Commission Fund, plus matching funds raised by Friends of LCS, Potato Hill Park is designed to be much more than a school playground.

BRISTOL — What began as a simple maintenance call devolved into a giant headache for about 100 water customers in Bristol last week.

After an old valve broke near the intersection of Pine Street and Taylor Avenue, water service in the immediate area was temporarily shut off for repairs on Wednesday. Taps flowed again by 6:30 that evening.
