And remember it is one part sugar and four parts hot water to mix then cool it before putting it in feeders.” Some might say that there are a lot of flowers on trees and plants so feeding hummingbirds is not needed. But, what are we to do when they tell us that they would like to be fed?

MIDDLEBURY — Master Kellie Thomas, owner and head instructor of K.I.C.K.S., is always looking for ways to help empower women through her TaeKwon Do classes and special self-defense workshops. Recently, Thomas decided to look into promoting and supporting other local women business owners.

The Eagles fell to 6-8, but are still well positioned for a home playoff game in Division II, which has only five teams with winning records.

Coach Jeff Stetson said the Eagles believe they’ve got a good shot at a second straight D-II title, and they will enter the tournament this year with a better record than 2016’s 5-11.
