A milestone in the Bristol town planning process occurred recently when the Bristol Planning Commission signed off on its third draft of the revised town plan and sent it to the Bristol Selectboard for review.

ADDISON COUNTY AND BRANDON — The Otter Valley boys’ soccer team has the honor of kicking off the local high school sports season this fall: The Otters host Proctor at 4:30 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 31, when also they will christen OV’s new athletic field behind the building.
Two-and-a-half hours later the OV girls’ soccer team is next up, with an away night game at Mount Anthony. By Sept. 8, when the Middlebury Union boys’ soccer team opens with a 7 p.m. game at Fair Haven, all 18 varsity teams at OV, MUHS, Mount Abraham and Vergennes will have hit the fields or the trails.
This school year will see almost all Middlebury Union High School sports competing at the Division II level, with the exceptions being field hockey and both lacrosse teams.
Other Tiger athletic programs are already in D-II, including basketball, soccer and boys’ cross-country. Still other girls’ programs are now technically in D-I, but are in the process of being moved to D-II, according to MUHS activities director Sean Farrell. Because the numbers are within appeal guidelines, Farrell expects the Vermont Principals’ Association to OK the changes.

BRIPORT — Abundant rainfall coupled with late-summer heat and humidity have contributed to one of the worst mosquito outbreaks ever, though cooling temperatures this week should soon take some of the sting out of the latest adult hatch, local insect-control officials said.
“Things have gone south; it’s not good right now,” Paul Doty, manager of the Brandon-Leicester-Salisbury-Goshen (BLSG) Insect Control District, said late last week. He noted a recent spike in the mosquito population — particularly in the Lake Dunmore region.
