BURLINGTON — When Middlebury Union High School freshman Tim Shea picked up the puck at the blue line with less than two minutes remaining in sudden death overtime of the Division II boys’ hockey state championship against the top-seeded Stowe Raiders Tuesday evening, destiny seemingly took over.

Shea walked in alone on Stowe goaltender Matt Rauch, faked him to the ice and lifted the puck into the net at University of Vermont’s Gutterson Field House to win the Tigers their first state hockey title in 15 years. The final score was 2-1.

My first wife was born on St. Patrick’s Day, which made it easy for me to remember her birthday (editor’s note: no ex-wife wisecracks). My second wife’s birthday is Valentine’s Day, which I can also remember, but can’t get dinner reservations.

By Andrew Stein



BRISTOL — Bristol selectmen learned at a Monday meeting that plans for repair of two key bridges in town are coming together, but that residents should not expect for the spans to be in full working order any time soon.

A highway official explained the state’s multi-year plans for repairing the one-lane bridge on Route 116 that crosses the New Haven River in the southern part of town, and town officials signed an agreement that will lead to repair of the closed bridge at the base of South Street just below the village.

ADDISON COUNTY — Until early this year, plastic disposal was not an issue that Ferrisburgh resident Ann Poskas had to think too hard about.

When Casella Waste Systems discontinued its plastic bag recycling program, stating that the thin film clogged its systems, Poskas began storing her bags.
