VERGENNES — The host Vergennes Union High School baseball team took an early lead over Middlebury on Tuesday and never looked back, defeating the Tigers, 10-4.
The Commodores improved to 10-5, while the Tigers dropped to 5-9.
MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury state Rep. Betty Nuovo has never been one to be intimidated by numbers — whether they be state statistics, budget numbers or long odds.
So it should come as no surprise that the county’s longest-serving legislator is not in the least bit fazed by the number 80, which was the birthday she marked late last year.
“I feel great,” said Nuovo, a Democrat who has spent more than a quarter-century in the Vermont House and will be asking voters this fall to give her another two years.
VERGENNES — Larry Carlson was on the waiting list for an apartment in the Vergennes Senior Housing building for more than three years. Once construction began, he checked back every week to see if he would get in. Now a resident of the newly opened facility off Armory Lane, he is thrilled with his experience.
“As soon as the architect first came out, I was over to the offices and signed up. I was here every single week to check and see how the progress was coming,” said Carlson.
