Pet of the week: Sophie

Posted on May 21, 2018 |
By Debbie and Danny Grace



Sophie image_11.jpg

Hi I’m Sophie! I’m told that I am a very smart, fun and loving addition to the Grace family in Bristol. When my family first acquired me they started to work hard on training me to perform various tasks such as fetching a ball; what they didn’t realize is that I was actually learning how to train them! My human mom Debbie says I’m like a little child since I’ve been known to throw a fit if I don’t get my own way… I’m a big gal so I can literally drop myself on the floor and refuse to move!

The bill, which the Senate passed last week, also will require that seed dealers accept orders for corn and soy seeds that are untreated with neonicotinoid pesticides for the 2019 planting season.

Vermont can spark interest in agritourism

Posted on May 21, 2018 |
By Lisa Chase



Picking apples, learning how maple syrup is made, tasting heirloom tomatoes, milking a cow — all of these activities are part of the growing trend of agritourism.

A few generations ago, most families had relatives, friends or neighbors living on farms, if they weren’t farmers themselves. Today the age-old tradition of visiting farms and ranches to experience agriculture and celebrate harvests is seeing a revival in Vermont and throughout the U.S. and other countries.

I was hired at Bristol Elementary School in the spring of 2012, when I moved to Vermont, to be the literacy support teacher for grades 3 through 6. I had taught grades 2 through 8, mostly reading, writing, social studies and science, for over 20 years.

Letter to the editor: Don't shortchange teachers to pay off the wealthy

Posted on May 21, 2018 |
By Bob Zeliff



I don’t know anyone who likes to pay taxes. Most of us would like to see our taxes reduced.

At the same time, Vermonters have long wanted and consistently voted for the best schools for their kids. By our State Constitution this means equal education for all Vermont students. We don’t have a few great schools with many cheap but poor-quality schools like many states.
