By Steve and Sheila Huestis



We read with great disappointment the decision of the Interscholastic Football League committee to have the high school championship games played at Rutland High School again this year.

Photographer Jim Westphalen captures Vermont countryside

Posted on September 1, 2016 |
By Addison Independent
