MIDDLEBURY — Some know him from the ski slopes, some know him from the pool, I met him at the ACTR bus stop downtown. Dressed in worn jeans, a brown jacket and a black ski mask pulled up over his entire face, Herb Gingrich was the typical Vermont skier, or so I thought.

MIDDLEBURY — The No. 3 Middlebury Union High School boys’ hockey team struck early and played well for three periods in Friday’s Division II quarterfinal to take a solid, 6-2 win over visiting No. 6 Burr & Burton.

Northfield also upset the Tigers in OT in the final game of the regular season. Burr & Burton finished at 9-11-1, including three losses to MUHS.

In states like Wisconsin, Texas, Oklahoma, Ohio and much of the deep South, taxpayers are taking their frustrations out on the budgets they can control — schools and towns — and selling the future of the younger generation down the drain.
In Bristol, town residents spoke clearly in a planning commission poll asking two very direct questions about where mineral extraction should be allowed. The answers confirmed past votes, surveys and public comments that have overwhelmingly opposed gravel pit operation near the village center or in the town’s conservation districts.
