So hot, even the dog needed a popsicle....
I posted this message on Facebook last week:
HELP! Mom of month-old baby with a brain mushy from nighttime feedings seeks inspiration for her bi-weekly column on Vermont life. Sooooo: Anything you’d like to see written about Vermont? Any unanswered Vermont questions? Anything Vermont-related keeping you up at night? I’ll entertain any ideas!
My desperate plea generated more responses than I’d expected; unresolved Vermont issues are apparently keeping some people up at night.
This Father’s Day, the Gong family did our part to increase Vermont’s native population: at 3:30 AM, our fourth daughter, Abigail Esther, was born at Porter Hospital’s Birthing Center in Middlebury.
WOODSTOCK — Mount Abraham Union High School senior Jona Scott earned Division II and overall medalist honors at the state championship meet at the Woodstock Country Club on Wednesday by firing a 69, but his Eagle team fell one stroke short of a D-II team championship.
BRANDON — The No. 7 Otter Valley Union High School softball team broke an early 2-2 tie on Wednesday on the way to a 12-2 win over visiting No. 10 Lake Region in a Division II first-round game.
The 10-7 Otters are scheduled, weather permitting, to travel to Lyndon on Friday to take on the No. 2 Vikings (15-1) in a quarterfinal. LRU finished at 8-9.
