MIDDLEBURY — Mary Hogan Elementary School 6th-grader Heath Odell and a handful of his classmates darted to the Elderly Services Inc. music room last Friday morning, where they each picked an elderly partner whom they led to the center of the welcoming space.

New Haven kayak ledges race, winner CMYK.jpg

BRISTOL — The temperatures were up on this past Saturday afternoon for the 11th annual New Haven Ledges kayak race down the New Haven River in Bristol, and so were the water levels.

Forty-nine whitewater paddling competitors dipped in at the starting gate just above Eagle Park on the Lincoln Road before plunging into a 1.3-mile course that required them to navigate waterfalls of up to 15 feet in height — that one’s called “The Toaster.” Overall they would drop around 130 feet in elevation in a little more than a minute and a half.

NEW HAVEN — Vermont State Police officials on Wednesday identified heroin as the substance that Trooper Brett Flansburg encountered during a March 15 traffic stop in Leicester and subsequently caused him to become ill and collapse in the parking lot of the New Haven barracks. He revived after getting several doses of Narcan, the opioid blocking drug.

Flansburg, who was an acting sergeant at the time of this incident while New Haven Barracks Lt. Jeff Danoski was in Rutland on temporary assignment, has since returned to full duty as a trooper, according to the VSP.

Natural gas firm fights legislation

Posted on April 18, 2019 |
By Elizabeth Gribkoff of VTDigger.org



MONTPELIER — The state’s sole natural gas utility and a natural gas trucking company spoke out last week against bills aiming to limit the fossil fuel market, which they say would limit their ability to provide service to more Vermonters.

One of the bills, H.51, would ban new fossil fuel infrastructure with the aim of reducing the state’s reliance on fossil fuels and lowering greenhouse gas emissions. As Vermont does not have any oil pipelines, the bill targets natural gas.
