MIDDLEBURY — The top-seeded Middlebury College women’s lacrosse team on Sunday rallied from a 7-4 second-half deficit to edge No. 2 Tufts, 10-9, and claim the program’s 10th NESCAC playoff championship.

Vergennes wants electric car charger for downtown

VERGENNES — The city of Vergennes is applying for a small grant that could make a big difference for local owners of electric vehicles.

The city council in late April authorized City Manager Matt Chabot to apply for the grant from the Vermont Department of Housing and Economic Development.
