Swimming hole headaches_6754 cmyk.jpg

BRANDON — Ginger Gould, who grew up in Forest Dale and still lives there, says there’s nothing better than a refreshing dip in a cool Vermont stream on a hot summer’s day. Kids walk from up to a mile away on the hot pavement to take a dip near her home in the shallow pool in the Neshobe River created by a cluster of rocks just off of Route 73 in Brandon.

“They’ve been doing it for as long as the river’s been there, and that’s fine with me,” Gould said.

Zues with plane.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — We should all have a nickname like Nathan Zuses.

The World War II veteran goes by “Zues,” pronounced the same as “Zeus,” the mythical Greek God of the sky, lightning, thunder, law, order and justice.

Seventy years ago, Zues, as he likes to be known, was toting a 50-caliber machine gun through the Ardennes region in Belgium as part of a U.S. Army anti-aircraft unit fighting in the Battle of the Bulge.

FD8268 antique farm equipment.jpg

Outside, at the back of the Antique Farm Equipment demonstration area, brothers Josh Parks, 35, and Zak Parks, 30, are working on the engine of a 1938 McCormick-Deering tractor, trying to get it running. They’ve been working on it since Sunday.

They’ve overnighted a head gasket from a specialty supply company. They’ve replaced a valve, but it’s still not running. Josh cranks hard at the hand crank at the front of the tractor. No go.

The two men’s expressions and focus on the task at hand are as intense as any brain surgeon’s.
