By the way for August 16

By Addison Independent



Homeward Bound, the Humane Society of Addison County, is creating its own “Little Pet Food Pantry,” stocked with donated food that can be used by folks without enough resources to adequately feed their beloved four-legged companions. With that in mind, Homeward Bound is seeking donation of a sturdy glass-front hutch to use for its pantry. The nonprofit will replace the glass with plexiglass, so it’s OK if the glass is damaged. If you have one to sell or donate, please email pictures and info to [email protected]

ADDISON COUNTY — Summiting mountains is always easier with friends.

That’s the philosophy behind the Young Adventurers Club, an offshoot of the Addison County-focused Breadloaf Section of the Green Mountain Club.

Lauren Bierman took over as director of the Young Adventurers Club, or YAC, in 2016 with the intent of getting her young sons, seven-year-old Ty and five-year-old Sam, exploring Vermont’s mountains, woods, lakes and streams. She also hoped to burn some of their endless energy in the process.

Posted on August 9, 2018 |
By John Flowers

But a hotly contested race for sheriff and a crowded runoff for the Addison-4 House district are giving Addison County residents — and particularly Democrats in the Bristol area — extra reasons to vote on Aug. 14.

Local interest is also being generated by Ethan Sonneborn, a 14-year-old Bristol youth who will compete for the Democrat nomination for governor.
