Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Bristol was a nice place to live in the past and suddenly it has become even nicer.

Many thanks to everyone involved in the New Haven River Bridge, from the planners and all those whose photo appeared in the Addison Independent cutting the ribbon as well as to all those who showed up early for work in all kinds of weather and whose photo did not appear. The bridge is sleek, smart, handsome, modern, easy to use. Many thanks.

BRISTOL — There’s a new dentist in Addison County; or more accurately, an old dentist.

Many residents remember the dental practice Dr. Jim Cossaart owned in Middlebury from 2000 to 2008. After returning to his native Kansas for six years, Cossaart and his wife, Deb, returned to Vermont this summer and last month opened up a new practice in Bristol.

The Cossaarts opened the new office, Bristol Park Dental, at the beginning of October. Jim Cossaart said it’s nice to be back in Vermont.

BRISTOL — By August 2006, exchanging fire with insurgents was so routine that the U.S. Marines in Lance Cpl. Jon Turner’s platoon in Ramadi, Iraq, expected it like clockwork.

So when Turner, just after he rose one morning and began preparing to go out on post, heard the distinctive thoomp of a 120-millimeter mortar fired from outside the compound, he wasn’t surprised.

By Zach Despart



BristolLandfill3189.jpg

BRISTOL — Officials in Bristol are at odds with the state over when to close the town’s landfill and how to pay for it.

In August, the Agency of Natural Resources sent the town four notices of alleged violations for the landfill, which is located off Pine Street. The town was able to address three of them, but one, that alleges that Bristol has failed to save enough money every year to pay for the closure of the landfill, has left the selectboard in a bind.
