LINCOLN — Those Bristol-Lincoln area residents, and visitors, seeking relief from the recent heat wave should be aware that Vermont State Police on Sunday ordered the towing of a number of cars parked on the Lincoln Road near Bartlett Falls on the New Haven River.

According to a VSP press release, the cars “posed a significant hazard since they blocked the flow of traffic.”

VSP stated the cars towed were those that remained after they had issued warnings to citizens at the popular swimming spot. The cars were towed at about 2 p.m.

Champs begin season at home with setback, victory

VERGENNES — After losing at home on June 26 in a sunny Champlain Valley Swim League opener, the Vergennes Champs won big on Thursday in a cloudier Thursday meet moved to their home pool because their opponents’ pool is not ready for action.

On Tuesday last week visiting top CVSL team The Edge coasted past the Champs, 293-181, a misleading score considering the visitors treated the closing free relays as exhibitions and essentially forfeited all of them. Twelve-year-old Madelyn Giroux picked up two victories to become the only Champ to win more than once.
