Bristol, USDA agree on water system loan

Posted on August 1, 2016 |
By John Flowers



BRISTOL — Bristol officials will pursue a deal with the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) for a combined total of $1.1 million in loans to cover a major improvement and expansion of town water system infrastructure in the western part of the village.

Local selectboard members had hoped the USDA would provide 45 percent of the $1.1 million in the form of a grant, but ultimately reasoned that a loan of 2.25 percent — in the absence of a grant — is a better deal than Bristol could have negotiated with a bank.

The Turkey tail fungus was named for its appearance

Posted on August 1, 2016 |
By Addison Independent



The Outside Story Lichens.jpg

During my walks through the woods these days, I am often accompanied by curious children. These children, who are my own, notice many things that I often do not, and they are filled with questions. Who made that track? Why does this grow here? What kind of mushroom is that? With fledgling naturalists — including one who wants to grow up to be a mycologist, an entomologist or a zoologist, depending on the day — it’s nice to have a few things in the woods I can identify easily at any time of year. Enter Trametes versicolor, the turkey tail fungus.
