BRISTOL — Mount Abraham Union High School on Saturday sent 143 freshly minted graduates into the world with good wishes wrapped in prose, song and the letter “P.”

“Prepare yourself for a panoramic, pragmatic, participatory promenade through powerful, profound prose that may seem pedantic, and please refrain from propelling projectiles until the pronounced peroration point prevails,” graduation speaker Scott Beckwith, an MAUHS social studies teacher, urged the seniors in an alliterative tongue twister.

BRISTOL — The oldest town building in Bristol, Howden Hall, is about to get what officials say are some much-needed upgrades.

With roughly $75,000 in the town’s Howden Hall Capital Reserve Fund, the Howden Hall Committee — with the selectboard’s approval — is moving ahead with electrical upgrades, moisture reduction measures, weatherization improvements and possibly some wheel-chair accessibility measures.

At a meeting last week, the Bristol selectboard hired project manager Ed Hanson at a rate of $50 an hour to oversee the process.
