Posted on November 21, 2012 |
By Xian Chiang-Waren



BRISTOL — At their Monday, Nov. 19 meeting, Bristol selectboard members approved the Bristol Energy Committee’s recommendation to convert the town’s leased streetlights from metal halide to the more energy efficient light emitting diode (LED) lights.

carver9859.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — Peter Padua hadn’t thought much about testing his artistic abilities until he was a senior in high school in New Jersey.
