ADDISON COUNTY — The Middlebury Union High School baseball team’s first win since 2014 — which came at the expense of county rival Vergennes — highlighted local high school baseball in the latter half of last week.

Unfortunately, that Thursday afternoon victory proved to be the only collective positive result, as MUHS, VUHS, Mount Abraham and Otter Valley all came up short in a series of other games, all against top Division I competition.

MIDDLEBURY — The Middlebury Union High School girls’ lacrosse team on Monday shook off cobwebs from spring break, a 17-day layoff from their last game, and a rally by visiting Burr & Burton to improve to 3-0 with a 13-8 victory.

The Tigers bolted to a 5-1 lead in the first 12 minutes, but early in the second half the Bulldogs cut the lead to 7-6 and had a free-position shot lined up.

Andy Kirkaldy: Brady should keep fighting NFL in court

Posted on April 27, 2016 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



For the record, I believe New England Patriots employees at the January 2015 AFC championship game deflated footballs to the lowest legal limit of 11.5 pounds per square inch preferred by quarterback Tom Brady. Cold weather did the rest, as has been proven by everybody from Lynn, Mass., 7th-graders to Washington, D.C., think-tankers.

That act led us to the saga of Deflategate, the latest chapter of which was written on Monday, when the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit reinstated Brady’s suspension.

Bank teller, city police help feds track down multi-state criminal

Posted on April 25, 2016 |

VERGENNES — It was just a routine call to Vergennes police on a Monday morning, in this case Nov. 30, 2015, made by an employee of the Monkton Road branch of Merchants Bank — there were suspicious people outside the bank in a car.

But because that call was made and because police followed up, 10 days later U.S. marshals arrested a New Jersey man, Arun Aftab, 33, on a federal felony weapons charge.

Eagles tally a very big win over Knights

BRISTOL — Mount Abraham Union High School sophomore softball pitcher Audrey Shahan might never enjoy an easier pitching win in her career.

Certainly Shahan did her part on Thursday vs. visiting Rice, allowing four hits and just one first-inning unearned run while striking out six Green Knights in her five-inning stint.

But Shahan hardly needed to be that sharp. The Eagles used 23 hits (including three homers), 12 walks, 11 stolen bases, eight wild pitches and nine Rice errors to win, 32-1, and improve to 2-0 with the five-inning victory.
