ADDISON COUNTY — Many girls’ soccer players from Mount Abraham, Middlebury, Otter Valley and Vergennes union high schools earned postseason honors this fall from either the Lake Division or the Marble Valley League C Division.
Mount Abe’s Ernesta McIntosh earned the highest honor, being named the Lake Division offensive player of the year. She was also chosen as one of four Eagle Lake Division First-Team All-Stars, joining Jesse McKean, Lydia Pitts and Anna Hauman.
WINNECONNE, Wis. — The Middlebury College women’s and men’s cross country teams finished eighth and 24th, respectively, in the NCAA Division III championship races hosted on Saturday by the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh in Winneconne, Wis.
Panthers Sebastian Matt and Abigail Nadler each earned All-American honors with their respective finishes. The Williams women and the Wisconsin-Eau Claire men won national crowns.
It’s funny, field hockey has a reputation as a sport that is constantly being interrupted by whistles.
I thought of that on Sunday afternoon while I sat in front of my computer and watched the Middlebury College team battle Bowdoin for the NCAA Division III title and win, 1-0.
Many more were probably glued to televisions watching a sport in which every play begins and ends with a whistle, and the athletes have to gather for a committee meeting before they decide what to do next. Yes, that would be football.

WASHINGTON — Thanksgiving is the largest meal many cooks prepare every year. Its centerpiece — the turkey — is the largest dish most cooks ever encounter, and many are not experienced at roasting one. USDA wants consumers to know that a range of resources, from smartphone apps to its 30-year Meat and Poultry Hotline, exist to help consumers through any food preparation conundrums this holiday season, wherever and whenever they may arise.

NEW HAVEN — “This is a large project and there’s a lot of pros and cons,” said New Haven selectboard chair Kathy Barrett, as Anbaric Transmission continues to woo New Haven as the site of its proposed $150 million converter station and as New Haven continues to weigh its options.
“There’s a lot of information out there — accurate and inaccurate. I think that everyone has to become as informed as possible and make their own personal decision.”
