ADDISON COUNTY — In recent high school baseball action, Mount Abraham won a tight contest, Otter Valley split a pair of games, and Middlebury dropped two close Metro tilts on the road.
The Vermont Principals’ Association will release Division I and II playoff pairings on Monday.
One of the events I enjoy most about living in Middlebury is the Memorial Day parade. It is such a wonderful expression of small town USA with the school bands and other music groups, the various service groups and the firetrucks from all the surrounding towns.

COLCHESTER — Saint Michael’s College men’s lacrosse senior Cooper Quenneville, a Shoreham resident and former Middlebury Union High School standout, was last week named a New England Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association (NEILA) All-Region player and chosen to participate in the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association (USILA) Division I/II North/South Senior All-Star Game, which was played this past Monday at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore.
I read with interest the front page article titled “Energy Secretary talks climate change” in the May 19 edition.
The article focused on global warming and reducing carbon emissions through renewable energy — solar, biomass, methane digesters. (There was no mention of wind turbines, for some reason.)
I agree that reducing carbon emissions into the atmosphere is very, very important.
