CORNWALL — When times are tough, you find out who your real friends are.
Three weeks after being seriously injured in a fall, Cornwall resident Brian Trombley is finding out he has more friends than he could have ever imagined. The evidence has been popping up daily in his family’s kitchen in the form of casseroles and other tasty meals, courtesy of some folks he had never even met before.
MIDDLEBURY — Tucked away at the base of a terraced slope overlooking the Otter Creek Falls on the Marble Works property in downtown Middlebury stands a shiny plaque flanked on each side by several large, granite stones.
The plaque reads, “Stay as long as you can, when you must go, take it all with you all of your days.”
BRISTOL — A Bristol man on Monday pleaded innocent in Addison Superior Court, criminal division, to misdemeanor charges of domestic assault and interfering with access to emergency services, after he allegedly struck a woman several times and then took her cell phone away to prevent her from calling authorities on Nov. 1.
Jason P. Vincent, 30, was lodged on $2,500 bail at the Chittenden County Correctional Center following the alleged incident at a home off Briggs Hill Road.
RUTLAND – In the end, after two 10-0 teams clashed in Saturday’s Division I football final at Rutland High School, there was no doubt which was better.
No. 1 Middlebury Union High School shut down No. St. Johnsbury’s high-powered attack, rolled up 322 yards of offense to 190 yards for the Hilltoppers, claimed its 22nd straight victory, and, most importantly, earned its second consecutive title by outscoring St. J, 28-7.
RUTLAND — Saturday’s conditions at Rutland High School seemed perfect for the balanced offense of the No. 1 Otter Valley Union High School football team to win the Division III title — no wind to slow the potent OV passing that complements the team’s bruising ground game led by running back Carson Leary.
