By Evan Johnson



I was in fifth grade on Sept. 11, 2001. It was a Tuesday, and that meant gym class. Wearing our standard school uniform (navy blue sweatpants and white t-shirts), we walked single file with gym sneakers gripped to our chests to the local recreation center in downtown Brattleboro.

We returned to our desks two hours later to find the nation in a state of emergency.

NEW HAVEN — On the first night of the No. 1 Auto Parts Demolition Derby last week, 64 vehicular hulks that would never be allowed on public streets each made a hard, metal-twisting drive for victory and a piece of a $1,400 cash purse in what is arguably the biggest night of the Addison County Fair and Field Days. The lineup included 22 six-cylinder beaters, 22 four-cylinder rattletraps, 10 eight-cylinders jalopies, eight past-their-prime minivans and two pickup trucks that didn’t have a lot of pickup left in them.

By Evan Johnson



I was fixing a cup of coffee a few weeks ago, when I mentioned to a colleague that I was moving.

Racing brings atmosphere of fun, drama and danger to Devil's Bowl

DevilsbowlEJ_9394.jpg

Benson — As I enter the pit at Devil’s Bowl Speedway last Friday, security guards wave pickup trucks pulling trailers through the gates as the stands begin to fill with spectators.

In the few hours leading up to the start, the pit has a palpable tension. Drivers and crew prowl the pit with urgency, faces shaded by baseball caps, gripping tools or cans of soda. Tires are inflated. Engines are primed, ready to go.

LINCOLN — As the inventers of renowned flavors like Cherry Garcia and Phish Food, Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield know a winning ice cream flavor when they taste it. But this Monday, the founders of arguably the most popular name in ice cream faced a challenge. For the third year, they trained their finely tuned taste buds on the flavor, texture, color and composition of seven flavors of ice cream, designed and named by the campers and management of Zeno Mountain Farm; a decision that was anything but easy.
