HarrietBrown0912.jpg

LINCOLN — Harriett “Hattie” Brown has delivered the news from Lincoln for three decades as the town correspondent for the Addison Independent. The 94-year-old is sharp as a tack and more active than most people in their 10th decade; but she decided recently that she is ready to pass the job on to another Lincoln resident.

Her last installment of the Lincoln News appeared in this past Thursday’s edition.

LINCOLN — Alison Zimmer doesn’t get much rest these days. Between her fulltime job as a physical therapist, raising her 10-year-old daughter, and competing nationally — and now globally — as an independent professional mountain biker her schedule does not leave much room for downtime.

“I don’t ever rest in the sense of real rest, (like) sitting on the couch. But after a big weekend I definitely take two days where I don’t go for a run, I don’t go for a ride,” the 33-year-old Lincoln resident said.

WINDHAM, N.Y. — Lincoln resident Alison Zimmer placed second in the downhill race at the Windham U.S. National Mountain Bike Race here on Sunday, almost certainly qualifying her to try out for the 2013 UCI (International Cycling Union) Mountain Bike World Cup — the most elite series of mountain biking competitions in the world.

Just one day earlier she handily won the Super D race, which includes cross-country and uphill stages but does not have a world cup championship.

From her Lincoln studio an artist paints Vermont's landscape

Posted on December 13, 2012 |

The light on this cloudy November day is silver and stark, giving the world a washed-out look. Just the sort of day Andrew Wyeth would have loved to paint.

When heavy floodwaters came tearing through the mountain village of Lincoln on Sunday, Aug. 28, a group of 20 community members rescued their local elementary school garden — one of Lincoln Community School's central pillars.

Together they harvested the garden, moved the school's shed and salvaged what they could. The following week, a team of second, fifth and sixth-graders began to rebuild the beds and reflect on the recent flooding.
