This coming June, the Outdoor Writers Association of America (OWAA) is hosting their annual conference at Jay Peak up in northern Vermont. It’s a great gathering of outdoor communicators: writers, photographers, filmmakers, editors and publishers, and others affiliated with the industry including reps of various manufacturers. I’ve been to this conference twice in the past four years: when it was held in Montana in 2016 and then again in Arkansas in 2019. As enjoyable as those locations were, and as much as they had to offer in outdoor recreation, I’m even more excited to have the conference...

MIDDLEBURY — Both boys’ basketball teams at Middlebury Union High School on Friday evening used tough man-to-man defense and full-court presses, and both the host Tigers and visiting BFA-St. Albans probably also could have taken better care of the ball against that pressure. For three quarters the Tigers were more successful applying and dealing with defensive pressure, but in the fourth quarter the Bobwhites amped up their press and forced seven turnovers. The Bobwhites also scored 26 of their 62 points in the period to wipe out an 11-point Tiger lead and come away with a 62-57 victory. MUHS...
