Rebels Take Tigers with Second Half Comeback 22-16
By Mike Cameron
    It would be good policy not to mention a particular call in last year’s playoff game between the Tigers and South Burlington Rebels.  You might just be in a heated debate.   Most Tiger fans feel that a “late whistle” late in that game could very well have cost them a shot at another state Division 1 Title.

Around And About Addison County-Granville
By M. Stuart Parks
    Granville was not always Granville.  It was chartered August 8, 1781 by Governor Thomas Chittenden and was named Kingston because it was granted to Reuben King and six members of his family along with fifty plus other grantees.  The first proprietors’ meeting was held in the spring of 1783 at Windsor where Reuben King was elected Proprietors Clerk.  The following year, 1784, the proprietors offered one hundred acres of land to any woman willing to come to Kingston with her family and make a permanent settlement.  Mrs. Daniel King was the first to accept this offer and her husband Daniel became the first Justice of the Peace.  Daniel King also built the first sawmill and gristmill for which he received four one hundred acre lots.  The first child born in town was their son, Henry King.
