Tigers Meet Challenge at Essex 35-21
By Mike Cameron
    When you look at the history between the two teams, it’s hard to describe it as anything but a rivalry.
    In  the mid 70’s the two ball teams were Division 2 power-houses and many felt that they could have beaten the best of Division 1 at the time.
    In Essex, Bruce Wheeler and in Middlebury Hubie Wagner coached their teams through some excellent seasons winning several Division 2 State Championships in the process.
    Leaping forward to the 80’s and 90’s and the move up to Division 1, the same standard of excellence has prevailed for both teams and that isn’t likely to change.

Lolygaggers: A Store With An Unusual Name And Even More Unusual Merchandise
By Ed Barna
    Rick Viens has found a way to keep Frog Hollow hopping.
    Lollygaggers, the store he has opened in the lower floor of the Frog Hollow district's Star Mill with help from his wife Heather, his daughter Paige and his son Brett, adds a unique ambience of fun-loving,  lighthearted playfulness to the historic downtown area. It's the kind of place where people go when they have trouble finding something different for gifts (or where they go first to avoid the difficulty), or where they stop in just to see something that lifts their spirits or gives them a good laugh.
    You might call it a medical clinic, if you believe in the old saying that we really need only three physicians: Doctor Diet, Doctor Rest, and Doctor Merryman. But others might prefer to regard it as a stealth school, since Viens keeps an eye out for fun things to do that also build knowledge or keep wits agile.
