The Greeting

Students from St. Mary's Academy colored Easter eggs at Hoosick Falls Senior Center.

Thursday, April 18, 2019

Good day, Bennington County!  Whether you celebrate Passover, Easter or merely gather with family and friends this weekend, travel safely -- and keep an eye out for magical rabbits bearing candy.

Lots of news to report here in Bannerland:

• If you're behind the wheel, put the phone away. Even if you're at a red light. Bennington Police are watching.

• Mount Anthony Union High School is turning to restorative justice instead of one-size-fits-all school discipline.

• There's big news of local interest in Montpelier, where a bill regulating PFAS in drinking water has passed the state House and Senate.

• There won't be a trial in the death of Helen Jones of Arlington, as Timothy Butler has pleaded guilty.

How do you catch up on all this news? A digital-plus weekend subscription is a great way to take time out and  learn about  what's happening in your home town.

Have a great week!

The kayak's owner was found safe, out of the water. Emergency crews responded around 4:30 p.m. when the kayak was spotted near the Park Street bridge.
