The Greeting

HOLLY PELCZYNSKI -- BENNINGTON BANNER

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!

DAVID LACHANCE — BENNINGTON BANNER
A member of the North Bennington Cold Water Support Team wades into the rain-swollen Roaring Branch of the Walloomsac River on Monday to retrieve a kayak. 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.
