It has not happened often in recent years, but Vermont teams of graduated seniors swept New Hampshire on Saturday in the Merchants Bank-Rotary Twin State Basketball Classic at the University of Vermont’s Roy L. Patrick Gymnasium.
Former Champlain Valley Union High School center Greg Gause scored seven points and led his team with six rebounds as the Vermont boys whipped their Granite State counterparts, 75-66.

It was the Vermont boys’ first victory since 2004. New Hampshire still owns an 18-10 advantage in the series.
Alison Wettstein and Katie Edgerton were key players in the Vermont girls’ 65-58 triumph, only their second victory in the last 11 meetings.

Wettstein chalked up eight points, and hit one of two tries from beyond the three-point arc.
Edgerton hit a single point and chalked up three of the smart-passing Vermont team’s 17 assists.

    I would like to explain the charges of unlawful restraint because it sounds really awful. No we didn’t hold anyone hostage. We were simply standing in front of some VT Gas/Michel’s trucks. They were in no way restrained. When the men decided to leave, they simply backed up and took off. The police have been hired by VT Gas and they sure do have a way of turning a phrase.

    Mr. Recchia refers to this action as a “last-ditch” attempt to scuttle the pipeline. Wrong again! This was far from our last attempt to bring sanity and reason to our state officials who refuse to listen or help.

    Nate Palmer and Kari Cuneo and their families are not the only land owners who have fought this immoral taking of their land. So many folks have lost that fight for lack of time and money. It’s quite intimidating to go before the Public Service Board and their team of lawyers, to sit down at a table filled with VT Gas attorneys and not have anyone to watch your back and advise you.

    When people are up against the wall, they fight back any way they can. Peaceful protests not only express our frustration but they help bring attention to what is happening to our friends and neighbors..

    So Mr. Recchia, we are not done!
