Honors for ex-CVU gridder Matt Long

By Mal Boright

Matt Long was recently awarded a plaque as an inductee into the 2014 class of the National Football Foundation Hampshire Honor Society.
The award requires outstanding skills on the gridiron but also brains in the classrooms. A recipient must have at least a 3.2 grade average for his entire college time.
Players at Division 2 and Division 3 schools are eligible for consideration.
Long’s football travels took him from an all-state end at Champlain Valley Union High to Wesleyan University. There, he became a key player for the Cardinals, who in his senior season last fall rolled up a 7-1 record and co-championship with Middlebury and Trinity of NESCAC. It was the team’s best season in 40 years.

    almost 3 decades ago when williston started it’s development review process the public works section was pushing for a wider roadway typical for residential streets. The town adopted 30 ft widths vs 24ft. That’s 6/24 (30%) additional impervious area and runoff that needs to treated before flowing into ALLEN BROOK. The town and selectboard have indicated a lack of interest to reach out and help communties like mine that have had expired stormwater permits for more then a decade. Its always been a wait and see, well I see where this headed now.
