No S.D. Ireland Legion baseball team this year

After several summers of fielding an entry in the Vermont American Legion baseball league, the S. D. Ireland team will bow out this season.
“Unfortunately there was a lack of interest and commitment (by potential players),” said long time coach Jim Neidlinger in an e-mail to the Observer.
In the past, the S.D. Ireland-sponsored team fielded players from Champlain Valley Union High, Rice Memorial High and Mount Mansfield Union, depending on their residence towns.
Players might catch on with either South Burlington or Essex legion teams.

    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.
