Thirteen-year old gymnast and Williston resident Emma Lieberman earned first place for the second consecutive year as beam champion at the USA Gymnastics Regional Xcel Championships, held in Shrewsbury, Mass. May 31 – June 1.
She also placed fourth on the vault and was second place all-around for having the second-highest combined score in her division.
Earlier this season, Lieberman was crowned First Place All-Around Xcel Champion for the second consecutive year at the Vermont State Finals in Bellows Falls. At that meet, she also took the top spots in the floor and vault events, and finished second on beam and bars.

    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.
