BRISTOL — It’s not that often that a team outshot by 14-0 in a first half pulls out a victory. But that is what the resilient Vergennes Union High School boys’ soccer squad did at rival Mount Abraham on Friday, scoring twice in the second half on a penalty kick by junior Ben Kayhart and a direct kick by senior Max Ratti-Bicknell to stun the Eagles, 2-1.

VUHS Coach Kevin Hayes made lineup changes that helped, inserting freshman Josias Salamao at...

FRED KNIFFIN
MIDDLEBURY — It was in March that Dr. Fred Kniffin agreed to assume what was then the unenviable hot seat as Porter Medical Center’s interim CEO. Porter employees and the greater community were up in arms about recent layoffs, financial problems, physician defections and the controversial tenure of Lynn Boggs, who had just resigned. What a difference seven months can make. Kniffin, during his brief stint as Porter’s top executive, has helped stop the proverbial bleeding at Porter medical Center. The organization recently won state approval for a very conservative fiscal year 2017 budget....
