Highway to Heaven - Well, Maybe Cross Street

by Bobby Blair
November 21, 2013

Many hard years of planning are starting to show that the proof is really in the pudding. Town residents will likely notice the new surface of the rail trail at Blair Square heading west, which last week received a layer of crushed asphalt/gravel.

On Wednesday and Thursday of this week a fresh layer of ground stone dust was appliied to the section of trail from Cross Street to Blair Square.

Herb Brockert (above) of the Rail Trail Committee who is overseeing and is actually working in construction of the trail makes sure that a small walkway up to the gazebo isn't overlooked with a layer of stone dust. A woman and her dog asked Brockert, "Can I walk on it," and the answer was typical of Brockert -- sure why not.

Even neighbor Timmy Sheehan who owns the six unit apartment building on the corner of Winthrop and Central Street was out doing his part on the trail by raking leaves. This newly improved section of the trail is now walkable according to Brockert, and if recent sightings of people on the trail are any indication the hard work of the Rail Trail Committee will not have been in vain.

Old Barns

by Bill Tobin

Old Barns Barns, barns, every where barns. But unfortunately they are in tough shape. A recent visit to the Great North Woods region in the Northeast Kingdom, very remote and rural, brought an awareness of the abandoned and vanishing barns. I noted at least a dozen of these structures within a radius of about fifteen miles, and I am sure there are many more. This is an update of an article published a few years ago. A recent trip to Vermont confirmed that the old barns are getting older.
