A LEGEND IN THE NEK

September 20, 2012

ST. JOHNSBURY, VT - The New York Times calls quintessential 60’s folk music icon Arlo Guthrie, “A superb folk singer” and “a polished raconteur.” Anyone who has ever attended one of Arlo’s concerts can testify to the latter, when he interrupts a song to riff on whatever happens to float into his mind. His digressions are ironic and funny, even goofy. But they always carry Arlo’s trademark passion to illuminate the pressing issues that face our world.

September 20, 2012

ORLEANS-After falling to the Lake Region Ranger girls in Bradford a week ago, Oxbow made the adjustments they needed as they recorded a 2-0 win at Ranger Field. The Olympians connected on a goal in each half and made it stand up with mid-field dominance and a physical attitude. They pinned down high scoring Tyrah Urie holding the lineman to three shots on goal. Coach Brad Urie stated, “We learned a valuble lesson today. I think we may have taken them a little bit for granted and we’re not good enough to just not play our hardest each time out. We will learn from this and be better for it.”
