BARTON â€“ An unnamed river, which is the central outlet to a 24-square-mile watershed highlighted by Crystal Lake and May Pond, was for over 140 years an energy source that resulted in the founding of â€śBarton Mills,â€ť now the Town of Barton. In a span of less than a quarter mile, the river serves as the outlet to Crystal Lake and cascades down a 90-foot vertical drop before emptying into the Barton River.

Lake Region 2, BFA Fairfax 1
FAIRFAXâ€“After a first half that featured no goals whatsoever, the Lady Rangers put up two in the second to the Bullets' one, and picked up their sixth win of the season.
"We played very well, and a win on the road at BFA Fairfax is a big thing," said LRU coach Brad Urie.
Thirteen minutes into the second, BFA won the race to the scoreboard when Celena Marrier scored on a loose ball in front of LRU keeper Jordyn Cowles.
Spaulding 2, No. Country 0
The next day brought more fantastic weather and more Spaulding athletic teams to the fields at North Country Union.
On the field hockey green, the Falcons got off to a good start, playing with energy as they looked to bounce back from their first loss of the season, a tough 3-0 defeat at the hands of Harwood on Thursday afternoon.
But Spaulding's Kassandra Perantoni and Nichole Weeks scored less than a minute apart at the mid-point of the first half, and that would be all she wrote.
