Time to Check Your Chi
Derby- The NEK Council on Aging is preparing a free, fitness work-out authorized by the Arthritis Foundation and designed to help older Vermonters learn how to keep their joints mobile, move their weight, and breathe better.
Tai Chi for Arthritis is scheduled to start Friday, October 16, at The Church of God, 295 Crawford Rd. It will run from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. for 10 weeks.
A pony pulling contest at the Roaring Brook Park in Barton this past weekend drew an appreciative audience from many different states.
Here is what has had me thinking this past week.
1. Boy it is a tough time to be a Falcon football fan, as they lost their 7th game of the year on Friday.
I have been to the practices, I have seen the games, and injuries aside, coach Wade has been doing all he can for this team.
It really is now up to the team to take control and try to get a few positives in the final two games of the year.
2. Hockey Season is HERE!
I am beyond happy, plus the Canadiens beat both of their rivals in their first two games.
NEWPORTâ€“The North Country Falcons lost to MMU by the score of 14-0. For the full story, see the Express on 10-12-15.
