North Country Cruises Past U-32 With 5-1 Victory

February 4, 2012

JAY–With their overtime win against MMU in the rearview mirror, the North Country girls hockey team cruised to the 5-1 win over U-32 Friday night at the Ice Haus Arena.
Said coach Claude Paul, "We talked before the game about that we have had a habit lately of playing two periods, or a period and a half, but never three, and that is what I wanted them to play tonight.
"Granted in the first we had our moments, but I think that is more a feeling out of your opponent at that time of the game."

Falcon Comeback Falls Short as Lakers Win 8-4

February 4, 2012

JAY–Tired legs.
That is what one member of the North Country boys hockey team's coaching staff said in between the first and the second period; tired legs.
And who could blame him. Having played in Barre on Wednesday night against Spaulding in a game that started at 8:00, and getting home well past midnight, you can understand how the Falcons might not be as rested as they would have liked to have been when they fell to Colchester 8-4 in the second game of the double-header on Friday.

"Well it was a win," said Tinker dryly after the game, “Right now I don't have all the answers, but we've got to figure something out."

Police Victimized by Practical Prison Joker

February 2, 2012

WATERBURY, VT - Vermont State Police like a joke as much as the next guy, but prisoners at the Vermont Correctional Industries Print Shop may have gone too far.
On Feb. 1, a member of the state police noticed something odd about the new decals on the doors of the police cruisers. The emblem, which features the seal of the State of Vermont, includes a brown and white (actually tan) cow in the right hand bottom corner. The cow is covered with spots of varying sizes and shapes, including a rather large one on the cow's shoulder blade - in the shape of a pig.
