JAY PEAK — The North Country Union High School Falcons fell to the Colchester Lakers Saturday, 6-1. Though the game began as a back and forth battle between two evenly matched teams, the Falcons faced an unfortunate stretch in the second period.

“Before the game, we talked about getting the puck deep and making smart plays,” Lakers Coach Greg Murray said. “We wanted to get an extra deek in. Get the puck in the zone, get shots to the net. Score ugly.”

TROY — Amy Wan grew up in the restaurant business. Her parents, Emily and Kenny Wan, own and run Wok and Roll in Newport. So when Ms. Wan opened her own restaurant, 100 North in Troy on January 2, it would seem like a natural progression. But, Ms. Wan said, her venture began as more of a joke.

“My Dad bought the building at 100 Route 100 at auction,” Ms. Wan said. “He had this building, but he didn’t want to open another Chinese restaurant. We were talking, and I said I’ll take it! He asked if I was serious. That’s how it became mine.”

Although Lake Region competes with other school teams in tournaments, there will be an evaluation period of three years before the school board determines whether or not wrestling will become a school sanctioned sport.

WESTFIELD — There’s a place in Westfield where people gather every Saturday morning to see friends and family. It’s not a sporting event, or a church, or a bar that opens early. It’s a recycling center, and many of the citizens of Westfield and neighboring towns have been making this trip for seven years now. For the town of Westfield, recycling is a community affair.

Yves Daigle established the Westfield Recycling Center in 2007, and it has been growing ever since.

GLOVER — The fire station here was packed with children and their parents Saturday night waiting for Santa to arrive. Though Mr. Claus was late — apparently due to problems with his sled — there were still lots of things to do at the tenth annual Ride a Fire Truck with Santa, held by the Glover Volunteer Fire Department.

But nobody had to remind the children not to pout or cry. They were in the mood to make merry.

CRAFTSBURY — Roughly 40 people gathered on Craftsbury Common Sunday night to hold a candlelight vigil in response to police violence against black Americans.

Julia Lou Lepping, a student at Sterling College from Louisville, Kentucky, organized the vigil. As the 40 people, who all carried candles, filled the center of the snow-covered common, they formed a circle.

Though it was dark, and two degrees below zero, a full moon bathed the group in cool light.

BARTON — The Lake Region Union High School Lady Rangers won their season opener against the Oxbow Olympians, 49-35, Friday. The final score may be misleading, as this game was a hard-fought, neck-and-neck battle up until the final moments of the fourth quarter.

Led by senior Tyrah Urie’s 16 points, with contributions from Emily Lawson (11 points), and Megan Menard (8 points), the Rangers put the clamps on the Olympians early in the game and never let up.
