St. Mike’s professor celebrates celestial discovery

Standing alone in the control room of a telescope in Hawaii, St. Michael’s professor John O’Meara knew excitement was afoot.

It’s also not every day the head of science at NASA holds a news conference. Then again, it’s not every day astronomers find planets that could potentially harbor life. But as they say, the stars aligned last week when NASA announced researchers found seven roughly Earth-sized worlds orbiting Trappist-1, a tiny...

The Colchester boys basketball squad stopped a two-game skid in dramatic fashion after a Stephen Emmons’ bucket in double overtime catapulted the Lakers toward their seventh win of the season, downing North Country 57-55 on Monday.

Home bakery is couple’s labor of love

Twice a month, David Glass makes a four-hour trek to Bloomfield, Conn., where he meets his brother at a Japanese restaurant for lunch before heading out to the parking lot. To the average passerby, it might look like Glass is running a drug operation from the trunk of his silver Toyota Matrix. He often has a dozen people in line, rain or shine. But instead of illicit substances, Glass is just selling baked goods. One by one, he hands over his confections — a roster of various sweets led by a handful renowned cakes — to loyal customers, many...

Cobras hit trifecta over weekend

The Colchester Cobras hit the road last week, stopping in for four wrestling tournaments throughout the state and beyond. Jordan Lavoie, Cam Katon, Keegan Vance, Nick Forguites, Cahota Lafond and Sawyer Prouty fought their way to first and second place trophies during a pit stop in Saratoga Springs. Meanwhile, Hunter Gauthier represented the Cobras up north, taking first and second place in the Northeast Kingdom’s Python Tournament. Noah Quigley added to the success with a four-for-four pin day at Vergennes High School, dominating his weight bracket en route to a first-place finish. Sunday found much of the same during...
