BRATTLEBORO, Vt. — An 18-year-old Slovenian bested two dozen of the world’s best up-and-coming ski jumpers Sunday to win the Harris Hill Ski Jump’s annual namesake Fred Harris Memorial Tournament.
Blaz Pavlic broke the hill’s long-distance record with a 104-meter jump in front of a crowd of several thousand spectators, with Brian Wallace, 23, of St. Paul, Minn., placing second and Zak Silih, 21, of Slovenia third.
“The headwind helped me,” Pavlic said of his historic leap. “It lifted me up, and then I just said, ‘Go for it.’”
The nearly century-old event featured athletes from eight states, Austria and Slovenia shooting off New England’s only Olympic-size venue at speeds of 60 mph before soaring more than 300 feet in the air.
Broad Brook Grange’s annual Sugar on Snow Supper will be held Saturday, March 4, at the Grange hall in Guilford Center. The meal features ham, baked beans, deviled eggs, cole slaw, potato salad, rolls, pickles, homemade donuts, and Guilford maple sugar on Guilford snow.

Every family has secrets. Mine had more than its share. If there were a way that my mother could have avoided telling me about Aunt Rose, I am sure that I would never had found out about her.
Rose had been in Rockland State Hospital since the 1930s when her brief marriage failed, and she lost custody of her only child. Now, in 1956, her three sisters (Aunt Fanny, Aunt Yetta, and my mother) were planning a visit. We went in two cars: Uncle Irving’s DeSoto Deluxe, and Uncle Mac’s Oldsmobile Rocket 88.

I am sharing this sad story so that citizens who find a dog locked in a car can share that dogs die in cars even on not so hot days. Tragically, this dog died on a 70 degree F day after being left unattended for three hours. This occured in our neighborhood here in Palm Springs.
Now, if you find a dog locked in a car, and a police officer or store owner dismisses your concern with "it's not that hot out" you can site this case as evidence to support your concern. Of course science has proven this for years, but we continue to frame the problem as "dogs die in hot cars". Not always.
