Weathersfield News September 28, 2016
Brrrrr, the chilly mornings are back!
Another Vermont 50 Mountain Bike Ride or Ultra-run is in the books. I've volunteered at all 24! It's always great seeing the bikers and runners but what I really like is the Kids Free Fun Ride or Run on Saturday. So cute.
Last week I was living and breathing the race but I was able to squeeze in one concert, Buddy Guy at the Lebanon Opera House on Sunday night.
The real race begins Sunday morning with waves starting at 6 a.m. at Ascutney Mountain and finishing before 6:30 p.m. on Ascutney Trails.
It was a chilly morning, so the race had the "bumdrums" fired up. The 50 km run starts at 8 a.m. so some athletes get a little more sleep.

Sunday night, I got to photograph Buddy Guy at the Lebanon Opera House. This was my third time seeing him and he still amazes me. He truly is a legend.
Matt Andersen (images: https://photosbynanci.smugmug.com/Matt-Andersen/Lebanon-Opera-House-2016/ ) opened the show and was quite a talent. More images are at: https://photosbynanci.smugmug.com/Buddy-Guy/Lebanon-Opera-House-2016/
Next up at the Opera House: SOLD-OUT Lake Street Dive, Dark Star Orchestra, a benefit for Rusty Berrings Skate Park, Esperanza Spalding, Martin Sexton, and a whole bunch of shows for children.
A few weeks ago I covered the Upper Valley Trail Alliance Tour de Taste for the Valley News Enterprise and the photos were published this Tuesday.

Now the News You Can Use
Weathersfield Select Board News: The Select Board met on Sept. 19. Discussion mostly centered around
Town Manager Ed Morris presented some of the history of the road. Currently it's
a Class 3 town highway to the old quarry, where it becomes Class 4 to the town
line. He reviewed the process for reclassifying a town highway. Emergency
Management Director, Dave Fuller, sent a letter to the board with objections
because it is an alternate access route to the town of Baltimore. A traffic counter will be on the
road for 4-5 weeks, collecting data. Neighbors are concerned about increased
traffic volume and speeding along the road, one neighbor told the board a
petition is in the works. Mr. Morris will speak to Chief Daniels about
patrolling the road for speeding cars and contact the Town of Baltimore. More information about the Select Board and
the town, contact Ed Morris, Town Manager at 802-674-2626 or firstname.lastname@example.org
