LAKEVILLE — The Northwest Connecticut Special Olympics swim team made its annual visit to The Hotchkiss School in Lakeville on Sunday, Nov. 5, for the 23rd swim-a-thon fundraiser there. 

Hotchkiss teacher and swim coach Keith Moon organized the event, as he has done for more than two decades. 

“We had a record-setting day with 235 swimmers, which handily broke last year’s previous record of 217,” Moon said.

Choices for the week

This week, it’s the Buffalo Bills versus the Jets.
Doug’s Pick
I stopped rooting for the Jets when Joe Namath retired. They always have given the appearance of an old, wannabe AFL expansion team, and their lack of  Super Bowl appearances testifies to their inability to “get it done.” And they won’t this week either.

NFL Predictions: Browns vs. Vikings

This week, it’s the Cleveland Browns versus the Minnesota Vikings — in England.
Doug’s Pick
While one has to applaud the NFL’s quest to bring Light to our forebears  by periodically sending two teams across the pond to show the Brits what real football is, offering up what might be a bloodbath between the 5-2 Minnesota Vikings and the miserable, winless Cleveland Browns doesn’t seem like the right endeavor.

NFL Predictions: Falcons vs. Patriots

This week, it’s the Atlanta Falcons at New England Patriots (Sunday, Oct. 22).
Patrick’s Pick
The New England Patriots often toy with their victims for three quarters before dispatching them in the game’s final minutes. This is why they don’t cover the point spread as often as you’d think (although there is no gambling on pro football).

Old meets new in Sharon and everyone wins

SHARON — The town of Sharon has refused to let go of summer and was awarded a gold medal Saturday, Sept. 23, for the ever-more-popular car show at Christ Church Episcopal. 
Twenty cars assembled on the grassy roadside across from the church. They ranged in age from a 1912 Stanley Steamer to a 1969 Porsche. 
Every entry was a significant and interesting part of automotive history. 
A standout was Sam Posey’s 1955 Mercedes Benz 300sl Gullwing brought by his son, John.
