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.

Bitter cold but ‘it was worth it’

First day of fishing
cynthiah@lakevillejournal.com

LAKEVILLE — Normally, fishermen try to outdo each other with tales of their magnificent catch.
But on a chilly first day of fishing season (April 16), most of the fishermen and women tried to outdo each other with tales of how cold their hands got while trying their luck out on Lake Wononscopomuc.

Perhaps this is true to an even greater degree for the Special Olympians, a group of athletes who must overcome the challenges of their own disabilities as well as the challenges that mainstream athletes face.

Sharon bridge scores April 7

SHARON — There were four full tables for duplicate bridge at Good Neighbors on Low Road in Sharon on March 23. The crowd was reduced because the van at Noble Horizons dared not venture out, fearful of the threatened snowstorm, so we missed some very popular players who could not join us.
We used the Howell Movement instead of the more customary Mitchell Movement due to the small number of players. The average score was 42.

Spring: Now with smaller bugs

Tangled Lines
patricks@lakevillejournal.com

Trout season opened in New York state Friday, April 1 — and not a moment too soon.
This has been a rough winter. Lots of snow. Lots of gray. Lots of angst. As the winter deepened, the mood of the people disimproved. Then came the tsunami. And Libya. Everybody’s antsy about the economy. I’ve noticed a decided increase in per capita snarling.
So I will be very happy to put on waders and stand in a frigid river, waving a stick around to no apparent purpose. It beats the alternatives.
