Spring sports start at HVRHS

FALLS VILLAGE — The spring season is underway for the Housatonic Mountaineers.

The track and field team will open their season at home on April 26, after participating in a league invitational at Terryville on April 11. Each member of the small team (seven boys and thirteen girls) was able to compete in two events each.

Grinding it out on the Blackberry

NORTH CANAAN — The Blackberry River is well-stocked and fished hard.

It also has Beckley Furnace, which is Connecticut’s only industrial monument and as such has a couple of picnic tables.

On a pleasant day it’s a nice spot to grab a sandwich and relax.

It’s tackle fondling time!

The snow’s pretty much gone so it’s time for the annual look at tackle fondling.

Let us check out the waders. Do they leak? Why yes, they do. Not so much a large tear in the Space Age breathable fabric, with frigid water gushing in. No, we are talking pinprick leaks, which inevitably develop in even the priciest waders.

Signs will guide travelers on a new Route 7, for bicyclists

SALISBURY — Motorists and bicyclists in the Northwest Corner may soon see signs that indicate they are on U.S. Bicycle Route 7 (USBR7), a new cycling route that runs parallel to U.S. Route 7, from Norwalk, Conn., to the Canadian border with Vermont.

The route was designated in 2016, with support from Northwest Corner towns.
