HVRHS graduate charts an unlikely path

SHARON — “When I was young, my parents and I would sit outside on our front porch whenever there was a thunderstorm,” said Allison Black, 18. “They didn’t want me to be afraid of thunder.”

Tricking better than trapping for town’s beavers

SHARON — Beavers are unquestionably cute and great for ecosystems, but they are also pesky. Their dams interfere with the town’s drainage culverts and flood roads in some instances. They contribute to erosion and washouts in other places, particularly on gravel roads.
