06:49AM / Wednesday, October 10, 2018
MANCHESTER, Vt. - In the annual one-day Sap Bucket Invitational at Ekwanok Country Club, the Williams College men's golf team finished third behind winner Trinity and second-place Middlebury.   Unlike most of the Ephs' events, the Sap Bucket features eight players from each team, with the lowest six scores from each team counting toward the team's total. The Ephs eight-man lineup at Ekwonak on Tuesday included a perfect symmetry of two players from each class: freshmen David Brewer and Jimmy DeLano, sophomores Beau David and William Conyers, juniors Sam Goldenring and Ben Beiers, and seniors Jake Foehl and Will Beischer.   Beau David showed he had no trouble dealing

Mount Greylock Athletic Director Lindsey von Holtz has been wanting for several years to bring the program to the school.  WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Mount Greylock senior Clare Sheedy had some butterflies going into Thursday's basketball practice.   And they had nothing to do with her jump shot.   "Before this practice — and [teammate Jayden Johnson] can attest to this, I was very nervous," Sheedy said after her first workout with the school's new Unified Basketball team.

By Bill Schmick,
10:37AM / Saturday, October 06, 2018
After this week's trade deal between the U.S., Mexico, and Canada, investors are waiting to see if China will now come to the table. What would it take for that to happen?   Mid-term elections could be the trigger. It wouldn't surprise me to see a deal before November — since the polls appear to favor the Democrats. Trump's tariff offensives, while supported by most of his base, are deeply disturbing to those who are feeling the brunt of foreign-trade retaliation.   Farmers, for example, and blue-collar workers in certain steel-related industries, are suffering.
