COLEBROOK — The fourth annual Cardboard Boat Regatta was held as part of the Colebrook Fair on Saturday, Sept. 3. Using only cardboard and duct tape, both of which were supplied by the YMCA’s Camp Jewell, participants had to build their own vessels to bring to the competition at the Colebrook Pond. 

Boats needed to be able to be paddled out to a certain point in the pond, maneuver around a buoy and paddle back to the shore with the fastest time in each category taking home the prize. Twenty-one boats were entered this year in seven categories based on ages and...

Yellowjackets football season ends with victory

WINSTED —  On Thursday, Nov. 24, the Gilbert-Northwestern football team finished their season with a 29-6 victory over Waterbury Career, closing out a year that saw the Yellowjackets make huge strides as a program while falling just short of a postseason berth.
With a final record of 8-2, the Yellowjackets improved by three wins over last year’s 5-5 campaign, and found a revelation in junior tailback Billy Komons, as they steamrolled through most of the 2016 season, winning by an average of 31 points.

Last week’s predictions were mostly correct, but what about this week?

Last week: 10-3; for the season, 85-57-2. Pick of the week, 1-0; 8-1 for the season. Just Sports:  (Mike Kurtz): 10-3; for the season, 76-66-2. POW: 1-0; for the season 7-2.
 
First, let me inform you all that this past week’s results do not include the winner of the Houston vs. Oakland game on Monday night. It won’t, however, change much, because both Mike and I picked the same team, the Raiders, to win the game. The holiday weekend moves up my deadline to Monday morning, so we’ll get things squared away next week.

Bowling rolls on at Laurel Lanes

WINSTED — It might not be as competitive as the Professional Bowlers Association, but down at Laurel Lanes on 266 Main Street, duckpin bowling enthusiasts will find two very important similarities to what the professionals get to do in the big leagues.
First, you can see how your skills stack up against others’, vying for championships and prizes. Second, you get to knock over pins with a ball. Albeit a smaller ball than a full-sized bowling ball.
