Three Burlington girls make pilgrimage to Woodstock
We are stardust: Cheryl Moynihan of Beaverbrook Road, Nancy Adams of Vincent Road and Linda Humphrey of Sylvester Road set off to Yasgur’s Farm in Bethel, NY by car, pulling a U-Haul trailer to sleep in. But due to the mass of humanity, they never made it closer than 10 miles from the actual concert. Oh well. They encountered plenty of people in need of shelter and tried to accommodate them with that U-Haul. By most accounts, Woodstock was a disastrous experience even 10 miles away, never mind at ground zero.
Family narrowly escapes Lexington Street house fire
The Menchin family at 99 Lexington Street — Joan and Robert, their children and a cat — “would have died in their beds,” said Fire Chief Herb Crawford, if a neighbor hadn’t heard the crackling sound of flames at 1:30 a.m. and ran into their house to alert them. A short circuit in the garage was to blame. “People should be more careful about using fuses over 15 amps and overloading,” Crawford warned. The alert hero was William Penrine of South Bedford Street.

Okay, whose idea was this double-bill?
