Winooski organizations team up to serve neighbors in need

BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) – Two Winooski organizations are teaming up to make sure underserved communities have what they need during the pandemic.

Winooski Mutual Aid and Iceberg Consulting have started “P.U.M.A.” It stands for “Pop-up Mutual Aid.”

Once a week, volunteers will pack up a carload of winter clothes, masks, hygiene products and food, and drop them off in different neighborhoods.

The organizers say the goal is to meet people where they are and eliminate barriers that may prevent people from getting to other donation drives in the area.

Mellisa Cain says some of those barriers include child care, language and transportation.

“A lot of events– you have to go at a certain time. And so you have to meet the other organization’s time schedule, whereas people work, people have child care and they’d have to arrange child care. A lot of folks don’t have the transportation. You have to

Weeks after winter sports cancellations, school systems move forward with fall athletic schedule

A variety of factors have caused local schools to maintain their adjusted fall sports schedule, despite previous cancellations and rising COVID numbers.

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. — “With fall sports we were always worried about the humidity in the beginning, and then by the time the playoff rolled around you had to have your beanies and hats and everything on.”

Chesapeake Supervisor of Student Activities Kevin Cole may want to break out the winter clothes a little earlier in the fall sports schedule this year with football and competitive cheer starting conditioning January 28th. 

Just two weeks after voting to cancel winter sports, the Chesapeake School Board voted to go ahead with the adjusted Fall sports season, Cole says the timeline made all the difference

“We looked at all sports across the board and we’ve got a longer time frame now, pauses made it impractical to do winter season in two

Snowmobiler discovers northern Michigan family of 3, including baby boy, dead after ‘unfortunate tragedy’

The bodies of a family of three were discovered in northern Michigan outside a pickup truck that appeared to have gotten stuck in what sheriff’s office officials are calling an “unfortunate tragedy.”

The Ogemaw County Sheriff’s office said a snowmobiler discovered the bodies of Amanda Pomeroy, Douglas Dougherty and their baby son, Jacob, shortly before 4:30 a.m. Saturday along Stoney Ridge Road in a remote area of Rose Township. 

On Tuesday, Undersheriff Paul Frechette told Fox News the autopsy examination had been completed and investigators had learned their deaths were not suspicious and no criminality was believed to have been involved.

Tens of Thousands Flood Moscow Streets to Protest Alexei Navalny’s Arrest

MOSCOW— As groups of youth dressed in hip winter clothes arrived in the Chistye Prudy area and began the walk along the pedestrian boulevard toward the central avenue of Tverskaya, it looked by 2 PM as if all pedestrians of the Russian capital were walking in the same direction—to Pushkin Square to join the protest against Alexei Navalny’s arrest.

It turned out to be by far the biggest rally Moscow had seen since the summer of 2019. At least 30,000 people joined the anti-Putin protest in Russia’s capital, as dozens of thousands protested across the country, answering Navalny’s call.

“What are these thieves scared of most of all? Of people coming to the streets,” Navalny said earlier this week, before his improvised court hearing at a police station following his return to Russia after an assassination attempt.

His supporters in major Russian cities responded with demonstrations against corruption

How to layer clothes:

WARNING: The following contains major spoilers for Legacies Season 3, Episode 1, “We’re Not Worthy,” which aired Thursday on The CW.
