Rowing her way to the Olympics

Copenhaver

Two pivotal things must happen over the next year for elite rower Michaela Copenhaver of New Milford to realize her dream of competing in the Olympics in lightweight double sculls.

A 1700s Colonial Home Inspires its Owner

My daughter came home disappointed from a fifth-grade visit to Keeler Tavern Museum, constructed in 1713 and famed for the British cannonball still embedded in its flank. “It’s just like our house,” she complained.
