🚨 Attention, hungry Dartmouth students 🚨: Your pizza delivery times might be getting a little shorter (MIGHT!).
The partners behind the West Lebanon Domino’s franchise have announced they plan to open a pizzeria in Hanover this spring.
Franchise co-owner Robert Keene said the duo’s latest location will open in the same building as the Irving gas station and Circle K, a site that also boasts a Dunkin’ Donuts and is neighbors with a CVS Pharmacy. Talk about one-stop shopping.
Keene said he anticipates the site will be up and running by mid-April.
Everything seems to be coming full circle for the pizza chain, since the owner of the now-shuttered Everything But Anchovies restaurant previously told student newspaper The Dartmouth that the West Lebanon Domino’s played a significant role in the decline of the eatery’s sales.

Places to swim have been a big topic in Hartford lately, with the announcement that Sherman Manning Pools (the public pool on the Hartford High School campus) will close this summer, and possibly be permanently decommissioned after that.
Now, reporter Matt Hongoltz-Hetling has dug up some documents related to Lake Pinneo.
The Quechee Lakes Landowners Association, which had the lake constructed in 1974, has prohibited public access since 2015. Yet according to the state records, the permit to build lake was based in part on the premise that all Hartford residents would be allowed to swim, fish and boat there for a modest fee.
The following PDF is the decision from the Vermont Water Resources Board in May 1974 in response to Quechee Lakes’ application to construct Lake Pinneo.
Quechee Lakes was required to get this approval from the Water Resources Board as part of its larger Act 250 application.
- Under item 7, C, the board took into consideration the effects on recreational values and found that “with the construction of a recreational lake and beach area, open to use by residents of the Town of Hartford for boating, swimming and fishing, recreational values will be enhanced.”
- Under item 7, K, the board considered that the public benefits of the lake would be “substantially increased recreational facilities for the residents of the Town of Hartford who will be permitted to use the lake upon payment of a maintenance charge.”
The following PDF is the Act 250 permit awarded to Quechee Lakes in June 1974.
The 11th condition includes an item that says “all residents of the Town of Hartford will be eligible to use the lake, probably with a minimum registration fee.”

Dartmouth College engineering Professor Eric Fossum and his colleagues at the Thayer School of Engineering are trying to equip cameras with the kind of vision that would make even Superman envious (or, more simply, make photos taken by your iPhone X look like cave paintings).
National Public Radio reported on Tuesday that Fossum has developed an ultra-sensitive chip called QIS, which stands for Quanta Image Sensor. Rather than pixels, the chip has “jots,” which can detect a single particle of light, aka a photon.
“What this chip can do because it’s sensitive to single photons is it can see in the dimmest possible light,” Fossum says.
Fossum envisions QIS will permit a new approach to creating digital images. Fast electronics allows each jot to be sampled 1,000 times per second. To build an image from the chip, the individual samples are added together and, using image processing software, a single image is produced.
The downside? Fossum’s technology isn’t likely to start popping up in cameras anytime soon — Fossum estimates it’ll be about 20 years before the chip sees widespread use.

The Hill on Tuesday reported that a dog who recently tried to launch a gubernatorial campaign was informed he is not eligible to run because he is a dog, which, rude.
According to the article, Hutchinson, Kan., resident Terran Woolley entered Angus, his 3-year-old wire terrier, in the governor’s race after “news reports surfaced that the state does not have requirements governing who can run for the office.”
The state, however, quickly stepped in and ended Angus’ political career before it even began.
“A dog will not be allowed to file and put its name on the ballot,” said Bryan Caskey, director of elections for the Kansas Secretary of State’s Office.
How dare you squash his hopes and dreams like that, Kansas?! He is clearly a very good boy.
Twitter users were understandably outraged by the news.
They can’t just throw him a bone?

In an annual tradition, biologists handed out red, heart-shaped pieces of felt nesting material to resident penguins — who love nesting material https://t.co/bEV5Sjw6e2

Tell me this isn’t the cutest thing you’ve ever seen!
Although the birds are often monogamous, they don’t usually share their red felt with each other. Instead, they typically go home, tear up the present, and wait for one of their peers to admire their handiwork.
As the resident crazy penguin lady, I audibly gasped when I came across this article. What do I have to do to get one of these?!
No, it is not a leap year — it’s simply more proof that everyone needs an editor.
