Speaking of the Trues Brook area: Check out this bald eagle that was rescued from the intersection of Trues Brook Road and Route 12A over the weekend. A youngster spotted the injured bird on Saturday and called 9-1-1, and Lebanon police kept it from going in the road until experts from the Quechee-based Vermont Institute of Natural Science (VINS) arrived to take it away.
