My 3-year-old, Theo, is on a running kick. Whether it’s doing laps around our house after dinner or trying to beat the tractor back to the visitor’s center at Shelburne Farms, the kid has the need for speed.

Consequently, I’m always on the lookout for fun, outdoorsy places where my boy can roam free. On a recent weekday, we tried out the Allen Brook Nature Trail, located behind Williston Central School.

Since 2014, Seven Days has allowed readers to comment on all stories posted on our website. While we’ve appreciated the suggestions and insights, the time has come to shut them down — at least temporarily.

While we champion free speech, facts are a matter of life and death during the coronavirus pandemic, and right now Seven Days is prioritizing the production of responsible journalism over moderating online debates between readers.

To criticize, correct or praise our reporting, please send us a letter to the editor. Or send us a tip. We’ll check it out and report the results.

Online comments may return when we have better tech tools for managing them. Thanks for reading.
