Valley News – Out & About: Precision Museum to unveil model waterwheel

WINDSOR — One of the defining features of the building that is now the modern-day American Precision Museum in downtown Windsor was a giant waterwheel.

In the mid-1800s, the manufacturing that took place in the Robbins & Lawrence Armory was powered by water, including the 18-foot contraption.

“The waterwheel itself is lost to time, but now we actually have an electric-powered model,” said Alice Cable, associate executive director at the American Precision Museum. A new exhibit titled “Full Circle” will be unveiled at the museum at 11 a.m. on Saturday, both in person and on Facebook Live. More information about the museum’s COVID-19 policies and about the event can be found at or by calling 802-674-5781.

Newport News considering virtual, hybrid options for school; final decision Aug. 4

Students could return to school either virtually or two days a week under a proposal presented Monday evening to the Newport News School Board.

The board will decide Aug. 4.

They are not considering bringing students back full-time.

“We were well aware that we would not be able to accommodate 100% of our students reporting to our school buildings every day and continue to meet the safety guidelines necessary to keep staff and students,” Superintendent George Parker said.

Parker presented three options to the school board in the virtual meeting in a presentation that was still being tinkered with until shortly before the meeting started. The district is launching a student, family and staff survey Tuesday to collect more feedback.
