DERBY - Burglars seem to be getting more brazen by the moment, and burglaries more prolific, based on Vermont State Police crime reports.
Recently, a Holland man was attacked from behind with a blunt object by an accomplice when the victim tried to stop one of the burglars from ransacking the shed. And despite the arrest of two suspects in a number of area burglaries, the crimes continue.
BARTON â€“ Heavy rain on Sunday failed to dampen the fun of the last day of the Orleans County Fair.
In fact, the rain seemed to add to the excitement of the demolition derby as drivers smashed cars while trying to maneuver a muddy, slippery track.
The excitement was heightened by lightning, thunder and a hard rain, but overcast skies only eased weekendâ€™s grilling heat.
In between events, a few individuals rolled around in the mud for cash prizes while hungry fans chowed down on treats sold by area Boy Scouts or purchased from the assortment of vendors at the fair.
