NEWPORT CITY â€“ By Jan. 1, 2014, all states will need a Health Exchange program up and running. Sen. Vince Illuzzi (R-Orleans/Essex) of Derby spoke to business leaders at the North Country Career Center yesterday about the exchange.
The law came about when the individual and small group insurance market in America essentially collapsed, Illuzzi said. â€śIf you did not have the opportunity to purchase insurance through a group, you were pretty much on your own."
ORLEANS - State Police reported that this vehicle, owned by Trevor Royer of Irasburg, was vandalized in the Park & Ride area on VT RT 5 in Orleans.

The incident occurred between 9 PM and 11:30 PM on Jan. 14. So far, this is the only vandalism incident in the area that has been reported to the Newport Daily Express.

For example, there is no technology teacher at the school.
