The storm wreaked havoc on many of Vermont’s neighboring states, devastating homes, leaving neighborhoods underwater, and knocking out power to millions, but the storm skirted Vermont and the state recovered quickly, leaving Vermonters in a position to provide help to others in need.
A number of Vermonters, including state police, ambulance and utility workers, geared up and headed south to provide assistance.

DERBY – Mention the Northeast Kingdom and most people will immediately think of Vince Illuzzi.
Illuzzi served in the Vermont State Senate as a Republican for 32 years before deciding not to seek re-election and running for the state auditor’s office.
However, he lost the race by about a five-point margin to Democrat Doug Hoffer.
Next to Lt. Gov Phil Scott, Illuzzi received the second highest number of votes for a Republican running for statewide office.

LOWELL – A group of neighbors of the Lowell Wind Project have sent a letter last week to the Department of Public Service complaining of loud noise from the project.
Thirty-three residents signed the letter describing the sound coming from the turbines as “unbearable.” Last weekend, residents said, the noise sounded like a jetliner hovering overhead and never leaving, according to Lowell resident Don Nelson, who has been an outspoken opponent of the project. He was surprised by how loud the sound was.
