November 7, 2012

NEWPORT, VT - The Newport City Council is considering a request by the Newport City Renaissance Corporation (NCRC) for a $25,000 increase to its appropriation, already $25,000. NCRC would use the funds for its operations, marketing efforts and things like bike racks.
NCRC would like to bring in a second person to help CEO Trish Sears’ office efforts. Sears is the organization’s only paid employee, but NCRC does have some contract workers who do such things as work on the organization’s website. Board members volunteer their time at no cost. 

Willis Takes Fifth New England Elk’s Soccer Shoot

November 7, 2012

NEWPORT–Scoring goals in soccer is all about accuracy. In most games that I have watched, there are more balls sent over and wide of the net as opposed to actual shots on goal.
That is why the statisticians keep a "shots at goal" stat.
For Derby Elementary soccer stand-out Emily Willis, things are very different.
Accuracy for her is the normal, not the exception.
Willis is two-time Vermont State Elk’s Girl's Soccer Shoot champion, winning the 9-10 division last year and the 11-12 group this year.
