ORLEANS â€“ Anyone in the area of Orleans Village may smell fresh baked pizza and other tasty foods and for good reason.
Erik Lawson, owner of the Village Pizza and Sub Station, recently moved his business from the Derby Road to Orleans, almost directly across from the Frontier Animal Society on Route 5. The new place is located on the VAST trail.
Lawson sold the Derby building to Jim Mulkin who, according to Lawson, is going to tear down the existing building and construct a new one that will have a home for Village Pizza and some retail space.Â
NEWPORT, VT - Democrats decided on their Essex-Orleans senatorial candidates in the two-seat district.
Incumbent Robert Starr of North Troy received 978 votes, John Rodgers of Glover received 888 votes and Jim Guyette received 521 votes in Tuesday's primary. Starr and Rodgers will face off against Republicans Bob Lewis of Derby and Jay Dudley of Barton in the November general election.
â€śWith the light voter turnout, I was happy with the way it went,â€ť said Starr.Â Only 7 percent of Derby voters showed up at the polls.
