ORLEANS â€“ For 80 years, Ethan Allen manufacturing has been producing high quality home furnishings. Yesterday company officials kicked off their celebration on the historic milestone by touring the plants and meeting with employees in Beecher Falls and Orleans. Today CEO Farooq Kathwari and Regional Operations Manager Mike Worth will ring the bell at the New York Stock Exchange.
During a private luncheon, Kathwari said Ethan Allen survived the Great Depression and the Great Recession. â€śThose are two very important time periods,â€ť said Kathwari.
COVENTRY â€“ Tyler Collins, 16, of Newport Center, died in a car crash Monday on Alderbrook Road in Coventry.
Collins, a junior at North Country Union High School, was reported driving a Hyundai Tiburon over the speed limit and headed west when he passed an Orleans County Deputy headed east. The deputy turned his cruiser around and activated lights and siren to stop the vehicle.
VERMONT â€“ The state bear population has grown so large that officials are taking action to bring the number down. Because there are so many bears now, estimated at more than 6,000 statewide, the number of nuisance complaints from residents is at a record high.
NEWPORTâ€“The UCA Crusaders ran up against a speedy Trinity Baptist Kings team on Monday afternoon, losing the contest 3-0.
"We've got some adjusting to do before we see them next week," UCA coach Alyssa DeLaBruere after the game. "Speed is not our strength. We've got size but not speed, so we have got to figure out a way to shut down three or four of their players that just can go."
The Kings used their quick feet to get on the board early as Christopher Zamarippa opened the scoring off of a corner kick just five minutes into the contest.
