BARTON CRASH

November 19, 2012

BARTON — An East Haven man ended up at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center Monday following a crash on US RT 5 around 8:20 a.m.
Orleans County Deputy Sheriff Jonathan McFarlane reported that Timothy Gaskill, 21, was traveling north when his 1999 Chevrolet Prizm slid out of its travel lane and into the front of a 1995 Mack truck carrying logs.
Roy Fox, 29, of Lyndonville, was operating the truck and was not injured. He was unable to stop the truck, McFarlane said.
Fire department personnel and emergency medical service technicians extracted Gaskill.

DAILEY LIBRARY BURGLARIZED

November 19, 2012

DERBY - Someone broke into the Dailey Memorial Library in Derby over the weekend. State Police are investigating and urge anyone with information to contact them.
When director Barbara Whitehall arrived at the library Sunday morning for a quick stop, it turned into anything but. She noticed right away that a window was shattered and the front door was unlocked. Apparently the perpetrator broke the window to reach around and unlock the door. But the burglar found more locked doors once inside.

FEELING THE PINCH

November 19, 2012

NEWPORT, VT - When the 2008 Farm Bill expired on Sept. 30, farmers across the country were put into a financial limbo until Congress takes up the bill during the lame duck session. Renewing the bill for another five years will provide stability for growers and milkers as it allows them to plan for the future, the Farm Bureau says. For local dairy farmers, the problem isn't milk subsidies, but the cost of feed.

Column: Go Home Gary

November 19, 2012

I have just about had it with Gary Bettman and the NHL, specifically Gary Bettman.
As hockey fans are now sitting through the third work stoppage under his regime, it is time to take a long, hard look at what Bettman has done for the NHL and the fans that are finding it increasingly hard to stay interested.
First; Let us look at a few of the good things that Gary has done for the league and more specifically for me, the fan.
1. The Winter Classic.
Old School hockey played on an outdoor rink.
Or as old school as the rules would allow, anyway.

THE LAST TWINKIE

November 18, 2012

ST. JOHNSBURY – Friday, Hostess, the maker of ionic foods like Twinkies and Wonder Bread, announced that after 82 years it was closing its plants for good.
The company, headquartered in Irving, Texas, made the move after striking workers ignored warnings to return to work by 5 p.m. Thursday – or else.
“Hostess Brands is unprofitable under its current cost structure, most of which is determined by union wages and pension costs,” states the now defunct company’s website.

Honor and Privilege

November 18, 2012

BARTON – Four war veterans walked into St. Paul’s School to thank teacher Jennifer Wilson and her fifth and sixth grade class for writing them cards in honor of Veterans Day. 
Wilson started the project the Tuesday before Veterans Day. She obtained the names of local veterans from her father, John Wilson, a Vietnam veteran.
Wilson wanted each student to write one card, but the class got so enthused, the students ended up mailing 25 cards. Each veteran received at least two cards and some received three and four. Some of the veterans wrote back to the students.

Derby JP Recount Tuesday

November 18, 2012

DERBY – The race for a position as Justice of the Peace is typically a quiet one, and it is not uncommon for just enough people – or even not enough people – to run to fill all the available openings.
In Derby there are 12 justices of the peace, and this year 15 people sought the positions.
Derby resident Maureen Fountain decided to seek the position for the first time and lost by three votes. Fountain earned 895 votes. Karen Jenne was the last place winner with 898 votes.
