NEWPORT CITY - After years of the same ownership, Terry and Roxanna Prue are selling their business, Glass Medics, to Craig and Jeri Stevens. Terry Prue is Craig Stevens' uncle.
The Prues opened the business at their home in 1997 on West Main Street. They advertised in local newspapers and on the radio. The business quickly expanded and, within six months, moved to 1257 East Main Street. This is the location of the former Elmwood Dairy.

ORLEANSâ€“Tuesday's girls soccer match between Lake Region and Oxbow was a classic example of what can happen when you do not take advantage of your scoring opportunities.
Lake Region out-shot Oxbow 14-4, with several of the shots coming from prime scoring locations, but balls were either fired wide, or directly at Oxbow's netminder Meghan Williams, and the end result was a 2-1 win for the Olympians.
NCU 1, ST. J 0
ST. JOHNSBURYâ€“Myra Degre's goal with 2:43 left in the first was the difference as North Country slipped past St. Johnsbury Academy on Tuesday afternoon.
Degre's goal came on a nice through-ball from Lindsey Gaboriault that she converted on from 20 yards out.
The Falcons were without Devinnie Davis, who hopes to be back in action later this week, and Michaela Columbia, who suffered an injury over Maniatty weekend.
With the win North Country improves to 3-6, while St. J drops to 1-7-1.
The Falcons will host unbeaten CVU on Friday at 4:00.
