BOSTON â€“ Bombs blasted Boston during its annual Patriot's Day marathon yesterday. At least four bombs either exploded or were detonated by police, including one in the John F. Kennedy Library and one in a sports shop. Two of the blasts were about 100 yards apart near the race finish line. The blasts shattered windows, knocked people to their feet, and sent heavy smoke in the air and over the streets.
By 6 p.m., at least 50 people were reported injured, many seriously, and at least two people were reported killed.
NEWPORT CITY â€“ There are no plans to increase the number of hours state police patrol despite extensive burglaries and thefts in the Northeast Kingdom. As it is now, officers go off duty at 2 a.m.
Budgets are tight, said Sen. John Rodgers, one of three featured speakers at Monday's Legislative Breakfast.
NEWPORTâ€“The North Country girls tennis team underwent a lot of changes in this past off-season, and it started at the top of the program with the retirement of long-time head Marie George.
George, who had been with the program since its inception thirty years ago, decided to step down so she could spend more time in Florida before heading north for the summer.
So, with no George in the mix, the search was on for a new coach.
The school found that coach from within, as one of the North Country's guidance counselors, Jody Driscoll, has taken the reigns, and is ready for his new challenge.
Nadeauâ€“â€“ Myrna R., 74, of Coventry, VT passed away on April 11, 2013 in Newport, VT, surrounded by her loving family.
