DERBY, VT - Flames shoot out of the engine of this 2000 Buick LeSabre parked at Lo's Tavern in Derby Thursday.

William Park of Delanson, New York, owns the vehicle.
BRIGHTON, VT - Mark Podgwaite, Director of Lyndon Rescue, proposed a new emergency medical services contract to the Brighton Selectboard on Wednesday, one that did not contain any increase based on a fee for using a repeater on a tower owned by Sen. Vince Illuzzi and his brother Joseph Illuzzi, who own Site Acquisitions, LLC, based in Montpelier.
The contract did nothing to calm the dispute between Lyndon Rescue and the Illuzzi brothers over who pays how much for using the tower, however.
