NEWPORT TOWN â€“ Newport Center Fire Chief Kurk Flynn has high praise for the firefighters who prevented a possible explosion at a camp on the Clark Mountain Road yesterday. Firefighters responded to a fully engulfed structure at around 1:30 p.m. Flynn immediately requested mutual aid from Newport City and Troy. He also asked North Troy firefighters to be on standby.
NEWPORT CITY â€“ For some, thereâ€™s nothing better than homemade food. Friday, Allison Hooper, co-founder of Vermont Butter and Cheese Creamery of Websterville, VT, prepared dishes using recipes from her book "In a Cheese Makerâ€™s Kitchen" at Newport Natural Foods Marketing CafĂ©.
The dishes Hooper prepared include Mascarpone and Spanish dip and salad with a special goat cheese called bijou. She used cheeses made by her company. Community members also sampled the cheeses by themselves.
