NEWPORT CITY â Veteranâs Day marks the signing of the Armistice and the end of World War I. The event took place Nov. 11, 1918. Yesterday, area residents remembered the day and the men and women who served in all wars with a program at the Newport Municipal Building.
Newport City Mayor Paul Monette expressed his gratitude to all veterans. He said he is blessed to be an American citizen. To be free in the United States is an honor and a privilege, Monette said.
âFreedom isnât free,â said Monette. âYou all answered the call to protect our freedom.â
DERBY - The Derby Planning Commission wants the town polled on how residents feel about wind projects. The commission has recommended the select board conduct a non-binding referendum during Town Meeting 2013.
Planners voted unanimously on the recommendation at their Oct. 22 meeting and then discussed the energy section of the town plan at their Nov. 5 meeting. About a dozen people attended the Nov. 5 meeting including Dave Hallquist, the CEO of Vermont Electric Cooperative (VEC).
