NEWPORT CITY â€“ Over a 100 families with young children had a chance to put the trials and tribulations of everyday life aside for a few hours Saturday and enjoy a real hometown Christmas, thanks primarily to Newport City native and Burlington real estate developer Tony Pomerleau. The dinner was for families who may not have had the Christmas theyâ€™d like to have.
NEWPORTâ€“ In 1995, the Orleans County Sheriff's Department closed the jail situated behind the county courthouse in Newport and moved next door to the Daley House during a transition period before moving to their current Derby Road location.
Built in 1903, the mail order jail (Literally â€“ the cells were built by Pauly Jail Company of St. Louis, Missouri, and shipped by train to Newport.) was created to eventually hold 45 prisoners. But the jail house and administrative offices have sat idle for 17 years and are starting to show signs of neglect.
