DERBY - Representatives from Newport City, Derby Town and local legislators met with Burlington developer Jeffrey Davis at the Cow Palace Monday evening to discuss bringing a Wal-Mart to the Newport Derby area.
The meeting was unofficial and Derby Select Board Chair Brian Smith, who somewhat moderated the informal gathering, asked if anyone objected having the press present and offered to hold the meeting at another time.
NEWPORT, VT - Conrad Masse, 76, of Craftsbury, pleaded innocent Tuesday to a charge of aggravated assault for shooting a friend of his during a bear hunting outing in Albany, VT, on Oct. 30 of last year. The charge states that the defendant "caused serious bodily injury to another recklessly under circumstances manifesting extreme indifference to the value of human life."
State Police reported that they were called to the scene of the shooting, which had occurred on the Urie Road in Albany, and arrived to find state fish and game wardens on the scene and conducting an investigation.
