DERBY, VT - Not that long ago, a woman in law enforcement was an oddity unless she was working behind a desk. The television show "Cagney and Lacey" (1981-1988) attempted to break the stereotype, but the number of women police officers in the field didn't start growing until years later. Today, women make up about 20% of the approximately 40 graduates of a Vermont Police Academy class.
STANSTEAD, QUE./DERBY LINE, VT - Many Canadian citizens are very concerned over the proposal to build two industrial size wind turbines just east of Derby Line near the U.S.-Canadian border.
Stanstead, a Quebec town immediately north of the border, was not officially notified about the Derby Line Wind project, even though they are abutters. When the Vermont Public Service Board (PSB) discovered this, the developer was directed to officially notify Stanstead. Stanstead received notification after the PSB public hearing.
DERBY â€“ Thereâ€™s no place like the Home, Garden and Recreation Show.
The show takes place Friday, 4 p.m. to 8 p.m., and Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
There will be entertainment, exhibits, seminars and about 50 vendors, some of which will come from outside Orleans County.
â€śI think they see there is business here; theyâ€™re going to try to get some of it,â€ť said show organizer Chris Johansen.
One of the highlights of the show is a chance to win a new 2012 Chrysler 200 Limited from Northpoint Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram. Other local dealers will also have displays.
