BURKE - Jay Peak Resort owners Bill Stenger and Ariel Quiros now own Burke Mountain Resort. The resort was purchased from Lubert Adler, a real estate investment company, on May 22 for an undisclosed amount.
Jay Peak is in the midst of massive expansion with new hotels, townhouses, restaurants, an indoor water park, and much more.
Burke Resort has been trying to expand for the past several years but has historically struggled. However, in recent years, business at the resort has improved, said Burke Resort General Manager Tim McGuire in an Express interview Thursday.
NEWPORT CITY â€“ Sometimes an educator is more than an educator. He or she is a friend, and that was apparently the case for Shawn Sweet.
Sweet was a welding instructor at the North Country Career Center. He passed away at North Country Hospital, July 23, 2011.
Wednesday, members of what would have been his senior class unveiled a large monument to him in front of the career center.
Students used aluminum to spell out the letters NCCC for the North Country Career Center.Â
NEWPORT CITY â€“ There soon will be a new restaurant and pub downtown.

The restaurant and pub will have a seating capacity of 52 to 56. It will serve lunch and early bird dinners and have a pub atmosphere in the evenings.
