BARTON â The Orleans County Fair ended with a battle to the death during the long-anticipated Demolition Derby Sunday. Fans cheered while mud, dust, smoke and the sound of crunching metal filled the air.
This yearâs Demo Derby fielded 96 cars: 59 four cylinders and 37 six and eight cylinders. The drivers of the four cylinders faced off against each other as did the drivers of the six and eight cylinders.
NEWPORT â The protesters arrested on Lowell Mountain for unlawful trespass were found guilty by a jury Wednesday evening after a day-long trial. The protesters were on Lowell Mountain where Green Mountain Power (GMP) is constructing a wind turbine farm.
The self-proclaimed âLowell Sixâ say they are disappointed by the verdict but will continue their advocacy for Vermont ridgelines.
