COVENTRY - At 93, Fred Webster is working hard to make sure someone preserves his extensive collection of farm equipment for the next 500 years.
Webster is in the process of selling his real estate to family members. He and his wife, Vivian, will have lifetime rights to remain on the property. Webster wants the town to take over his collection, which he refers to as his legacy.

DERBY - At a joint legislator/educator summit held March 31 at Lake Region Union High School focused primarily on school related issues. School choice, funding for small schools, governance, and construction aid highlighted the discussion. At one point Representative Mark Higley raised a different subject, based on some discussions in Montpelier.
â€śThereâ€™s an amendment on the tax bill that will fund a study to see how much revenue the state can realize if marijuana is legalized,â€ť offered Higley. â€śThe study would also consider savings in law enforcement costs and on the court system.â€ť
