NEWPORT CITY â€” Only two reporters joined a mixture of school board members and administrators Monday night at the North Country Union High School and North Country Career Center annual informational meeting leading up to Town Meeting Day.
Please see Wednesday's Newport Daily for the full story.
BARREâ€“After trailing for the majority of the game, and looking like their season was going to come to an end, the Lake Region Lady Rangers reached deep within their souls, found that little something that makes top ranked teams special, and on the strength of Becky Doucet's lay-up with thirty seconds remaining, defeated the Lyndon Institute Vikings 45-43 to advance to Saturday afternoon's Division II girl's basketball championship game.
Some Vermont legislators question if closing the Derby and Rutland Public Answering Points (PSAPs) will really save the state $1.7 million as Gov. Peter Shumlin and Public Safety Commissioner Keith Flynn anticipate.
Please see The Newport Daily Express Tuesday for the complete story.
The Vermont Legislatureâ€™s House Education Committee is considering a bill that would eliminate small school funding on the basis that the grant is redundant. If the bill is enacted into law the Orleans Central Supervisory Union (OCSU) and North Country Supervisory Union (NCSU) would lose $480,459 and $684,087 respectively in FYâ€™16.
