DERBY – Local businessman Grant Spates is an experienced member of many different boards and now he would like to be a member of the Derby Select Board. Long-time member Karen Jenne has opted to not seek re-election for a three-year seat, leaving an open place.
In a recent interview, Spates was critical of some of Jenne’s actions as a board member. Jenne was an opponent of the proposed industrial-sized wind turbines on two farms in town.

M&M’s, Paul Harvey and the Rest of the Super Bowl Spots

February 4, 2013

As I was watching all of the commercials during this year's Super Bowl, I was thinking there were not that many that completely wowed me. But there were a few that stood out this year, not necessarily because they were really funny, but because they were well put together and delivered a great message.

DERBY - Vicky Farrand-Lewis is seeking a three-year seat on the Derby Select Board, a position that has opened up after long-time member Karen Jenne decided to run for the town clerk and treasurer position instead.
Lewis began attending more town meetings and speaking up when the town was discussing the proposal to erect industrial sized turbines on Derby Line farms. Lewis supports a moratorium on future wind developments because she feels more research is needed on their effects on surrounding areas.
