BARTON - Smashing and crashing his Cadillac Eldorado to his second consecutive championship in the demolition derby at this year’s Orleans County Fair, one thing his fellow derby drivers have learned about Tim Hunt of Derby Line throughout the years is never to count him out, even when his car is smashed almost beyond recognition.

Tide Rolls Falcons 4-2 in Night Time Soccer Action

September 13, 2012

NEWPORT–Despite getting twelve shots on net, and a flurry of activity late, North Country's boys soccer team could not quite complete the comeback, falling to the Spaulding Crimson Tide 4-2 on Wednesday evening.
For the Falcons the problem seems to be that of consistency.
They look great for small stretches of time, ten minutes here, five minutes there, but they have been unable to put together the continuous amount of pressure needed to win games in the Metro division.
