NEWPORT CITY – Mayor Paul Monette is seeking a seat at the House of Representatives in Montpelier. Monette is running as an Independent.

Lemarche Pitches Eight Inning Gem in Falcons’ 6-4 Loss to CVU

May 15, 2012

NEWPORT–When a team is mired in a one win season they need someone or something to rally around.
For the North Country baseball team, that someone is pitcher Joel Lemarche.
Nicknamed "Sheldon" for his resemblance to the character played by Emmy award winning actor Jim Parsons on CBS' The Big Bang Theory, Lemarche came out and threw a masterful eight inning game for a shorthanded Falcon team on Monday against Champlain Valley.
Even though North Country lost the game 6-4 Lemarche's performance was topic of conversation after the game.
"It was a heck of a job," mused Tyler Sanville.
