DERBY - Some members of the local community are outraged by the news that an adult novelty store is planning on setting up shop in Derby next door to Roasters Deli and CafĂ©.

RICHFORDâ€“UCA hit the road to take on Richford on Monday, and despite the 1-0 loss, Coach DeLaBruere was thrilled with her teamsâ€™ efforts.
â€śWe played an unbelievable game! 7 minutes into the 1st half, we lost center striker Ji Kim for the remainder of the game when he collided with 2 Richford players and hyperextended his knee. Loosing Ji on the field was a big loss for us, but my boys were up for the challenge!â€ť
On Friday, September 30th, the NCUHS Girls Varsity Soccer team ran a training session for the Junior High program in Derby. The session started with an overview of the high school program, expectations for the pre-season, and the fall try-out procedure explained by Varsity coaches Peter Alexander and Joe Batista. Both coaches Steve Farrow (7th grade) and Amanda Blaisdell (8thgrade) had their players participate in the dynamic stretch routine that mimics the soccer warm-up at UVM.
Our dad was a kind and gentle man. His height could have intimidated, but it never did.Each time that we were together, we would begin to plan when and where the next time would be. His dreams were magical, and he made them real. He lives in us, in our children and in those he loved and who loved him. Nothing on this earth in the 64 years that he shared with us can ever take that from our hearts.
ORLEANSâ€“"My hats of to Enosburg, and that's all I'm going to say."
Those are the only words spoken to me by Coach Tom Evans after Lake Region's 2-0 loss to Enosburg on Monday night.
Judging by his words and tone, coach, you can imagine how Evans felt about his team's performance on the pitch.
Things started out on the wrong foot for LR personnel wise as sophomore goaltender Alex Beauregard started the game on the bench due to what sources cited as a disciplinary matter.
