    A group of residents peer through their window shades, afraid to go outside, as they watch scores of young people take over their neighborhood.
    They watch with trepidation as the swarm of strangers brazenly deals drugs in the homeowners’ back yards. And despite the “No Trespassing” signs posted on their property, residents watch helplessly as furniture is moved or stolen from their porches in broad daylight.

  • History restored

     American history was recently on display in the form of a green antique railroad car. 

    Her name is the Pullman Sunbeam, and she had been under wraps the last few years at the L&C Railway headquarters on South Main Street in Lancaster. 

    A Vermont museum asked Bob Willetts if he and others at the railway would take on the task of restoring the Sunbeam to its original form of more than 100 years ago. 

    Willetts agreed and now three years later, they talk proudly about a project that is just about complete.
