Mrs. Basil died on March 26, 2016.

He worked on the space programs from 1962 to 1973 in California. He also had his real estate broker’s license in California, Maryland, Virginia, and Washington, D.C., working to the end of his life.

He raised money for hearing impaired and deaf children, and also raised money for the building of Children’s Hospital next to St. Joseph’s Hospital in Orange, California. He always remembered and talked about the great town of Island Pond. He and Mrs. Basil went back over the years. He liked to hike, fish, and his favorite thing was to go and see Rose Steady as a kid. She would give him cookies and milk and also he would go to camp 21 with the Stafford brothers. He gave his time to people and he was proud of his home in Orange.

  17. Michael Rawlings Bone

    Michael Rawlings Bone, 63, of Fort Myers, Florida, died unexpectedly on April 22, 2017. Mr. Bone was born June 12, 1953, in Granite City, Illinois, the eldest child of Shirley (Kocis) and Malcolm Bone. He spent a good part of his childhood in the Northeast Kingdom, living in Island Pond, Derby, and Newport Center. He graduated from North Country Union High School in 1971. He was a devoted husband and father, and is survived by his wife, Michele (Bisogno) Bone; and their three children: Tara Randles, Jennifer Bone, and Justin Bone. Mr. Bone also leaves behind a daughter in-law, Heather Bone; and his three grandchildren, whom he deeply loved: Michael, Landon, and Ella.

Mr. Bone will be remembered for his hard work and dedication to the water and wastewater industries, as he worked alongside the Bone, Bisogno, and D’Alessandro families for over 40 years as a certified general contractor. He was a great leader, teacher, and mentor to the many coworkers who had the pleasure of working with him. In 1995, his love for basketball inspired one of his most rewarding achievements, founding the nonprofit organization High Hoops, which continues to develop future leaders on and off the court, one basket at a time. His vision was to provide his son Justin, and many other players he had coached, with a more competitive basketball experience. He was not only a coach, but also a friend and father figure to numerous basketball players throughout southwest Florida. He was loved and will forever be remembered for his sense of humor, generosity, and devotion to his family and friends. He will continue to live through each of them and will remain in the hearts of his loved ones forever. A memorial service will be held at Fred Hunter’s Funeral Home located at 6301 Taft Street, Hollywood, Florida, on Saturday, May 6, at 4 p.m. The family invites family and friends to visit from 3 to 4 p.m. In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting that donations be made to one of the following organizations: High Hoops, Inc.

  18. A Vermont man was killed in a snowmobile accident Thursday night in Groton. Vermont State Police say Gregory McLeod, 24, of Berlin, veered off a VAST trail and hit a tree at about 6 p.m. Police McLeod was likely inexperienced and that speed was a factor. They say alcohol may have played a role, as well.

  21. ISLAND POND — Crews are still searching for a 23-year-old man from Island Pond, who went missing after he fled during a traffic stop on New Year’s Eve, police say. On Tuesday, the Vermont Scuba team was called in to search a brook and swamp area surrounding Island Pond village. VAST trails in the area were also searched. At approximately 11:43 p.m. New Year’s Eve, a trooper made a motor vehicle stop in Island Pond after the vehicle failed to stop at a posted stop sign. Upon stopping, police say four people inside the vehicle immediately exited and began to run. The trooper was able to detain two passengers. The driver and third passenger continued to flee to the rear of a nearby residence, police say. The Brighton Police Chief says he learned through talking with the passengers that O’Gorman was the driver. His whereabouts were still unknown, and a K9 was brought to the scene to conduct a track. Based on this track police say they believe that O’Gorman crossed a small brook and continued on foot in and around Island Pond Village. Brighton Police, Essex County Sheriff’s deputies, and State troopers continued to try and locate O’Gorman, but were unsuccessful. On January 2, family members reported that O’Gorman was still missing. O’Gorman is 23-years-old, 5’10”, and approximately 200 pounds. He has brown hair and brown eyes. Anyone with information regarding O’Gorman’s whereabouts is asked to contact the Derby State Police barracks at 802-334-8881. A ground search is underway today. from Newport Dispatch
