3} EXPLOSION_OC__MAP


Firefighters are on the scene of a house explosion in Guilford, VT. One person is still trapped alive in the rubble. Officials say it happened on Great Blue Heron Drive. A neighbor reported hearing the explosion around 2:30 this morning -- but didn't think much of it until they woke up and saw the house was leveled. Crews from Guilford, Brattleboro, Putney and Keene, NH are on scene. We'll have more details as they come in.

It was a young hobby -- to help his other hobby -- that became a business. In high school, Richard Lowrey of Charlotte began making his own custom vinyl decals for his race car. Part of an effort to cut finances, he learned how to design the decals on a computer software and bought a special cutting machine. After hours and hours of trial and error -- and dozens of projects -- he discovered it might be able to turn it into a side business.

5} AM_WEATHER


Mostly sunny & hot today, but a chance for an evening shower, thunderstorm right near the Canadian border as that weak cold front comes close. Things settle down tonight. Then on Thursday, as the front slowly sags from north to south, there will be scattered showers & thunderstorms. The front will still be near the MA border on Friday, so still the chance for showers, t-storms there, otherwise some sunshine to the north. The frontal system should stay to our south during the weekend, so it is looking like a fine, summer weekend, with lots of sunshine and comfortable humidity, and seasonably cool at night. This will continue into the start of next week, along with a slow warm-up.

Richard Lowrey races cars for a hobby, alongside his dad. A few years ago -- he decided to start designing his own car graphics. ((TILE 9160 18:52:15--19:01:11 "I can do this by myself. I can make it look good. I don't need to contract a third party in order to bring someone in and do this for me.")) It all started when the Charlotte teen was in high school. He said it made a lot more financial sense to design vinyl decals at home. ((TILE 9165 30:30:18--30:35:24 "When something gets ripped up and when something gets torn off I can just go make a new one.")) But what started out as a hobby to help his other hobby -- has turned into a small side business. And he's not just doing cars. ((TILE 9160 22:17:00--22:22:17 "I've actually done boats, I've done some commercial vehicles, our neighbor up there has a farm - I've done a lot of his farm equipment.")) Lowrey uses a computer program called FlexiSign to design his logos. He taught himself how to use it -- and connect to a specialized cutting machine that traces out images. ((TILE 9179 34:51:06--34:59:04 NATS: "The hardest part about this is actually seeing the graphic here.")) He then has to cut it all out...in a process known as "weeding." ((TILE 9161 26:44:25--26:47:25 "NATS: Each component is a different layer to this graphic.")) Trying to figure out the nuances in the material -- he says -- was the hardest part. ((TILE 9160 20:25:00--20:33:07 "There's just different techniques that you really can't look up on the internet. You really can't Google. You just have to go out there and really experience it.")) Lowrey is a self-described perfectionist. He wants to be respected for his name and work. ((TILE 9191 41:38:20--41:41:08 "It's the simplest things that always go wrong.")) Now, he says he hopes to grow his at-home business. He's about to go study more about entrepreneurship in college.

Lowrey is about to be a freshman at Quinnipiac University. He says he hopes to come back -- and keep his decal business running. He told us he's not only the youngest guy in his race league -- but he also thinks he's the youngest person in the state running a business like this.

He's a teen who developed a profitable hobby -- while embracing his passion .. Tyler joins us with the budding entrepreneur's story ... Gina -- vinyl decals are essential on race cars. They're used for identification numbers, logos for sponsors and even the driver's name. But when costs started to rise... the young driver we met decided to make them himself. And on top of all this -- he just graduated from high school.

32} RACECARAM_PKG


Richard Lowrey races cars for a hobby, alongside his dad. A few years ago -- he decided to start designing his own car graphics. ((TILE 9160 18:52:15--19:01:11 "I can do this by myself. I can make it look good. I don't need to contract a third party in order to bring someone in and do this for me.")) It all started when the Charlotte teen was in high school. He said it made a lot more financial sense to design vinyl decals at home. ((TILE 9165 30:30:18--30:35:24 "When something gets ripped up and when something gets torn off I can just go make a new one.")) But what started out as a hobby to help his other hobby -- has turned into a small side business. And he's not just doing cars. ((TILE 9160 22:17:00--22:22:17 "I've actually done boats, I've done some commercial vehicles, our neighbor up there has a farm - I've done a lot of his farm equipment.")) Lowrey uses a computer program called FlexiSign to design his logos. He taught himself how to use it -- and connect to a specialized cutting machine that traces out images. ((TILE 9179 34:51:06--34:59:04 NATS: "The hardest part about this is actually seeing the graphic here.")) He then has to cut it all out...in a process known as "weeding." ((TILE 9161 26:44:25--26:47:25 "NATS: Each component is a different layer to this graphic.")) Trying to figure out the nuances in the material -- he says -- was the hardest part. ((TILE 9160 20:25:00--20:33:07 "There's just different techniques that you really can't look up on the internet. You really can't Google. You just have to go out there and really experience it.")) Lowrey is a self-described perfectionist. He wants to be respected for his name and work. ((TILE 9191 41:38:20--41:41:08 "It's the simplest things that always go wrong.")) Now, he says he hopes to grow his at-home business. He's about to go study more about entrepreneurship in college. ((TILE 9160 23:03:23--23:12:03 "It's really fulfilling to go out there and do something for someone and really help them out and have them feel good about it."))

Lowrey is about to be a freshman at Quinnipiac University. He says he hopes to come back -- and keep his decal business running. He told us he's not only the youngest guy in his race league -- but he also thinks he's the youngest person in the state running a business like this.

A piece of Middlebury's history resurfaced -- bringing back fond memories for some residents. A time capsule -- was buried in the old gymnasium of the town's high school in the 1930s. The building became the town's municipal building in the 1950s. Earlier this year -- Middlebury moved the town's offices down the road ... And the old building was taken apart.

Many farmers across the state are finding new ways to stay viable. That's especially true at the Andrus farm in Ferrisburgh -- Much of the land is too wet for most crops. They grow hay, but it's their rice production that's proving successful. This fall, the family expects to harvest 6 thousand pounds -- which they mill and sell themselves for about 5 dollars a pound. But their 300 Khaki Campbell ducks play a big roll.

((Erik Andrus/Boundbrook Farm: 00:05:29:22 "So the type of rice farming we do is duck rice.

The young ducks will remain in the rice for 3 to 4 more weeks -- until the plants start developing grain.

((TRT: 1:33 ... OC: MIKE MCCUNE)) (( The Vermont American Legion baseball state championship will be decided this afternoon at Castleton. Three teams are still alive after a wild pair of games yesterday that both went to extra innings. --------------- The first game, between Rutland and Essex, was a true roller coaster affair. Essex jumped out to a 4-0 lead...Rutland would then score the game's next seven runs to take a 7-4 lead before Essex came back with three runs in the ninth to tie the game at seven. Rutland actually had a chance to win the game in the bottom of the inning, but had two players thrown out at home to send the game to extra innings. But in the bottom of the tenth... Tommy Kenosh avoids the tag and touches home on another close play to give Rutland an 8-7 win and eliminate Essex... --------------- the late game featured the last unbeaten team in the tournament, Brattleboro, taking on White River Junction ...Brattleboro would build a 2-0 lead before White River scores four runs in the seventh to jump on top...this time it's Brattleboro that would rally in the ninth as Kassidi Ramirez hits a two run, two out single to send this one to extras tied at four. Finally, in the eleventh...White River loads the bases and the pitch grazes Austin Guadette but it's enough to force home the winning run as White River Junction hands Brattleboro it's first loss 5-4. ---------------- So later today, Rutland will play White River at 1pm at Castleton. And the winner will then face Brattleboro at 4pm for the American Legion Championship. We'll have full coverage starting at 6pm. With your sportswrap, I'm Mike McCune. ))
