NEW HAVEN — Thousands of fans flocked on Wednesday and Thursday night to see cars, trucks and minivans collide, auto parts fly, and smoke and steam billow from crushed radiators and bashed engine blocks, all while listening to the deafening din of un-muffled motors and pretzeled metal.

Yes, it was time for two nights of the No. 1 Auto Parts Demo Derby at Addison County Fair & Field Days, which draws more spectators than any single event at the fair, possibly to live out their fantasies of road rage.

Stunt biker wows Field Days crowd

NEW HAVEN — Robbie Pfunder is not a fan of flinching.

For the bike stuntman, who wowed a crowd of fairgoers at the Addison County Fair & Field Days last Tuesday, every inch, and every flinch, matters — especially when kids are involved.

During one of Pfunder’s most impressive feats, audience volunteers Oscar and Maya formed a human high-bar, holding a cord roughly 40 inches in the air for Pfunder to hop over with his bike. As the audience held its breath, Pfunder completed the leap — and both kids jumped back.

New Haven home tax rate drops

Posted on July 30, 2018 |
By Christopher Ross



NEW HAVEN — The New Haven selectboard on July 10 approved a 22 percent decrease in the municipal tax rate, but because the education property tax rate — a much bigger component of the overall property tax bill — went up, New Haven homeowners will see only a modest decrease in their taxes.

The municipal tax rate was set at 29.02 cents per $100 of assessed property value. The town’s residential education rate for fiscal year 2019 increased by less than 1 percent to $1.5943, and the nonresidential education rate increased by 4 percent to $1.6339.
