We’re going back a bit further in time, however, to 2006 when they met in the Laois minor final, a game in which Camross entered as champions having won the final the year before, amazingly for the first time in their history (they only won their second in 2017).But Clough-Ballacolla were in the process of bringing through a fine generation of players and they duly claimed their third minor title in five years – three years later they would claim their first senior since the Ballygeehan days almost 90 years earlier.On this occasion Clough-Ballacolla were 0-12 to 0-10 winners, captained by Darren Maher and with other current seniors like Willie Hyland, Tom Delaney and Willie Dunphy playing too.For Camross, current senior players Martin Burke, Darrell Dooley, Zane Keenan, Dean Delaney, Andrew Collier and Thomas Burke all started while Lorcan Burke was among the subs.We’ve delved into Alf Harvey’s archives to bring you the photos from that game and for the record the teams were:CLOUGH-BALLCOLLA: James McLoughney; Liam Meade, Ken Phelan, Niall Bergin; Tim Delaney, Darren Maher (captain), Lorcan Broderick; Tom Delaney, Willie Hyland; Aidan Doyle, Liam Hyland, Willie Dunphy; Shane Hyland, Joe Phelan, Michael Harrison.

LABELLE — Sheila Mueller is one tough customer. She, her roommate, and her son have been living in a tent in her yard in Hillebrandt Acres for two months since Hurricane Ike destroyed her home. Yet, she continues to have a remarkably good attitude and seldom complains. Mueller said all she really wants for Christmas is a FEMA trailer. “We had a chance to get a motel at first, but they won’t take us because they’re all full. All the apartments (available) are in Houston,” Mueller said. “They may bring us a mobile home. If we can rebuild, we have to send in the estimate. I don’t know if they’ll tear down the house or not. I don’t know how long it will be before we get a trailer.” Mueller’s house was “beat up” by Hurricane Rita, yet still liveable. It flooded this time from Ike. “I have my ups and downs. I don’t care for rainy days. My mattress is soaking wet this morning. But, it’s better to be at home,” she said. “I was depressed at first. I try to keep up a good attitude. There’s nothing you can do about it. “I thought about fixing up my garage or my breezeway. I like it out here. I see a lot of people with for sale signs and they’re moving, but I’m staying here,” Mueller said. With chilly weather forecasted this weekend, she’ll pile up with blankets and fire up the chiminea. Mueller also said Entergy blew out her utility line while connecting to her house before Ike, and she doesn’t have any appliances to use. Since then, she’s been using a cooler and eating Meals Ready to Eat. “The church (LaBelle Baptist Church) was giving out meals and stuff. We just had the church to depend on at first. Rita, too. It’s just wait and see. I had my crying moments.”
Vermont Business Magazine The US Department of Agriculture (USDA) and Windham & Windsor Housing Trust (WWHT) celebrated National Homeownership Month at Putney resident Dennis Miller’s new home at Locust Hill Mobile Home Park Tuesday. Miller is the first homeowner to purchase an energy efficient modular home through USDA Rural Development’s Energy Efficient Manufactured Home Pilot Program.“Manufactured homes have long offered an affordable housing option for many Vermonters, however older manufactured homes often have high maintenance and operational costs,” said Ted Brady, USDA Rural Development Vermont and New Hampshire State Director. “The energy cost savings of new manufactured and modular homes, combined with USDA’s long-term, low-rate, no-down-payment mortgages, offer existing and potential manufactured housing park residents new financing opportunities.”Miller, a Putney resident employed by the Putney School, purchased a Vermont-made Net Zero Energy Capable VERMOD and placed it in the Locust Hill Mobile Home Park owned by Windham & Windsor Housing Trust. Miller’s purchase, coordinated by Windham & Windsor Housing Trust, was completed with financial support from Champlain Housing Trust, the Vermont Housing and Conservation Board, Efficiency Vermont and USDA Rural Development.USDA Rural Development’s Energy Efficient Manufactured Home Pilot Program allows low income homebuyers to purchase a high-performance modular or manufactured home in a manufactured home park using a 30 to 33-year mortgage at 3 percent. Very low income homebuyers may be eligible for an interest subsidy down to 1 percent. Brady noted that park tenants seeking a mortgage to purchase a new home and site it on a leased manufactured park lot traditionally face short-term, high-interest mortgages.Two models of high-performance homes have been approved for purchase through the pilot program, the Better Homes AHEAD Manufactured Home and the VERMOD modular home. Homeowners in Rural Development-approved parks are eligible for participation in the program. More information on Rural Development’s Energy Efficient Manufactured Home Pilot Program can be found on the Rural Development website or by contacting Jill Chapman at (802) 828-6022 or by email at [email protected](link sends e-mail).Rural Development and Windham & Windsor Housing Trust celebrated Miller’s new home and Homeownership Month during a service project in the Locust Hill Mobile Home Park. Park residents and community members joined staff in cleaning the park and in planting a community garden.The Windham & Windsor Housing Trust has been strengthening the communities of Southeast Vermont through the development and stewardship of permanently affordable housing and through ongoing support and advocacy for its residents since 1987. WWHT now provides 707 affordable apartments throughout Windham and Windsor counties, coaching to families to help them prepare for and navigate the home buying process, and direct loans to homeowners for repairs, energy upgrades and accessibility improvements.
