"I felt that intense heat, and said 'Wow.' . . . There were large fans blowing on the workers, . . . but they were still soaked in sweat," said Ballard, now the city administrator.

BURLINGTON, Vt. - Although it is the very essence of Vermont, Burlington is decidedly not one of the quaint village towns that define the popular image of the Green Mountain State.

Trevor, the son of former NHL star Wayne Gretzky, plays leftfield for the Burlington (Iowa) Bees, the Angels' Class A affiliate.
