Interesting. I'll never forget the day I was told Vox (who I worked for in Bennington at the time) was selling Barre/Montpelier. He saved that one for last, with a pause thrown in. I was in Virginia not too long after that.
Okay. Your turn to ramble....well, I got one more thing on the jump..... So this has gone national, even finding its way into one of my many radio comedy services. Har har har, yuk yuk yuk:
AND THEN THERE'S .....
Michelle Bachand, 26, a Vermont State police dispatcher, who brought drugs to a training session at the police academy. Bachand was found with the marijuana on her person during a class for civilian police dispatchers held at the academy. She was arrested and is no longer employed as a dispatcher.
Unfortunately for Michelle Bachand, of Lyndonville, Vt., common sense seemed to evade her last Friday when the 26-year-old dispatcher allegedly showed up to an employee training session at the Vermont Police Academy carrying marijuana.
