Teen pleads not guilty to felony grand larceny

Ok so ... You "found the jewelry in an apartment" but didn't know it was stolen? I'm almost positive if it wasn't YOUR apartment that you FOUND them in, removing them is in fact stealing.  (Sep 26, 2011 | post #2)

New 112,000-square-foot Walmart in Bennington gets Act 25...

That area would actually be a better spot for walmart anyway. Northside drive is a cluster$&@* of idiots trying to figure out what a green light means at least down by home depot there's a better chance of less congestion.  (Sep 26, 2011 | post #5)

Route 9 bridge in Woodford may re-open by next week

Hope they get the water fixed soon too and then hope they don't crush the new pipe fixing the road!  (Sep 3, 2011 | post #2)

Vt. Woman Charged With DUI With Kids In Car 1hr

Can't they just start impounding the cars of these ppl who drive drunk and with a suspended license? It seems to me that should be automatic. Obviously if you have a suspended license you screwed up at least once before, then to get caught driving again while suspended? Take the damn car away from these ppl! Yes they could borrow a car from someone they know, if that happens and they get caught the person that lent them the car should be warned and if it happens again they should be charged with something.  (Sep 2, 2011 | post #2)

FEMA

President Barack Obama speaks about Hurricane Irene in

I actually saw quite a bit of coverage on that maybe not 24/7. Missed my point though. As far as Obama goes, I'm sure the rural communities of Vermont aren't going to matter to him either. The only place he might have cared about was his precious vacation spot on martha's vineyard and as far as I know that's not been affected. In fact if you noticed the poor guy cut his what 5th vacation this summer 1 day short to get out of there and head back to DC. Not bc he was springing into action, just bc he knew he'd be safer at the white house than at the vineyard if it did hit as a hurricane.  (Aug 29, 2011 | post #88)

President Barack Obama speaks about Hurricane Irene in

Not to mention, here in the east coast we get 24/7 coverage of the Santa Anna winds and fires every year among other things. Don't assume all eastern coast people are egomaniacs. We can't control what the media chooses to show you.  (Aug 29, 2011 | post #84)

President Barack Obama speaks about Hurricane Irene in

I live in southern Vermont. I actually couldn't find local coverage of what was happening around me. The only coverage I could find was on the weather channel and all they talked about was NYC and storm surges. The only info I got was from friends on Facebook posting what was going on around them. While I personally other than being w/o water, have not been affected many towns and villages here have been flooded out, cut off, and destroyed. Tragedy and loss of human life on any scale is sad and I find it a sorry statement on the condition of the human race when tragedy is turned into a pissing contest.  (Aug 29, 2011 | post #83)

Of course they hope to install 5000 over the next 2 years. By that time they can start all over again replacing the ones that don't work anymore. It's the circle of light!  (Aug 18, 2011 | post #3)

Man runs freelance photography business

My dad used to donate flowers to the green guerillas when he was alive and they did an article for that. Sure it kind of looked like advertising for him but he didn't even know about it. It was all done through the gardening group.  (Jun 2, 2011 | post #9)

4 indicted on drug-related charges

otherwise law abiding" that's like saying "hey except for all those people Bundy killed, he was a nice guy". Doesn't mean the law wasn't broken.  (May 31, 2011 | post #15)

Vendor permit fees rankle eateries

Isn't the vendor across the street some kind of Indian take out? How is that similar to burgers fries and ice cream?  (May 27, 2011 | post #2)

State plow truck rolls over on Route 313 in Arlington

Hmm are they trying for all brand new trucks? Or since they can't plow between 9p-3a are they going too fast trying to catch up on everything? Or maybe breathalyzers should be installed...if the operators are anything like 85% of this state they're all drunk.  (Mar 10, 2011 | post #3)

I'm not going to recycle... It will cost me more in gas to bring back the bottles than I'll get for returning them.  (Mar 5, 2011 | post #2)
