In reading the Sept. 3 article about the Diversified Occupations program I noticed a pattern. People quoted in the article who are involved in the program directly (staff and parents) and people who spent time with the program, resulting in a recognition of excellence by Vermont PBS, all talk about the students and their successes; quotes by the administrator, superintendents, and a board chairman had no mention of students.

On Saturday, police arrested David M. Field, 44, of Starksboro and cited him for first-degree aggravated domestic assault of a woman at a Second Street home. Police allege that Field kicked the victim around the shoulders and neck and used a rubber object to hit her on the arms, bruising them.
VERMONT — Vermont State Police are looking for the public’s help in finding an unsafe driver who eluded capture in Shoreham late last week.
At around 8:36 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 3, state police attempted to stop an older, green Subaru Legacy sedan in Shoreham after observing multiple traffic violations. The vehicle fled the trooper after the officer signaled the vehicle to stop by turning on the cruiser’s blue lights and siren. The trooper reported that the car was being driven with gross negligence and at excessive speed.
MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury police cited Katherine Robinson, 22, of Weybridge for driving under the influence on Painter Road on Sept. 3 at 8:25 p.m.
Police said they measured Robinson’s blood-alcohol content at 0.243 percent, which is more than three times the state’s legal limit of 0.08 percent.
In other action last week, Middlebury police:
• Assisted a Cross Street resident who was having a mental health issue on Aug. 31.
