Typically in an interview, the reporter asks a question and the subject answers (as best they can anyway). Well, thats not how it happened last week when I interviewed Mark Lavoie on the phone. I (the reporter) asked the questions and Lavoie (the subject) answered through his harmonica. No joke, he played several different riffs and diddies in place of sentences and explanations.

Posted on September 8, 2016 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



FERRISBURGH — The work of a Ferrisburgh official has come under scrutiny and opened the question of whether the 19th century form of small town government is appropriate to Addison County’s third-largest municipality.
