“I came so close to being gone; you’ve got to feel lucky,” Damone, 76, said on Thursday during a visit on his back porch, where a stray bullet changed his world almost three months ago.

“I’m standing — how can you be mad?”

BRIDPORT — Addison County State’s Attorney David Fenster’s decision on whether to prosecute the suspect in an Aug. 13 accidental shooting in Bridport is not likely to happen for several days as Vermont State Police continue their investigation into the case.
