Barre beagles Betty and Wilma safely home

A recent Barre FPF posting by Joyce…

“My two beagles escaped yesterday around 9:00am… They are black, white and tan, 25lbs. and 1 1/2 yr. old. They are sisters, Betty and Wilma. If you have a sighting let me know.”

Followed a couple days later by…

“Lost dogs are home, thanks to Front Porch Forum! Yesterday a neighbor brought the dogs back. Thank you so much!”


Public Outreach 101 in Vermont…

“I sat in a line of traffic on the south end of the bridge in Vergennes for 45 minutes this morning because they were paving Main Street. If before the construction started there had been a traffic sign or it had been posted here on FPF… I would have taken another way around Vergennes… I drive to Burlington many times a week and I never saw a sign. I look at FPF daily. I didn’t see a posting for it.”
• Laurie, Vergennes FPF

“To everyone affected by the paving of Main Street this week, please be understanding and patient. Business owners received a letter from the city notifying them of the project. The decision to not use FPF was a mistake and for that I apologize. This project was long overdue and the scheduling came together quickly. Please do your best to avoid the bottlenecks and keep patronizing your local businesses. I assure you, everyone will be proud of the finished product.”
• Bill Benton, Mayor, City of Vergennes



How did this Vermonter find a buyer for his classic Jag in the Bahamas?

From Brian on the Waterbury FPF…

I sold my classic Jaguar! The woman who bought it for her husband has a place in Stowe but read my series of postings at their other home in Nassau, The Bahamas!

I advertised the car in the Burlington Free Press, Craigslist and Hemmings Motor News… Response : nothing.

I must have had a dozen on Front Porch Forum.
