Full text of Gov. Douglas' announcement that he will not seek reelection

Governor Jim Douglas announced Aug. 21 in Montpelier that he will not seek a fifth term in office.

I want to thank all of you for coming this morning.

I especially want to thank the members of my Administration for being here, as well as
my staff.

Since January 1973, after I was first elected to the Vermont House, I’ve been making the
trip over the Appalachian Gap from my home in Middlebury to serve the people in
Montpelier.

Snapshots: Jim and Jennifer Vyhnak and the Vermont Ukulele Society

Posted on August 28, 2009 | Blog Category:
By Chelsey Pletts



BRISTOL — After a day of luaus and roving through Hawaii’s scenic vistas, Jim and Jennifer Vyhnak ducked into the first place they saw with air conditioning: Scotty’s Music shop in Kalaheo, Hawaii. Not only did the shop have air conditioning, but hanging just beyond the door were walls of peculiar-looking instruments. The shop owner immediately plucked one of the “miniature guitars” off the wall and handed it to the couple.

“Almost every tourist gets a ukulele,” she told Jim. “But few ever actually play it.”
