ADDISON COUNTY — This past Saturday afternoon at around 1:30 p.m. Vermont State Police responded to a report of an illegal “tattoo party” at a residence on Crown Point Road in Bridport.
The troopers’ investigation led to the arrest of James St. Denis, 29, of Ticonderoga, N.Y.; he was cited for tattooing and piercing without a Vermont registration.

There were so many questions. She had limited English and the forms before her were very confusing. “I talk slow because I translate in my head.” She needed help. Not a lot of help, but someone to help her navigate through the system so that she could access the benefits needed to stabilize her life.
