ADDISON COUNTY — On this past Sunday, Oct. 23, Vermont State Police responded at a little past 5 p.m. to a report of a single-vehicle rollover crash on Monkton Road in Monkton.
While en route to the crash, a bystander reported the driver had taken off into the woods.
Vergennes police responded to assist and provide a K-9 to track the driver.
Police found the driver, 36-year-old Ian Nye of Ferrisburgh, walking on Hollow Road in Monkton approximately two hours later.
The vehicle, a 2009 GMC Sierra, appeared to be a total loss.
VERGENNES — Between Oct. 10 and 23 a variety of incidents kept Vergennes police busy, including traffic accidents and violations, an assault, an arrest on an outstanding warrant, calls to help other departments and agencies, and mental health and family issues.
In that two-week period, Vergennes police:
• On Oct. 10 checked the welfare of a Main Street resident on behalf of a relative who had not heard from her recently; she was OK, police said.
It started in Indiana in February. Friday afternoon speaking at one university, and Monday morning at another. It made little sense to come home in between, so I spent Saturday trying to get caught up on work and writing. And on Sunday I found a guide to take me steelhead fishing on a small tributary to Lake Michigan.
HEALTH CARE: Nearly every economically developed country in the world provides healthcare to all of its citizens at much less cost per person and of quality higher than ours in the United States. We should be able to do that. While Vermont is not in a position to go it alone right now, we are working to contain the costs of healthcare and improve access to care in Vermont. Vermont learned from Vermont Health Connect that we don’t do well overseeing huge technology projects, especially when on short, mandated timeline.
HEALTH CARE: In the past, we’ve had a purely private solution that’s left many millions of Americans without health care at all, and many others with only marginally affordable care. Medicare, Medicaid, and the Veterans system have been essential to providing care to many tens of millions of Americans. They should continue.
