LynnCoale8176.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — Lynn Coale harkened back to late 2001, when he applied — almost as a lark — to become director of the Patricia Hannaford Career Center (PHCC). He was finishing his Ph.D. studies and checking out career opportunities in school administration.

But neither Coale nor his family truly thought they would consider leaving their native Wyoming, where they had accumulated great friends and business contacts.

MarkLavoie7808.jpg

Typically in an interview, the reporter asks a question and the subject answers (as best they can anyway). Well, thats not how it happened last week when I interviewed Mark Lavoie on the phone.
