KITTY TURNS 100
Quick piece on WCAX this morning about Burlington's "Kitty" Green and her achievement - reaching the century mark. "Kitty" lives at Burlington Health and Rehab with - get this - her 96 year old sister! Geez, those gals should write a self-help book on longevity.
Green, born in St. Albans in 1906, is known for having a positive attitude, which could be one of the reasons she's been around this long.
Here's to your first hundred years, Kitty.

CARVING UP SORRELL
If you think the Sanders-Tarrant race is bitter, try out the AG tilt. Repub candidate Dennis Carver has, at various times, accused Bill Sorrell of protecting the corrupt, lying to the people, and doing nothing when he should have been doing something.. Carver was so insulting on a recent channel 17 debate, a caller, who admitted he wasn't a big Sorrell fan, told him to stop the attitude and keep it civil. Here's a tag line from Carver's website, which by the way, is not a bad site, technically speaking:
I have taken every step I know to convince the Attorney General to live up to his oath of office. He refuses.
The current Attorney General is the problem; I intend to be the cure.
Carver, 59, garnered over 90,000 votes in his last run against Sorrell, back in 2004.

FIVE CORNERS UPDATE - Essential collection
I was at the Essex Junction Five Corners Light so long this morning my car depreciated 2,000 bucks. I'm not kidding. The guy from Capital in Essex came over while I was idling and said, " Hey, Boy - since you been at this here light , the value of yer car has gone down substansurly." (sic) Writers - don't you love hangin' a sic once in a while. Also, have you noticed more newspapers are putting [sic] in parentheses than brackets. Picky-picky.

Some of them salespeople at Capital are so smooth they could tell you to go to hell and you'd be lookin' forward to the trip!

How can Carver run for Attorney General when he's not an attorney?
Sorrell seems to be the logical choice.

Sorrell is getting beat up in the debates. He's trying to take the high road while Carver is just firing away. Sorrell should have just agreed to one debate and one debate only, claiming Carver was not a credible candidate.
