KATHLEEN SPANO'S 15 MINUTES OF FAME
To all harried parents of young children:
Unless you want to have your name splashed all over VPR, Burlington Free Press, and the rest of the media dogs, take your kids with you when you go inside a store - or anywhere, for that matter. Kathleen Spano, who left her kids in the car in Macy's parking garage and claims she went into Macy's looking for a kid's hat, came out to a police surprise party. The cops claimed they had been waiting for Spano for about a half an hour, and that was after a good citizen reported the situation.
How old were the kids, you ask? 7 and 2.
FUEL FOR THE CITY
Ever wanted to keep tabs on local gas stations - just to see who's charging what?
Well, we're starting a new weekly feature that keeps tabs on eight stations in Essex, where we're based. We figure we'll have fun seeing what each station charges each week. Here goes.
Maplefields Essex - Mobil - $2.33
Essex Discount Bevy - Citgo - $2.33
Bushey Sunoco - Full - $2.35
Dave Whitcomb Citgo - Full - $2.35
Go Go Gas - ? - $2.29
Champlain Farms - Exxon - $2.31
Fairgrounds Beverage - Citgo - $2.31
- Go Go has mystery gas. Your guess is as good as mine.
- The full serves are running a couple of pennies higher this week.
- Maplefields is said to be more pricey, but they have nice bathrooms! Over the next few weeks we'll find out if they are charging more than Simon's, who also sell Mobil. Does Maplefields peddle a better Mobil? Doubt it.
