STATEHOUSE SARGE GOING BYE-BYE
STOWE'S SPAULDING WILL HAVE MORE TIME FOR, UM, HUNTING
Kermit Spaulding, a fixture of a name in Stowe and Montpelier, will be retiring as sergeant-at-arms come February. His replacement will be Montpelier's Francis Brooks.
Spaulding will be remembered for years of public service, ranging from his service in the house of reps, to his dedication to youth sports and Crime Stoppers. The indefatigable Spaulding was involved in a dizzying amount of activities; at various times he was a tennis official, zoning dude, guardian-ad-litem, forest resources committee member, justice of the peace and basketball referee. He's even in the Lamoille Valley Bowling Hall of Fame, an honor we all strive for.
Spaulding will also be remembered for something else: shooting at a deer decoy from his pickup truck - one of those gotcha moments. He eventually resigned his chair on the Vermont Fish and Wildlife board because of that violation. Hey, he was just having some fun! Who doesn't enjoy firing ammo at a decoy from their 4x4. Geez.

We imagine there are plenty of strong candidates ( in Montpelier alone ) to qualify for the stringent terms of this employment position. Good luck.
