Fixed-income Baltimore reader sends Christmas Eve gift

December 24, 2022 –

Dear Vermont Daily Chronicle:

I have been sending you a payment each month via PayPal as a contribution to your fantastic news service.  Due to all the work you have been putting into the daily news, here in Vermont, I am beginning to feel rather cheap.  I pay a premium price for online subscriptions to both the Rutland Herald and the Eagle Times (Claremont, NH).  However, you provide a greater volume and higher quality of content each and every day than they do.

So, I’ve decided to cancel my subscription to the Rutland Herald and instead give that same amount to your publication instead.  I will be carrying on with my token monthly donation to you on PayPal for as long as I am able.  Inflation is squeezing my fixed income nearly dry.  I am sending you a check in the mail for the amount of $93.34 for 6 months.  That is what I would have spent on the once upon a time great Rutland Herald.  They are now nearly devoid of anything local and almost exclusively “Associated Press” national and world.  I realize the amount on the check is odd, but that is what their online subscription rate is charged at.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!  Please keep up the excellent work of keeping Vermonters informed.

Vermont native and lifelong resident that I am, I must admit, with some embarrassment, that I didn’t know precisely where Baltimore, Vermont is located. Am I alone in this?

The map says it is an Isoceles Triangle of a town wedged between Cavendish and Weathersfield in southern Vermont, northwest of Springfield. According to the United States Census Bureau, the town has a total area of 4.7 square miles, all land; 7.2 miles of gravel roads; 92 households and 250 people.

So now we know.
