ALSO: small amounts of Pfizer vaccine to arrive in VT Dec. 10 / Barre flag-flying schedule posted
At 3:39 this morning, Vermont State Police received a call that a resident of a home on Lamkin St in Highgate had been awakened by two males allegedly impersonating Vermont Fish & Game Officers. The two males assaulted the homeowner to include strangulation and the pointing of a firearm.
The two males were wearing dark in color jackets with camouflage pants and face masks. The Vermont State Police are requesting assistance with any information regarding the identification of these two males and encouraged to contact the St. Albans Barracks.
Early availability of vaccine – A Covid-19 vaccine will be available in Vermont in very small quantities by December 10, Health Commissioner Mark Levine said at today’s press conference.
The Pfizer vaccine must be kept at -70 below zero (fahrenheit). Vermont does have some freezer capacity to -73, Gov. Phil Scott said.
Barre flag-flying schedule posted – Tuesday night, the Barre City Council agreed to fly the Black Lives Matter flag in City Hall Park in December, the Blue Lives Matter flag in January, and another flag every month through October, 2022.
The plan, a compromise to an original proposal to fly only the BLM flag, was bitterly opposed by BLM advocates. A pro-BLM flag supporter on the Council condemned the “hatred” of the pro-police flag, and said there are people in Barre who “cannot see past their hatred.”
