Unlawful Trespass.: On 7/11/13 at 15:30 (3:30 pm) Vermont State Police responded to a reported trespass violation at the residence of Norma Randall in Cavendish, VT. Randall is the Animal Control Officer for Cavendish. A dog owned by Michael Mills had been running in the roadway and a concerned citizen brought the dog to the town hall. Randall ended up taking the dog in. Mills had gone to her residence and did not want to comply with the town animal control laws. Mills entered her house without permission, took his dog, then left. On 7/14/13 Mills was taken into custody for Unlawful trespass (felony) and transported to the Rockingham Barracks where he was processed and released on a citation. He was also charged with operating a vehicle with a suspended license.  VT State Police Press Release

Phone Scam-Warning for Seniors: According to Brattleboro Police, a senior was contacted to make an appointment to have a medical alert system installed. That senior argued the system was never ordered - and alleges that the person on the other end of the phone said it must have come from a concerned loved one. Police say the caller then pushed for an installation date and other personal information. The department is reminding seniors when in doubt hang up the phone. WCAX 

Community Placement for VT Sex Offender on Hold: There has been considerable press and digital outreach in the past few days about the release of a high-risk sex offender in Springfield. On Thursday evening, this changed. A Vermont corrections official and the police chief in the town of Springfield say plans to have a high-risk sex offender live in that community on his release have been put on hold. Springfield Police Chief Doug Johnston tells The Associated Press a relative who had offered housing to 53-year-old Timothy Szad when he's released had rescinded that offer. Kris Goldstein, treatment chief for the state program that treats sex offenders, says that means release plans for Szad are uncertain. But she says he must be released as scheduled on July 26 - a week from Friday - because he will have served his sentence maximum. And Goldstein says Szad won't be subject to any supervision by the Corrections Department after that date. WCAX

The Town of Cavendish presents the next in a continuing series of Wednesday evening concerts on July 31st at 6:00 p.m. when Yankee Chank will appear at the green in Proctorsville.

Yankee Chank is a Vermont group who perform traditional Cajun music from the heart of southwest Louisiana.  Why does a Vermont band play Cajun music?  Primarily because the French-speaking people of eastern Canada, our immediate neighbor to the north, was the inspiration for the southern Cajuns.

Yankee Chank has been performing both Cajun and Zydeco music around Vermont and beyond, using fiddle, accordion, guitar and bass since 1996.  The band’s performances offer a distinctive immersion into this unique regional music.

This concert is sponsored by The Inn at Glimmerstone Mansion in Cavendish.

This is the fifth in a series of seven concerts coordinated by the Cavendish Community and Conservation Association.  All concerts are free and open to the public.  Bring a blanket or chairs and a picnic dinner.  Join with friends or make new ones.  Please help continue this Wednesday evening tradition in Cavendish.  Everyone is welcome.

This coming week’s concert, July 24, on the Proctorsville Green, is Chris Kleeman. Thursday nights are now Rec Night at Greven Field. Both activities start at 6 pm.  Rain location for concerts is CTES.  To learn more about upcoming events in Cavendish and surrounding towns go to:
