Re: “Thin Ice Breaks, and a Game Warden Launches a Dangerous Rescue

Lets stop being jaded over names not being mentioned. This is a lovely article about someone who knew Richie personally and who was the first to jump to save him. Lets stop and continue to think of the family who is still very much in pain over this and needs to have support and prayers, not sad attempts at fame.

Re: “Thin Ice Breaks, and a Game Warden Launches a Dangerous Rescue

True Hero's know what they did and do not need to be offended or hurt if their name doesn't show up in a Facebook article! Nurses, Doctors, paramedics and many others will never get their name in the paper or an article such as this and I don't see them acting immature or disrespectful! Seriously thanks to all those who tried and helped especially those who don't have their names printed in an article and don't care!

Re: “Thin Ice Breaks, and a Game Warden Launches a Dangerous Rescue

It is a very sad story with many heroes. I hope that all of you involved will write more about what you and others did so we can get the rest of the story. And that 7 Days will do a follow up with them.

Re: “Thin Ice Breaks, and a Game Warden Launches a Dangerous Rescue

I'm sorry but this write-up is a VERY slanted take on the first few minutes of an incident that lasted over an hour. It's makes it sound like one person did everything and the rest of us just showed up to lend him a hand, which is a complete misrepresentation of the truth. It says that it's based upon interviews with Mike and myself, but that's definitely not the case. This article omits about 95% of the actual gallant efforts, leadership, sacrifice, and teamwork that went into our desperate attempt to reverse a tragedy.

Re: “Thin Ice Breaks, and a Game Warden Launches a Dangerous Rescue

My hat is off to you Mike! You should be proud, you did your best and that's LL we can ask of you. My thoughts and prayers go to the LeBlanc family but also to you Mike, I can not imagine the thoughts you are thinking and the questions you ask yourself or the nightmares you might be having. My God help you through this difficult time and give you the will power to continue doing the job you do. Thank you ever so much Mike!

Re: “Vermont Inmates Pine for Their Old Kentucky Prison

Housing them out of state has been argued that it violates the federal Equal Protection Clause and the Common Benefits Clause of the Vermont constitution.
