  • Peter Freyne, 1949-2009

    Peter Freyne never missed a deadline in the 13 years he worked for Seven Days. He delivered his political column, "Inside Track," every Tuesday by 4 p.m. and was never subtle about it. Shortly after emailing his article, Freyne would show up at the office to answer questions, argue, check last-minute facts and, depending on his mood, terrorize our staff. His column was the last thing we squeezed into the paper before sending it to press.

    GOD SPEEDER’S Thank you, thank you, for publishing the story about Peter Freyne and the wonderful people at Speeder’s [“Friends of Freyne,” December 24]. It warms my heart to think there are people out in our community who put themselves out for others. When it is really cold, I think about moving to a warmer climate, but where would I go? Vermont is such a wonderful place, and I am blessed to live here with people like Paula Sperry and Marie Claire who really care.

    Curses, Foiled Again A bank robber who had a 10-minute head start on sheriff’s deputies on Merritt Island, Fla., was arrested only a block away, with the stolen cash concealed in his prosthetic leg. Paraplegic Christopher Reed made his getaway on a motorized wheelchair, according to Brevard County Sheriff’s Office Lt. Vic DeSantis, who observed, “He probably miscalculated his ability to flee the scene.”
