January 15, 2012

NEWPORT, VT - North Country Hospital CEO Claudio Fort sent a letter last week to 500 of Dr. Leslie Lockridge's patients telling them that the popular and much-loved oncologist would be leaving the hospital employ as of Feb. 10. This has angered the doctor's patients, staff, friends and local elected officials, who are all demanding reasons for this action.
One item at issue is the fact that Fort has reported to the hospital's board of directors, the legislators, and the press that the doctor only has 25 patients and that is not enough to support a full-time oncologist.

Cota Lifts Falcons in OT
NORTHFIELD– Although it would take a almost the entire fifty minutes of regulation and overtime, the North Country girls came away with the 3-2 win over Northfield on Saturday.
"The girls showed their rust early, but they shook it off and played well the rest of the game," said head coach Claude Paul.
Having not had a game in ten days, and limited practice last week due to exams and weather, it is to be expected that the team might be a little slow out of the gate, but it was the Falcons getting out to the early lead in the first.
