BARTON - Thereâ€™s nothing like a small community to rally around someone during their time of need and that is exactly what is happening for the Nicole Matten family.
Mattenâ€™s family is planning a benefit dance and raffle for Feb. 11 at the Elksâ€™ Club. There is also an account set up at Community National Bank.
The family will use the money to cover funeral expenses and for a headstone for their daughter, seven-year-old Kaylynne Matten, who passed away Dec. 6, four days after her Well Child Checkup. Â
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.
