Brattleboro's Annus Horribilis

My little home town is reeling again. Today a woman was shot by a man, apparently in a pickup truck, and 911 was called from in front of the Shell station near my home. So far the investigation is under way, no names or condition have been released.

This has been an awful year for our town. The huge fire, then two murders inside 2 weeks, the flood, a still-missing teenage boy, now this. How much can happen, how much can our little town bear? We're tough and resilient, but man, this year has kicked our collective ass.

Desperate times and desperate measures...I hope things settle down soon in your home town.

No small town is safe anymore. What happened?
