Print Story | Email Story
STAMFORD, Vt. — A gathering for residents of Stamford and Clarksburg, Mass., who are concerned about recent break-ins has been scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 14, from 1 to 3 at the Stamford Valley Golf Course.

The meeting is being called by a new local crime watch in both towns. Community watch signs will be distributed along with information about the break-ins and how to help protect yours and your neighbor's homes. The watch will also be gathering e-mails as a way to alert residents. Because of the daytime hour of the meeting, organizers suggest leaving one person at home.

In the meantime, watch organizers urge residents to call 911 immediately if you sight someone suspicious in your neighborhood and write down description, plate numbers and states of suspicious vehicles and note the time and date.


The most recent break-in reportedly occurred some time around noon in Clarksburg.

Contact Clarksburg Police at 413-663-7795, Vermont State Police at 802-442-5421 or 911.

SVHC Podiatry Residency Program Graduates Two


Cody Anderson and Kurt Malkames are shown with their certificates of completion.

BENNINGTON, Vt. — Southwestern Vermont Health Care has graduated two residents in the Podiatry Residency Program. 

At a small masked-and-distanced gathering of health system leadership, Cody Anderson and Kurt Malkames were awarded certificates of completion.

“It's tough to leave. The mountains are beautiful, and we made a lot of friends here," Anderson said. "I have enjoyed all of the people I have met and the tight-knit community."

"I had excellent training here, and I enjoyed it. I am appreciative of the staff for dedicating their time to my training," Malkames said.

Dr. Anderson will originate a hospital practice in a rural community in South Carolina, and Dr. Malkames will join a private practice in Silver Springs, Md.

"I am very proud of them. They did extremely well and are prepared to face all of the aspects of podiatric medicine and podiatric surgery," said William Sarchino, the program's director. "I wish them luck and encourage them to keep in touch as they progress in their careers. They are a part of the SVHC family."

Six residents are currently in the program. They are third-year residents Shazad Buksh and Breton Fox, second-year residents Kyle Lewis and Nathalie Santos, and first-year residents Daniel Hennessey and Daryl Silva.
