Man exposes himself at baseball field

Williston police are looking for a man who exposed himself to a jogger at Rossignol Park last week.

Officer Jon Marcoux said a woman was jogging on a path above Rossignol Park around mid-day on Friday when she saw a man on the Little League baseball field with his hand down his pants. The woman continued on her route, which took her on the loop of Avenue D, and then ran back past Rossignol, Marcoux said.

The man was lying on the baseball field with his hand still down his pants when the woman returned. Upon seeing her again, he stood up, dropped his pants to his ankles and masturbated, according to Marcoux.

Marcoux said the man was able to see the path from his vantage point, but he was out of sight of passing motor traffic. Police were called to the scene at 1:20 p.m. Marcoux said he searched the area on foot, but did not find a man fitting the description given by the jogger.

Marcoux described the suspect as a white man in his early 20s. He was 5 feet 10 inches to 6 feet tall and wearing a baseball cap with a logo, a light-blue T-shirt and a pair of long, silky shorts.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call 878-6611.

    I am writing in response to Mr. Hoxworth’s article on transportation costs for the poor in Vermont. I would like to suggest further research on this topic before we simply just give another handout or tax credit. The poor, may, have a higher disproportionate burden on their transportation costs than the wealthier residents of Vermont; however, they also have a lower disproportionate burden on taxes and housing. Pick your evil.
    We can simply just give every poor Vermonter an energy efficient car, gas card, free tuition, renter’s rebate, etc.…but the only way out of poverty is through the combination of education, hard work, and discipline. Education and degrees are not handed out or purchased; a person has to EARN them. This seems to be the only way out of poverty—sorry, there are no shortcuts.
    If we continue this trend of enabling, our entire state will be a welfare state.
