Rutland Me RUTLAND, VERMONT, WEDNESDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 9, 1983 17 Suspects Statements Suppressed by Judge City School Pursues ROTC Program Idea By LOIS WEBBY A judge Monday supressed incriminating statements made by an accused rapist, saying police improperly used a lie detector test to gain a confession. Paul H. Brown, 38, of Castleton had pleaded innocent to raping a woman last June in Fair Haven. His attorney asked the court to supress statements he made to police. In a decision released Monday, Rutland District Judge Paul F. Hudson supressed statements Brown made to Vermont State Police Cpl. Albert Rousse Jr. following a polygraph test but allowed statements made prior to the test to be used in trial. After receiving a complaint of a rape, 'Rousse went to Browns home on the morning of June 2 and told Brown of the womans accusation, Hudson said. Rousse told Brown that he was not under arrest. Brown agreed to Rousses request that he take a polygraph test after telling the officer his version of what had happened the previous night, Hudson said. During the trip to the police barracks, Rousse explained the testing procedure, Hudson said. Brown agreed to submit to the test to clear up the matter without having his wife involved or knowledgeable," the decision said. Because of responses given by Brown during the lie detector test and an apparently incriminating interview after (See Page 20: Brown) Search Is Ruled Illegal, Drug Charges Dropped By LOIS WEBBY Cocaine possession charges against a Rutland man were dropped Monday after a judge ruled a police pat-down search was conducted illegally. In his decision, Rutland District Judge Paul F. Hudson said Vermont State Trooper David Wilson had no reason to believe that 25-year-old Kevin S. Barnes had not gone behind the Green Mountain Shopping Plaza to answer the call of nature. On July 4, according to Hudson's decision, Wilson saw Barnes drive behind the Plaza, get out of his car and walk toward the woods. On being asked what he was doing by the trooper, the defendant responded he was taking a Teak, Hudson wrote. After asking to see a drivers license and asking Barnes to empty his pockets, Wilson conducted a pat-down search of the front of the defendants shirt, the sides of his body, his legs, thighs and waist, said Hudson. The officer felt a large, bulky object in Barness left front pants pocket. It turned out to be a leather case containing a pouch of cocaine, the decision said. Although Wilson had responded to silent burglar alarms in the plaza at (See Page 32: Search) Hubbard Request Denied By MEGAN PRICE Trash hauler Ted R. Hubbard this week was denied a request to deliver some of his clients garbage to the city landfill. Hubbards letter for relief was submitted to the board of aldermen Monday at its biweekly meeting. The hauler, the largest in the county, asked the board to allow him to deposit in the city landfill garbage taken from the Rutland Regional Medical Center, Vermont Roofing, Woodbury Lumber, Mintzer Brothers, Vermont Fiberglass, the former county jail on Center Street, a state-owned building on State Street and the Hogge Penny Motor Inc. Hubbard was fined and suspended from using the landfill earlier this year. His contract with the city stipulates that only garbage collected from Men-don or city residents may be dumped there. But he was found guilty of (See Page 32: Hubbard) FAMILY NITE SPECIAL Pglms Restaurant Every Wednesday Evening Patti Hesse is seen in an old family photograph. Missin g Two Years Later, Questions Remain By JOHN DOLAN Pam Congdon remains convinced that there is a terrible, untold story behind her sisters disappearance two years ago Wednesday. I dont believe she left, Congdon said Tuesday. I believe something was done to her. Congdons sister is Patti Hesse, 35 years old when she was last seen in Rutland on Nov. 9, 1981. Since that day, Congdon said, she has heard nothing of Hesses whereabouts or even of her continued existence. And she is not surprised. Hesse was last seen at the Rutland Shopping Mall on the afternoon of Nov. 9, 1981, according to police reports at the time. Congdon said her sister bought a $200 fur coat that day. Hesse apparently took her new coat home to her room at 81A Davis St. The coat was later found hanging in her closet, Congdon said. And the landlady told Con-gdon she came home that night and found Hesse's din-, ner on the stove, but Hesse was gone. Congdon said she called city police the next day, Nov. 10. But she was told that a person is not considered missing until 48 hours after last being seen. When Hesse did not show up in the next two days, (See Page 20: Hesse) By YVONNE DALEY The Rutland school board will pursue the idea of having an Army Junior ROTC program in Rutland at a meeting of instructors, students and board curriculum committee members Monday night. The school system is considering a volunteer ROTC program for high school students. Ideally, the program would be offered at the Rutland Area Vocational Technical Center, school board members said. Local opinion and teacher and student comment is welcome at Monday nights committee meeting at 7:30 p.m. at the Longfellow Administration building. Rutland Superintendent of Schools Lloyd A. Pete Kelley visited ROTC programs in Burlington and Essex Junction last week. He told board members at their regular meeting Tuesday night that he was quite impressed with the leadership skills students who are involved in ROTC programs acquired through par ticipation in the program. In other business, the board discussed a plan to offer an alcohol and drug-abuse treatment and wellness plan to employees and students. Currently, employees with alcohol and drug problems are entitled to therapy through the schools' health policy. Board members have pledged $500 to participate in a planning grant for an Employee Assistance and Student Assistance Program with other school districts. Rutland's participation is contingent on other area school boards also participating in the program. The idea of the planning grant is to find out what treatment and prevention programs are available to local school districts and what money is available to fund these programs. The concept is consistent with the school systems new and innovative Stay-Well" health plan, under which teachers are given incentives to remain healthy.

KINNEY, M.D. BOARD CERTIFIED INTERNAL MEDICINE BOARD CERTIFIED PULMONARY DISEASE FOR THE PRACTICE OF PULMONARY MEDICINE AND INTERNAL MEDICINE AT 71 GROVE STREET RUTLAND, VERMONT 05701 OFFICE HOURS BY APPOINTMENT TELEPHONE: 775-4040 By SANDI SENECAL POULTNEY - Poultney school teachers marched into Mondays school board meeting demanding contracts and a fair settlement in negotiations. Approximately 30 teachers wearing No Contract buttons surrounded the board members while demands were read. Following this action, Shirley Stevens, a spokesman for the Faculty Association, commented: The faculty is angry over the lack of progress in contract negotiations. Poultney teachers have been at impasse over the contract since last March and have been working without a contract since September, said Stevens. Negotiation difficulties include salary increases, credit reimbursement, and course loads. Stevens said the board offered teachers a base pay of $10,000 for the current year and $10,200 for next year. The faculty has requested a base pay of $10,925. I dont think that is an unreasonable request, she said. The current base pay in the Poultney school system is $9,500. We have one of the lowest base pays in Vermont and Vermont is the lowest in the nation, said Stevens. Another point of contention is credit reimbursement. The faculty wants to be reimbursed for three credits of professional self-advancement, said Stevens. She said the high school currently has $100 to be split equally among the teachers for course reimbursement. Stevens said a majority of the schools around the area reimburse faculty members for up to six credits. Currently, the Poultney faculty course load includes five classes, one study hall, one homeroom period and one preparation period. "The board wants to add one class to each course load, said Stevens. Quick arithmetic shows the extra load does away with one full-time faculty member."
