In Rumney, some years ago, the discussion at Town Meeting highlighted the (possible) need to fix up the town hall. Seems it had fallen into disrepair. Some said. Others said, it had been standing strong form over a hundred year and would go another hundred easy. No need to spend money “at this time.”
Joe Kent, the moderator, declared a short recess to cool hot heads before returning to the debate.
When some of the legislative body, stepped outside for the break, the town hall door fell off its hinges into the snow.
