Burlington Police Officer jobs start at $60k a year. Starting. Out of the academy. Beat someone? 2-week paid vacation.
I’m using my 4-year degree and teaching license to earn $38k a year, 10 years into my profession.
How much are you making, #btv?

Dave's Corner 💭
I recently completed an online class. It was the first class I had taken in seven years since graduate school. It was a class from Stanford delivered via Coursera. The experience was positive, and I would do it again. The class was free, taught by a world-renowned instructor, and delivered using high quality materials (videos, quizzes, assignments) that were auto-graded. There's really no reason to not do an online class if you have the interest. The time can make itself, because you can do it anytime you're free. There's no set lecture slot you have to attend.

- Demolition by Neglect
From Appendix A, Definitions: “Demolition by Neglect: Any neglect in the maintenance and repair of a structure which results in the deterioration of the foundations, exterior walls, roofs, chimneys, doors, or windows; the lack of adequate waterproofing; or the deterioration of interior features which will or could result in permanent damage, injury, or loss of foundations, exterior walls, roofs, chimneys, doors, or windows or so as to create or permit a hazardous or unsafe condition to exist.”
This property is abandoned and is an attractive nuisance and a health hazard. The windows are open all year and a large hole has been cut into the side of the building. The roof has a tarp flapping in the wind. There is accumulation of trash, a junked lawn mower and grill, garbage around the property, and inoperable vehicles.

Random Burlingtonian Quote of the Day 📝
Comets, earthquakes, volcanoes, and northern lights (in the night,) with many other extraordinary phenomena or appearances intimidate weak minds, and are by them thought to be miraculous, although they undoubtedly have their proper natural causes, which have been in a great measure discovered. Jack-with-a-lantern is a frightful appearance to some people, but not so much as the imaginary specter. But of all the scarecrows which have made human nature tremble, the devil has been chief; his family is said to be very numerous, consisting of "legions," with which he has kept our world in a terrible uproar.
