News we don’t hear:

What with such a well-connected small campus, one would think that shooting crimes and the trials of Dartmouth students would be common knowlege. However, leave it to an up and coming local paper to inform us of our own news. Here are some excerpts from the November 21 edition of the Conneticut Valley Spectator:

A 17-year-old Dorchester man has been charged in the connection with the Nov. 7 shooting of a second-floor window at a Dartmouth College office.

Bruce True, 17, of 1672 Route 118, Dorchester, NH, was arrainged in Lebanon District Court on charges of criminal liability for the conduct of another between 11 pm and 3 am Nov. 6 or 7 at 11 Rope Ferry Road in Hanover.

Police contend True aided or attempted to aid another in committing a crime in that he drove a car while his passenger, a juvenile, discharged a .22 caliber pistol in the direction of a building located at 11 Rope Ferry Road.

A bullet was found Thursday, Nov. 7, lodged in an interior wall of the office.

The report goes on to state that True stole the gun, a .22 Waffenabrik GMBH Sierra. So, drive-by shootings in rural Hanover.

Also, from Lebanon District Court:

Emily Lewis, 22, of 213 Russell Sage, Dartmouth College, Hanover, pleaded no contest to criminal mischief. She allegedly defaced artwork of others housed in Clement hall, Dartmouth College, by either smearing yellow paint, spraying yellow paint, or a combination of both, and by ripping or tearing the finished or unfinished painted canvasses of others, on Feb. 23. She was found guilty and ordered to pay restitution to the owners of the art.

We haven’t heard a peep from the D of the conclusion of this saga, even though they plastered the story all over the place last year.
