Aye Cuz, I don't blame you for leaving the VH Inc. group. All those girls in there thrive off of one another's negativity.

Lori,
I i feel that this forum has been taken over by a bunch of immature young generation punks in my book. All they know how to do is provoke people just to get a rise of of others. That to me is a big turn off. It's too bad that they have a law against spanking their kids. I feel that if their parents discipline them with spankings, them maybe they wouldn't be so bullyish today.
Aint that The truth !

Seems from the time when they were at VH to now. Their behavior hasn't changed. They're still trouble makers and thrive off of their own negativity.

There is a lot of "trolling" in this forum,It is uncalled for ,Carla,Nichy (Swooshie) and Juicy.You three have no respect for the "elder sisters" who were at Valleyhead way before you were.Calling a "sister" that name, was hitting below the belt.This "sister" and I are both autistic.There is a difference between mental illness and Autism,wether you accept it or not.As A Disabled Rights Advocate,I hold that "Bearhug" has the right to stick up for herself,as well as the duty to stick up for herself. I left the VH Inc Group,and plan on sticking to the VH The Positive Side group,where "we VH sisters treat each other with respect."

If any of the posters still check this site, you'll be interested to know that Matthew Merritt and several of his family have pled guilty to major fraud for overcharging the state of Vermont (by more than $3 million) in connection with their operation of the Bennington School: http://www.benningtonbanner.com/ci_23194388/f...

I wonder why Mrs. Powel didn't like you . Per say, for one thing, you r attitude towards other staff and students. You and your friend Swooshie keep ganging up on me. Calling my police department and making false allogations against me. They're eventually going to get tired of you and your side kick calling them to the point where they'll say that you guys are nuts and that you two are trying to create a problem for people that isn't even in your catchment areas. If I were you two, I'd turn the other cheek and walk away from this. You have your people you hang with and I have mine that I hang with. I don't need yours or her grief. After this message, whatever you two say to me on pm or whatever, I'm just going to ignore the wise cracks and consider the source. Hope you folks have a very, very blessed day. God is good all the time and he is there for me through thick and thin. I shall stand my ground and not let anyone corrupt me.

Sometimes it is hard to deal with that type of thing. Hell, you may not have been an easy person to deal with. You may have other issues going on and felt they were attacking you. Not all staff like the clients. Mrs. Powell didn't like me and I have proof of that.

I'll have to quote you on this. When I was there, the girls were always out of control. Some of the staff were physically abusive with the girls. I was mentally and emotionally tortured when I was there. Yes. The restrained me a few times, but that was because I was suicidal at the time.

The Merritts are nothing but greedy, low life money mongers. They would buy old bagels at Berkshire Bagel in Lenox for 5 cents a piece to save a buck! Yes, they physically, sexually and psychologically abused the vast majority of girls that attended those schools. They truely deserve to rot in hell along w/ the millions of dollars they litterally screwed the government out of over the years. They are the lowest of low lifes, out for themselves at anyone elses expense!
