Meet Jim. He liked watching curling on TV before the U.S. won gold.
Jim was born in Woodsville. He wants you to know that the only reason he wasn't born in Vermont was because Woodsville had the closest hospital. Jim has always lived in Vermont. He grew up in South Ryegate and that has been his home but for a foray to Wells River. His first job was at Kelly's, a defunct grocery store in Woodsville where the furniture store is now. Most of his work has been in the retail industry, with stints at Ocean Job Lot and Vermont Flannel Company.
Jim lives with his wife, daughter and stepson in his hometown. They have 5 cats and 26 chickens at last count. He started working as a Sales Associate at Farm-Way in Bradford about 3 weeks ago. So far, so good. Jim is 41.
Favorite pizza topping: hamburger meat, mushrooms and feta
Favorite Winter Olympics sport: curling (he's liked curling for years)
