Thoughts of Thanksgiving, and a great recipe.

Thoughts of Thanksgiving, and a great recipe.

vt-world
Thanksgiving, in a word, and as a word, is a mouthful. The long, feasting-table-length wish of “Happy Thanksgiving!” fills the air with syllables, and the mind with fond memories of food and family. The very thought of Thanksgiving Day, to many of us, brings an anticipation of aromas wafting from warm, turkey-scented kitchens. Gravy-drenched garlic potatoes, steamy stuffing, pickles an…

Consuelo Northrup Bailey: Vermont’s First Woman Speaker

Consuelo Northrup Bailey: Vermont’s First Woman Speaker

vt-world
When Consuelo Bailey was 15, she was a spectator at an inheritance trial of a prominent St. Albans woman. The basic argument against the woman who deserved the money was that she was too small a woman to inherit a large amount of money. The case appalled Bailey, and must have been in the back of her mind when she graduated from law school and became Burlington’s Grand Juror. It also must have been in the back of her mind as she became Speaker of the Vermont House and Lieutenant Governor of Vermont. Bailey was the second woman in the nation to be elected Speaker and the first woman in the nation to be elected Lieutenant Governor. She was born in 1899 in Sheldon, Vermont, and received st…

*1/2 Some people say that humans are destroying the planet. I don’t think that’s true. Generations ago, doomsayers said that the earth was becoming overpopulated. Today, we are easily feeding a much larger human population with fewer farmers. When I was in elementary school, news anchors warned us that hairspray and discarded McDLT containers were depleting the ozone layer. Thirty years later, I can still go outside without sunscreen. When I was in middle school, science teachers told us in no uncertain terms that human excess was causing global warming and it was getting worse every year. However, check tomorrow’s low tem-perature on your Weather Channel ap: we can agree that the earth…

Reiss’s Pieces

vt-world
All of my children, which are four, all of my grandchildren which are 8, can and do use the Internet to buy stuff. I, on the other hand, can’t! Now, let me explain what I mean. What I mean is they are able to go onto the Internet, find the store or the place that sells the type of things that they want, and they buy it. I am able to go onto the Internet, most times find the kind of thing that I want and that is when the problems for me begin. For some reason and I admit that I have no idea why I can’t make the next step work, but I can’t. Regardless of how easy the steps are to purchase a certain item, I just don’t seem to be able to do it. Don’t think that I haven’t tried, because…

Healthcare is a Human Right

Healthcare is a Human Right

vt-world
Editor, Last week I spent the day of the elections at Hartford High school, asking people to sign petitions in support of the Healthcare is a Human Right campaign. One of the points I pressed was no matter what happened in the voting booth, we must continue to hold our politicians accountable for the things we need in order to live lives with dignity. My experience tells me that no matter whose in office, without an organized force demanding change, those in power will continue to listen to the lobbyists that have their ear. Even Anthony Pollina, the Progressive Senator from Washington County, proposed using VSEAs health care plan as a template for single payer, which would embed harmful…
