Celebrate Your Loathing of Black Flies at Adamant’s 14th Annual Blackfly Festival

Celebrate Your Loathing of Black Flies at Adamant’s 14th Annual Blackfly Festival

vt-world
By Aaron Retherford Do you hate black flies? Try living in Adamant. Actually, maybe you shouldn’t. Adamant's black fly problem is so dreadful, that in order to garden, residents are forced to wear full-body protective nets—fittingly sold at the Adamant Co-op. It’s so bad, residents decided 14 years ago, that if you can’t beat those ruthless blood suckers, join them, spawning the annual A…

By Judy Reiss Every now and then, you either hear something or read something or even see something that brings you back, in a flash, to when you were young! And I have to tell you that is exactly what happened to me the other day! I received a catalog the other day from the Vermont Country Store and as always, I looked through it but not too carefully, at least the first time. I put it aside in the bathroom and my intention was to look at it more carefully at a later date and of course, to leave it for anyone else who might want to look at it. Well sooner than I had anticipated, I had to spend more time in the bathroom and in order to fill that time, I started to look at the Vermont C…

Thin *1/2 There’s a memorable scene in “The Sopranos” where the boss of the New York family – Johnny Sack – is in prison and his wife and kids come to visit. Johnny Sack’s wife is obese. His eldest daughter is just as big. And his youngest daughter is rail thin. She angrily accuses her mom and sister of talking about nothing but food. This three-minute scene contains more honesty and insight about eating disorders than the entire documentary “Thin.” It seems like the socially appropriate, politically correct thing to say is that people with anorexia and bulimia are sick. The unpleasant truth, however, is that the society around them is sick. Low self-esteem is the root caus…

Prices to Increase at Green Mount Cemetery

Prices to Increase at Green Mount Cemetery

vt-world
Editor, Montpelier’s largest cemetery, the Green Mount Cemetery on lower State Street, has cemetery lots – both full burial lots and cremation lots – on beautiful sites for sale. Prices for these lots will be going up in August, so if you or someone you know is potentially interested in purchasing a lot, it might make sense to contact the cemetery soon, before the price increase takes effect. The prices of lots include funds dedicated to the perpetual care of the lots. If you would like an information packet about lots, or a consultation appointment, please contact cemetery director Patrick Healy, at 223-5352 or email cemetery@montpelier-vt.org Jake Brown, chair Montpelier Cemete…

As we go through this life, we often times have to make choices for ourselves and our loved ones that we wish we could avoid. We can either try to delay the decision or work through the process and come to the best decision possible. This week’s column addresses this process, which is not always and easy one. Dear Grace, I’m helping my sister Judy who is in the early stage of dementia and t…

Autism Puzzle Foundation Leaves Lasting Legacy on Barre with Imagination Station

vt-world

After 10 years of fundraising, the APF’s founding Board of Directors decided it was time to end their monthly grant program and go big to give one lasting gift to Barre. That $75,000 gift became a reality…

By Judy Reiss Last week I told you all about my wonderful little Yorkie, Lily. And this was a subject that I know everything about. She has been with me for almost 14 years and we have spent almost all of that time together. But this week, I am going to go outside my comfort zone and talking about something I know very little about. Why, you ask. Well, the answer is because I want to. I don’t know about where you live, but where I live the bears are definitely marking their territory. By marking their territory I don’t mean that they are lifting their legs. Nope, what I mean is the bear population has decided to take back the land and the places that they have used for centuries. Now…
