Hometown racer Jason Allen captured his first career Thunder Road Late Model win in the WDEV/Calkins Portable Toilets Trophy Dash on Thursday, July 30.

Stormlight By Earnest A. Hemmingdwyer Light rain falling Sky, wind-textured, And mottled like A farmgirl’s face. Light rain falling— Will it be warm Or cold? So many people Far too many for comfort Stormlight dim Settled on the hardware floor the dust Blossoming flowers through the varnish Upon Seeing a Seedling By Earnest A. Hemmingdwyer What should our emotions be When a fragile plant we see Ensconced in concrete Wedged in a crack Forcing down Its roots ? Should we Take courage Or just ignore Give fleeting thoughts to The wonder that this plant lives? Earnest A. Hemmingdwyer is a Vermont native who lives on a rural homestead growing his own vegetab…

Let the Fire Burn **1/2 It’s a known fact that black men are targeted by the police. If you happen to be male and black, you are more likely to be harassed, beaten, arrested, and killed. Is this unfair to black men? Obviously. Is it racist? Not necessarily. The majority of black men who are law abiding are being punished because a significant minority of the black community are violent criminals. Let’s imagine we’re 20 years in the future: a new crime wave has hit the United States. The murder rate is skyrocketing. But it isn’t due to the black community, which has become significantly more peaceful and prosperous. Most of the killers are skinny bald middle-aged Jewish guys. I…

Reiss’s Pieces

By Judy Reiss I guess everybody knows that we have two cats and two dogs. What you may not know is one cat, Victor, is very old, a Siamese cat around 16, and the other cat, Yul, is about 14. Then we have two dogs, Lily, a 13-year-old Yorkie who is blind and deaf, and 3-year-old Rufus, who is a standard poodle in good health. What I want to share with you is how we give all of our loved ones the medications they need to stay happy, healthy, and productive. Let’s start with Victor. Victor, who’s real name is Victor the Tree, was named by McKinley when McKinley was only 3, and he has been an amazing cat. But this winter he started to get thinner and thinner, although he ate like a wolf.…

Technology, Friend or Foe to Vermont’s Children and Families

Editor, I think most of us understand that technology devices and the Internet are here to stay. They are part of all of our lives whether in our doctor’s offices with online medical records or the many ways we use smart phones, laptops, work place computers, on-line games, directional tracking, news and weather updates and television or alternatives to television in our home and when we travel. Technology has transformed communication and made our world smaller and smarter. Though all that is true, it is vital to remember that our children learn from how we conduct ourselves in all aspects of our lives, including our relationship to technology. If we are checking our emails at the dinn…

Planned Parenthood’s Practice of Selling Aborted Babies is Disgusting

Planned Parenthood’s Practice of Selling Aborted Babies is Disgusting

vt-world
Editor, I was relieved to read in an opinion piece of another paper, one that has a history of being “pro-choice”, that “..the idea of harvesting and trafficking unborn baby parts makes us feel pretty squeamish about our defense and understanding.” However, there is something worse here than how the body parts of already dead babies are treated. Even worse than selling body parts from already aborted babies (if anything can be worse than the abortion itself), Planned Parenthood is acting as a merchant, taking pre-orders and selling the body parts of living children, then dismembering those still living children in ways that keep the merchandise valuable, and simultaneously kill the ch…

Autographed Guitar Returns to Local Musician After 10-Year Journey

The fabulous, almost serendipitous ReSOURCE Store in Barre gave native son and musician extraordinaire, Jim Miller, one of the biggest surprises of his life – a “cheese slicer” guitar that he and many other local musicians had signed back in 2004 when it belonged to Riverwalk Records on Langdon Street in Montpelier. The guitar showed up recently at the ReSOURCE Store and employee Tom White kn…

Gov. Peter Shumlin, Barre Mayor Thom Lauzon, and public safety and emergency management officials today provided an update on last night’s flooding affecting parts of eastern and central Vermont, including Barre and Plainfield. The fast-moving storm dropped between four and six inches of rain last night. Barre and Plainfield appear to be the hardest hit by the storm and flooding with both communities reporting widespread road closures during the storm. Those towns and others in central and eastern Vermont are doing assessments today with VTrans district technicians to determine the current status of roads and what repairs need to be made. A number of local roads remain closed and moto…

The Battle of Hubbardton, a Turning Point to the American Revolution

The Battle of Hubbardton, a Turning Point to the American Revolution

vt-world
The Battle of Hubbardton was the only Revolutionary War battle fought entirely in Vermont, and it marked the beginning of the end for British General John Burgoyne and his strategy to continue to New York and divide New England from the rest of the colonies. American Major General Arthur St. Clair, retreating from Fort Ticonderoga and Mount Independence, had left at Hubbardton about 1,000 men to form a rear guard. Through this maneuver, St. Clair was not only able to escape after the British arrived with his weary and tattered main army, but he also stopped the pursuing forces. The American forces at Hubbardton were comprised of Vermont’s Colonel Seth Warner with a detachment of Green…

I honestly believe that in my lifetime we will see a country once again governed by Christians…and Christian values. What Christians have got to do is take back this country, one precinct at a time, one neighborhood at a time, and one state at a time. — Ralph Reed, Executive Director, the Christian Coalition
