Hop Down the Rabbit Hole at the Cheshire Cat — A World of One-of-a-Kind Clothing Designs and Art

vt-world
By Matt Coutu Much like the fictional Cheshire Cat character from Alice in Wonderland, the clothing store in downtown Montpelier, can be a tad difficult to find. Located in a back alley on Elm Street, adjacent to the Tulsi Tea Room, you can’t help but remember the namesake when you enter the building, and immediately begin to smile. The business is owned and operated by Lucy Ferrada, wh…

Another December

Another December

vt-world
By G. E. Shuman December, here in the North, is all about snow, cold, and Christmas, for most people. By the first of this month we have just finished off the last of the Thanksgiving turkey leftovers, (thankfully,) and are bracing for winter. Some are not bracing, but embracing the idea of a ‘white Christmas’. I don’t understand those people. Christmas, and I mean, the true meaning of Christmas, is a wonderful, miraculous thing that is not given enough thought during the season. Christmas, in the way most of us Americans actually celebrate it, is not quite as wonderful, at least not to me. Presents are fun to give, cards are nice to receive, and another big family gathering is a fine…

Creed **** On “South Park,” there are new characters this season called ‘Memberberries.” ‘Memberberries are little talking grapes that sit on the vine all day, reminiscing gleefully about the things that they remember from their youth. “’member Captain Kirk?” “‘member Chewbacca?” “Ooh, I remember!” People eat the ‘Memberberries and become addicted to the mind-numbing nostalgia. Every once in a while, the ‘Memberberries remember other aspects about the past. “’member Reagan?” “’member when marriage was just between a man and a woman?” “’member when there weren’t so many Mexicans?” “South Park” is arguing that the guys in our society have been hypnotized by our unhealthy lo…

Reiss’s Pieces

By Judy Reiss For me, pets only mean three things. And the three are, of course, dogs, cats and birds. And if you wonder why, it is because those are the three type of pets that we have had over the years. Of course I am not counting the Guinea pigs or other such rodents because they were always at our house for a very short time. I know that some of my children brought home a gerbil for us to care for during a holiday break and I vividly remember the shrieking when a parakeet that we had worked her way out of her cage and one of our cats snatched it, wounded it and then leaped at the gerbil’s cage, banged open the door and as I arrived I saw the tail of the gerbil as it slid down her thr…

Guest Opinion: A Record of Fiscal Responsibility

Guest Opinion: A Record of Fiscal Responsibility

vt-world
By Governor Peter Shumlin One of the key responsibilities of governing is crafting a budget that reflects Vermonters’ priorities and lives within our means as a state. As we transition this important responsibility to the incoming Administration, it’s worth reviewing the last six years of financial management. Let’s remember where we started. Before I took office, Vermont’s budget routinely grew at upwards of 7 percent. In 2004, the total funds budget grew by 7.8 percent above the year before. In 2005, it grew by 13.4 percent. In 2006 it grew by 7 percent. Then the Great Recession hit, decimating state budgets, just as it did family budgets, around America. Because of that economic cont…

Statement by Sen. Bill Doyle

Statement by Sen. Bill Doyle

vt-world
For the last 48 years, it has been my great privilege to serve the residents of the State of Vermont as one of the State Senators from Washington County. I worked closely with seven governors and hundreds of fellow legislators as we tried as best we could to steer our government to meet the ever changing needs of Vermonters and the state we love. On election night this year, the initial results indicated that I had fallen short in my effort to return to the Senate for another term, which would have rounded out a half century of service. At the urging of many of my longtime constituents, I requested that the votes be recounted to assure that the voters’ true choice was reflected in th…

Montpelier Death Café Helps Eliminate Stigma Surrounding Dying

vt-world
By Matt Coutu When first hearing of a Death Café, the idea might seem a bit morbid at first, but it is anything other than gruesome. In Montpelier, Michelle Acciavatti and Fred Cheyette are two of the four Death Café facilitators working to break down social barriers containing the stigma known as death. “I call myself an End-of-Life Specialist,” Acciavatti says. “I assist people with adv…

With the busy holiday season approaching, I’ve received inquiries from caregivers with concerns about the holidays. Dear Grace, My father, who is quite frail, is spending the holidays with us this year. I’m thrilled to have him and I want to make sure he feels included in all the festivities. How can I do that without exhausting him? I’m afraid he’ll get overtired and get sick. Thank…
