Reiss’s Pieces

Reiss’s Pieces

vt-world
By Judy Reiss Every now and then I hear about something that I think is so important to share with you that I am sorry you might think that I am making it up! However, this is not only true, it is actually something that has happened and is happening to my best friend’s daughter. I told her that I was going to write and tell you all about her problem, but she asked me not to mention the name of the company until it was over, if ever! And so I won’t tell you the name of the company this week but I assure you that when this whole episode is over, I will. The main reason I am so anxious to share this with you is to warn you what can happen. My friend’s daughter, who is the same age as my…

The Island President ***1/2 The Climate Change debate in America is terribly polarized. The left dogmatically believes that Climate Change is 100% bad. That position doesn’t make any sense to me. In life, unexpected change is good a lot of the time. And global warming is clearly good for some people - people who own property in Siberia and Greenland, for example. The right, meanwhile, counters with the equally ridiculous argument that Climate Change isn’t real. The progressively receding ice caps and glaciers pretty much prove that the earth is warming. And though it’s clear to me that global warming is good for some regions (like Central Vermont), it’s certainly going to be terrib…

I’ve received several inquiries about how to handle specific situations involving someone with a dementia illness, so this column is all about helpful strategies/tips for living with a loved one who has some form of dementia/Alzheimer’s. How we communicate is vastly different from what we are used to doing and no two cases are exactly the same. Being reasonable, rational and logical doesn’t work…

Vietnam—Our War Of Shame

Vietnam—Our War Of Shame

vt-world
Editor, Since our elected U.S. Legislators, Congress and Senate do not seem to care about our Vietnam War Veterans who are sick from the herbicide Agent Orange Dioxin. I can say I am not proud of our government in the manner in which our veterans are treated. However we did our job and did not question our orders. We believed the Vietnam War was to free a Country from communistic oppression. This is what America is about, Freedom. Freedom is not free, it is costly in lives and dollars. There is no dollar amount I know of that can replace a life. The real cost are those who died on both sides. The dollars mean nothing. Where the dollars do come into play are the dollars to care for…

Vermont Senate Committee Approves Proposal to Regulate Marijuana for Adult Use

vt-world
The Vermont Senate Committee on Judiciary approved a bill (4-1) on Friday that would end marijuana prohibition in the state and regulate marijuana for adult use. S. 241 would make it legal for adults 21 years of age and older to possess up to one ounce of marijuana and establish a tightly controlled system of licensed marijuana cultivation sites, testing facilities, and retail stores. It would also create a study commission to examine issues such as edible marijuana products and home cultivation, which would not be allowed under the bill. It would remain illegal to consume marijuana in public or drive under the influence of marijuana. If approved, the new law would not take effect unt…
