Reiss’s Pieces

Reiss’s Pieces

 I think that what I hate about “spring,” what passes for spring in Vermont, is the cold, dreary weather! When we are blessed with a sunny day, I can hardly contain myself. It is during those lovely days that I envy those who actually have a spring at this time of year. You know what I mean - those who can look out their window and see beautiful little flower heads poking through the green grass and as the flowers grow, the birds accompany their growing with wonderful songs and chirps! Yes, that is my idea of spring.When I was a little girl and lived in New Jersey, my grandmother always took me to buy new “party” shoes for Easter. I can remember that magical day as clear as day.…

Not Bugged by the First Bug

Not Bugged by the First Bug

vt-world
 Yesterday afternoon I was briefly entertained, by a fly. I know, I need to get a life. But this fly was a special fly, as it was the very first house fly I had seen alive since before the winter of 2013 ice age occurred, here in Vermont. He or she, I’m not sure which gender the fly was, or even why I said he or she, was just leisurely walking around on the outside of my windshield, as I sat in my car, waiting for my wife to return from the pharmacy. The fly was, apparently, simply getting some exercise for its little fly body, and was totally unaware that a creature of immense intelligence (everything is relative) was watching its underside as it did so.I don’t normally enjoy i…

Rescind the Potholes, Not the Bond

Rescind the Potholes, Not the Bond

vt-world
 Editor: Early in Waterbury’s history, it is assumed the voters voted for roads, streets, bridge, schools, etc. Now if only those votes had been rescinded, we would have no potholes, no schools, no town and no taxes. How perfect would that be?How fortunate we be that there were no rescinders, and how fortunate we’d be if there were none today. I guess their theme is there is no future for our community, and if there is, it’s not their problem.Well, I, for one think Waterbury’s future is very bright in spite of those who can’t think beyond next Friday. Would they please stop embarrassing the rest of us for all of our sake, please vote No! to Rescind. …
