Rumney Memorial Teacher Releases Novel Geared Toward Middle Schoolers Who Want to Make a Difference

vt-world
By Aaron Retherford In recent years, popular tween-focused literature has leaned toward fantasy worlds involving wizards, vampires or teenagers fighting to the death. But what about literature geared toward teens who care about the reality right here in their backyards? Katy Farber, a sixth-grade teacher at Rumney Memorial School in Middlesex, decided to take a different approach in her f…

Reiss’s Pieces

vt-world
By Judy Reiss I am not sure what Random Acts of Kindness actually means any more! I am ashamed to admit I think being kind to someone today is a lot different than it was in the past. Now, many kind acts can be misconstrued as interference which would negate whatever kindness that you thought you were doing. Don’t think that I am just writing the first thing that came into my head, because that wouldn’t be true. I have been thinking about those Random Acts for a long while and for an old woman to do, it is difficult, but I don’t think impossible. Anyone can think of some little thing they can do for a friend or good neighbor. What is harder is to do something for a young person, unless…

Exodus: Gods and Kings *1/2 I know this isn’t news to anyone, but it really is striking how different Jesus is from God in the Old Testament. Jesus had a clear, focused game plan. In the course of a year, he taught us how to live righteously, he founded his earthly church, he died for our sins, and he defeated death by rising from the grave. God in the Old Testament is never that efficient, comprehensible, or altruistic. For example, God’s behavior in the Book of Exodus is inexplicable at best, cruel and capricious at worst. God tolerated the fact that the Hebrews were enslaved in Egypt for 400 years and then decided that it is unacceptable. What made Him suddenly go from pass…

Middle East Equilibrium

Middle East Equilibrium

vt-world
Editor, Due to indecision by the Obama White House to support moderate Sunni rebels in Syria, Islamic terrorists in Syria (ISIS) were able to reposition forces and attack the Iraqi Army, which folded and abandoned its U.S. equipment, including many Humvees and 155mm guns. The Iraqi government requested air strikes against ISIS, but President Obama ignored the request, referring to ISIS as the “JV Team”. The result was ISIS captured our military equipment, and established territory from which they can launch terrorist attacks. We belatedly decided to send advisers to assist the Iraqi Army, and we launched air strikes against ISIS. We appear to be fostering equilibrium in the Middle East…

Library Story Times Provide Children With Necessary Skills

Library Story Times Provide Children With Necessary Skills

vt-world
By Aaron Retherford Kids don’t need to go to a prestigious preschool to be well prepared for kindergarten. They just have to head to their local libraries. Most libraries in central Vermont provide programs that nourish young, developing minds and bodies. Jaquith Public Library in Marshfield isn’t the only library in central Vermont with a weekly story time for young kids. But it provides the complete package. Children’s librarian Sylvia Smith leads a weekly story time that is followed by a play group. Jaquith Public Library Director Susan Green said around 25-30 parents and children (birth to 4 years old) attend the program. For the first 30 minutes, children listen to stories…
