Twinfield Drama Club Prepares to Tackle Shakespearean Comedy

vt-world
By Aaron Retherford For a comedy, William Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew is no walk in the park. The unfamiliar language can trip up actors, and directors sometimes struggle with the out-dated misogynistic themes that are present. So what better choice for Twinfield Drama Club’s only show this year? Featuring a cast of just under 25 students from Twinfield Union School, U-32, and…

Brookfield Author Collaborates with 24 Writers To Explore Loss of Best Friend

vt-world
By Aaron Retherford It doesn’t take long while wandering through your local bookstore’s self-improvement section to find books dealing with breakups or romantic relationship struggles. One Brookfield, Vermont author is taking a look at a different type of loss that doesn’t get a lot of attention. Nina Gaby’s book, Dumped: Stories of Women Unfriending Women, is a collection of 25 essays written by 25 women that explore the pains of losing a best friend without knowing why. These aren’t stories of friends who mutually fall out of touch. These are stories of how women deal with the heartache of being “dumped” by their best friends. Gaby, a psychiatric nurse practitioner, has always…

Reiss’s Pieces

Reiss’s Pieces

vt-world
By Judy Reiss In 1965, Malcolm and I were married in November and late in the spring, we bought our house, the same house that we are still living in! Of course, it needed a lot of work to make it habitable. But one of the first things we needed to do was to fix the driveway. What we had was just a dirt path from road to house/barn, so we did what everyone else did at that time. We called Freddie Viens an he took his backhoe and scooped up gravel from the river, brought it up and spread it on our dirt path. And “ta-da,” what we had was a nice driveway. Although I can’t tell you how often, I know that over the years we called Freddie again and again he would bring us gravel. And for ye…

Still Alice ***1/2 There is an old saying that my churchgoing office buddy Debbie likes to repeat, “All things work together for the good.” Obviously that isn’t true. For example, I was raised to root for the New York Jets and the New York Knicks. So after nearly 40 years, I have learned full well that sometimes life is disappointing, disgraceful, and unfair. For Knicks and Jets fans, things seldom work for the good. Perhaps a better example is dementia. Watching a spouse or parent slowly lose her mind is one of the most terrible emotional trials a person can go through. The everyday hassle of having to do all of the tasks - making money, doing errands, paying bills - that y…

By G. E. Shuman I only recently began realizing something very strange was happening to my key ring. It seems, lately, at least over the past year or two, that my key ring has begun to be filled with objects of an ‘other than keys’ variety. There are at least a half dozen things there that have nothing to do with starting my cars or unlocking the doors to my home. Those things are small, plastic tags that are constant remind-ers of businesses that I occasionally visit, but have no desire to be reminded of every time I start my car. They are key ‘tags’, I guess you would call them. The issuers of those tags refer to them as ‘re-wards’ cards. Check your key ring. I promise you, you have som…
