Three Governors Illustrate Waterbury’s Productive History

Three Governors Illustrate Waterbury’s Productive History

vt-world
  Waterbury was granted by Governor Benning Wentworth, the royal Governor of New Hampshire, to Joseph Abbott and 63 grantees in June 1763. Waterbury was originally six miles square, but in time, its land area was increased by accessions from Middlesex and Bolton. In 1763, many of the proprietors lived in Waterbury, Connecticut and New Jersey. So the name Waterbury came about because many of the original proprietors were from Waterbury. The first meeting of the proprietors took place in Connecticut. The next meetings took place in Newark, N.J., but in the 1780s, the meetings were held in Vermont. The first representative to the legislature was Dr. Daniel Bliss in 1792, and the firs…

Dear Readers,   Just for the sake of variety, I sometimes submit a poem for use in my column space. Variety is the spice of life, as they say, and I do want to keep my column ‘spicy.’ Lately, living has consumed every second of my life, (I guess it has to) and I have had no time for writing new poems. Here is one I published about a year ago. If you remember it, I hope you enjoyed it then, and don’t mind a re-run now. If you don’t remember it, forget what I just said about it being a re-run.   By Any Other Name By G. E. Shuman   I think a lot, of sounds of words; Of why I like some I have heard. And wonder from where those sounds came, When calling som…

Reiss’ Pieces

  Today is the last day that I will be spending with my grandson McKinley on Cape Cod this summer, and I found out that today is also the last day that I am able to write a column. So I suppose I should let you know that this summer, I have been unable to write my columns myself. I have been unable to put my poor, arthritic fingers onto the keys of my laptop computer. After several tries, I realized it just wasn’t going to work. For more than 40 years I have never really missed a week. I was worried about what I was going to do. And I have to tell you about my miracle. Yes, I actually had a miracle. McKinley, who is now 19 years old, volunteered to help me with my typing this summ…

Ghostbusters ****

Ghostbusters ****

vt-world
I can barely remember it, but there was a time when summer movies were just regular films that happened to be released when it’s hot outside. In the early 80s, not every summer movie was a big budget, star-studded special effects extravaganza that promised big action, big heroes, big explosions, and big laughs. The success of “Ghostbusters” (1984) helped alter the future of summer entertainment. “Ghostbusters” was the second highest grossing film of 1984 (“Beverly Hills Cop”). And it resonated with people of all ages. I saw “Ghostbusters” in the theater when I was 7 years old and I loved it immediately. I dressed up as a Ghostbuster for Halloween that fall - with a little vacuum clean…
