VT Agency of Natural Resources Announces Berlin Pond Decision

The Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation recently announced its decision to grant the City of Montpelier’s petition to restrict use of Berlin Pond, in part, and to deny the Citizens to Protect Berlin Pond petition. The Department found that all internal combustion motors should be prohibited from use on the pond because of the risks these activities can pose to Montpelier’s drinking water. “Berlin Pond is a gem in Central Vermont, easily accessible and yet remote, so I am pleased to announce that Vermonters will be able to continue to access and enjoy the pond for an appropriate, protected set of uses without threatening Montpelier’s drinking water, water that I drink every…

  I have so many little things that I want to share with you, but they’re not big enough to write a column about. So, I’ve decided I’ll give you the little snippets. First, I want you to know that my cats, at least Yul, is what is known in the family as a “free-range” cat. I’m sure you might be wondering what a “free-range” cat is. Our explanation is a cat who goes outside, looks around a little bit, and travels just far enough so he can still see the house. And you might wonder, what does a free-range cat eat? The answer to that, is free-range mice. I wish I could tell you that my free-range cat will also catch all the mice that spend their lives in our house. But that wouldn’t b…

The Book of Mormon ****

vt-world
  Compared to other countries in the civilized world, the United States is strikingly religious. There are far more evangelical Christians, more churchgoers, and more believers per capita here than in Western Europe. It wasn’t always this way. At the time of the American Revolution, the United States wasn’t an unusually faithful place. The Enlightenment was as influential to educated 18th century Americans as the Bible. And deism was more popular than fundamentalism. In the 1820s and 30s, there was a social revolution that was every bit as influential and long-lasting as the American Revolution itself. During the Second Great Awakening, a renewed passion for Christianity swe…

Worcester Supports Labeling of Food Products

Worcester Supports Labeling of Food Products

vt-world
  Many thanks to the 79 citizens of Worcester for participating in the Town Meeting Survey. It was Worcester’s highest total yet! Worcester supported labeling of food, an increase in the minimum wage, and prohibiting cell phones while driving. Following are some comments.   Marijuana “Legalize it and tax it.”   Non-violent Offenders “Depending on the non-violent offense; if it’s narcotic sales and distribution, then no.”   Property Taxes “High property taxes are driving native Vermonters out of the state, especially those retiring or getting ready to retire. Also, the younger generation because of higher taxes and lower incomes. Something has…

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

vt-world
  For most adults, unless you happen to be of a similar profession to mine, the new year begins, each and every year, on the first day of January. Not so, in some ways, for the millions of children in our country, and for their teachers. For them, the new school year, whatever day it starts for them, is a much bigger event than some snowy day on the calendar, shortly after Christmas. The start of the new school year, for kids, can be an exciting, and/or exasperating time. For some it is the beginning of a season of true dread, as summer vacation draws to a close, and the prospect, in their minds, of nearly countless days of classes, tests, and homework assignments looms ahead. For…

  I always thought that my Grandma Bragdon probably saw more changes in her world than anyone I could imagine. She was born a few years after the civil war, can you imagine? And she died in 1967. So what changes did she see and learn to live with? Well, for one thing, she wore long skirts, heavily corseted underwear and heaven only knows what kind of shoes for most of her youth. When she married my grandfather in 1896, they went on their “wedding tour” to Europe and her mother went along! And again, both women wore long, heavy and very fancy clothes. And, of course, she also saw women get the right to vote, the flapper era, the automobile taking the place of the horse and buggy, s…
