Reiss’s Pieces

Reiss’s Pieces

By Judy Reiss I went to a state college (now university) in New Jersey in 1957-58, and I went there because it was the only place I could afford. I had to work my own way through and although the costs were small, it still was hard for me to cover all my expenses. But, I have to tell you, I really liked it. And before I go on, I do want to tell you...

By Judy Reiss Well, it is tax time again and it would appear that our legislature and our governor have lots of ideas and programs on how to tax Vermont citizens. And I can’t think of a much harder job these days. One of the reasons is because it would seem that these days everyone wants something and no one really wants to be responsible for his o...

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...

By Judy Reiss My wonderful grandmother was born just after President Abraham Lincoln was killed. I am not quite sure of the date; just I believe it was about 1870. Her stories about her childhood and growing-up experiences made my childhood a wonder! Remember she wore long skirts and corsets and was taught to behave like a lady from day one. And al...

By Judy Reiss No one was more surprised than I was when, one day, I found myself unable to walk without a cane! A cane? Me? I had always thought that canes were for “old” people, so what was I doing with one? Actually, I have to tell you that a cane was really a compromise between me and my wonderful physical therapist. I promised her that I would...

By Judy Reiss In 1966, my first son, Tobi, was born and no one was more thrilled than I was to have such a wonderful baby and to be a mother. However, I really knew very little about how to care for him. He was born at DeGosbriand in Burlington, but I was extremely fortunate to find Dr. Ellerson in Montpelier to be his pediatrician. I firmly believ...

Back when the dinosaurs roamed, I was in high school. And although my class was big back then, in reality it wasn’t “big” by today’s standards. Although I am never quite sure, I think that there was 130 in our class. But what I think is interesting as I look back was this. Back then you either took a college preparatory track or a business/secretar...

Regardless of all the varied and sometimes stupid ideas I have gathered over the years, the one that I still feel is absolutely correct is that everyone in the United States of America deserves to have enough to eat and a warm place to live. We are a great country and in this country no one should go hungry nor should they have to live on the stree...

Vincent and Diane Gauthier, lifelong residents of the Mad River Valley decided that it was time to plan something that would bring the Valley community together again, so...

I was shocked the other day when someone told me that kids today are never read Grimm’s Fairy Tales. “What” I said, “why?” And the answer was that they are too scary for children! So, of course, I thought about it for quite a while and decided that I need to refute that crazy thought. When I was little, I loved the Grimm’s Fairy Tales and was never...
