Healthcare is a Human Right

Editor, Last week I spent the day of the elections at Hartford High school, asking people to sign petitions in support of the Healthcare is a Human Right campaign. One of the points I pressed was no matter what happened in the voting booth, we must continue to hold our politicians accountable for the things we need in order to live lives with digni...

Reiss’s Pieces

I know this may be redundant, but I just can’t help myself! It is almost Thanksgiving and it is time for me to remind you about our forefathers/mothers and what they went through to make it possible for us to sit down with family and friends and eat ourselves silly.

Thoughts of Thanksgiving, and a great recipe.

Thanksgiving, in a word, and as a word, is a mouthful. The long, feasting-table-length wish of “Happy Thanksgiving!” fills the air with syllables, and the mind with fond memories of food and family. The very thought of Thanksgiving Day, to many of us, brings an anticipation of aromas wafting from warm, turkey-scented kitchens. Gravy-drenched garlic...

Consuelo Northrup Bailey: Vermont’s First Woman Speaker
