Vermonters know global warming is happening now, and they are concerned about the impacts of climate change on future generations. Extreme weather events like Irene – which exacted a huge price on people’s lives and their pocketbooks – portend the kind of devastation we can expect from a warming world. Solutions that match the magnitude of the problem – and can turn this challenge into opportunity – are needed now.
There is a growing, diverse coalition – Energy Independent Vermont – working to do just that by calling for putting a price on carbon pollution. A fair, strong, carefully crafted tax on carbon pollution can accomplish three important goals:
As part of the Wellness in Windham Spring 2015 calendar, BMH certified orthopaedic physician assistants Maureen Mahoney, PA-C, ATC and Wayne Temmen, PA-C, will present a program on Monday, April 27 at 6:00 PM in the Brew Barry Conference Center. Their topic of discussion will be living with osteoarthritis.
“Osteoarthritis is one of the most common forms of arthritis. It is a chronic condition in which the material that cushions the joints, called cartilage, breaks down,” says Maureen Mahoney. “This causes the bones to rub against each other, causing stiffness, pain and loss of joint movement. About 27 million people in America have osteoarthritis.”

International Jazz Day at a UN Underwriting Genocide in Yemen After Having Ordered Libya's Obliteration and Korea ReconqueredBy jay janson | Sat, April 11 2015
Some, if not most, of the most accomplished jazz musicians in the world performed brilliantly at the United Nations on International Jazz Day, April 10, 2015, at the same time sanctifying with music a failed United Nations, which, since its creation by the colonial powers, has facilitated genocide for profit of the amoral wealthy elite of Western speculative interest banking. Why? Celebrities as influential role models have added responsibility for the actions of their government.
I moved to Brattleboro in 2010 am am required by my health insurance to have a PCP (primary care physician). The first physician I found to be my PCP retired. The second just told me she is closing her practice. So for the 3rd time in 4 years I am looking for a PCP.
I have a challenging health condition that cannot go untreated. I am looking for suggestions for an MD or NP. I prefer a woman, and I will not go to Brattleboro Primary Care. Any ideas?
Not much needs to be said about this musical comedy duo. They hit it big during the 60’s, first poking fun at the coffeehouse folk music scene with their interrupted musical numbers and brotherly disagreements, then as counter-culture leaders challenging the boundaries of television.
We’ll celebrate by showing a couple fo their best known routines, and an episode of the 60’s comedy show.
Brattleboro, VT—On Sunday, May 3, starting at 3 p.m., people will be jumping from a boat into the chilly water of the West River to benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters, doing their part for The Marina Restaurant‘s Plunge for Charity.
The inspiration for The Marina Plunge, now celebrating its 10th Anniversary, came in 2003 when several Marina employees jumped into the river to celebrate a birthday. The following year they decided to make it an annual event for charity.
That year, a handful of individuals were thrilled to raise $1,500 for The Gathering Place, an adult day care center. Since then, the event has seen steady growth, according to founder and organizer Deirdre “Dee” Baker of Brattleboro.
The Guilford Community Church, UCC will hold its annual Book Sale on Saturday, April 25, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Excellent current and collectible books will be offered, including a selection of children’s and young adult books. “Vermont.calm” T-shirts will also be available for purchase.
The sale helps support the many local and global missions of the church. From Route 5, just beyond the Guilford Country Store, turn left onto Bee Barn Road then right to 38 Church Drive.
For further information contact Pat Haine (802) 257-0626.
Georg Steinmeyer passed away recently, just a few weeks after his wife, Hanne.
Georg was a very interesting person. He grew up in Germany as part of the Steinmeyer organ building family, and came to Brattleboro in the fall of 1955 to work as Director of the pipe organ division of the Estey Organ Company. He often told the story of getting a transatlantic phone call in Europe from the United States, a rare occurrence, asking him to take the job.
Unfortunately, Estey’s days were numbered. Georg helped to oversee the building and installation of the final pipe organs built by the company.

How I wish Brattleboro would follow Westminsters lead. This mornings Reformer let us know that residents of Westminster will be receiving a mailing with information regarding their "new" trash/recycling program. Included with the mailing will be 52 STICKERS FOR 52 WEEKS OF TRASH ................. and they're FREE, FREE, FREE! If residents use more than one bag per week they'll have to purchase additional bags for $3.00 each. This is a perfect example of those in charge governing and at the same time considering and showing compassion and understanding towards their residents.
On Tuesday, April 21, there will be a formal inspection of the I-91 Bridge. Daylight is needed for the inspection, so the bridge will be closed from approximately 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM. At the same time, the PCL team will repair potholes that developed over the winter. I-91 will be closed between Exits 2 and 3 both northbound and southbound. Traffic will be detoured onto VT Route 5.
Northbound I-91 traffic has been relocated onto the southbound bridge. Traffic will remain reduced to one lane in each direction on I-91 until completion of the new bridge. The new bridge will be 104’ wide and is designed to carry all four lanes of traffic –two northbound and two southbound.
A reader in West Brattleboro writes to alert us to the recent wave of break-ins in West Brattleboro, and sent along this summary of a conversation with the Brattleboro Police sent out in a West Brattleboro Association e-mail, for details:
Maybe it was those snowflakes in our weather forecast, but I had a lot of snow-related synchronicities this week. It started with the news that a new monument had gone up overnight in Brooklyn’s Fort Greene Park, not far from the Brooklyn Bridge. The monument consisted of a bust of Edward Snowden, with his name emblazoned across the column below it in big Roman capitals. It was an impressive gesture by a group of artists who wrote (as you shall see below) some powerful things about freedom and heroism and the public’s right to know. And even though the government covered it up, by sending park employees to smother Snowden’s bust in a tarp so no one could see it, civil disobedience had happened and it was noteworthy. Check it out — it’s a nice statue.
Brattleboro Comedy Duo Performs Benefit for Local Radio Station
Brattleboro comedians Jay Gelter and Ben Stockman are taking their radio show,REAL PEOPLE with Jay and Ben, out of the recording studio and onto the stage on April 24, 8:00 pm at the Hooker Dunham Theater in Brattleboro, VT to benefit Brattleboro Community Radio.
Inspired by comedy podcasts like Comedy Bang! Bang! and The Dead Author's Podcast, the show features Gelter and Stockman interviewing the "real people" of Brattleboro, who aren't real at all, but rather one of them or a special guest playing a bizarre character in a weekly improv tour-de-force. The show airs every Thursday at 10 pm on WVEW-LP 107.7 FM and is posted as a podcast the next day on their website and iTunes.
April 2015, Brattleboro, Vermont -- Thursday, April 30 an opening reception for an exhibit of acclaimed photographer, Amy Arbus, will be held from from 5 - 8pm at Mitchell • GIddings FIne Arts at 183 Main Street, Brattleboro.
The exhibit, After Images, will run from April 30 to May 24 and is a series Arbus made in 2011 and 2012 to payhomage to her favorite painters such as Balthus, Cezanne, David, Ingres, Modigliani and Picasso. The images will seem familiar to most viewers. They are photographs of live scenes staged to replicate the powerful effects of original paintings from the early 20th century, Arbus's team painted costumes, props, and the models themselves. What has materialized is a series of hybrid images that challenges the thin line between painting and art photography.
