Mystery Triangle

The image in this article is a book cover showing the 3 Giza pyramids in Egypt.

At the lower right, you see sort of a green triangle. It’s not something I would expect to see next to the pyramids.

Can anybody guess what it really is?

Drone of Leaf Blowers

Is anyone addressing the annoying and endless drone of leaf blowers? Do we live in Vermont to listen to this noise hours on end? Killing the silence of our rural life. I know California has laws regarding them. We should at least have hours of day and limits to how much of this we who live here have to put up with listening to them. Thoughts?

Oct 25 Meeting About Preventing Harm to Brattleboro Residents from Opiods and other Drugs

Many people in Brattleboro are aware that opioids and other drugs harm some of our community members.  One organization that works on this problem is the Brattleboro Area Prevention Coalition, or BAPC, for short. Among other things,  BAPC members help facilitate the collection of unused opioids like oxycontin, so that they can be removed from Brattleboro, and disposed of; help smokers who want to quit find the resources to do so; help local bars train their staff so that they don’t accidentally serve teenagers; teach young children how to avoid getting poisoned by pills that look like candy, and many other harm-prevention related activities.
