An Excess of Roadkill in Brattleboro

I’ve had an opportunity to drive around a bit more than usual, and one thing that pretty clear: there are a lot of dead animals on the road right now.

Skunks and squirrels seem to be the primary victims. They are all over, but also concentrated in some places. There’s a spot on Putney Rd where quite a few have failed to make it all the way across. There’s a place along Rt 30 near the bridge that also seems to have a bit of a pileup.

Aerial Photos of Lester Powers’ Procession

On behalf of Public Works, I was able to take a few aerial views of Lester Powers’ funeral procession earlier today.  Lester served the town for 50 years from 1945 to 1995 and operated a road grader for the majority of that time.  As such, Mr. Powers’ family requested one to lead the procession.

Navel Gazing

According to the Abrahamic religions, Adam and Eve were the first man and woman. In the Book of Genesis, God fashioned Adam from dust and placed him in the Garden of Eden.

Subsequently, Eve is created from one of Adam’s ribs to be Adam’s companion. Notice that neither was “Born of woman” in the traditional manner.


Amtrak on Time?

I’m to meet someone coming in on the northbound at Brattleboro and am wondering whether the train is tending to run more-or-less on time? Used to be a variable of a half hour or so, but it’s my sense that the operation has been improving. I expect someone on this site has good, recent experience to report. Thanks.
