Noticed Around Brattleboro – Autumn 2018

A place to record your little observations about Brattleboro, such as….

  • New paint for a store across from the Latchis
  • More big, old trees taken down on Oak Street.

  • Flashy flashy

    The crosswalk across Western Ave by Cedar Street now has the flashing lights option.

  • Two loud sounds

    Coming out of WVEW last night around nine, I was first treated to a really loud motorcycle rider revving his engine going down Main Street, and thought to myself “too bad for the people who pay so much to live downtown. It’s noisy!”

    A few steps later, I was treated to a very loud opera rehearsal in the River Garden, with full cast, chorus and orchestra. “Wow, what lucky people who get to live downtown. It’s noisy!”

  • New Sign at Elms Corners

    At the intersection of Maple St and Guilford St/Creamery Rd. They often have interesting or provocative things out there, especially at Halloween or holiday time.

    This time there is a BIG sign, prominent among their halloween stuff:

    HERE’S TO STRONG WOMEN
    MAY WE BE THEM
    MAY WE KNOW THEM
    MAY WE RAISE THEM

    The beauty of this is that it does not mention any of the hot-button issues or people which have consumed our public dialogue recently; it just simply and starkly states a point.
    Many thanks to the people who live there for putting it up, whoever they are!

    If anyone can post a photo of it (my flip phone won’t do that!), I’d be much obliged. It looks good in the original.
