users are being hit with what appears to be an email scam know as “phishing” in which a scammer tries to get you to give up your email address and account information. I’ve gotten a few of these in the past couple of days.

Lacking two members, the Brattleboro Selectboard took up a relatively light agenda in their absence. A liquor license was approved for The Tavern, Selectboard goals were approved, and new members were appointed to town committees.
Town Manager Barb Sondag took advantage of the reduced work load for the meeting and took time to educate new board members, and the public, about budgets, committees, and other various reports that Selectboard members receive.
The class was short but informative, and the meeting’s business was done within an hour.
Scapin directed by Stephen Stearns, April 11-20
About the Play:
Scapin is a Commedia dell’arte style, comic farce written by Moliere, one of the greatest masters of comedy who ever lived. NEYT uses the rave review off-Broadway adaptation created by America’s most famous clowns, Bill Irwin and Mark O’Donnell, who starred in the original production. It is literally laugh-a-second mayhem!
Two clever servants trick two rich and gullible fathers out of their millions and arrange for their sons to marry two mysterious women whom the fathers detest! NEYT graduating seniors Henry Weisel and Alec Silver will be featured as the two servants, Scapin and Sylvester, who get themselves into the wildest and most ridiculous scrapes.
The Town is planning to install new sidewalks on the east side of main Street, starting at the Gilbert Memorial Bridge and continuing north to Walnut Street. Some sections of this sidewalk were recently replaced as part of a VTrans project.
The Downtown Sidewalk Project will replace the sections that have not yet been upgraded. The project is intended to improve safety for pedestrians and create a more attractive Main Street.
We invite you as a resident of Brattleboro, property owner, or business owner along the Downtown Sidewalk Project route to attend a public meeting on April 25, 2013 at 6:00 pm in the Selectboard Meeting Room at the Municipal Center located at 230 Main Street.

Reports are coming out about a pair of explosions rocking the finish line area of the Boston Marathon. We’ll have to wait to know more of what happened.
When I was a kid, we happened to be visiting in Boston the day of the Marathon. It was easy to get near the finish line and watch the runners cross it.
