The Brattleboro Recreation & Parks Department would like to remind everyone that the Nelson Withington Skating Facility is open for the season and the Public Skating Schedule is as follows.
I’ve been watching Brattleboro budgets for quite a while, through multiple selectboards, three Town Managers and one Interim Town Manager. I’ve watched many Representative Town Meetings as well and participated in a few. That’s a lot of meetings.
While I’ve come to the conclusion that Representative Town Meeting doesn’t really work, I know that it has become cherished and it is unlikely that abolishing it will be on the ballot anytime soon. Therefore, it should be improved.

Today, a friend sent me a set of photos taken on the day of President Kennedy’s assassination. I have seen them before.
The pictures depict the Texas Book Depository, and purport to show GHW Bush standing in front.

In more substantial and long term news, the Department of Public Works got the go-ahead to do a feasibility study to see what new facilities would entail. Nothing will be built anytime soon.
