An open letter to Senators White & Balint,
It is my understanding that the appointment of Karen O’Neill as a “neutral” on the Vermont Labor Relations Board is pending confirmation by Senate. I am writing in opposition to that appointment.
The applicable law states that “‘Nominees with neutral backgrounds’ means individuals in high standing not connected with any labor organization or management position, and who can be reasonably considered to be able to serve as an impartial individual.” 3 V.S.A. § 921 (B)
NOBODY IS ABOVE THE LAW
MUELLER FIRING RAPID RESPONSE
Donald Trump could be preparing to put himself above the law.
Trump could create a constitutional crisis if he fires special counsel Robert Mueller or Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who oversees Mueller, or attempts to compromise the investigation by other means.
Our response in the hours following a potential power grab will dictate what happens next—whether Congress will stand up to Trump or allow him to move our democracy toward authoritarianism.
Join us on Wednesday, April 18, from 7-8:30 pm for, “Where Why When How What ? Ask anything you want –this is your chance!” in the Main Room at Brooks Memorial Library.
This brief discussion about the benefits of Advance Directives will be led by a panel which will include the perspectives of Cindy Jerome, ED of Holton Home and Bradley House, Dr. Bob Tortolani, Attorney Ed Burke, and Shabir Kamal, ER Nurse. After the presentation, there will be a moderated question and answer session.
Recently, I saw a story about 12 senators sending a letter to the FCC about the Sinclair Broadcasting company..
This article is full of coincidences. 12 Senators on the 12th of April. April 12th is the 102 day of the year. 102 is 12 in numerology. In Gematria, FCC=12 in English Ordinal. F is the 6th letter, C is the 3rd. 6+3+3=12. Think of the symbolism of the number 12. 12 months in a year. 12 disciples of Jesus, 12 tribes of Israel, 12 signs of the Zodiac. Time is measured in 2 groups of 12, the 12 labors of Heracles. The 12 step program. 12 is the square root of 144. 144,000 is a significant number for religious people.
I have solved the mystery of 9/11: Lee Harvey Oswald did it!
Getting back to reality…
“United States is overwhelmingly and increasingly in the hands of a very narrow sector of corporate wealth, private wealth and power. They have counterparts elsewhere who agree with them and who interact with them and that’s who rules the world.” – Noam Chomsky

Mitchell • Giddings Fine Arts is excited to host an Artist Talk with Matt Brown on Saturday, April 21 at 5pm. Brown will be discussing his current exhibit “Conversations with Color Woodblock Prints”, on display at Mitchell • Giddings Fine Arts through May 6. The talk will include a demonstration by Brown of the Japanese hanga method of printmaking used by Hokusai, Kunisada and Hiroshige, a technique in which each print is created entirely by hand using water and pigments applied to multiple carved wooden blocks. One woodblock corresponds to one color within a print, and each is transferred to paper by a small hand-held baren.
“Conversations with Color Woodblock Prints” features over 40 prints, with many new pieces, as well as watercolor and pencil studies, working proofs and progressive states, providing viewers a glimpse into the artist’s continuous dialogue with his imagery and materials. Often changes made over several years create subtle, or dramatic, re-imagining of Brown’s initial vision.

Stage 33 Live is bringing River HALO and The Break Maids together for a concert this Sunday evening, April 15, at 33 Bridge Street in Bellows Falls. Doors at 6. All ages. Admission by donation. Recording for broadcast. Seating is limited to 50, plus standing room.
If you haven’t heard of Stage 33 Live, that’s no surprise. We’re new. And sporadic. And unusual. And evolving. We’re like the local love child of Ted Talks, eTown, Science Friday, BackStory, and The Little Rascals (“hey kids, let’s put on a show”). It’s a celebration of local and regional original humanities and science presentations and performances, spoken word arts, and music presented as a broadcast and web variety program, recorded during live listening events on a simple stage in a former industrial building in Bellows Falls, Vermont; a nonprofit endeavor run entirely by volunteers.
