Join us at Brooks Memorial Library at 7 pm on Monday, February 11th as William Forchion reads from his book Sacred & Sacrosanct: a collection of poems! Wiliam is a Director, Producer, Poet, Clown, Acrobat, Stuntman, Father, Friend, Minister, Coach, Writer, and Teacher, all in one package. His works have been called “resonant” and “insightful.” In addition to reading, he will offer insight into his #ApoemAday project, where he has been writing and sharing a poem every day for a year via Twitter.
The Brattleboro Selectboard helped Groundworks take a step forward with a shelter/campus project. Their approval came after a passionate plea by a next door neighbor to preserve the building.
The meeting seemed a bit like an enjoyable poetry reading at times, with ideas and words flowing back and forth. Everyone caught the groove, and they wrapped up with lots of time to settle in for the State off the Union address.

Emerald ash borer is here. Infestation has been verified 20 miles away. It is a killer; now is the time to vaccinate any ash trees you want to save, because by the time you find the pretty green insect on your tree, or notice the damage, it will be too late. Infested trees die from the top of the crown down; by the time you can see from the ground that you have damage, the tree will be too far gone to save.
How do I know if I have ash trees?

Ever since Trump was elected president, people have been casting aspersions at Russia for their alleged interference in that election. With the attempted coup now underway in Venezuela, we have an example of how the United States does interference — when they don’t like the result of another country’s elections, they just destabilize the government and install their own guy. In the case of Venezuela, the U.S. has been trying to take out their government since at least the time of Hugo Chavez in the early 2000s, going so far as to pull a military maneuver in which Chavez was briefly kidnapped. Chavez survived that attempt. Now it’s Maduro’s turn.
