Frost and Wordsworth: Romantic Poetry in the Light of Common Day
Wednesday May 1, 2013
7:00 PM until 9:00 PM
The poetry of Robert Frost and William Wordsworth depends heavily on the natural world and the “language really used by men.” Vermont Poet Laureate Sydney Lea explores the poets’ similarities, differences, and influence on other poets.
The lecture is a First Wednesday program sponsored by the Vermont Humanities Council. Supported by the Institute of Museum and Library Services through the Vermont Department of Libraries.
With a webcast from the high school to gear up for the NRC hearing, the breakdown on the state’s FY14 Budget cuts, and footage from Brattleboro Area Prevention Coalition, CoreArts, VA, and SIT, every second of this midweek edition is made to count.

Curbside Compost-Everything You Ever Wanted To Know

I just had the quintessential bad experience trying to return a rug to Macy’s; hard to reach customer service, no call backs, endless e-mails, and then being told the rug was not returnable because the 30 day period had expired (due to Macy’s own unavailability and failure to respond).
Because our struggling little hamlet is not without her own public relations and customer service issues, I am with the hope that it will hit a mark and make a difference for the better.
I know I said I would provide updates for those who are interested called First Tuesday. They were supposed to take place on the First Tuesday ofevery month. Sorry… I really have no excuse, but rest assured I have not been idle. I have updated the deceptions website so everything is now is in one place (movie, magazine, You Tube Channel and PegMeda write up for “Pants on Fire.” Additionally I am now setup to do an ongoing blog from this site.
Twilight Music presents International Bluegrass Music Association Banjo Player of the Year Tony Trischka and his band, plus Putney-based banjoist Bruce Stockwell at Next Stage on Saturday, May 4 at 7:30 pm.
Tony Trischka is perhaps the most influential banjo player in the roots music world. For more than 35 years, his stylings have inspired a whole generation of bluegrass and acoustic musicians, including Bela Fleck – one of his early students. Trischka has been a key figure in opening the banjo and acoustic music in general to wider influences, having shared the stage and studio with the likes of Steve Martin, David Grisman, John Denver, The Boston Pops, Jorma Kaukonen, Sam Bush, Chris Thile, Peter Rowan, Earl Scruggs and countless others. He has appeared on “Late Night with David Letterman,” Garrison Keillor’s “A Prairie Home Companion” and “Mountain Stage,” and is featured on the soundtrack of the film “Driving Miss Daisy’ and the theme song of the NPR show “Books on the Air.”

This past weekend, I went up to the White River Indie Film Festival, to see the screening of Chasing Ice. Missed it when it was here.
For those who don’t know, this film is a record of the retreat and melting of the glaciers. Twenty something cameras were set up to automatically take a picture an hour, for three years. A composite video was made to show the change to ice forms and landscapes.
The film is breathtaking, sobering, depressing…actually beyond description. The vanishing glaciers, and unprecedented melt astounded the expectations of all participants.
