Steve Carmichael, Howard Weiss-Tisman, Jonny Sheehan and Jeremy Holch return to Pleasant Valley Brewing in Saxtons River for night of original music and unique covers.
Saxtons River is lovely this time of year and you don’t even have to leave Windham County (what I’m saying is it’s not that far from Bratt!)
Music is free and starts at 8:00. Good food and beer.
Brattleboro Memorial Hospital today announced that George Pierce Terwilliger, MD, has been appointed Site Director for its Emergency Department.
Dr. Terwilliger has been practicing emergency medicine at Cheshire Medical Center in Keene, New Hampshire since 2002. He comes to BMH through a unique professional services contract with Dartmouth Hitchcock Clinic, by which Harneet Sethi, MD, serves as Program Medical Director for Emergency Medicine at Cheshire Medical Center and BMH.
“Our arrangement with Dartmouth Hitchcock Clinic and Cheshire Medical Center allows BMH to share in the expertise of physicians like Dr. Terwilliger to meet the existing need in Brattleboro,” says Kathleen McGraw, MD, Chief Medical Officer at BMH.
Prior to his current post, Terwilliger had been a member of the ED staff at BMH for two years and spent 10 years practicing emergency medicine at the Gifford Center in Randolph, Vermont. He also has seven years’ experience as Medical Director of a family medicine practice in Chelsea, Vermont.
Soon, Brattleboro will be joining Toronto, Canada, Clearwater, FL, and San Diego, CA as well as many other towns, by posting signs in public parking lots that remind the public of the dangers of how hot a car can quickly get, even on a mild day. In Brattleboro, they will be smaller stickers, strategically positioned near the coin slots on the town parking kiosks in all parking lots and garages. This effort can save lives and reduce the possibility of tragic animal suffering.
This is a story I submitted to iBrattleboro a couple years ago and it got a thousand or so views which is pretty good. And since the cat in question, Friskey, is turning 14 today, i thought it might be appropriate to resubmit it
When we got Friskey from the Windham County Humane Society as a 3 month old back in July of ’99, she was to be an indoor cat.
Cats who go out live an average of 4 years; cats who stay in live 16. Not much wiggle room for debate there.

I was no longer homeless, and I had a job. Compared with day labor pushing carts through the garment district, driving a cab seemed easy… and by my standards it paid well.
This evening I had started with two quick fares, each less than five dollars on the meter. Tonight, the weather was pleasant, but having left off my passengers in Little Italy, I now found myself stuck in a single-lane jam on a narrow street. There was another empty cab behind me, so if anyone were to hail a taxi, I would be first in line for the fare. Or so I thought.
that box truck shattered a cross beam and tore trim off of the covered bridge over the West River at Dummerston.
Police are looking for the driver of the truck, according to the report. The bridge is said to be safe for travel, despite the damage.

Puma Quispe, in association with Ed Liebfried of Divine Within, LLC (Guilford, VT) invite you to join us for a journey of initiation in Peru.
This is not the typical Sacred Valley journey. You’ll experience the “Hatun Karpay” over a 10-day period, in traditional sacred locations in Cusco, the Sacred Valley, Machu Picchu and climaxing with our great initiation at Apu Ausangate – perhaps the most sacred mountain in the Andean tradition.
Puma is a master altomesayok, trained traditionally yet fluent in English and a master tour guide.
