New York Times Personal Health columnist Jane Brody will give a free lecture on issues of aging on Tuesday, April 16, at 5:30PM at Higbie Auditorium on the campus of Kurn Hattin Homes for Children in Westminster, VT. Brody’s appearance is the first of a four-speaker series sponsored by Westminster Cares in celebration of its 25th-year anniversary. The series, titled “Speaking of Aging,” explores key issues in aging such as physical and mental health, financial well-being, maintaining social connections, and end-of-life issues.
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.

Dear friends and correspondents on iBrattleboro,
Hopefully you will have seen some of my earlier posts in support of keeping the River Garden as a public space. I am working with a group of people now who share the intention of putting together a new, independent non-profit entity, to run the River Garden for the benefit of the people of Brattleboro and the surrounding areas.
I wish to thank those of you who voted at Representative Town Meeting for the eleventh-hour successful resolution I introduced, in which RTM strongly urges BaBB to keep the River Garden open to the public by choosing an organizational plan that will allow for that.

This one is just pure fun. Even though it is a reunion performance, the band is revved up and tight.
This is also a bit of departure from the previous 4 concerts I submitted this month. Those were rock to punk. This one is Ska.
Martin Langeveld had a very interesting on Thursday March 28, 2013.
He started by taking BABB and the Reformer to task:
The board of Building a Better Brattleboro is proceeding with a request-for-proposals process for the River Garden without holding meetings for public input. “It’s time for Brattleboro to cut its losses and move on,” writes the Reformer editorial board with respect to the River Garden, urging the town to “figure out a way to add the River Garden back to its grand list and move on.”
Parenting does not come with a handbook but Parenting Teens Wisely does. In an effort to promote positive communications between parents, caregivers and teens, the Brattleboro Area Prevention
Coalition (BAPC) is offering the Parenting Teens Wisely workshop, on Tuesday, April 9 from 6:00pm to 9:00pm at the Putney Central School Library.
This free three hour workshop teaches parents skills and techniques to help them better understand and deal with children ages 10-19. Participants will learn how to problem-solve and encourage cooperation with their teen and learn to develop fair and effective discipline skills.
