Dr. White, the veterinarian who does the spay/neuter clinics at Windham County Humane Society and in Bellows Falls (as well as all over the state!) has received a grant through VT-CAN to subsidize kitten surgeries.
For the Month of June, residents of Windham County can get kittens (6 months old or younger) spayed or neutered for only $20. Vaccinations can be done at the time of the surgery (Rabies and Distemper) for an additional $10.
Fear of Speaking Freely
Being afraid to speak, is a Civil Rights issue. Students, Teachers, Journalists and the Public should have the freedom to speak freely and to assemble, yet they do not.
Students and citizens need to know, to see and hear alternatives to mainstream media and decide for themselves what is fact and what is fiction. Important issues of fact are being intentionally omitted; key items of history are being rewritten and replaced with contrived innuendo. Few who are normally relied upon for investigation or debate, dare to stand up to these forces.

Don Francisco and doña Juana, elders of the Q’ero nation, will offer healing and Initiations of Connection in Brattleboro from June 11-16. Check the IBrattleboro calendar for specifics on group events.
This is a time when we are all experiencing great change and transition, and this is the ideal opportunity to shed what no longer serves and step into the Star that burns deep within you.
The Q’ero — don Francisco’s and doña Juana’s people, are saidto be the last direct descendants of the Inca. They historically were respected as the keepers of the knowledge, and held a place of honor at traditional gatherings and festivals. After the Spanish conquest, they remained invisible, living in small villages as high as 16,000 feet above sea level.

The Brattleboro Selectboard chose an architectural engineering firm for the Police Fire Facility project at their Tuesday meeting. The board also started a discussion about asking property owners with tax exemptions to pay something anyway for the services they receive.
Arkham fought for and received their outdoor consumption permit, the Town got a clean bill of health from auditors, the Grand List is up, and an upcoming Selectboard vacancy was officially announced. Read on for details.
I’ve been following along in the Co-op newsletter as General Manager Alex Gyori explains the ongoing woes at the Brattleboro Food Co-op. In a discussion that has ranged from construction problems brought on by the bankruptcy of their lead contractor BayButt to the viccissitudes of Malfunction Junction, Gyori has enumerated a substantial list of “challenges” that the Co-op has faced since opening the new store last summer.
Does anybody know what happened to the food stand that was at the exit 1 outlet center? Is it located somewhere else?
Bernie’s VA visit, the Selectboard’s rule suspension, Chikako Nishiyama’s eyewitness report, all supplement a SLS/Stroll-tastic edition of 5:45 Live.

WASHINGTON, June 4 – Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) today congratulated the Senate Judiciary Committee for drafting an immigration reform bill that would provide a path to citizenship for 11 million immigrants in the United States and help their children become citizens.
He also supported provisions in the measure that would strengthen border enforcement, prevent unscrupulous employers from hiring illegal workers and give legal status to foreign workers needed to keep Vermont’s dairy farms and apple orchards in business.
Sanders, however, expressed strong concern that large American corporations in the midst of very high unemployment were using immigration reform to lower wages and benefits for American workers.
