Krista Oarcea, founder of Evening Star, and her partner Mark Morey, will share about end of life and after death care options that are loving and legal.
The choice of by-passing the funeral industry and staying in the home is slowly becoming more popular across the country as an economical and relational alternative. It brings peace to many folks to know that we can make choices about our own death that reflects the character and values of how we live our lives.
$12 trillion in banker bailouts, billions more in quantitative easing that now will continue monthly. Constant war and military interventions, yet people keep voting Republican or Democrat as if this is the answer. Our sons and daughters are being sacrificed. FOR WHAT? For freedom and democracy? Do you really think so?
The film below is well-researched and less than 45 minutes long. If you review it on its factual merits versus the propaganda that has been drilled into your head since birth, perhaps an awakening will occur.
The Brattleboro Rotary Club is raising money to help upgrade the radio station KILI, a non-profit radio station broadcasting to the Lakota people on the Pine Ridge, Cheyenne River, and Rosebud Indian Reservations, part of the Great Sioux Nation in South Dakota.
On Sunday, March 3, 2013, from 4-8PM at the New England Youth Theatre, the Brattleboro Rotary Club will be sponsoring the fourth annual “International Film & Food Festival,” with proceeds benefiting KILI which serves 30,000 people on the three reservations and seeks to preserve Native American culture and instill pride in the peoples’ unique heritage.

Pittsburgh, PA Political Corruption Trial – When Will We Do That In Vermont?
If it is illegal for the State of Vermont to give taxpayer money to Vermont Public Radio, UVM, VLCT, VTdigger,
and Vermont Law School knowing that they will hold debates that include some candidates and not others,
or write articles that specifically disparage voters from voting for some candidates, (acting as illegal and unregistered political action committees funded by taxpayer dollars) then that means that state taxpayer dollars are being used to promote the political campaign of Governor Peter Shumlin, while not equally promoting some of the other candidates.
is the stage name of Gregg Gillis. He’s not quite a DJ, but he throws a mean party with the help of his laptop.
Gillis is an expert assembler, taking tiny samples of familiar songs and mashing them together into something unique and danceable. He likes to loop familiar snippets of songs from multiple genres and eras. It’s a music lovers’ trivia game to identify all the samples. Was that Heart? Tone Loc? Led Zeppelin? The Jacksons? All of them. How about Nirvana mixed with Kansas over a dance beat?
It’s not for everyone, but I love this stuff. And as I have been requested to fill in for your February host this week, I offer up a Girl Talk show.
Twilight Music presents French-Algerian acoustic guitarist, singer and composer Pierre Bensusan at Hooker-Dunham Theater & Gallery on Thursday, February 28 at 7:30 pm. If World Music is music that pays tribute to the spirit of a collection of human beings through distinct rhythms, traditional instruments and harmonic colors, Pierre Bensusan can be recognized as one of the most eloquent and diverse world musicians of our time.
I’m running for the three year seat because it takes that long to learn how to do the job with at least moderate effectiveness. I’ve lived long enough to know the value of experience, practice and training. If I do a good job and the voters want me back I will remain on the board for additional terms. My experience is especially valuable at this point because with three new people coming on there is a possibility that among the five member Selectboard we could have an aggregate experience of only 4 years, or less than one year per person.
Brattleboro Citizens Breakfast – Video
February 15, 2013
Next year’s Town School budget does not include a position for someone to help elementary teachers, students, and staff with the various tasks and challenges involved with technology.
Things like learning and running programs, exploring the web, taking and editing pictures, making slide shows, playlists, videos, virtual spaces, interactive stories, comic books, digital posters, blogs, navigating the cloud, connecting devices, and platforms etc..etc. These essentials of a well-rounded education are vanishing.
Did you see the article in the Reformer that VTEL has identified an alternative site for a tower near the Village of Newfane? What do you think is going to happen next? NIMBY action or is this going to happen?
