Noticed Around Brattleboro – Spring 2018

Shall we try another “noticed around Brattleboro?”

I’ll start us off with something I saw downtown. There’s new curbing being put in at the north entryway to Harmony Lot. This is the entry that goes under the building. The new curb replaces the former driveway-like entrance, signaling to drivers that it is officially no longer an option to enter through that way.


Representative Town Meeting 2018

RTM 2018

It’s Representative Town Meeting Day in Brattleboro. 

Representatives are filing in and getting settled, as are those of us who plan on covering today’s event. I have to say, I’m pretty tired from all the work on the new site, so I especially apologize in advance for spelling errors and such.

Usually, however, as they get into the more interesting debates of the day, this becomes less of a chore and more fun. I’m counting on it today.


I urge support for Article 13, Skatepark funding

I urge support for Article 13, Skatepark funding. The emotional arguments against a skatepark are reminiscent of arguments against dance halls in the 30’s, pool tables in the 40’s and bowling alleys in the 50’s. Kids are going to hang out somewhere. In my neighborhood, it was a 6′ plywood pool table in our basement; mom and dad upstairs; not exactly supervised, but ever-present. A skatepark is a relatively contained area more easily supervised than a dead-end dirt road in the woods.
