Passing of Joe Crompton

Joe Crompton

Longtime friend Joe Crompton passed away under the full moon.

You know Joe if you shopped at the Co-op. He was the sausage-making meat expert in the butcher area.

You know Joe if you worked at the Co-op. He kept a constant eye on management and was a leading advocate for the union. He spent many a year trying to get better situations for employees, which paid off in recent years with a succesful union vote.

Noticed Around Brattleboro – Summer 2018

Time for another “Noticed Around Brattleboro,” where little things about the town are noticed and recorded for posterity. This edition starts off with some special nature-loving observations:

– Nude man walking.  On Tuesday afternoon I was on my way to the train station to pick up a visitor. Coming down Canal Street I caught sight of a naked man walking up the hill. He was probably in his late 60’s, had a beard, and was walking happily, confidently, and totally naked.
