In case it is of interest, this is a letter to the editor (LTE) of mine submitted to vtdigger this morning in response to a recently published LTE regarding the name of “Vermont Public” written by Paul Stone (https://vtdigger.org/letters_to_editor/please-change-the-new-vermont-public-name/), fyi:
Vermont Public Disconnect Is Quite Obvious:
Since the merger between Vermont PBS and VPR and the subsequent name change, because it most definitely describes and means nothing whatsoever, I have been referring to the organization as “Vermont Public Whatever.”
The Brattleboro Selectboard adopted a resolution recognizing freedom from domestic violence as a human right. They heard a presentation and had a discussion about the impact and effects of domestic violence in the community, and talked about making changes to end it. Men were encouraged to get involved.
The board was also zoom-bombed a few times, which hadn’t happened in a while. They bought police equipment, heard about changes to bike regulations, and got more questions about EMS in Brattleboro.
The Brattleboro Selectboard will purchase almost $24,000 worth of 9mm pistols at their next regular meeting.
The board will also discuss a domestic violence resolution, extend a loan to Metalarts, begin modification of the Code of Ordinances regarding bicycles, and more. You can bring up other items not on the agenda during public participation.
I like to listen to Vt Public Radio. I live downtown in a brick building, and I can’t get good reception.
Does anybody have an old FM radio that uses an external antenna?
What’s the safest party in town? The one on the radio!

We’re suspending (most of) our regular programming to play festive dance tunes provided by eleven of your favorite WVEW DJs. And it’s all commercial-free and local!
