I need an occasional handyperson to do some light jobs such as changing smoke detector batteries, overhead light bulbs, etc. – i.e., mainly things that require “ladder work” for a small apartment in Brattleboro. I’d pay per job as needed, but it’s not a job for ANGI (Angie’s List) signup. Any suggestions?
I’ve driven a golf cart in a community like this and it seemed like a great pollution-free way to get around. Are golf carts allowed on the streets of Brattleboro? Should they be? I was struck by this quote in the article:
“Peachtree City, Ga., has roughly 13,000 households and some 11,000 registered golf carts.”
The SelectBoard meeting scheduled for Tue, Sep. 19 promises to be of great significance … Details regarding attendance are here: https://www.brattleboro.org/
The Sep. 5 SelectBoard meeting recessed to Sep. 7 due to technical difficulties. Near the end of the meeting which lasted beyond 11:00pm SelectBoard member Elizabeth “McLoughlin motioned to have a discussion of the transition of care and intergovernmental coordination, interagency coordination by the town staff in recognition of consultation with the town attorney.” “McLoughlin discussed rescinding her motion. The motion was not rescinded” and the “motion passed, as presented. 3-2 (Goodnow and Reichsman opposed)” Case, Quipp and McLoughlin in favor. Minutes pp. 10-11 in the Backup Materials
Has anyone had problems with the audio on the BCTV channels (both of them) over the last several days? I’ve contacted both BCTV and Comcast with no response from either. Have been unable to get any TV audio on BCTV for several days, but do get it on all other TV channels. Happens both on “live” stuff and on replays via the BCTV schedules. Not intermittent problems – constant silence. Am I the only one? (OK online, but that’s not convenient; lots of important stuff going on, hate to miss it.)
Twitter won’t load. One site says it’s down, one says it’s not. Anyone else hear what’s up?
This statement was by Patrick Moreland at the Select Board meeting of Oct 11:
“There will be a rough draft of the report in early November, then they will be back with a final report in December.”
Someone on social media wrote that you could turn in your voting ballot which was mailed to you and “get a real ballot” on Nov. 8, 2022 in Vermont.
So, for the first time I opened the ballot that was mailed to me, and I was shocked. I was outraged. Where is my right to vote on a secret ballot?
I just finished watching a long 4-part documentary entitled “Bobby Kennedy for President” (Worth watching). Bobby was murdered. His brother JFK was murdered. Civil Rights leader Martin Luther King was also murdered.
It causes me to wonder: what kind of America would we be living in today if these leaders were allowed to live?
Arguing with VTEL, who takes a scary branch down,
what defines their right-of-way?
This thing is hanging in mid air.
To Vermont Secretary of State Jim Condos:
There appears to be a serious question of ballot fraud in the printing of the Nov. 8, 2022 general election ballot in Vermont. See attached Burlington sample ballot.
The names of candidates, including myself, Ms. Cris Ericson, for U.S. Senator are printed smaller than names of candidates for other offices even though there are three empty spaces in the bottom of the
middle column so there is no reason to print those names smaller.
Anyone know where the tag sales are this weekend? There no longer seems to be a central location where they are posted. Am I missing something?
Ever notice how Vermont is it’s own mirror image?
Information is never lost, not even in a black hole (as per Hawking) seems to be the consensus among all or nearly all astro-physicists.
Can someone knowledgeable please explain what they mean by “information?”
If that proposition is true, does it mean that, in principle, It is possible to learn what happened at any moment in the past, by gathering all the bits of information, and analyzing how they fit together?
I really do hope to read responses to this question.
There’s a green neon sign that says MARKETPLACE, and below and towards the back the River Garden sign remains.
What’s going on with this space? I assume it closed last year when the pandemic hit, but I haven’t heard any news about it for quite awhile.
Why don’t we task the U.S. Navy with cleaning up the oceans?
The program is paid for, they have boats and people, and they are out in the oceans of the world all the time.
Okay, so you want some naval defense. Fine. If not 100%, why not 50%, or 10% of their assignment be ocean clean-up?
I’m watching a movie that takes place over a matter of years. The actors’ appearance, especially the facial hair, never changes !
I’ve come to expect RoboCalls. I usually get 3 or four per day. Some days I get none.
However, today I keep getting them. I estimate I’ve received at least twenty, so far.
I just noticed my favorite pair of jeans has a three-inch tear in the backside, and I want the sleeves of a favorite t-shirt removed. Kat is unwilling, and there seems to be no other place in town, instead being referred to Keene or Massachusetts.
Any help out there?
Hi, all. Has anyone else had a VW Jetta with electrical problems? ie, the headlights come on by themselves, or the daytime running lights, or the plate light, or the seat belt warning comes on when you are buckled in. How did you resolve it, where did you take the car for repair? What did you pay? Were you satisfied with the repair work? Thanks.
In 2020 it went up around Valentine’s day and stayed lit at night until well into autumn.
This year it went up again around Valentine’s Day and continues to be lit up now at the end of March.
Holiday decorations are fine, but a few weeks after the event the decorations become blight.
