Are you paying enough, not enough, or none at all? You decide if a break is needed. Seems Vermont has plenty of tax to go around as compared to the rest of the country.
Tho not a breakfast person, I enjoyed several visits for coffee & to join friends who were breakfasting at a nice cafe on Elliot St called The Restless Rooster. Just heard they lost their lease & are closing. Thought that might be picked up on ibrattleboro, but not seen anything. Facts needed. But the place was cheerful and pleasant, & the times I was there seemed quite active with happy customers.

I was just shocked when I called Brattleboro Taxi to get a recorded message saying they were no longer operating! This is a huge blow to those of us who can no longer drive and have used the taxi to get to appointments and to errands.

PUBLISHING AND PRINTING IN BRATTLEBORO TODAY
Write Action has joined the Friends of Brooks Memorial Library and the Brattleboro Historical Society in researching and promoting Brattleboro’s past heritage and present status as a “book town.” This current collaboration is focused on both the history of, and identifying and presenting today’s publishing and printing businesses as an important and vibrant part of our community.
The Brattleboro publishing and printing collaborative launched its initiative in 2015 with a public meeting that generated ideas about ways to promote the town’s book history and reputation. Subsequent projects have included the preparation of annotated bibliography about relevant holdings at the Brooks Memorial Library, and a public presentation about the Stephen Daye Press.
Additionally, the groups above have joined forces with the Brattleboro Literary Festival, Marlboro College, 118 Elliot and others to better highlight the rich history of the printed word in Brattleboro and environs for locals and visitors alike. The “Peoples, Places and History of the Written Word in Brattleboro, Vermont” project, which was submitted to the National Endowment for the Humanities for a matching grant opportunity last month, aims to create a strong community focused on words in and around Brattleboro. The collaborative research, public events, and tours envisioned to be created by the Project will enable a more rooted connection to the history and places we share as a community today and stimulate increased tourism to the area.
If you are interested in learning more about the current project, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
