Ask-a-Baha'i

In the spirit of “Ask-a-Cop” and “Ask-a Realtor”, our local Baha’i community has decided to launch its own series, called “Ask-a-Baha’i”.

Although many have heard of the Baha’i Faith, few know much about the Faith's history and teachings.

Through “Ask-a-Baha’i”, we want to create a space for people to ask questions from the privacy and convenience of their homes or mobile devices.

Camp Waubanong Makes Big Changes

Camp Waubanong is undergoing significant changes, and as a result it will not be operating this summer. Camp Waubanong is currently working with the Vermont Wilderness School (VWS) to craft a newer and better administrative structure, ensuring that the camp will thrive for many years into the future. The plan is to transfer stewardship of the camp and its facilities to VWS by the end of 2016.

The Vermont Wilderness School (VWS), based in West Brattleboro, has been providing nature-based mentoring programs for children and adults for fifteen years.

VWS's approach is a natural fit with Camp Waubanong's mission, and they share a dedication to keeping the camp's tuition affordable.

Hear Ye - May Day at the Statehouse

     May Day at the Statehouse!   For a number of years now there has been an ever-growing public event celebrating May Day on the Statehouse lawn.  I went last year and was among 600 or so people having a very stimulating day. This year more than a thousand are expected.   Everyone is invited and urged to join in.  There is a big parade through the streets of Montpelier, speakers, a childrens tent, free lunch for all and a long line of organizations that are actively working and fighting for a just and sustainable future for Vermont.  It's the largest annual gathering of activists in the state.  And its a lot of fun.  Activities run from noon to 4 PM.  Its a great place to meet people who are doing things.

Two Simple Questions

I understand that last night the DRB was to vote on opening the Harmony Lot tunnel to auto traffic again.  Does anybody know the result of that vote?

What were the final results of the "Safe and Secure" poll you did Chris? 

Thanks

Slow Medicine Discussion at the River Garden

Thursday, April 30 at 6:30 p.m.

Robert H. Gibson River Garden, 157 Main Street, Brattleboro VT

Michael Finkelstein, MD, also known as the "Slow Medicine Doctor," will present his approach to healthy living at the Robert H. Gibson River Garden in downtown Brattleboro on Thursday, April 30 at 6:30 p.m.

The session, entitled "Slow Living is Healthy Living," is sponsored by Strolling of the Heifers. Finkelstein will be joined by Orly Munzing, founder and executive director of Strolling of the Heifers, and Linda McInerney, founder and artistic director of Old Deerfield Productions.

Finkelstein teaches that most health challenges are the result of an imbalance in our bodies and lives, and that most quick-fix solutions actually exacerbate these imbalances.

PAYT Mailing

PAYT mailing came today with a colorful glossy insert. That can't be cheap. The "instructions" say that each trash barrel can only weigh 40 lbs. or it won't be picked up.How does one determine exactly what their trash barrel weighs? The bags come in 15 and 32 gallon bags but each tenant will be throwing out different things which will weigh different amounts.

So, do we all invest in "trash barrel scales" to make sure we are in compliance with yet another rule? Should each person have their very own trash barrel - perhaps color coordinated with the yellow and purple PAYT bags? Oh, wait..that might make it too difficult for the drivers to easily identify or perhaps would confuse those neighbors who are actively asserting peer pressure to make sure we're all in line.
