This Was Sent To Me Because I'm a Candidate; But You Need To Read It, Too. O.K.? You'll Read It? Please?

I have always been opposed to private-for-profit out-of-state prisons; and I received this in my e-mail box today; and you need to read it, too.  O.K.?  You'll read it?  Please?

Vermont prisoners have been locked up and shipped away for too long:

Bring them home! It's the Vermont way.

Beloved Boston Mayor Dies

Tom Menino, Boston's longest standing mayor has died from cancer. He was a wonderful, compassionate mayor and man who loved his city and the people who lived in it. He was a strong urban leader and felt that before a city could address the needs and wants of tourism the well being of it's citizens had to be addressed.

I lived in Boston for 38 years and he was a rare bird in City Hall. Not perfect by any means but ethical, level headed, smart. He didn't back down and he always belived that Boston didn't need to prove anything to anyone. There was seldom a community event that he wasn't at, mingling, playing with the kids, asking people what they needed; how their lives were.

Bread From Fresh Local Grains Now Available At The Coop!

I was really excited to learn that Green Mountain Flour has started delivering bread to the Brattleboro Food Coop. Green Mountain Flour's flour (is that redundant?) has been available at the coop for a while now, but not their bread.

It will be really nice not to have to go all the way up to Windsor to get great bread made from flour that was grown locally and milled just in time for each bake.
