Let's skip the medical marijuana dispensary syndrome and simply legalize marijuana for adult use in Vermont. The Vermont legislature, like other states have outdated themselves with the implementation of marijuana dispensaries. They are not sensible solutions to set guidelines to dispense marijuana to people as patients.Moreover, it sets the terrible precedent that marijuana is best prescribed. The guidelines enacted by the legislature border on the ridiculous. Setting limits on the number of "patients" allowed to receive a license, and setting limits on the list of ailments that physicians can prescribe for their patients literally defeats the purpose of using marijuana as a medicine for a broad spectrum of people.
To the Editor of the Patriot Ledger,
I attended the demonstration at Dedham Superior Court yesterday (Not-guilty pleas in Quincy cat death case. November 22, 2013). We stood on the street in front of the courthouse in the cold rain for two hours before entering a courtroom to bear witness to a man and woman capable of a heinous act against a completely innocent living creature. I felt very sad sitting there, and a bit sick to my stomach.

Here’s a show from Montreal in 1964. One of the YouTube comments say that it is “a Radio-Canada video of the first night of Ellington's appearance in the Le Hot Jazz room in Montreal's Casa Loma, taped Apr. 20 1964.”
So this is what people were doing a few months before I was born.
Driving through the Texas panhandle en route to southern California last March, hundreds of Industrial Wind Turbines (IWTs) stretch to the horizon, a dramatic addition to an otherwise flat, uninhabited, drought seared landscape. Fast forward to Vermont, where David Blittersdorf and company want to ride roughshod over communities and towns to develop two hundred miles of pristine ridge lines yesterday. The big picture, as I see it, calls for prudence in the face of climate change hysteria, and an appreciation of place. The cons outweigh the pros in terms of wind energy in Vermont.

Brattleboro Memorial Hospital officials announced that The Trust Company of Vermont has made a pledge in the amount of $25,000 to “The Doorway to Exceptional Care” capital campaign.
With almost three out of every four patients admitted to the hospital first coming through the Emergency Department, BMH is seeking a total of $3.5 million to expand and renovate the 31-year old facility. The additional 2,500 square feet of space will increase the number of treatment rooms and enable the medical staff to provide care with greater efficiency and privacy.

This morning when I started my car, I found three one-dollar bills folded up and sitting in my cup holder. No note, no explanation, and nothing missing from the car that I could notice.
A pleasant surprise!
But more surprising, this is not the first time it has happened. Once before, I found $3.

The Town School Board discussed their public outreach efforts again on Tuesday night and found that even deciding on topics was more complicated than they'd expected. A small group of citizens attended the meeting to participate in that discussion and what emerged was that the issues raised at the first meeting, held in October at the Brattleboro Co-op, needed to be clarified and expanded on before focus topics could be decided. In short, the board might have to do more outreach before they can properly do outreach.
After the October meeting, the School Board assigned the outreach issue to a subcommittee consisting of David Schoales and Jill Stahl-Tyler who were tasked with determining an outreach process. Schoales and Stahl-Tyler looked at issues raised at the first meeting, listed and categorized them, and brought them back to the board to decide on next steps. After nearly an hour of discussion, it was decided that the subcommittee would need to be expanded and topics decided. Public meetings centered around the topics are expected to begin in January.
