A recent LTE from Putney resident Elan Moses contained too much misinformation to be useful (Governor's misguided views on gun control).
While his point that Vermont’s lack of gun legislation opens the door to many abuses, his suggestions for curing this were naïve and disingenuous.
“It does not mean we do not make efforts to make it harder to acquire semi-automatic weapons here in
Vermont”. I don’t think he has any idea what a Semi-Automatic firearm really is. (Unfortunately, this attitude is widespread in America. The very word “semi-automatic” has a high scare factor despite the fact that the
overwhelming majority of hunting rifles used in the USA today are semi-automatic).
Because, in fact, I do have relevant input and I'd like to share it with them ASAP. What is the best way in this town to get contact information to be able to connect with all of the members of a committee (by phone, or email, or whatever medium works for them)?

Ready for your weekend concert? Here’s one you are either going to love or hate.
There isn’t much middle ground with Dread Zeppelin. You either enjoy an Elvis impersonator singing Zeppelin songs with a reggae twist, or you do not.
I do. This band cracks me up. To my ear they do excellent, inventive cover songs with the right mix of love and parody. Mixing Heartbreaker with Heartbreak Hotel is genius.

Strolling of the Heifers Weekend is fast approaching, and the organization is still in urgent need of volunteers to help make it happen.
Stroll Weekend was recently named one of America’s “Top 10 Summer Festivals” by travel-oriented website Livability.com. As always, Stroll organizers say, it will draw tens of thousands of people from far and wide to the area during the weekend of June 7-9.
“We can’t pull it off without a lot of time and effort contributed by volunteers,” said Vick Friedman, the event’s volunteer coordinator, “but it’s very rewarding — everyone who comes to our events is in a great mood and they really appreciate all the things our volunteers do.”
