No Daily Newspapers Printed in Brattleboro

Brattleboro no longer prints newspapers.

Neither the Commons nor the Reformer prints their papers in Brattleboro. I found this out after a reader asked if any papers were printed in town and I asked a few questions.

For over a century The Reformer and many other papers were printed in Brattleboro. With active news and book presses running around the clock, Brattleboro was a printing town.

Northern Borders : A Vermont Made Film

The film Northern Borders which was produced and directed by Jay Craven will be screened at several venues next week. Jay Craven a Vermont filmmaker and professor at Marlboro has been traveling with the film as well.

The film will screened July 21st at 7:30pm at Next Stage in Putney, July 22nd in Townsend, (I forgot where), in Marlboro on the 23rd, and in Guilford on the 24th at the Broad Brook Grange. All shows are at 7:30, addresses of each venue can be found by googling Northen Borders film tour.

The film which premeired in Brattleboro last April used some actors from Brattleboro and was filmed on a farm there as well. I hope lots of people will show up to support Jay Craven and the others who made this film possible.

See ya at the movies!!!

I'm Going To Be On Television In A Story About Brattleboro Psychic Con Man T. P. James

I,  am  going to be on television on Thursday, at 9 PM on the travel channel. They interviewed me for a piece on Brattleboro's own Psychic Con man, T. P. James. The show is called Monumental Mysteries.

We don't have a television. I had envisioned watcing it at someone else's house. However, I am going to be in Maine, at a cabin with no electricity. So, I probably won't even get to see myself on the television. I hope someone from Brattlebor does watch it though. It is such a Brattleboro story.
