I took my young sons up to the Retreat Tower this past Tuesday -- it was their first visit. I've never been inside, but have heard that it is opened to the public now & then. Does anyone know if there are fixed dates that it's open, or where one can find out when it will be open? The boys are dying to have a look inside and climb to the top for a view of the area.
I am looking for ideas for someone to rake my yard and do some light gardening,
Thanks, we are located downtown. Robin
I am looking for 2 cords of dry firewod. I'm a bit late this year and I know that most of the dry wood is gone. Anyone know anyone who has some?
I am having a yard sale this weekend (Saturday)on Western Avenue, household stuff. Is anyone in the Western Avenue/Tree Streets neighborhood having one also? I am wondering if we could combine them into a multi-family sale to improve traffic? Thanks.
I'm about to swap out our old car for a slightly less old car, and the newer one is a 5-speed manual transmission. Driving manual doesn't bother me, but my manual driving was also done long ago in a flat state - Florida. Hills are a bit new to me, and I'd like some advice.
I am located in Brattleboro and looking for someone who can do relatively simple handyman type work. Right now I need shades hung throughout my house-17 of them. Thanks!
I've a weeklong visitor coming and need ideas of where to take an older, low key guy with walking problems. Ideas please!?

With everything digital, what do the kids sell when they need some quick cash nowadays?
In the olden days of, say, the 1990s, we had physical CD’s, albums, books and such that cold be sold relatively easily for cash. The quick cash would often help us young folk survive a few more days until payday.
Increasingly, everything is on hard drives. What do young people do now when they need a few dollars to smooth their cash flow issues?
I just bought a GPS unit. Since I recently learned that ornaments hanging from the windshield mirror are illegal, as they obstruct the driver's vision, I am wondering if there are any restrictions to the use of a GPS monitor and how it is mounted. I need to be able to read it, but I don't need a ticket.
Liz Johndrow of the Nicaragua Pueblo Project is giving a presentation at the Brattleboro Library on Tuesday and she is in need of a projector to show slides and a video from her computer. Do you have one, or do you know of a person or organization that might have one we can borrow for the evening?
Can anyone identify the species of this beautiful multi-trunked tree in the Common?
It is approximately aligned with #38 Park Place and one of the crosswalks and, if you are looking into the Common from the sidewalk, it is straight back from the Memorial Tree Plaque.
Where can I get a bale or two of organic straw nearby?
Are any Town Meeting representatives surveying their constituents? Are any of the district reps planning on holding meetings to discuss the revised budget?
what do you do when you've got the end-of-the-world blues? You know: I ice is melting, our pollinators are dying, the sea is rising, the West Coast is burning, the East Coast is losing it’s beach front houses, fracking is depleting water supplies in America's driest areas, landslides, sink holes, tornadoes, typhoons, earthquakes, fake clouds, drones, economy crashing, oil slicks, tsunamis, big floods, big droughts, nuclear pollution, air pollution, noise pollution, all this makes me sick!…need I say more? what-what-what do you do when this gets you down?
Hi fellow ibrattleboro-ians,
Does anyone know if there ia any kind of tenant rights organization or advocacy program available to low income residents in Brattleboro? I'm having an issue in my current apartment regarding a tenant smoking in a porch area that is the only access to my apartment. I was told that the building I live in was a smoke free building including common areas and despite the fact that the porch is technically outside this tenant's cigarette smoke comes in my windows and every time I enter and exit my home I have to walk through a cloud of smoke. I have serious medical issues that are being made worse by this constant exposure to second hand smoke.
I'm looking for some legal advice as to how address this issue. Thanks.
