Yankee What Next - Part Deux

In my post, “Yankee, What Next?” I recommended an op-ed by Lissa Weinmann , entitled “Federal legislation key to jobs-creating, swift VY clean-up”

This has been reprinted in Green Energy Times, and can be read here.

It begins:

“While some celebrate and some lament news of Entergy’s decision to close the Vermont Yankee nuclear power plant, we all need to work together to assure that decontamination begins immediately in order to preserve and create hundreds of jobs and assure the safe storage of highly radioactive waste that will certainly remain at the site for decades to come.”

Windham Regional Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (WRVOAD)

The Windham Regional Commission (WRC) is pleased to announce that it is forming a local VOAD to serve the Windham region. For the past two years, the Southeastern Vermont Irene Long Term Recovery Committee (SEVT LTRC) has been working steadily to help Windham County residents who were left with unmet needs after Tropical Storm Irene. Although most of those who fell victim to the floods received help from FEMA Individual Assistance, there remained almost 1500 cases in our region with unmet needs. Disaster relief donations of over $300,000 (with United Way of Windham County as fiscal agent) have been judiciously distributed by the LTRC, along with state funds and hundreds of hours of volunteer labor. With the resources expended, the LTRC will be “going dormant” on August 31, 2013.

Bicycling Injury in Guilford

My son was hit by a vehicle Wednesday 8-23-13 in Guilford near Paul's Road. He was headed to work on his bicycle. He was transported to BMH ER.

I am interested in communicating with anyone who happened to witness or pass by the area and saw the vehicle hit my son and throw him on the ground causing large abrasions.

We have protection for pedestrians and bicyclers in the form of the "Safe Passage Law" in Vermont which was originally featured here on ibrattleboro on June 20, 2010.

We have seen too many injuries and deaths in Windham County in the past year caused by vehicles, to pedestrians and bikers.

Thank you for your help and comments.

At Spanish Camp, children acquire Spanish through songs, movement, games, and stories. Part of the day is structured Spanish time where children are able to hear 100% comprehensible Spanish in a way that maximizes acquisition. At other times, we play games, make art, cook, and explore the stream, forest, and gardens around us incorporating Spanish into all activities.

Dan Foster first tested positive for Lyme disease 22 years ago. This talk (a repeat of his June 18th talk, due to popular demand!) is about Dan’s odyssey with a super bacteria that he believes he will soon be rid of.

Though he was treated promptly after his tick bite bull’s eye rash, he has had a variety of symptoms over the last 20+ years, but was able to manage them all pretty well until last year.
