Re: “Bike for the Barn Farm Tour

The weather forecast is calling for 80 degrees and partly sunny! You could make a full day of it by picking blueberries or raspberries, hiking Camel's Hump, or swimming in one of Huntington's many swimming holes.

Re: “Vermont Fresh Network Hard Cider Tasting & Annual Forum

Not that the Shelburne Farms website isn't awesome - but it doesn't actually have much information on this event. For ticket info. got to www.vermontfresh.net and click on the Annual Forum Dinner on the far right.

Thanks for mentioning our event!

Re: “Fred Wiseman

A fully executed agreement obtained by The Critic by a Freedom of Information Act request said that Wiseman agreed to being placed on paid leave starting in the spring 2013 semester. His pay will be cut in half, but he will continue to receive health insurance benefits and insurance coverage. He will remain on paid leave until the end of the 2013-2014 year, at which time he will retire.

Under the agreement, Wiseman also won’t be further disciplined for allegedly violating the college’s sexual harassment policy.

“The college will not impose any discipline on Professor Wiseman as a result of the Policy 311 complaints filed in the Spring 2012 semester,” the agreement states.

The agreement was signed by Wiseman, JSC President Murphy, Russell Mills of the Faculty Federation for the VSC and VSC Vice President and General Counselor William J. Reedy. It was written as “a resolution of the disciplinary process related to Policy 311 complaints against Professor Wiseman.”

And yet... on the Johnson State College we see this:

Fred Wiseman
Professor
Willey Library & Learning Center
802-635-1340
Frederick.Wiseman@jsc.edu

SO he did not retire, he was on paid administrative leave, and then allowed back on campus of Johnson State College to keep peddling his revisionist "Abenaki" "expertise"? Hmmmmmmm I smell something rotten in Vermont.

Re: “Fred Wiseman

JSC Humanities Professor Fred Wiseman will stop teaching classes at Johnson State College at the end of the fall 2012 semester, according to information released by JSC Dean of Administration Sharron Scott on Friday, Sept. 14. Responding to a Basement Medicine request under Vermont’s Public Records Law for release of documents pertaining to any severance agreement between the college and Wiseman, who has been at the center of a controversy involving allegations of sexual harassment, the College provided a copy of an agreement signed prior to the beginning of the fall semester. Requests for three other documents filed at the same time, including the complete Policy 311 report delivered to President Murphy’s office in May, were denied, citing permitted exemptions under the Public Records Law. An official separation agreement between Wiseman, JSC, the VSC and the VSC Faculty Federation was dated Aug. 1 “as a resolution of the disciplinary process” related to Policy 311 complaints against Professor Wiseman.

Again, Why is this "professor" continuing to claim he is a professor at Johnson State College since late 2012? Is this not yet another distortion, he himself is putting out there, and in fact he is not?: Just like the 4 Alburg Indians in the Civil War were NOT Abenakis, but actually Mohawks from Akwesasne - just like Antoine Phillips Sr is NOT in that tin type he claims to have, but rather it is Antoine Jr. of Essex, Vt in the early 1900's; and so on, and so on, I find this professor lacks the ability to be truthful about who he is, where he comes from, and what he is perpetuating. It is peddling distortions about the Abenakis, based on falsehoods. If this is not "classy" my apologies but to perpetuate something that is absoluting sickening to the majority of legitimate Abenakis living in the States, knowing how Mr. Wiseman has moved around the State of Vt. peddling his revisionist "abenaki" history, well it just puts salt to the old wounds.

He most certainly is not a Johnson State College professor any longer and for him to imply that he still is, is an absolute matter of usual behavior coming from him. I would hold anything he says or implies about anything, with that same grain of salt.

Re: “'Durang Bang'

I went with a few friends and none of us laughed even once. Although some other audience members laughed occasionally, we found it quite disappointing. Maybe it's because we never saw the originals (since the play is six different spoofs of other plays)? The actors/actresses did a good job with their various roles, it just wasn't funny.

Re: “'Durang Bang'

it's great to go to the theater and nearly die laughing. Lost Nation Theater's production of DURANG BANG is out to lunch hilarious. Don't miss it. Margo Whitcomb's direction is perfectly warped and the cast live in the loony DURANG world of fun-house parody, non-sequiturs and three stoogalistic comedy like it's their home planet. A treat to see comic virtuosity live onstage. Go. You'll be tickled. You'll be gasping.

Re: “'Girl in the Other Room'

Whenever I watch a play or movie that stays with me days after seeing it, I feel that it has risen above the norm. The Girl in the Other Room is one of those performances. It successfully bought me back to my childhood and my relationship with my own mother at that time. It's ability to do this and leave me mulling over it's message was, for me, the real strength of this play. The use of Vicks was a stroke of genius because it surely connects all of us to our childhoods. If that statement intrigues you, I strongly urge you to experience this story for yourself. If you're like me, you'll laugh, you'll cry, and you'll hear some enjoyable and meaningful music all while supporting Alzheimer's research.

Re: “'Girl in the Other Room'

The Girl in the other room is a moving story about a real life situation with real life obstacles. Alzheimer’s steal’s the chance for a daughter to get answers to questions she doesn’t even know she has until it is too late. Guilt and regret are the murky waters Alora (a moving performance by Wendy Maquera) finds herself wading through.
The Music throughout the entire performance is both composed and played by a local Artist, Carol Ann Jones, and adds a very real and touching quality to the story.
Throughout the performance I was moved to tears (a few times), found myself laughing, holding my breath, and even thinking about my own regrets and guilt.
The elephant in the room is of course Alzheimer’s and how it steals the opportunity to get the resolve you so desperately need, and the affect’s it has on all connected to those afflicted by this horrific disease.
Sarah Jo Willey’s brilliant Story is both entertaining and educational. She reminds us to seize the moment to chase away your regrets, after all, regrets are not for the living~
Excellent performance by all!!! Proceeds of this performance go to the Alzheimer’s research fund! I am proud to have contributed to this cause! Let’s win this fight!
