Re: “New Silo Murals Link Jeffersonville's Past and Future

We traveled from Waterbury to Jeffersonville to see the Silos.....while we were there an elderly couple drove in. They asked how far had we driven and I asked them the same. They had driven from Bomoseen. They were as amazed as we were of the beauty and the artistry and talent the silos showed. Jeffersonville residents should certainly thank them....A job well done.

The E-9 crew does an amazing job creating a real world crisis. The company is run by former Marines who care about veterans and this country. Great hire State of Vermont.

Re: “'A Vermont Romance' Makes Film History

Interestingly, the ending paragraph does come with an answer. Jerry Hunt continued to live and raise a family in Derby Line, with many family members still living in the Northeast Kingdom. - Don Hunt

Re: “A Saint Mike's Student Hosts Trashy Exhibit

Really cool and a great visual way to tell a story that so many of us wish we didn't have to think about. I wonder if Judson will start cutting back on his trash based on this experiment?We are attempting zero waste this year so food packaging is a huge part of what we avoid in order to produce very little trash each month. Once you start eliminating disposables, it's hard to go back. ~Meredith (

Re: “Leland Kinsey, Still 'Galvanized' by Poetry

Sadie, What a wonderful article about an outstanding Vermont poet! Of course I am somewhat biased, being his publisher, but you really brought out the best in your review. Thank you so much.

This anthology sounds like a wonderful project. I can't wait to buy a copy and read it. This sounds like the type of endeavor the CCS was created for.

Re: “A 'Wildlife Social' Comes to Norwich

The tides are turning on the 100+ year old paradigm of so-called "Wildlife Management" by government agencies. While necessary to curb mass species extinction across the continent in the 1920s, the infiltration of monied interests to "manage" the public's wildlife for narrow interests must change again lest it do unto itself what it set out to rectify.

Re: “A 'Wildlife Social' Comes to Norwich

The leg-hold trap as essentially torture for animals. When the jaws of the trap slam shut, they inflict excruciating pain. To that pain, add fear, bleeding , freezing temperatures, snow, rain, the danger of prey animals eating the trapped animal alive, the inability to go care for her young if the trapped animal happens to be a mother, and more. In many cases, the trapped animal may chew off his/her own paws to escape. The trappers call this "wring off." How cute!

Trappers like to purport their sport is "highly" regulated. Vermont law says traps must be checked every 24 hours, but it is a self-policed, self-regulated, self-enforced law. It is impossible for Fish & Wildlife to enforce. In addition, the trappers do not have to report what animals they torture/trap/kill. Since a steel jaw leg-hold trap captures any unfortunate creature who steps into it, endangered animals, protected species, dogs, cats, birds, and all species are caught, but never reported to F&W. Hence, F&W suffers a dearth of statistics. So much for "highly" regulated! (Just does this self-reporting work with the IRS?)

"Tradition" gets added to "conservation" as the excuses trappers use for continuing to abuse animals in traps for sport. Hello! The year is 2016. I'm a grandparent and a third-generation Vermonter. I say it is time to stop this horrid, inhumane activity and stop hiding behind "conservation" and "tradition" to justify it. We know better!

Re: “A 'Wildlife Social' Comes to Norwich

For far too long conservation has been a euphemism co-opted by the hunting- and trapping community to justify their cruel actions. Trapping/hunting is neither conservation nor sport. It is torture, as Mr. Aberth rightly states in the article above. Kudos to Protect Our Wildlife for their work, and for spreading the message of compassionate conservation. Fish and Wildlife could take a lesson or two from them, learn to rely on scientific knowledge, and actually start to live up to its stated mission.

Re: “A 'Wildlife Social' Comes to Norwich

Recent public protest from the majority of NH residents spoken loudly against the proposed bobcat trapping/hunting and also the publicized concern from residents of Shoreham, VT because of reckless and cruel coyote killings makes this event necessary and timely! What a marvelous opportunity for the Vermont and New Hampshire /Dartmouth community to have a chance to learn not only how essential predators and wildlife are to the ecosystem but also to gain awareness how we as citizens can do more as animal stewards, learn about sustainable and non-lethal methods ,and how to become advocates against animal and wildlife cruelty or the barbaric-savagery of trapping. Looking forward to an incredible panel of presenters and the feature film; Medicine of the Wolf and meeting the Protect Our Wildlife representatives.
