Re: “WTF: Questions From the Road

We are the keepers of the sing in Buells Gore. The kids ages 7-14 did the work of making the sing to warn motorcycles to slow down and be aware. The longest stretch with out an accident was 28 days (you know the 2 weeks of rain this summer ) other than that it is EVERY weekend sometimes twice a day.We who live on the MT really wish we didn't have to call 911 every weekend its gotten to the point dispatch knows our # and just asks what turn do they need to get too.

Re: “WTF: What's With the Headless Woman Mural on Pine Street?

interruptingstarfish,

Thanks for your comment/email. We do read every single comment on the site, but email is often a faster way to reach us. I just put in that correction, and we appreciate you letting us know!

Re: “WTF: What's With the Headless Woman Mural on Pine Street?

D'oh! Didn't realize that was the case. I'll make sure to send my thoughts to Liz directly. Is her email really dan@sevendaysvt.com? And feel free to delete my posts if you'd like.

Corrections and clarifications are always good, but one of the benefits of 7Days is you can address them directly to a story's author by clicking on the byline. That way they can be seen, apprised, and (if called for) an update submitted almost immediately. Comments down here may or may not be read, but they aren't fed live to the person who can fix a piece.

Re: “WTF: What's With the Headless Woman Mural on Pine Street?

"For Beautify Earth's inaugural mural in Vermont, they worked with B Corporation, a Vermont nonprofit that accredits companies for practicing sustainability and social responsibility."

I think you are referring to B Lab, a non-profit based in Philadelphia that certifies B Corporations. (http://www.bcorporation.net/) It's confusing because there are many VT companies certified as B Corps through this third party (King Arthur Flour, Seventh Generation, B+J, Cabot, etc.), and there is legislation passed in the state of VT to allow companies to incorporate as Benefit Corporations (not the same thing). The point I'm making is that the non-profit to which I believe you are referring is in fact based in PA and called B Lab, not B Corporation. They are the organization which certifies B Corps as well as advocates for the Benefit Corporation status within various Secretary of State's offices. Clear as the stormy skies?

Re: “WTF: Are There Catamounts in Vermont?

Got a glimpse of one on rte 4 in Rutland this past Friday 10/17/14. We were passing through in a car just onto the highway so there was no time to get a picture. Tan body about 5 feet long with a long tail. ( about 4 ft) did not get a look at the head and face but know what I saw

WTF is up with the graveyard between I-89 and the railroad between the waterbury and middlesex exits?

Re: “WTF: Is Mike Myers Now a Vermonter?

I believe I can speak for the state as a whole. This is a family based state that would welcome any decent people to our state famous or not. I can assure you that if in fact it is true that Mike Myers did move to our beautiful state; that people here have enough morals and respect to give him his privacy. I think it's awesome that Vermont brings in the awesome people of this country. As I said before it doesn't matter if they are famous or the average person. People have enough dignity in our state to leave people to them selves. So before you judge to harshly look at the reality.

Re: “WTF: Are There Catamounts in Vermont?

We saw one in Wilmington while on vacation, in the backyard of our rental house. We were in chimney hill, August 4, 2014.

Re: “WTF: Is Mike Myers Now a Vermonter?

Hmmmm, I'd venture a guess that all the facts in the story are true. And that just the nonfacts aren't.

Re: “WTF: Is Mike Myers Now a Vermonter?

The next big question anyone considering moving to the area will surely ask "is there intelligent life in Vermont? " thanks to 7 Days...the answer will be a resounding NO. Way to welcome an epic comic, but with a humorless waste of words.

Re: “WTF: Is Mike Myers Now a Vermonter?

Lots of people move to VT and purchase houses without the need to publicly announce the news. Was it really worth publishing the whispers and rumors of Mr. Myers' business and affairs - who is (according to your article) a new community member? Way to keep it classy Seven Days....
