Re: “Two Brothers Tavern

My friend and I had a wonderful meal at Two Brothers this weekend! We were in Middlebury for the day and were dining mid-afternoon, and the staff was really friendly and attentive. We made a meal out of an order of poutine (Hooray for vegetarian poutine!) a pretty fantastic beet, walnut, blue cheese, and arugula salad, and a couple of glasses of wine. We both agreed that it was the perfect meal for a rainy, chilly day. We'd go back again the next time we're in town without hesitation.

Oh no! Karen was an absolutely amazing human being on so many levels. What a tremendous loss. My deepest condolences to her family.

Re: “In the Final Chapter, Keven's Story Becomes Kay's

Thank you, Molly Walsh, for sharing Kay's story. And in case she reads these comments or someone reads them to her, Kay, I'm so heartened to read that you have been able to be your true self at last, and that almost everyone around you has been supportive. You never know how many people will be moved to live authentically after reading about your experience. May your final days be ones of peace.

Re: “Election Day Brings High Turnout — and Voter Relief

I voted at the Sustainability Academy (ward 3) late morning and the poll workers were fantastic and really well organized. The line was moving quickly. And, as usual, the bake sale was awesome. Well done everyone!

Re: “Shinjuku Station Offers Takeout Sushi in Burlington

Jennifer Blair, I think it's all at 260 North St (right on the corner of North and N Winooski). I'm so glad to have their sushi back! I ran into Peter at the cart on Church St and when he told me they were opening a location in the ONE, I literally jumped up and down with joy.

Re: “Burlington Schools Employees’ Racism Complaints Prompt Action

That pervasive culture of racism has been there for years and years. Every single person of color I know who has worked for BSD has has the same experience that the three people who filed the complaint have had. It doesn't matter what Mark Porter thought was being taken out of context, a "pervasive culture of racism" found by an independent investigator is incredibly serious. It needs to be treated like the emergency it is.

Re: “Burlington's Top Cop, Brandon del Pozo, Aims to Rewrite Policing

I appreciate this thorough and thoughtful article on the chief. I would have loved to have heard comments from the local Black Lives Matters organizers, though, and the Champlain Area NAACP. Maybe they can weigh in?
