Re: “Stuck in Vermont: The Maple Guild Taps into the Big Maple Market

I visited Sweet Tree Maple a few years ago for Maplerama. Very impressive facility.

Re: “Stuck in Vermont: Celebrating Good Citizens at the Vermont Statehouse

Hi Manitsky,

Yes, I did read all of these submissions. Many of the activities required students to demonstrate knowledge of state government or the U.S. Constitution. Some invited them to explore Vermont and U.S. history. Others emphasized participation in the community. And a few invited students to express their opinions in a variety of ways, encouraging them to use their voices to advocate for their beliefs.

The instructions for that activity were: "Write a poem about America." We intentionally invited participants to interpret that in any way they chose, and they did! The submissions we received came from students all across the political spectrum, as you'll see if you pause the video and examine the entries we included here.

You can find the scorecard and all of the activities at goodcitizenvt.com.

Re: “Stuck in Vermont: Celebrating Good Citizens at the Vermont Statehouse

One of the poems by these good citizens begins: Run by the deep state. (If you pause the video, you can read it clearly.). And it gets worse. Did anyone actually read these submissions?

"She accelerates and breaks." NO, she accelerates and BRAKES! Break means broken, you slow down with your brakes.

Re: “Stuck in Vermont: Scrag Mountain Music Brings Chamber Music to Vermont

These guys are pretty incredible, but actually, chamber music *has* been in Vermont for 50+ years already (I believe 7days actually wrote a story about this.) Mary Anthony Cox Rowell, the founder of the Craftsbury Chamber Players, the head of the eartraining department at Julliard, passed away a week ago. She left behind a crazy legacy and will be sorely missed. Might be worth writing a story on.

Re: “Stuck in Vermont: Remembering Josh Bridgman

Haven't seen Josh in a long time, but remember him well from my days working behind the counter at Pure Pop Records in the early 90's. Josh knew a lot about a lot of things and was an incredible conversationalist. He introduced me to some great music.

Burlington loses another arts icon.

Re: “Stuck in Vermont: Matthew Thorsen & Diane Sullivan, Thorever

WOW. Eva. This was beyond brilliant. I think you should take Diane's suggestion and post another Matt video every month! Mattmail. I will never tire of stories about him. Never tire of seeing his amazing photographs. I want to see them all! (Hello? Archivist at UVM or Guggenheim?) Thank you for this.

Re: “Stuck in Vermont: Photographer Matthew Thorsen Gets the Last Word

Oh I'm so grateful you made this. I've read his name for years and appreciate being able to see and honor his personal thoughts and amazing humor. Very cool. Love and light. I hope Grandma was the one.

Re: “Stuck in Vermont: Photographer Matthew Thorsen Gets the Last Word

I really want to hear what he's saying, but wonder if you could turn that background music down a little. Thank you!

Re: “Stuck in Vermont: Burlington High School's Dance Team Brings the Crowd

I knew the first time I saw Medine dance in third grade that she would make her way in the dance world. That girl can dance.

Re: “Stuck in Vermont: Old Gold Makes a Big Move

Proud to say that my wife and I bought our wedding outfits at Old Gold 30+ years ago. Still have them. She was beautiful. Still is.

Re: “Stuck in Vermont: Old Gold Makes a Big Move

I still have beautiful apparel purchased at Old Gold; a fabulous black cashmere coat and an Aquasctum coat that the fine folks here in Boston seem to love. This was early '80's when I was illustrator at Magram's, my husband Head Chef at Cityside Restaurant and my daughter a BHS student. Thanks!

Re: “Glider Academy [SIV410]

Emergency services, not volunteer service, National Cadet Special Activities, not national cadet summer activities, and CAP was formed a week before pearl harbor, not a week after.

Re: “Stuck in Vermont: Burton's Donna Carpenter Mentors Samar Khan, a Cyclist from Pakistan

Oh, my mistake. Instead of the sweatshops in Pakistan, the stuff is made in the sweatshops in China, Taiwan, Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam, etc. Thanks, Eva!
