Re: “Longtime Burlington Jewelers Doug and Marty French Call It a Career

The Frenches made wedding rings for us and for our children. I lost my original ring and we went back to them to make me a replacement just like the original one from 30 years prior.

Still wearing the bracelet I received for my 20th birthday in 1974. Good luck and a safe journey!

Re: “Blood, Sweat and Shears: This Benson Sheep Farm Produces an Unusual Crop

They are injecting them with disease in order for them to produce antibodies? Sounds like it.

Re: “Becoming Christine: Transgender CEO Hallquist Prepares to Go to Work As a Woman

Needed to re-read this story after Ms. Hallquist's victory in the Democratic primary. In yesterday's news, there was a story about an 11-year-old transgender girl in Oklahoma whose mother had to get a restraining order to protect her from parents at the chid's school threatening violent harm. I wonder if people in Oklahoma will become aware of Ms. Hallquist and yesterday's election. I'm hoping the young transgender girl and her mother will learn of this story and draw encouragement from it.

What a load of crap: wearing a wig and pretending to be a woman. Disgusting. You do not have to play being a woman, you just can be yourself. This guy is a total fraud.

Re: “Lykos Makes Menswear for a Rugged Lifestyle

To answer your question, The Oracle: The clothes likely will not be made in the Dominican Republic. The Lykos founders used that clothing manufacturer to produce their prototypes but are currently in search of a U.S. textile mill to make their products.

Re: “Lykos Makes Menswear for a Rugged Lifestyle

What do the workers in the Dominican Republic get paid to make the clothes?

Re: “Bridal Brawls: The Old Lantern Fights Its Neighbors Over Noise

Here's another tip - if you want to have a wedding venue, don't try to impose it on an existing community where it has been a very quiet place for decades, where people who move in come for the quiet and privacy, where there are countless retired and seniors with half-million dollar homes who have been there for many years and do not want your noise and your traffic imposing on them. And if you are stupid enough to impose your wedding venue on them, be prepared to expect outrage and rejection from the neighbors, if not lawsuits. And don't stick your wedding venue in a little community that has protective covenants against noise disturbances, because the neighbors will enforce those covenants. There are and are not appropriate sites for these things. Wedding venues succeed when the owners have the common sense to not put them in the wrong place to begin with.

Re: “A Beloved Menswear Salesman Looks Beyond Macy's

What a great person! Sonam helped me buy business suits, overcoats and suit coats, shirts, and ties...you name it. Always has a great attitude and goes out of his way for the shopper. A gentleman in his heart who sent me to a great tailor up on North Avenue.

Re: “A Beloved Menswear Salesman Looks Beyond Macy's

I want to echo the thoughts expressed about Sonam Chophel. I have been assisted by Sonam on numerous occassions over the years and he is knowledgeable, courteous, and patient. He has a good sense of humor and clearly enjoys working with people. He is a gentlemen and I wish him the best.

Re: “Mallsoleum? Vermont's Largest Retail Complex Faces an Uncertain Future

Someone didnt do their research. Finard defaulted on his loan intentionally, with plans to buy it back once it was again for sale. He knew that the property value was well below what he was paying, so he decided not to pay and buy it back for less.

Re: “Mallsoleum? Vermont's Largest Retail Complex Faces an Uncertain Future

"55-acre indoor arcade"? That must be a typo.
