Re: “Vermont Huts Association Launches Statewide System of Trailside Cabins

"The one thing that I was most surprised about, though: lack of backcountry accommodations.

That is, by definition, what makes it the "backcountry". And those of us who like such places do have "accommodations", typically I use a tent.

Re: “Vermont Huts Association Launches Statewide System of Trailside Cabins

The AMC White Mountain huts are expensive because they provide food and other amenities - they're really hostels rather than huts. That's not what is being considered here, I imagine.

NH has plenty of non-staffed or barely-staffed huts that are cheap, like these would be, run by several difference groups - Dartmouth Outing Club, Randolph Mountain Club, the National Forest itself, and probably others.

Re: “Vermont Huts Association Launches Statewide System of Trailside Cabins

An interesting idea. There are many shelters on the LT but typically not that close to roads lest they become "party spots". I am not a big fan of the hut system in the White Mountains mostly because they are expensive for the average person. Let's see how this works out.

Re: “Katharine Montstream Hides Paintings Around Burlington

Becky, that was my friend DJ Barry and I had not seen his story. We were thinking along the same lines, both hoping to get more art out there!

Re: “Katharine Montstream Hides Paintings Around Burlington

OMG...I had no idea about this! I saw a small painting tucked away along the waterfront and didn't take it as I was sure someone had accidentally left it and would come back for it!

Re: “Katharine Montstream Hides Paintings Around Burlington

Way to go to our local artists!! I saw this exact concept on WCAX this past summer too, from another local artist who does this all over VT hiding his artwork as a pay it forward type of initiative... Ive been dying to find one for the last several months!

Great. Was just thinking, if only Burlington had more House music.

Re: “Jensen Beach Receives Vermont Book Award

I offer congratulations to Mr. Beach on his win, and I DON'T wish to diminish the well-deserved award. But as I watched his interview on WCAX a couple evenings ago I seemed to remember the hype about the nominees this year and the huge boon that it spoke to about the rise of women authors in the state. Of the eight nominees, seven were women... Guess who won? In the Rutland Herald was this passage on June 17th, 2017: "Of the fact that seven of eight finalists are women, [VCFA President Tom] Greene added: 'That really speaks to the work being done by women writers here in Vermont, and I think thats exciting as well.' ...It doesn't mean that a woman should have necessarily won. I also don't really advocate any type of "affirmative action"-type consideration while adjudicating what constitutes good literature. But I sure do think it's interesting in a time of increased introspection about gender equality and parity, that the only male nominee should take the prize. Looking at the jury panel, it does not seem that it was stacked with men. Psychological bias? During his WCAX interview, Beach was visibly stumped when the question was posed to him, "Why do you think that people liked your book?" He didn't know. Humility? or true shock? I can see that Mr.Beach's book was reviewed in this paper. (May 11, 2016) Were the works of the other nominees provided equal review coverage prior to the award? Just curious...

Re: “Comedian Krish Mohan on Mental Illness, Politics and Sports

Dude, Dan, you didn't challenge this guy when he mentioned OXYCODONE as a pharmaceutical people use for mental illness?

Re: “What Feminism Can Speak To: Katha Pollitt and Janell Hobson

Hey kids of Middlebury get out there and stop these people from spreading their hate speech. If these women had their way none of you would be alive today, you would have been aborted. These two women are haters of the human race and must be stopped. It's time to stand up and shut down this form of evil before their words can cause you all harm. The killing of defenseless babies is not a value you should allow to spread through society. Please stop them from spewing their hate speech. Shut them down.

They only do this for the 'cool' kids. Don't get your hopes up.

Re: “Seven Things to Know About Shrinedom 2017

This is not true, it was not the Shriner's who didn't pay, but the promoter. This was to benefit the Shriner's and I know for a fact they lost out too. The Shriner's are a great group who are being unfairly targeted.
