Re: “Subaru's Champion Team Races Under the Radar — in Vermont

Thanks, Charles! As Lance Smith explained to me, the dirt roads in Vermont may seem a natural setting for rally racing, the difficulty is finding any where there are no houses and can be closed for several hours at a time while the race is underway. This explains why much of rally racing occurs on old logging roads in unpopulated locations out west.

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: “A Reporter Tries Future Fit and Lives to Write About It

Hi there Oracle. Just saw your comment. Seven Days' advertising and editorial staff operate independently of each other. The writers pitching the stories, the editors assigning them and the proofreaders checking them before they go to press often don't know whether a featured business is or has been an advertiser. We often write about new businesses when they open, but don't assign stories because a business is advertising, and we never let any of the subjects of our stories review the content before it's published. The sales team doesn't get to see the stories in advance, either. We assume that readers understand this (especially given the content of some of our reviews!).

In the announcement of our new series, "Hooked: Stories and solutions from Vermont's opioid crisis," we did note the three underwriters that contributed funds for that specific project. Though they're supporting that content, they have no influence over it. We'll disclose that at the end of every story in the series.

Re: “Passhole or Persecuted? Snowboarder Decries Lifetime Ban From Stowe Mountain

If they banned every asshole from the ski resorts, they'd go out of business on the first day, the trees would grow back and we'd lose our New Jersey accents.

Re: “What’s the Safest Way to Consume Legal Cannabis? Experts Weigh In

Indeed, cannabis has many health promoting benefits which is not widely unknown due to its ridiculous class one designation and lack of study. Juicing cannabis leaves is reported to relieve many health conditions. I have often settled an asthma attack w a hit off a pipe. It's time to restore the status of this amazing plant as it once was, revered and utilized for many ills.

Not to mention the also ridiculous disparity between alcohol vs cannabis by the establishment in regulation: the former known to be exceedingly dangerous, yet easily obtained, and the cause of untold trauma and tragedy in America; the latter usually benign if not benefic, yet its use severely and harshly penalized.

Re: “At a Vermont Brain Bank, Researchers Wrap Their Heads Around PTSD

I really appreciated this article. As someone w different kinds of brain trauma, only recently diagnosed but originating in part from childhood, I am eager to learn more about the topic. I'm glad to know this resource is so close by
Thank you!

Re: “A Reporter Tries Future Fit and Lives to Write About It

I was prepared even eager to conclude that this place should be called Flim Flam Fit . A place for people with too much time and money, eager to part with the latter to prove how special they are . I'm not sure if I've fully changed my mind but it certainly is a humorous and well written article .

Industry professionals are held at a higher standard than the general public. To ignore this, ignores the responsibilities you take on when you accept things like pro deals. This clown needs to re-think his relationship to the industry if he wants to be taken seriously.

Pottymouth!! There are kids around- he needs to go to Anger Management , if he has that problem. If he just enjoys yelling at staff because they do not get to yell back, lifetime ban is appropriate.

Re: “Passhole or Persecuted? Snowboarder Decries Lifetime Ban From Stowe Mountain

Most of the town knows Georges is a huge jerk. Buried in the the last few paragraphs of this article, your "white washing" hardly describes the language or multiple incidents this guy instigated and perpetuated. What is your angle Walsh? Smearing Stowe Mountain Resort? Nice job backing the town fool.

Flipper, if you think the ski area is setting ridiculous regulations, just don't give them your money. You don't need any oversight, just take away enough profit and they'll listen.

I know of Georges and ride with him at Jay Peak. He is pleasant and polite and does not seem to me to be an "irritant". But then again the atmosphere at Jay is a bit different than Stowe.

Re: “Passhole or Persecuted? Snowboarder Decries Lifetime Ban From Stowe Mountain

I think he got a raw deal. Just because someone has odd jobs and swore when he was angry shouldnt be a reason to constitute a full ban like this! They have acted very overzealous and airline like here and I think what this really should remind us of is that ski areas may need some regulations set upon them! They are getting too big and powerful and can just make up their own rules on a whim, passing judgement how ever they wish. That cannot be right.

Re: “Passhole or Persecuted? Snowboarder Decries Lifetime Ban From Stowe Mountain

Yikes. Sounds like he was unprepared for the conditions & didn't learn his lesson from the initial frostbite experience. When it's windy, chairlift speed is impacted; it's not all about you, Dionne. As a longtime Stowe local (20+ years), I get why folks have been leery about the recent transition in ownership. But this guy needs to understand that you get a lot further with respectful communication as opposed to setting the tone with f-bombs right off the bat. You are an adult (at least chronologically)- act like one.

Funny how he doesn't go into depth regarding his past history as an "irritant" in Stowe... or bring up the fact that the core shop, nor the mainstream ones, in Stowe do not carry the product he reps. He's only telling part of the story here.

You made your bed, Dionne. Quit yer bitchin'...

There should be a disclaimer that this business is a Seven Days advertiser. The same goes for any business that is covered or reviewed by Seven Days.

Re: “A Reporter Tries Future Fit and Lives to Write About It

I can't tell if you prefer your treadmill, or appreciate it despite its apparent inferiority as a workout machine, or actually have a much darker understanding of "unconditional love" than I do... Either way, great read! Future FIt sounds intensely effective.

Re: “Passhole or Persecuted? Snowboarder Decries Lifetime Ban From Stowe Mountain

I love how a guy in his fifties with a part-time job and long history of no employment manages to ski all the time, travel to Australia, and own a home. Maybe he can educate the rest of us on his magical moneyless lifestyle? That may be a clue into why he is so strongly despised by so many.

You're lucky you still have a job. Must be a libtard company. A company run by normal people would have a liability like you long gone!
