Re: “Exploring Vermont's New State Park: Taconic Mountains Ramble

The zen gardens were always a favorite spot to go during my time at Castleton. Even got to watch it snowing on mother's day from Zion Major one year. It's a gorgeous spot, I'm so glad it's be preserved as a state park!

Re: “The Parmelee Post: Plotting Return to Sea, Technology Park Whales Invest Heavily in Fossil Fuels

A comment that offshore wind impacts whales? The infrasound from waves at sea are a million times stronger than what comes from a wind farm. But that does no harm to whales, who communicate with powerful infrasound, like elephants do. Do you know what can do terrible harm to whales? The sound blasts used all over the world to explore for deep sea oil and gas reserves. These blasts, set off by huge explosions, can permanently destroy the hearing of whales and dolphins. And that renders them "blind" since they see by sound.

This kind of article is the reason I only pick up Seven Days for use in starting the woodstove.

Re: “The Parmelee Post: Plotting Return to Sea, Technology Park Whales Invest Heavily in Fossil Fuels

This is kind of sad, and not funny. Whales communicate by infrasound. The PSB's proposed rule dismisses infrasound and low frequency noise as issues with big wind turbines, and they couldn't be more wrong. Offshore wind will impact whales. Onshore wind turbines make people sick with infrasound. While the PSB's rules are a step in the right direction, they are not adequate to protect people from the full frequencies of the rules. Making fun of this issue is not helpful. I find most of your posts humorous, but in this case it raises a lot of issues that are not funny.

Re: “The Many Faces of Mr. Guyette [SIV488]

Loved working with you Mr. Guyette, and my kids enjoyed your art class. I'm honored to have a Charlie Guyette version of "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" in my school library. This was a joy to see how much you are enjoying your well-deserved retirement. Hope to see you around town ~

Re: “Why Does Seven Days Allow Anonymous Commenting?

I applaud Seven Days for allowing anonymous comments. In an era where angry protesters think it is their right to picket someone's home if they hear something they don't like, it allows people to voice their opinion without fear of reprisal. Can anonymous posting be misused or abused? Of course. But Seven Days can delete anything that's not civil. We already have enough censorship from media outlets like Vermont Digger.

Have been wanting to visit this new park for months. Dan's description might get me off my duff, finally.

Re: “What Is That White Dome on a Hill Overlooking St. Albans?

It's mind control, our mind and body's emit Alfa type frequencys , using microwave technology , they can lock on to us because the energy everyone emits is different , they are just now breaking the coad that ables them to read our minds or thoughts. But they have been able to send signals out for a very long time. There's a reason they are set up in a trifecta . This is a technology that they basically stole from Tesla. And they have been experimenting with it for as long as most of us have been alive.

Re: “What Is That White Dome on a Hill Overlooking St. Albans?

I like how they say to go check it out but fail to mention the road and lands leading to it are private property with. I trespassing signs on it. The FAA has an easement to go to the dome but they are the only ones. Stay out!

I hope the fix the road. It's almost impassable! Seems as though there has been no maintenance since it was decommissioned.

Re: “What Is That White Dome on a Hill Overlooking St. Albans?

The house on 104 was never part of the base, as it never came down that far. All the land was above where I89 is now. The NWRDC land butted up to it, and our trails ran along the chain link perimeter fence on the south end of the base. Mom and Dad rented apts to many stationed there thru Dad's death in 1975, and I managed the apts starting in 1969. Went to school with kids from the base from 1962-1974.One of those stationed there became like family renting from us, and is still a dear friend today.

Re: “What Is That White Dome on a Hill Overlooking St. Albans?

Along RT104 there is a an abanone house in the field. It is totally feneed in and overgrown with rather large power poles. Is this related to the air base in some way?
It seems to be directly under the dome on the hill.

Very short on information. What exactly did the winner pitch? How is this going to make the world a better place?

Re: “The Parmelee Post: Proposal for Teachers to Receive Primary Care From School Nurses Could Save State Millions

(OKay I get it) ... however when humor is no longer mocking reality but instead is reflecting it then we have one hell of a problem that mere stick-in-the-ass removal will not help.
