Re: “Café Shelburne

Exceptional flavors
I brought my parents here for Christmas Eve -- a bit of a risk since I had not come beforehand to vet its new incarnation. Fortunately, we were all well pleased! My folks, who've eaten around the world, pronounced our dinner well worth the money. We started with a fish stew and a winter endive salad; my entree was an eight-grain 'risotto,' and we finished with apple tart. Throughout, the ingredients, flavors and textures were clear, full, and balanced. Nothing was gimmicky, it was all just extremely well prepared. The room is attractive and cozy, and the servers were lovely. We left feeling both nourished and cosseted. Food: 5 Ambiance: 4 Service: 4

Re: “'So Preventable:' State Report Finds Errors Led to Grenon's Death

The problems go even further up the chain. Over half of our national budget goes to the military (but not to treating military service people and vets well enough). If we shifted one percent of that money to mental-health services it would make a world of difference.

Re: “My Friends Are Having Babies, and I Want to Talk Climate Change

I dunno, Rev. I'm not a big fan of encouraging people to give unsolicited advice. Sometimes the 'cleanest' way to bring up things that are worrying us is just to name the emotions we're feeling. And with a topic as loaded as this it's the best hope of not coming off as judgy.

Hard to read, but important. My heart goes out to all involved in this.

Re: “Hosts Are Wary of Proposed Burlington Regs on Airbnb-Type Rentals

For a balanced picture you should have interviewed some of the thousands of people who struggle to find affordable rents around here. Housing is a basic need. Our zoning limits how much of it can be built in residential neighborhoods (which keeps the value of those properties high); we can't do that and at the same time let the owners of those homes turn them into businesses. If people don't want to rent to long-term tenants, sell the properties to someone who will.

Re: “Molly Gray Announces Bid to Become Lieutenant Governor of Vermont

"Political novice" accurately describes someone with little or no experience in elected office, so where's the bias in it, Forestgimp?

Re: “Amid Backlash, Group Cancels Burlington Talk on Transgender 'Agenda'

I don't understand how some people let fear twist them so far. The so-called "trans agenda" looks a lot like mine: live life, pay the bills, do the chores, enjoy your family and friends, get a creemee now and then.

Re: “Montpelier's Down Home Kitchen Will Close End of Year

Down Home is a wonderfully warm place, for the food and even more for the heart that the owner and staff bring.

Thanks to them all for gracing us. Sending well-wishes for whatever's next.
