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: “MyWebGrocer Lays Off 18 Vermont Employees

Doug Hoffer, do we know whether there's been a net increase in MWG jobs since that 2009 award?

Re: “City Market Hires Chef Michael Clauss

I'm impressed at how City Market managed to bring prices down on all the "coop basics" products, especially the organics. People who haven't been in in a while should check it out.

Re: “UVM Student Cited in 'Racist and Threatening Language' Case

With all the race-based violence happening around the country, I really feel for students of color at UVM. To know another student has threatened to hurt you - when you don't even know him - has to be unsettling.

Re: “Dorman & Fawcett Won't Operate Burlington Telecom After Sale


Selling to a co-op is the only way we retain influence over our area's economic development.

Co-ops' priorities are set by their members, and locals want our economy to flourish. We want the telecom to 'grow smart' in ways that will help our other local businesses - the same way City Market helps food producers.

The other bidders aren't answerable to us. They answer to owners/shareholders, whose priority is profit. In that scenario BT customers and northwestern Vermont are just inputs. Those buyers could turn around and sell BT or prioritize investing elsewhere.

Re: “At Heartbeet Farm, Adults With Disabilities Bloom

I'm so pleased to learn about this model. It shares some qualities with L'Arche, an impressive residential program started in France where adults with and without development disabilities live together.

I know a number of people who want new kinds of intentional communities for different needs and stages of life. Thanks for the inspiration.
