Re: “Two Brothers Tavern

My friend and I had a wonderful meal at Two Brothers this weekend! We were in Middlebury for the day and were dining mid-afternoon, and the staff was really friendly and attentive. We made a meal out of an order of poutine (Hooray for vegetarian poutine!) a pretty fantastic beet, walnut, blue cheese, and arugula salad, and a couple of glasses of wine. We both agreed that it was the perfect meal for a rainy, chilly day. We'd go back again the next time we're in town without hesitation.

Re: “Burlington Woman Helps Those Hit by Coronavirus Crisis Pay Bills

@The Oracle - I've spoken with other groups about opening their own funds in other towns but as just one person running this as a volunteer, I don't have the capacity to do any more than I'm doing, unfortunately. We usually only fund projects in the Old North End and stretched to cover all of Burlington. This has been so much work.

Re: “Vermont's Largest Food Shelf Sees Surge in Demand

Thanks for mentioning the ONE Good Deed Fund! We have given out 42 grants in less than 24 hours. The need is intense. Be kind to each other, folks, and help where you can.

Re: “Home Surveillance Cams Solve Crimes — and Spark Privacy Concerns

Not to diminish the very serious privacy concerns brought up in this piece, but I am forever grateful that I can now add "turd burglar" to my every day vocab.

Re: “Low Ridership, Legal Woes and Broken Fare Boxes Bedevil Green Mountain Transit

This is interesting that the one common complaint I hear from my friends who don't have cars isn't really mentioned here. They all across the board talk about that the buses are rarely on time. It's incredibly hard to get to work and appointments when the bus you need to get there is consistently 15 or more minutes late. And if you don't know the routes, it's not easy to figure out which bus route goes where on their website. The google map link they have on the front of their site often defaults to walking directions instead of bus info - it's a mess. I'm glad they're going to be surveying folks, but I have to wonder if the people who work there actually use the buses themselves.

Re: “Burlington 101: High Schoolers Use the City and Lake Champlain as a Classroom

I had the pleasure of meeting with last semester's cohort of students and it was a total joy. It was a group of students from all over the city and all over the world, and they asked some of the best questions I've ever received about how systems of power work from kid or adults. I'm so glad to see young people getting to dig into all corners of their community!

Re: “UVM Diversity Guru Wanda Heading-Grant Makes Hard Conversations Look Easy

Dr. Heading-Grant is an amazing human being and we are so lucky to have her in VT! She's one of those people who does so much behind the scenes that doesn't necessarily get recognized, and I'm glad to see Seven Days shining a light on that. I know so many folks who say "What would Wanda do" in tough situations. Thank you for changing so many conversations, policies, and lives, Dr. Heading-Grant!
