AO GLass how super super this have you stay in the area. I LOVE my AO Glass in the three pendant lights I have in my kitchen.

Re: “Obituary: Frederick Grant Hill, 1935-2018, South Burlington

Oh No Fred.. I did not even know you were sick...
You and Sandy Milens were my photo heroes when I first came to town as a preschool teacher in 1971 and taught your son, Tristram, at the Children's school, here in Burlington. I was fascinated as you put 17 lights or more or less on one ski boot, from Rossignol. took polaroids and used a huge 4x5 camera for a product shot.
My favorite time with you was when you got that marvelous 270 degree camera, with a lens like the eye of a cow, and took a huge group photo of the citizens of Burlington on the south side of City hall like the photo taken 100 years before that. Sen Leahy, being tall, is right in the middle of the photo. My friends and I snuck in on the far left, after I tried to help you get all of the people into place, and in the view! I treasure that photo today, as it hangs on my wall. I am still using my cameras professionally...and somewhere in my collection is a family portrait of Tristram and his young family. Peace my good friend. Thank you for all the advice and friendship you gave to me. And if someone from your family is reading this...please tell me when the memorial service is.
my best Carolyn Bates

Re: “Development Opponents Go Back to Court Over Burlington Mall

Thank you John Franco and company as stated in the above comment for keeping a watch on this. Miro did a handshake agreement with Sinex to give him the 14 stories and $22 mil BEFORE Sinex bought the mall. And then jammed it through city hall. Its been a very robust public process. Too bad Miro did this backwards. Redevelopment of the mall was a good idea. Please support Franco et al. Or we will really have a mess on our hands.
