Posted on November 12, 2015 |
By Patricia Heather-Lea



On this Veterans Day, I honor the healing process of offering veterans a place to plant, to build, to work, to rest, to sweat, to sing, to eat … to reflect and to emerge into feeling held by community. Jon Turner has offered his Wild Roots Farm in Bristol for this work to happen.

On Memorial Day weekend, Jon and fellow veterans built a sweat lodge. They then used the sweat lodge. Chanting and singing helped the cleansing. Friends, family and community welcomed their emergence with food and company. The ages ranged from 6 months to 83 years.

Posted on November 12, 2015 |
By Brian Fillioe



Random thoughts and questions about the Rutland Northeast Supervisory Union contract issues (Addison Independent, Nov. 5).

Why did the union wait until now to vote to set a strike date? Could it be that sports and other activities would be disrupted and they didn’t want the public backlash against them, so it is easier to wait until the playoffs and such are over?
