Notes from the Border: Support goes both ways in Distinguished Men of Color program

Posted on November 18, 2011 | Blog Category:
By Rebecca Reimers



I was standing on the sidelines on a brisk October afternoon watching my three kids play soccer. Although I was getting progressively colder, and wishing I had chosen more comfortable footwear, the players were gradually shedding layers. My middle son, who had worn crocs for the occasion, lost a shoe more than once while kicking the ball.

Notes from the Border: On sin, forgiveness and the death penalty

Posted on October 3, 2011 | Blog Category:
By Rebecca Reimers



By coincidence, this year as the Jewish High Holidays approached I have been reading "Dead Man Walking," Sister Helen Prejean’s personal witness against the death penalty. Her account of her journey into the lives of death row inmates and their victims’ families is riveting. She quotes philosophers and criminal justice experts, cites statistics and Catholic doctrine to support her arguments for opposing the death penalty. But for me what is most timely and moving is her unrelenting focus on forgiveness, in Hebrew selichot.

Notes from the Border: The Stone Mill Dam Bridge

2011-09-13_17-32-12_492.jpg

One of my great pleasures is to go exploring the back roads whenever I have to drive here to there in Vermont. Time permitting, and if the kids are up for it, we leave the state highways behind on trips from Middlebury or Rutland or Shoreham and turn onto dirt roads instead. I haul out my trusty atlas of Vermont, having long since learned that my car’s navigational system likes to insist that I am on an “unverified route” once I get off the main-traveled roadways.

Notes from the Border: The walkability factor

Posted on November 5, 2010 | Blog Category:
By Rebecca Reimers



When Brandon’s new town plan was drafted several years ago, walkability was one of the major assets that residents cited.  Historic development of Brandon has kept the original village compact, and new housing on Mt. Pleasant and along the spoke streets radiating out from downtown also tend to be small and close together.  The downtown shopping area has all the necessities within walking distance, including a supermarket, pharmacy, hardware store, library, three banks, a post office, and pizza and Chinese take-out restaurants.

View from the Borderland: Remembering Brandon's quarrying history

Posted on April 23, 2010 | Blog Category:
By Rebecca Reimers



It seems as if Brandon’s quarrying history has been reborn with the Route 7 road work just south of town. Unlike in the 1800s, when Brandon enjoyed its heyday as a marble quarry center, the work is now being conducted with enormous excavators and front-end bucketloaders, the kind my young boys love to watch in videos. The dump trucks lined up and waiting to be loaded are size of those we see at Omya’s open house each year.

View from the Borderland: On raising an interracial family in Vermont

Posted on March 19, 2010 | Blog Category:
By Rebecca Reimers



“Where are your kids from?”

When you are a pale-skinned mom with two brown-skinned children, you get asked this question on a surprisingly frequent basis in casual conversations in all kinds of settings. In adoption circles, we refer to these people as “supermarket strangers,” people who don’t know us or our children but ask rather invasive and personal questions without much preamble.

View from the Borderland: The nutritional problem with school lunch

Posted on February 26, 2010 | Blog Category:
By Rebecca Reimers



Neshobe Community School reached a new watermark of sorts this school year, when more than 50 percent of the students qualified for free or reduced-price lunch. This sobering news came on the heels of the news that Rutland County, of which Brandon is the northernmost town, has one of the highest rates of childhood obesity and Type II diabetes in the State. In a report released in February 2009, Essex and Franklin Counties actually are in worse shape, being both poor and more rural. The Rutland Partnership for Health collaborative, financed by the James T.

View from the Borderland: Why Leicester should send its students to Neshobe

Posted on February 15, 2010 | Blog Category:
By Rebecca Reimers



After two go-rounds, Leicester is still a wallflower at the school merger dance, having been turned down by Sudbury and most recently by Salisbury. It’s time to invite Leicester’s 60 students and all of the town’s taxpayers to come join us at Neshobe Community School in Brandon. We certainly have the room.
