Kyras death online.jpg

VERGENNES — There is nothing nice about “Garrow” — an independent thriller/noir-style feature film based on the true events of Robert Garrow’s life. Nope, nothing at all. And there’s nothing nice about the role Vergennes actor Kyra Bradford plays either.

Fair warning: “Kyra doesn’t make it out of the movie alive,” said her mom, Sasha Bradford; who likes to set clear expectations for anyone interested in coming to the Vermont premiere at the Middlebury Marquis Theater on March 6.

Pet of the week: The enthusiastic goat

Posted on February 25, 2019 |
By Lydia Visser



pet of the week 2 18.jpg

Now here is a thing of which our family boasts;

That we now own the liveliest of goats.

When she’s feeling sprite and in need of fun,

She jumps to her feet and the show has begun!

 

With a flip to the left and a hop to the right;

A rear straight up then all four in flight.

Again she does it without hesitation,

To gain elevation and try aviation.

 

In this - of course - she doesn’t succeed;

So she makes up for that with overall speed.
