WASHINGTON — U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., has launched his sixth annual State of the Union essay contest, calling upon Vermont’s high school students to address what they view as the major issues facing the United States.
BRANDON — Mei Mei Brown is a sucker for cats. A lifelong lover of felines, she is also the driving force behind the Brandon Feral Cat Assistance Program, now celebrating its 10th anniversary.
Thanks to Brown’s diligence and love for the animal, what was once a big problem in Brandon is now under control. Over the last decade, 166 feral, or wild, cats have been trapped, spayed or neutered, and released or adopted.
“Yes, I am the crazy cat lady,” Brown joked in an interview last week.
MONTPELIER — The Agency of Natural Resources has announced the launch of its new website, anr.vermont.gov.
As Thanksgiving approaches I remember Michel Mahé, the restaurateur who passed away last summer, for his kindness and generosity.
Although I did not know him personally, I met him on several Thanksgiving mornings at the Black Sheep Bistro where I would pick up a Thanksgiving dinner he prepared to deliver to a local family. Michel would insist that the meal go to a family with young children and was especially proud of the marshmallow Jell-O ambrosia he lovingly included for their discerning taste.
“When I use a word,” Humpty Dumpty said in rather a scornful tone, “it means just what I choose it to mean — nothing more nor less.”
“The question is,” said Alice, “whether you can make words mean so many different things.”
