Patchwork: Beware the ides of July

Posted on July 7, 2011 |
By Barbara Ganley



a cause of gardening fatigue.jpg

My sister-in-law is about to come down with a bad case of mid-summer gardening fatigue. I can sense it creeping up on her — and many others — as it does every year right about now, just as the birds are quieting down from their early nesting hoopla, just as the sun hits its warm stride, just as vegetable gardens in New England reach their peak.

BRISTOL — With less than 100 feet remaining in the final heat of Bristol’s 33rd annual Great Outhouse Race, it looked like the two-time reigning champions representing Snap’s Restaurant might lose to the rookies from Camp Kookamunga. Then, from somewhere deep in the hot depths of this year’s Fourth of July festivities, cousins Chris and Kevin Berry, 23 and 20, found their legs, turned on the afterburners and jetted straight through the finish line to reclaim their title as the “World Champions” for the third consecutive year.

Posted on July 7, 2011 |
By Andrew Stein



When Josefina was two weeks old, she was abandoned in a dumpster.

Guest Editorial: Quebec is a key partner in Vermont's energy future

Posted on July 7, 2011 |
By Gov. James Douglas

L-screens, old jocks, denial

Posted on July 7, 2011 |
By Karl Lindholm



I love the L-screen.

It makes me feel years younger. I am always on the lookout for ways to feel younger these days. I have a bad case of Old Jock Syndrome.

The L-screen is a simple concept: It’s netting on an aluminum frame shaped like a fat “L.” It has revolutionized batting practice in baseball.
