Formal objection to proposed park and ride in Putney

As a resident of Putney, abutter to properties adjacent to the proposed park and ride, town energy coordinator and chair of the Putney Energy Committee, I have the following concerns;

1. An 83 spot park and ride is just too large for our town, other area park and rides are less than half this size. Why supersize it?
This large project is not needed in Putney, considering that there is adequate parking in town and the surrounding lots.
2. The park and ride project has had no study performed that would justify such a large project. Terms such as “if you build it they will come” are not a substitute for a real study.

Cheryl Wheeler and The Nields at Next Stage on Friday, September 20

Next Stage Arts Project and Twilight Music present folk singer, songwriter and comedienne extraordinaire Cheryl Wheeler plus folk/rock sister duo The Nields in concert on Friday, September 20 at 7:30 pm at Next Stage, 15 Kimball Hill in Putney, VT.

It has always seemed as if there were two Cheryl Wheelers, with fans of the New England songwriter relishing watching the two tussle for control of the microphone. There is poet-Cheryl, writer of some of the prettiest, most alluring and intelligent ballads on the modern folk scene. And there is her evil twin, comic-Cheryl, a militant trend defier and savagely funny social critic. As the poet and comic forces join, taking their separate turns and melding into the same artistic vision, Wheeler emerges as a delightful, gifted and openhearted performer.

Herbal Tincture Workshop in Putney

Learn how to make herbal tinctures using the percolation method. Percolation is a fast way to make high quality tinctures out of dried herbs. This process is more technical than maceration but well worth the effort. The class will include a complete demonstration of the process with hands on opportunities and you will leave with detailed instructions for repeating this process at home with all of your favorite herbs. Participants will also take home a tincture.

Saturday September 21st, 2-4pm at Medicine for the People (125 Main St, Putney)

Participants will have the opportunity to make their own 'perc cone' at the end of the class. Simply bring an empty, large glass Pellegrino water bottle (or one of similar shape, it can be any color glass), with the label removed and save the top.

Led by herbalist and clinical nutritionist, Emily Samet. Email info@medicineforthepeople.org or call 802-387-3028 to schedule.
