    Michael Cerulli Billingsley, the Emergency Management Director for Plainfield, has been writing about and doing personal research about climate history for about 15 years, beginning with his study of paleoclimate as it impacted the Atlantic cultures of ancient Europe.  Using time-lapse satellite imagery and anecdote, he will attempt to illustrate how a warming Arctic climate is dramatically changing our local weather patterns, the severity of storms, changing ecosystems of plants and bugs, and just how warm things are getting to be.

    Norwich University, Harmon Drive, Northfield, VT, United States

    Norwich Museum Presents “The Art of Empire: World War 2 Influences in Star Wars,” on Star Wars Day, May the Fourth

    Norwich University’s Sullivan Museum and History Center presents “The Art of Empire: World War 2 Influences in Star Wars,” a lunch and learn presentation on Star Wars Day, May the Fourth, with writer and editor Andrew Liptak.

    This lunch and learn event, held on Thursday, May 4, at noon, is free and open to the public and includes a complimentary light lunch.

    Since its release in 1977, George Lucas’s science fiction film Star Wars has become a world-wide popular culture phenomenon. Underlying its story of good-verses-evil is the influence of the Second World War, which informs the design and the structure of the franchise’s story. This presentation will look at how Lucas used imagery and icons from the World War II era to inform his Galaxy Far, Far Away, and why it holds up four decades later.

    Presenter Andrew Liptak graduated from Norwich University in 2007 with a Bachelor of Arts in History and in 2009 with a Master of Arts in Military History. He is currently the Weekend Editor for Vox Media’s technology and culture website The Verge, and has written for such outlets as Armchair General Magazine, Barnes and Noble, Clarkesworld Magazine, Gawker, Gizmodo, io9, Kirkus Reviews, Lightspeed Magazine, Tor.com, VentureBeat, and others. He is a member of the 501st Legion, a group of Star Wars costumers who engage in charitable events (pictured above in a Stormtroopers costume).

    Liptak is also a published author, with his first short story, ‘Fragmented’, appearing in Galaxy’s Edge Magazine in 2014 (reprinted at The Art of Future War Project in 2015). In 2014, he published his first anthology (co-edited with Jaym Gates), “War Stories: New Military Science Fiction,” sold by Apex Publications and Amazon.

    This presentation is held as part of the Sullivan Museum and History Center’s current exhibit, “World War: America and the Creation of a Superpower,” which examines the way World Wars I and II defined the United States’ place in the world. Featured objects include propaganda posters from both wars, rare uniforms, trench art, medals and objects from the field. Many new propaganda posters were added to the exhibit in mid-January to further showcase the Museum’s large collection.  The exhibit is open through the end of June 2017.

    The museum is open to the public from 8 – 4 Monday through Friday, and on Saturdays from 11 – 4 during the academic year. Admission is free. For more information about the programs or exhibit, please call 802-485-2183 or visit http://academics.norwich.edu/museum.

    When: Friday, May 5

    5:30 pm potluck

    6:30 pm program

    Where: Christ Church, State St., Montpelier

    What:  Forum on high-level nuclear waste (HLNW), the federal waste policy and environmental racism of the nuclear waste industry.  Speakers: Rose Gardner, an Andrews Co., Texas resident impacted by both a Texas low-level waste dump and a proposed Centralized Interim Storage site for HLNW; Kevin Kamps with Beyond Nuclear, will address the vulnerabilities of on-site storage of HLNW and federal policy; and Deb Katz with Citizens Awareness Network will address the issues of NorthStar (the corporation decommissioning VT Yankee), decommissioning, and hardened onsite storage at nuclear reactors.

    Do you know where our Vermont Yankee nuclear waste goes? Although the nuclear industry and federal government committed to create a solution for high-level nuclear waste disposal, no acceptable solution exists.   The sites targeted for “disposal”, like Andrews County, Texas (interim storage site) and Yucca Mountain (permanent storage site), are routinely low-income, rural, people of color and Native American communities. The industry pits nuclear communities against each other; reactor communities fear inadequate storage casks, lack of onsite protections and high-level waste abandonment.  Communities targeted for nuclear waste disposal don’t want dangerous nuclear waste in their backyard, particularly given the abysmal record of leaks and inadequate environmental protections.  Waste communities face unconscionable choices – short-term economic survival or long-term health and safety.

    It is essential that reactor and waste communities work together to create effective strategies and actions to defeat industry initiatives to target vulnerable communities and provide protections for reactor communities forced to be guardians of the world’s most toxic and long-lasting waste.

    Organized by Citizens Awareness Network, the Safe and Green Campaign and the VT Yankee Decommissioning Alliance

    6 p.m. You Are Here, Photography by Jennifer Barlow

    This exhibit celebrates the moments in life when we are really able to see the exquisiteness of this place we call home.   As a photographer, I find great joy in being able to capture an image that shows the startling beauty of the world, a bit of humor or something unexpected.

    7 p.m. Reading with Poet Laureate Sydney Lea

    Sydney Lea is an American poet, novelist, essayist, editor, and professor, and served as the Poet Laureate of Vermont from 2011 through 2016.  His writing reflects his passion for the natural world and his reflections on life, family, literature and humanity.  Maxine Kumin has described his work as “masterly narrative, supple lyricism balanced by an unflinching honesty.”

    • Environmental Justice and Nuclear Waste: The Road from Vermont Yankee to Texas
      Environmental Justice and Nuclear Waste: The Road from Vermont Yankee to Texas

      64 State St, Montpelier, VT, United States

       

      When: Friday, May 5

      5:30 pm potluck

      6:30 pm program

      Where: Christ Church, State St., Montpelier

      What:  Forum on high-level nuclear waste (HLNW), the federal waste policy and environmental racism of the nuclear waste industry.  Speakers: Rose Gardner, an Andrews Co., Texas resident impacted by both a Texas low-level waste dump and a proposed Centralized Interim Storage site for HLNW; Kevin Kamps with Beyond Nuclear, will address the vulnerabilities of on-site storage of HLNW and federal policy; and Deb Katz with Citizens Awareness Network will address the issues of NorthStar (the corporation decommissioning VT Yankee), decommissioning, and hardened onsite storage at nuclear reactors.

      Do you know where our Vermont Yankee nuclear waste goes? Although the nuclear industry and federal government committed to create a solution for high-level nuclear waste disposal, no acceptable solution exists.   The sites targeted for “disposal”, like Andrews County, Texas (interim storage site) and Yucca Mountain (permanent storage site), are routinely low-income, rural, people of color and Native American communities. The industry pits nuclear communities against each other; reactor communities fear inadequate storage casks, lack of onsite protections and high-level waste abandonment.  Communities targeted for nuclear waste disposal don’t want dangerous nuclear waste in their backyard, particularly given the abysmal record of leaks and inadequate environmental protections.  Waste communities face unconscionable choices – short-term economic survival or long-term health and safety.

      It is essential that reactor and waste communities work together to create effective strategies and actions to defeat industry initiatives to target vulnerable communities and provide protections for reactor communities forced to be guardians of the world’s most toxic and long-lasting waste.

      Organized by Citizens Awareness Network, the Safe and Green Campaign and the VT Yankee Decommissioning Alliance

      6 p.m. You Are Here, Photography by Jennifer Barlow

      This exhibit celebrates the moments in life when we are really able to see the exquisiteness of this place we call home.   As a photographer, I find great joy in being able to capture an image that shows the startling beauty of the world, a bit of humor or something unexpected.

      7 p.m. Reading with Poet Laureate Sydney Lea

      Sydney Lea is an American poet, novelist, essayist, editor, and professor, and served as the Poet Laureate of Vermont from 2011 through 2016.  His writing reflects his passion for the natural world and his reflections on life, family, literature and humanity.  Maxine Kumin has described his work as “masterly narrative, supple lyricism balanced by an unflinching honesty.”

    If you’re a wildlife enthusiast itching for spring then be sure to check out the eighteenth annual Herrick’s Cove Wildlife Festival on Sunday, May 7, 2017 in Rockingham, Vermont.

    Herrick’s Cove, on the Connecticut River, hosts one of the most popular festivals in the area, with organizers reporting more than 2,000 people attending last year’s event.  The festival includes nature walks and live animals such as hawks, owls, coyotes, wolves, fish, turtles, and snakes..

    “Vermonters really enjoy the wild animals and wild places that make the state so special,” said Forrest Hammond, bear project leader with Vermont Fish & Wildlife. “This festival gives participants a chance to experience some of these animals firsthand and learn about the importance of conserving their habitats so future generations can appreciate them as well.”

    The Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department will host several exhibits at the event, including animal mounts, interactive demonstrations, hands-on fishing activities hosted by the department’s Let’s Go Fishing program, information on bears and bats, a 4-H shooting event as well as fun games for kids.  Other presenters include Jim Andrews on turtles, the Ascutney Mountain Audubon Society, The Nature Museum at Grafton, and TransCanada Corporation.

    Activities are scheduled from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.  The suggested donation is $2.00 for an individual and $5.00 for a family.  Pets are not allowed.

    Herrick’s Cove is located just off Route 5, less than three miles north of Bellows Falls.

    The Bereavement/Grief Support Group is open to anyone who has experienced the death of a loved one. There is no fee.

    The group focuses on learning together about coping with grief, with the intention of receiving and offering support. The group is informal and includes sharing of personal grief experiences. Each session is accompanied by relevant handouts, books and videos that can be borrowed for review at home.

    Our goal is to provide a safe and supportive environment for exploration of the changes brought to our lives by the death of a loved one. We encourage participants to attend as many sessions as possible. Groups meet in eight- session blocks.

    Any sharing that takes place in the group is to be kept within the group; no individual will criticize or make public judgments about the responses of another member of the group; and all members will be invited and given the opportunity to speak in the group if they choose.

    If you have questions about these support groups, contact Diana Moore at 802-223-1878.

    961 U.S. 2, Middlesex, VT, United States

    Join Velo Vermont for our second annual Spring Roll on May 21st 2017.

    Here’s the deal – it’s not a vintage cruise, it’s more than a ride, but less than a race, it’s mostly gravel.

    There are no entrance fee, no frills, some beers stashed in the woods, and a good tough early season ride with friends, not 600 goobers with carbon wonder-bikes that don’t know how to shift.
    Expect a fun casual vibe, some modest food and drink fare, warm sun and/or cold rain, and some classic Vermont backroads.
    The route will feature approximately 35 miles of local roads – Nutty and Chased, Chandler, to Northfield Gentrified Store, lots of Lover’s lanes, and a dance with the Devil in the Washbowl.

    The ride will start from Middleground (961 US-2, Middlesex, VT 05602) – Red Hen and Nutty Steph’s at 13h00. Red Hen will offer a deal for lunch before the ride. We will have some treats from Nutty Steph’s and Good Measure/Carrier Coffee roasters to get you kick started before the ride.

      Join Velo Vermont for our second annual Spring Roll on May 21st 2017.

      Here’s the deal – it’s not a vintage cruise, it’s more than a ride, but less than a race, it’s mostly gravel.

      There are no entrance fee, no frills, some beers stashed in the woods, and a good tough early season ride with friends, not 600 goobers with carbon wonder-bikes that don’t know how to shift.
      Expect a fun casual vibe, some modest food and drink fare, warm sun and/or cold rain, and some classic Vermont backroads.
      The route will feature approximately 35 miles of local roads – Nutty and Chased, Chandler, to Northfield Gentrified Store, lots of Lover’s lanes, and a dance with the Devil in the Washbowl.

      The ride will start from Middleground (961 US-2, Middlesex, VT 05602) – Red Hen and Nutty Steph’s at 13h00. Red Hen will offer a deal for lunch before the ride. We will have some treats from Nutty Steph’s and Good Measure/Carrier Coffee roasters to get you kick started before the ride.

    Thursday, May 25 from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m.

    Patty Joslyn, author of ru mi nate​ (meditations on mystical wisdoms) and Jan Alexandra Sandman, author of White Stones, Bones, and Mist: Authentic Movement and Living Prayer

    will be reading and signing books at the Jaquith Public Library in Marshfield.

    With the book, “ru mi nate​,” Joslyn comes full circle, like the mandalas included in the book, to embrace both the intention and the defining of the circle (all things) and the kind offer to go within; to meet others elsewhere/anywhere in The Great Spirit of Love. Patty Joslyn returns home for a visit to read and sign books from Northern California. She and her husband, Larry Babic, raised their family in Central Vermont. We hope to see you soon.

    “White Stones, Bones, and Mist,” by Jan Sandman, describes the practice and process of Authentic Movement. White Stones, Bones, and Mist would be of practical interest for anyone interested in the connection between mind, body and spirit for support in developing a more authentic and intuitive way of living. Anyone who is engaged in embodiment practices of any kind, in consciousness and spiritual development would find themselves in these pages.
