Beautiful State - But May Not Be Able to Afford It - 7/9/2009
I have lived in Vermont most of my life. Times are certainly changing around here. I heard on the news tonight that Vermont topped yet another list of the most taxed states in the union. I am here to tell you it's true.

So what will it be - beauty or taxes. It's up to Read More

where??? - 4/12/2009
I lived in Vermont for 32 years and raised my children there. In 2004 I got a temporary (6 mos.) job with the United Nations in Kosovo. That was great and i would have liked to continue in international development work but no one offered me another job. I then joined my husband for a year long sailboat trip to FL, around FL and then back to VT. We have traveled and lived in many different place since returning from the boat trip. We have also lived on the boat part or all of the summers on the New England coast. My husband has a business that he can operate from anywhere with Internet (we have a mobile Internet card) and phone. I've had it with traverling and spending a lot of time hanging around on the boat while my husband works. I want some independence, my own money, friends and everything else that comes from living in one place. I know there are ups and downs. But, I want to give it a try again. But, over these years I have come to really dislike cold weather. So Read More

Southern Vermont Living - 4/1/2009
Vermont is a beautiful place to live if you love long, cold, snowy winters, mud season, hot summers and picturesque fall color. There are 4 very definite seasons here. But combine this with a high cost of living due to taxes, the housing market, and fuel costs with only an average pay scale and sometimes you feel like Vermont life can be a struggle to stay ahead.
There is definite small town charm and everyone knows everyone here. Dummerston is a very desirable place to live just outside the larger town of Brattleboro being only 10 minutes away. Dummerston has only one Elementary school that is know for its good academics and sports teams which consists of grades K-8. There is little to no night life but there are some very nice charming restaurants and wine bars in downtown Brattleboro nearby. A great place to raise a family if the higher cost of living and change of seasons is what you are looking for. A bit boring for the college age Read More

Vermont is a State of Mind - 4/30/2008
I first moved to Vermont late 1968. I moved out of state in '71 to the Bay Area, CA and after 5 years I moved to southern MN. I finally returned to VT in 1979. It is hard to remember the other places I lived (even my native state, NY) but VT always called me Read More

Bellows Falls - 12/7/2007
Bellows Falls is trying to revitalize--slowly. The is a trickle of solid middle class that is slowly buying homes in need of TLC. The area just needs more Read More

cost per child - 9/11/2007
Your data on education cost is outdated. Vermont now spends an average of 15,000 per child per year. It was all over the news last month, as many feel that we don't need to give our kids a "cadilac" education. I personally don't have an opinion about it, I just thought it was an interesting statistic.

Reasons to Move to Vermont - 9/3/2007
Even though a Vermont town couldn't make the charts for one of the most romantic cities, the state in general makes the top ten economically. It has the lowest pupil to teacher ratio in the nation, spends 15,000 annually per child, the third highest minimum wage ($7.53), real estate values in many towns increased at a rate of 12-13% in 2007 next to the national average which was 9.8% and the cost of living is only 7% above the national average. Add the rolling green mountains, sparkling streams and you've got it Read More
