I sent my news to the paper last week but for some unknown reason the email didn’t go through. So this week you’ll get both this week’s news, and information from last week.

The Johnson Select Board has voted to make the skatepark a no-hunting zone, due to safety issues. Much of the park is within 500 feet of nearby homes, though the center of it is not. The issue came up when deer and hunters were there during youth weekend.

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. It was something to go without electricity for a few days, but we all made it through.

With Thanksgiving so late this year, it feels like we’re gobbling up leftover turkey while trying to catch up with all we need to do to start December and everything that fills an always busy month. Oddly enough, the coming week seems fairly quiet.

Four of the things I’m most thankful for this week are the snow tires on my car. Another is a week of not needing to drive to Burlington, and the last is living in a community that’s large enough that I can do some hyperlocal shopping, but small enough that some of that shopping comes about …

Cambridge Cub Scout Pack 839 is hosting a free community supper on Saturday, Nov. 23. Stop by the Second Congregational Church in Jeffersonville to enjoy spaghetti, macaroni and cheese, salad, bread and dessert. This is the Scouts’ way of thanking the community for its support.

Kudos go out this week to LN Bethea, who has a piece in the Vermont Arts Council’s exhibit “I Am.” You can see LN’s work in the Spotlight Gallery at the council office, 136 State St. in Montpelier, along with works by 26 other artists, in an exhibit that explores what it means to be a Vermon…

It may be snowing but look at the good side: The holidays are upon us. (Never mind that you could buy a Christmas tree at Costco in the middle of October.) • The Jubilee will take place on Friday, Dec. 6, from 4 to 7 p.m., with its customary open businesses and holiday spirit. Instead of Buy…

Winter has come early! We got a few inches of snow last Thursday night into Friday. The roads were slippery Friday morning but by the time I headed to Burlington for my radiation, the roads were fine. The snow did close the road through Smugglers Notch. It’s not clear if this is permanent fo…

Talk about Halloween horrors. Instead of trick-or-treating on Railroad Street last Thursday, most of us were hunkered down, wondering if the roof would blow off.
