Thin Crust Pizza opens
on Putney Road

BRATTLEBORO -- If you are experiencing withdrawal pains for Italian cuisine from Bootsy’s Grille in Newfane, you need look no further than Thin Crust Pizza in the Hannaford Plaza on Putney Road.

"We have the same recipes, a similar menu and thin crust pizza," said Meagan Coburn, owner of the new pizzeria in an old bank building in the northeast corner of the parking lot.

She’s been overseeing the renovation of the building for nearly a year and this weekend is inviting customers to stop in for a bite to eat during the pizzeria’s grand opening, during which a minimum purchase of $15 will get you a 10-inch cheese pizza for another 25 cents.

The restaurant seats 24 people inside and in the summer will have outdoor seating. In addition, it offers delivery, generally in the area between Exits 1 and 4 of I-91. In the near future they will be utilizing the bank’s old drive-through window as a order-in-advance pickup window.

Thin Crust Pizza is open Sunday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., and offers pizza by the pie or slice, salads, chicken and eggplant parmesan, sub sandwiches and Mike Greco’s famous "King Calzone."

Everything in the restaurant is made from scratch and Coburn said they hope to soon offer a gluten-free crust pizza.

BroadbandVT grand prize winner from Dummerston

DUMMERSTON -- Congratulations to Randolph Holhut from East Dummerston, the Grand Prize Sweepstakes winner. A statewide pool of participants entered the contest by using at least one of the functions available on the website. The prize includes stays at two of Vermont’s exceptional inns: the Three Mountain Inn in Jamaica and Killington’s Snowed Inn.

Reaching the state goal to bring broadband service to every home and business has required a lot of basic data about who has service and who is not yet served. has been an interactive tool for gathering information directly from those in that "not yet served" category. The input has been analyzed by the partnership of organizations working to meet this ambitious, but reachable goal. Many projects to expand broadband are in process and will be bringing new services online throughout 2013.

The website will be shifting in the next months of 2013, from gathering information to being a resource for sharing information.

A Tempo Senior Move featured in the Wall Street Journal

JAMAICA -- A newly established business that provides assistance for elders and their families in what can be a difficult transition of changing living situations was mentioned recently in a Wall Street Journal article by Anne Tergesen (Dec. 10). In the piece, the author discussed the pros and cons of downsizing and featured as an example A Tempo Senior Move, a local and regional resource located in Jamaica. Tergesen described how a particular client successfully used the services of A Tempo Senior Move a couple of times in the process of moving into more comfortable living quarters.

A Tempo Senior Move is so named by its owner Alice Abraham because, as a former librarian, her specialty was music. The fact that Abraham is a librarian lends itself to the organizational skills needed to facilitate the necessities of downsizing. In the WSJ article, Tergesen wrote, "To help (her client) part with a broken rocking chair that had been in her childhood room, Ms. Abraham says, she ‘gradually inched the chair closer to the front door’ until, one day, it was on the sidewalk." Finesse is often needed for the process of sorting, distributing and ridding of the accumulation of ‘stuff’ through the years, according to Abraham.

Her use of the musical direction a tempo (Italian for in time) reflects that her firm’s services are designed to help her clients and their families resume their original pace after a transition.

A partial roster of A Tempo Senior Move services includes developing an overall move plan to a one-level home, residential care complex, or nursing home, or an "age in place" plan; downsizing or right-sizing belongings; organizing and sorting goods and valuables for future use or profitable disposal; and all the many details involved in a change or move from the current living situation to a more suitable lifestyle.
