"The Farmers Market will be located from Valentine Street to Pleasant Street"
ummmmm... That would be an intersection.
So it consists of a corner fruit stand?
Velentine Street is over two blocks long. It is almost three blocks from the bananer orifice. Can't expect them to be familiar with the territory.
WHAT?????
Actually 1 block from Main to Pleasant unless you wanna take it
to extremes and place it from Valentine to the intersection of
Main, Union and Pleasant which is what I first thought when reading
this.....

It officially extends past Pleasant to the river. So, it is ~2 1/2 blocks. I think the last 1/2 block is still dirt, but I don't hang in that part of town.
Oh yea, forgot about that little dead end section.... Big old
boarding house on the corner and I think some kind of warehouse
used to be back there by the river... Hard to believe that apartments
on that street used to go for big bucks in the 60's... John Wilkerson and his father built an apartment building up there and it was trashed within 15 years....

As always Bennington is working at something that they hope will bring in the TOURIST. Never mind year round jobs.

Mr. McNutt, I wonder if you realize what the biggest industry is in VT?

Post like a adult and I will answer. You must be afraid of your stand on the issue as you do not want a adult debate

TOURIST for Mayfest????
Lets see here, tour·ist
1. traveler for pleasure: a traveler who visits places away from home for pleasure
2. traveler for personal advantage: somebody who travels in order to take advantage of a particular service or benefit that is not available at home

Now according to the definition of TOURIST, I seriously doubt people will be driving 100-200 miles for over priced produce,
over priced over cooked ethnic foods and Bennville's signature
tie dyed T-Shirts and Peter Pan sandals....

You will however have those travelers from the boro's of Pleasant Street and Alto Vista and Bennville's eastern ward of Wufford...

Have you ever wondered why YEAR ROUND jobs seem to be in northern Vermont???? Could it be the HIGH High School dropout rates at MAU, one of the worst in the state and if GED's were not used in those statistics they would probably be the absolute worst.... In addition to this, shit roads and shit housing... Be thankful you have major employers like McDonalds and WalMart.....

The Mayfest party will have to go on without a key ingredient.

Ryan's probably has sufficient 'B' teamers to take up the slack. No need to worry for the slack jaw crowd.

Are you that much of a egotist that you watch your own movies?
