Home falls off truck
BARRE – Part of a prefabricated home destined for Martha’s Vineyard only made it from East Montpelier to Barre before falling off a flatbed truck on Maple Avenue early Thursday morning.

According to police, the incident occurred shortly after 6 a.m. when the “over-sized load” that had just left Huntington Homes in East Montpelier “shifted” moments after it passed Hope Cemetery and was rounding a curve near the bridge on Brook Street. The component of the home – the one featuring its front door – toppled off the truck and blocked the southbound lane of the street.

Morning traffic was initially limited to one-lane while inspectors from the state Department of Motor Vehicles conducted a brief investigation and before the crane needed to lift the home back on the truck arrived.

When the crane arrived shortly after 8 a.m., police closed the section of Maple Avenue between Seminary and Brook streets. The section of road remained closed while the crane hoisted the home back on to the truck so it could be hauled back to Huntington Homes for repair.

Maple Avenue was reopened shortly after 10:30 a.m.

Child drowns at Waterbury Reservoir
WATERBURY -- A 5-year-old boy drowned in the Waterbury Reservoir at the Little River State Park in Waterbury on Thursday, according to the Vermont State Police.
Police received a call around 2 p.m. requesting assistance locating Henry Beaird, 5, of Burlington, at the park.
When troopers arrived, rescue personnel were trying to revive Beaird. Despite the efforts of bystanders, members of Waterbury Rescue and the Waterbury Fire Department and a helicopter medical crew, Beaird was pronounced dead on scene.

Hello! May I be allowed to share the picture of Jordan and I of Shidaa African Cultural Project that printed in the Tuesday issue? Thank you so much for including us in the news that’s fit to print!! 😁
Someone asked me to raise my hand if I was tired of everything. This was my response. Nope, I am not tired of the sun coming up in the morning, I'm not tired of the amazing sunsets we have seen lately, I am not tired of the thrill I get to seeing my grandson online and talking to my son for hours, I am not tired of being able to walk down the street and hear people saying how's it going during this tumultuous time. I'm not tired of walking through the woods and suddenly seeing a bear or a moose or a deer. I'm not tired of breathing or feeling lucky and privileged to be able to breathe. Not tired of reading or writing books I'm not tired of this quiet and Solitude that I have had for a number of months. I'm not tired of my neighbors standing on their porches making sure their children are playing safe and hear them yell hey Bob, how's it going, I'll send over some cake or pie for you this afternoon. I'm not tired of taking the long walks I have been taking lately exploring my neighborhood. I am not tired of being free enough to say what I believe, and then watch everybody trying to be the first one to criticize what I've said, I am not tired of everyone else complaining about the things that I think are blessing to me and that I have the right to be blessed. I am not tired of talking to my God who seems to not exist in many locations. I'm not tired of catching up with friends, I am not tired of cooking new and exciting dinners, I'm not tired of hearing the kids in the neighborhood laughing and screaming and spraying each other with water on this hot day. I am not tired of taking long drives into the countryside and up to the mountains all by myself enjoying the wonders of nature. I think the only thing I am tired of his people telling me that they are tired of me not being tired of anything. These past four months have made me really realize and I mean really realize that I have no control over the chaos in this country and around the world. I can't do anything to change what is happening the only change I can make is in me and in my mind. I have no control over what people think of me and yet I have control over the Legacy I want to leave. I have no control over not having control. So when I hear people complaining about wearing a mask or seeing the protesters and the rioters and the people who are arguing about who is to blame and who's doing what, and when I see and hear the people who are putting blame on everyone else but themselves, especially the ones that feel they are holier than thou, I look up in the sky and know that I can breathe that air feel the sun on my face and know that the only thing I have control of is what I think, how I feel and how I try to live my life. No I am not tired of any of this because it's been going on for so long that people should have been tired of this long long ago when it was doable. When I see how tired people are what's going on around the world I think of the First Responders and the millions of nurses and doctors who are surrounding patients as they die and seeing them pass on or working with people who I'm desperate to get better and these essential workers know that the only thing they can change it's how they deal with the people who are dying. When I talk to my son and know that he is living in New York working as an essential worker, is black and has lived a tough life being black and trying overcome the stigma of that blackness and then tells me that he can only do what he is able to do and he can only change himself. I will never be tired of him. The way I look at it is when I feel like I am tired of something I have to realize that everyone else is tired of something also so the only thing I can do is stop being tired and move on with my life and make the changes that are coming workable for me and the people around me. I always revert back to my friend who survived the Holocaust and the camps. I wonder if he was tired of everything. I'm sure he wasn't happy with everything but the stories he has told me and how he survived makes me realize that I am strong and when I become tired the tiredness I have is the tiredness I have created or allowed to happen within me and I always know that I can change that. As long as I know that I have no control what happens in this world and that the little things that I do are only grains in the sand and yet I know that when you add many grains to that one grain, it can become a beach or an island or a mountain. So if you ask me if I am tired of everything the answer is no if you ask me if I'm concerned about a lot of stuff absolutely, if you ask me if I am disappointed in things that are happening, definitely. But when you ask me if I am tired I have only two ways to look at that. Giving up or standing up and I choose to stand. I hope that we all can look inside ourselves and find that inner strength to live the best life with whatever capacity we have and to leave where we are each minute better than we found it.
