The ice is melting here in #BTV and no buds on the trees yet, as seen here on a walk with @SHerschorn along the shores of Lake Champlain. The Adirondack mountain range of New York State is on the other side of the lake in the distance. This was made last… https://t.co/yPTRyu8x7z https://t.co/oa8XIIVYth

After "benefits" add an asterisk + words "public employees excepted" Thanks Molly/Beth/Becca/Jill for shorting the one profession dominated by women and most diverse--public school teachers/staff. Yes some balance by denying mostly male state police fair pensions! #btv #vtpoli https://t.co/y71nLcxAyJ

I expanded the news aggregator to provide up to 10 stores in BTV Daily from the previous 8. We'll see if we start getting too many low quality stories. If that's the case, we'll go back to 8.

- Sweeping Needed
I went out the other day checking many of the other bike lanes in town;
N & S Winooski Ave
and all had the same problem of debris; silt, sand, gravel, broken glass, blown trash, and more. Presumably given the 1000 batting record on the many that I checked I suspect every bike lane in the city has the same issue with hazardous conditions.
Please, please, please go out and sweep our bike lanes. Last I knew there were only around 10 miles of them in the whole city. Seems like this could easily be knocked out in a day or two and then it would no longer be putting off people from healthy transportation and recreation.
Given the present dangerous conditions I even know regular daily riders who are put off from going out unless they have to due to the very real dangers from flats and crashes all due to the accumulation of materials in the spaces we've "dedicated" for cyclists.
The city has a duty to keep our streets accessible and currently one way of getting around is being severely disadvantaged.

Random Burlingtonian Quote of the Day 📝
The artist in realizing his own individuality reveals potentialities hitherto unrealized. The revelation is the inspiration of other individuals to make the potentialities real, for it is not sheer revolt against things as they are which stirs human endeavor to its depth, but vision of what might be and is not. Subordination of the artists to any special cause no matter how worthy does violence not only to the artist but to the living source of a new and better future.
