    Join Keith Herkalo to mark the 200 year anniversary of the land and naval battles of Plattsburgh, and to learn about the battles themselves.

    Both Roosevelt and Churchill recognized the importance of the land and naval battles of Plattsburgh. Many other, more famous, engagements were ruses meant to divert U.S. troops away from the prize Plattsburgh would afford: a clear pathway into New England. If not for the exemplary skills of two young military officers, Commodore Macdonough and General Macomb, and the force they commanded—regular army and naval personnel, New York and Vermont Militia, Native Americans, Veteran Exempts and boys from the local school—the war and the nation...

    Join Tovar Cerulli for a discussion of the unlikely and provocative journey from vegan to hunter. A meditation on the ethics and ecology of food. An adventurous quest for dinner.

    As a boy, Tovar Cerulli spent his summers fishing for trout and hunting bullfrogs. At twenty, moved by the compassionate words of Buddhist teacher Thich Nhat Hanh and concerned about the ecological impacts of meat, he became a vegetarian. Soon he went vegan.

    A decade later, in the face of declining health, he returned to omnivory. Searching for ethical, ecologically responsible ways to come to terms with his food, he began to contemplate the unthinkable: hunting. Two years later, he took...

    There’s a new set of 3Rs for our kids – respect, responsibility, and resilience – that will better prepare them for life in the real world. Join Vicki Hoefle, founder of the Parenting On Track™ program and author of the new book Duck Tape Parenting, A Less is More Approach to Raising Respectful, Responsible and Resilient Kids, for a one-hour presentation on becoming a “Duct Tape Parent”. This counter-intuitive – yet much more effective than a quick-fix – approach is for parents to sit on their hands, stay on the sidelines, even if duct tape is required, so that the kids step up and take charge of their own lives.

    Vicki will give parents a new perspective on what it...
