Vermont Is Remaking its Power Grid to Fight Climate Change

This Vermont Utility Is Revolutionizing Its Power Grid to Fight Climate Change. Will the Rest of the Country Follow Suit? The rural town of Panton, Vt., is home to GMP’s newest effort to remake the electric system: a “microgrid” attached to a solar power plant, which can distribute its electricity to parts of the nearby community in case they get cut off from the main energy network due to falling trees or heavy snows, common occurrences in this isolated New England town.

Far Behind On Candlebox’s Career? This Interview Will Catch You Up.

Starting out in the early-’90s grunge scene, Candlebox lead singer Kevin Martin didn’t feel like a soon-to-be rock star. “I wasn’t living the lifestyle of the other Seattle musicians,” he tells me over Zoom from his home in Los Angeles. “I wasn’t a bike messenger like [Pearl Jam’s] Jeff Ament was, and I didn’t work at a coffee shop like half the other musicians in Seattle did. I worked at a shoe store. Then I went and worked at a really nice shoe store and I had to wear suits and nice shoes and ...

Gillmor Gang: Off the Wall

Most of us count the golden age of Michael Jackson’s career with the Quincy Jones produced global smashes of Thriller and Bad. Fueled by the stream of videos and multi-single releases (5 on Bad), the records dominated the charts, radio, and MTV. But the real breakthrough came just before with Jackson’s first solo record Off the Wall. Born in the thrall of the Disco Era, it wasn’t hip, a surrender to the feel of funk meets MGM. But in the mountains around Woodstock, we couldn’t pry this record...

‘There’s a lot to unpack’: the dark, difficult life of Rick James

In a new documentary, the defining funk artist’s ups and many downs are examined with a clear eye and a lack of sugar-coatingIn the jarring new music documentary, Bitchin: The Sound and Fury of Rick James, we see a star torn in half. On the one hand, there’s the Rick James who created some of the most popular, distinct and outrageous funk music of the late 70s and early 80s. On the other, there’s a man so lost to his desire for sex, drugs and recognition that his life became an obstacle course l...

PBOT has closed the NE Tillamook/82nd Avenue gap

Before/after looking west on NE Tillamook at 82nd. (Photos: Blake T.) One of Portland’s oldest neighborhood greenway routes recently got an important upgrade. Northeast Tillamook has been a key east-west piece of Portland’s bike network for over two decades. It was first set-aside as a “bike boulevard” (former name of neighborhood greenways) and given bike-specific treatments in 1999 and was meant to be a low-stress option to the nearby commercial corridor on NE Broadway. Back then we had o...

I grew up in Portland, and I love it. Here's why I'm never moving back, even though I can work from anywhere.

Portland is home to violent protests, tent cities, killer heat waves, and my parents. (That's me in the striped shirt, with my mother and brothers, from a family photo circa 1983.) Dakarai Akil for Insider It was around the time of the second baby that we started to think about where to settle down. For many years my wife and I had pursued the semi-itinerant lifestyle of freelance workers. Place was a liquid commodity. We changed apartments every year or two. The one consistency was the...

Ashokan Farewell

Carolyn and I are biking along the Ashokan Reservoir near Woodstock today.  The reservoir was built between 1905 and 1914 to supply clear mountain water to New York City — water purity protected by forest preserve land.  When the reservoir was filled, thousands of acres of farmland were submerged, including 12 small communities of 2,000 people and the locations where their 504 homes, 35 stores, 9 blacksmith shops, 10 churches, 10 schools, and 7 saw mills once stood. Cemeteries were relocat...

In Woodstock

Just arrived in Woodstock, NY and I’m happy to report the lights are on despite the storm (which is downgraded from a hurricane).  As we drove up, dozens of utility and tree trucks were in convoys coming up from the south.  Driving in the heavy rain and fog was fun.  Local flooding tomorrow, I’ll bet.  We’re now parked in a local restaurant that fundraises for the local animal shelter — I like that!

10 Things I Love Sunday

I was having coffee with a friend the other day at one of my favorites places—European Cafe. It’s connected to a cool office building that was built over 100 years ago. You guyyyys. The inside looks like the set of Mad Men and I can’t get over it. I had to get a picture in front of the old elevators (and yes, those are marble walls). It was the highlight of my week!
