The UVPulse - Friday, June 8, 2018
Rating life in the Upper Valley - one observation at a time. Current UVPulse Rating: 75/100
Not a good day to be a fish: There are a lot of annual events and rituals that remind us summer is near (bad hair days thanks to humidity being one of them). But for many an angler or angler-wannabe, the best sign is Free Fishing Day in VT, which happens this Saturday, June 9. Go forth and catch a fish, even without a license.
UVPulse rating: +2
Comments: Any event that encourages folks to go outside deserves a +1. The fact that there is no "Free Driving Day in VT" (allowing folks without a license to get behind the wheel) deserves its own +1.
Granite Staters are a bargain: The Daily UV recently reported that it costs $11,600 per resident to govern VT, vs. $8,300 per NH resident.
UVPulse rating: -1
Comments: We admit the reason behind the discrepancy between these two numbers is way over our heads. But anything with the word 'cost', followed by a 4-digit number, rubs us the wrong way.
Walking outside of the lines: UVPulse happened to find itself in Hanover, today, behind this man wearing a Beatles "Abbey Road" T-shirt.
