Mt Bolton and UVM
It might seem like a rumor too farfetched to be true, and perhaps it is. It was leaked to us that Redstone Commercial Group, Vermont’s largest commercial property group, might donate Mt. Bolton to the University of Vermont sometime in the future. We are not clear if this is supposed to be Bolton Valley Resort, the whole mountain, or a combination of the two. (Chances are that this...

The line was longer during parts of the day, but this is roughly how long the line was most of the day. It took about 15-20 minutes to get a free cone or cup of ice cream. Phish Food, Chocolate Therapy, and Americone Dream were their most popular flavors that day.

A Message from Jack Birmingham: The Final Plea
As the election period comes to a close on the 28th at 4 PM, this is my last plea to the group that first gave my campaign momentum. I will keep this short and sweet, this is a battle between establishment candidate and populist. Aya’s platform is based almost entirely around her experience with Student Government & how she understands how the system works. I have seen that system,...
Anonymous asked: I just want to put out there that I'm upset how you have shared the details of Kingbread's arrest. I understand why people would want to know that it happened, but you've put out information that seems like it should be confidential. Like his address. That could affect his and his family's safety. A description I can understand, but scanning the documents seems a bit too far...

Fewer than 30 people showed up to witness the farce of the UVM SGA Debates. Presidential candidate Connor Daley, occasionally tapping away on a tablet computer, stressed that his job was as someone translating student opinion to the administration. ”I don’t fucking care,” Daley remarked casually, when someone asked his personal opinion on the Tobacco-Free UVM issue. Connor...
Early morning was interrupted in Buckham, where alarms were sounding and a growing spill was in progress. A student broke a ceiling sprinkler on the fourth floor, and water damage, up to a few inches, has affected several floors of the building.
Anonymous asked: How about Jack just runs for president? Hell, he's taken the time to craft a thoughtful thank-you, acknowledge the student body, AND produced a list of issues he plans on dealing with...What in the actual fuck has Daley done? Write-in Birmingham for president!
Message from Jack Birmingham (candidate for VP)
Dear UVM Little Bird & Followers, The words I type will fail to adequately express my gratitude for your endorsement for my candidacy of UVM’s Student Government Vice-President. Since I was only elected to SGA in the midterm election earlier this semester, I am an outsider much of the SGA network. I do agree that there is a lack of transparency or communication between SGA & the...
Aya VS Jack
As someone who knows Jack and Aya both, I feel I might be able to shed some light on the VP race. Jack’s a good kid, means well, knows how to have a good time, and is genuinely a good-intentioned candidate. I feel like Aya is doing it more for the position and the fame… I have no idea what she would do to change the SGA. I can’t say I pay much attention to what the SGA does/doesn’t do, though I...

UVM loses, 53-49
UVM lost by a mere 4 points against Albany in the American East Championship today. UVM began a recovery in the second half, but failed to catch up to Albany. At the end of the 1st half, the score was 20-28, Albany.
In response to fakes, had one taken away from a friend at RiRa. The guy at the door took about a half of a second to realize it was fake, it was incredible. RiRa’s is out, too. Thanks for the submission! EDIT: Another contributor said that VT Pub and Brewery takes and frames confiscated IDs.

Anonymous asked: Speaking of fake ideas... can you ask your followers if they have any experiences with fakes on St. Pattys day? I want to go to bars downtown but they will either be super strict because of the special day or it will be so crazy that they wont care.
Anonymous asked: What is the policy with confiscated fake IDs in Burlington? Do the police do anything with them and fine the owner? Do they get the university involved?
Anonymous asked: Does UVM cover up suicides or deaths due to alcohol? Shouldn't the university care a bit more about prevention?

Kingbread was spotted on campus and gave us a quick rap. Enjoy.
Anonymous asked: I hope that whomever wrote/embedded the message in the e-mail continues to unveil the truth behind who Connor Daley really is. I'm sure he's panicked that someone may realize that he is a racist who makes absurd comments as someone who is supposed to be in such a "leadership" role.
