The #valleynewsthrowback hashtag is my favorite hashtag.
And co-created by our dear friend Jovelle Tamayo, former Valley News photography intern.
The Authority Collective — a group which describes itself as “a group of womxn/femmes/trans/non-binary/gender non-conforming people of color reclaiming their authority in the photography, film and (virtual reality/augmented reality) industries” — was just profiled in this piece by Danielle Villasana on Medium.
“Now, it is up to the gatekeepers to really have those uncomfortable conversations about their privilege and how it enables the erasure of a balance in representation in the media.” – Laylah Barrayn (co-founder/EIC of MFON) https://t.co/wJl8eO0Uhh

“We want to challenge who holds power in the visual media world by uplifting our community and holding institutions accountable,” said Tamayo, of the Authority Collective. “We are making a point to focus on actions because we don’t have time to wait for these gatekeepers — who are happy to talk about inclusion but do little to address it in meaningful ways — to follow through.”

Montpelier — The glossy magazine that has extolled the virtues of the state of Vermont for the past 72 years is ending its print edition.
The final print edition of Vermont Life, the summer 2018 edition, went out to subscribers this week.
The state will shift Vermont Life operations to digital operations.
In a news release issued today, Michael Schirling, the secretary of the Agency of Commerce and Community Development, said Vermont Life has run a deficit of $3.5 million over the last decade.
Schirling says every effort was made to make the magazine financially viable, but those efforts “weren’t enough to change the reality.”
Currently, six people work for the magazine. They are expected to lose their jobs.
Vermont Life was founded in 1946.

I’m not the only one who noticed the helicopter — which seemed to be flying at relatively low altitudes while circling White River Junction after dark — on May 1.
When it happened again last night, my curiosity got the better of me. That’s two Tuesday nights in a row!
So I called up Braxton Freeman, Midwest Air Traffic’s manager at the air traffic control tower in Lebanon, this afternoon to figure out what’s up.
Braxton did a little research and found that it was an Army National Guard UH-60 Black Hawk doing some touch-and-goes — i.e. training drills — from Lebanon airport’s Runway 25.
“They might have been doing some night vision training,” Braxton said.
He isn’t sure if this will continue for the next few Tuesday nights; the Army Guard basically shows up when the training is needed.
I mean I guess you could probably find an organization where you could host a bird, too. But that’s not what this post is about.
To commemorate the release of Deadpool 2, the Nugget has announced it will host a double feature screening of both the original film and the sequel next Thursday, May 17.
Tickets went on sale today. Will you be attending?
Someone in Concord must be a real big Star Trek fan.
In honor of actor William Shatner’s upcoming visit to Concord for a question-and-answer session and hosted screening of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, the city of Concord has proclaimed next Friday as KHAN!CORD Day (lol):

Shatner famously played Capt. James T. Kirk of the starship USS Enterprise in the Star Trek TV series (and, later, movies). But one scene in particular quickly became the stuff of legends: His screaming of KHAAAAAAAAN! in Star Trek II. (In the movie, Kirk and his crew chase the evil Khan Noonien Singh, aka Khan, through space.)
Live long and prosper, Concord. 🖖
Roll call, everybody.

Dartmouth College’s Hopkins Center for the Arts will host “An Evening with Stranger Things‘ David Harbour” on Sunday. The event will include a custom reel clip and a live conversation with the actor, who also is a 1997 Dartmouth graduate, according to a news release.
From the release:
On May 13, the Hopkins Center presents an evening with this beloved son of Dartmouth, including a compilation of his work and a conversation about his two-decade journey as an actor—from treading the boards at Dartmouth as a theater major to his work in television and film. He will also share stories about preparing for his starring role in the upcoming reboot of Hellboy, due out in January 2019, and other future projects.
Harbour currently plays the role of Jim Hopper, the chief of police in fictional Hawkins, Ind., on the hit Netflix series Stranger Things. He recently wrapped filming on Hellboy, in which he will play the title character. (He also recently returned from a trip to Antarctica to see penguins.)
The event is scheduled for 7 p.m. on Sunday in the Spaulding Auditorium. The community is invited to attend. Tickets are $8 with a Dartmouth ID; otherwise, $15. Click here for more information or to buy tickets.

David Tomaszewski, of #RandolphVT, right, and David Aiken, of #BethelVT, dig #holes for new supports for the Bethel Drive-In sign in Bethel, on Tuesday. Tomaszewski, who has run the drive-in theater for three years and runs the Playhouse movie theater in Randolph with his wife, convinced Aiken, a neighbor of the #drivein, to grab a #shovel and help him with the work.
