U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) has endorsed Becca Balint, Vermont's Senate president, in her run for the state's lone U.S. House seat. In a written statement, Sanders lauded Balint, who has served in the state Senate since 2015, as someone who "does the work" as a "voice for rural Vermonters" and as a "champion for the working class."

Free Will Astrology (7/6/22)

CANCER (Jun. 21-Jul. 22): As a child, Cancerian author June Jordan said, "I used to laugh all the time. I used to laugh so much and so hard in church, in school, at the kitchen table, on the subway! I used to laugh so much my nose would run and my eyes would tear and I just couldn't stop." That's an ideal I invite you to aspire to in the coming days. You probably can't match Jordan's plenitude, but do your best. Why? The astrological omens suggest three reasons: 1. The world will seem funnier to you than it has in a long time. 2. Laughing freely and easily is the most healing action you can take right now. 3. It's in the interests of everyone you know to have routines interrupted and disrupted by amusement, delight and hilarity.

Andriana Chobot, 'Return to Sincere'

(Self-released, CD, digital) From the start of her sophomore album, Return to Sincere, Andriana Chobot makes her intended tone clear. The intro track features the echo of approaching footsteps, rhythmic as a drumbeat. Over the buzz of a fluorescent light, a female voice gently sings a few unintelligible notes, like a distant siren's warning song.

Ben Patton, 'Hyde's Hill Henhouse'

Ben Patton is romantic to a fault. So admits the Burlington singer-songwriter on his new album, Hyde's Hill Henhouse. You could also say Patton is classical to a fault. Reaching deep into yesteryear, the multi-instrumentalist often composes songs so steeped in tradition that you might think he cribbed them from Cole Porter or Django Reinhardt. Listen to his 2019 album with Michelle Sudarsono, Our Follies, for an extended stay in Patton's reimagined golden age of pop-jazz.

After a Two-Year Pandemic Hiatus, Circus Smirkus Hits the Road Again

Frederick Buford stepped into the ring at the Circus Smirkus Circus Barn in Greensboro last week dressed in a checkered vest, knee-high red socks and a matching red nose. The 16-year-old juggler began his routine by animatedly tossing and catching several orange balls at once. Then, with the ringmaster, he performed a whimsical act about cleaning a car involving lots of sponge throwing and water squirting.
