Reporter Anne Helen Peterson writes this week in @buzzfeednews "Why The Small Protests In Small Towns Across America Matter." People who’ve watched and participated in the Black Lives Matter movement say that this time feels different. And the prevalence of these small protests is one of many reasons why. The photo above is from Riverton, Wyoming. "All over the country, people are showing up — often for the first time in their lives — to protest police brutality and injustice. In tiny ag towns like Havre and Hermiston, Oregon, but also in midsize cities Topeka, Kansas, and Waco, Texas; on island hamlets (Friday Harbor, San Juan Island; Nantucket, Massachusetts; Bar Harbor, Maine); and in well-to-do suburbs (Lake Forest Park, Washington; Darien, Connecticut; Chagrin Falls, Ohio). They are showing up at the courthouse. They are kneeling and observing eight minutes of silence — a reference to how long Floyd was pinned to the ground in a knee chokehold by the Minneapolis police officer who was later charged with his murder. They are marching down interstates and waving signs on street corners. Sometimes, like in the town of Alton, New Hampshire (population 5,335), where one woman organized a protest just two months after being hospitalized with COVID-19, only seven people come. Sometimes, like in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, there are thousands.
These protests are covered by local news outlets, but amid the deluge of national news — major protests in major cities, guard tanks and helicopters, tear gas and rubber bullets, looting and destruction in select cities, the president’s reaction, massive economic anxiety and unemployment, all against the backdrop of the continued spread of COVID-19 — it’s hard for these stories of smaller, even silent, protests to break through."

Tasty Road Trips is so excited to share the beautiful gems of Brantford Brant with our tour guests, soon! From delicious sips and snacks, to stunning scenic views, to unique small town shops ....soon we will safely host private group tours for you and your fave people!
When it is safe to open our tours again, we will be launching private group tours only, to begin.
I am just in Paris, curbside picking up my locally inspired foods with such an array of offerings at Paris Wincey Mill. I am delighted to see so many safe procedures to dine and shop, so many folks wearing masks, and the beautiful views are still here waiting for you!
Happy weekend, friends 🙌🏻 Sharing a few random things that you might not know about me for #Fridayintroductions
✨I love flea markets, antique stores, and thrift shops. A good yard sale find can put a smile on my face all day 🤗
✨I’m a fraternal twin 👭
✨I’ve been an a huge fangirl of George Strait fan since I was a kid (if you see this, @georgestrait 👋🏻 hi)
✨I love potato chips on my sandwiches
✨My dream is to one day merge our homestead offerings (meat, flowers, produce, eggs, maple, baked goods) with our farmhouse decor business and open a farm store on our property. 🤞🏻 Someday
✨Right now our homestead is home to Kevin and me, our 2 pups, Bonnie & Clyde, a kitten, Gus, 80 laying hens, 25 meat birds, 5 guinea hens & 5 pigs.
✨I am an introvert and Enneagram #3
✨My favorite color is yellow 💛
✨We live 5 miles away from a famous haunted house. The Discovery channel did a show on it years ago and it was the talk of our town.
✨Our town has 2007 people, no stop light, one gas station, one beer store, and a Dollar General - oh, also a school and a post office.
I’d love to know a little fun fact about you! 😊
Tomorrow from 8 am to 1 pm is the next Village of Hamilton Farmers Market! Please visit our Stories for a summary of safety guidelines currently in place. See the full list through the link in our bio.
As a reminder, the Hamilton Area Anti-Racism Coalition is hosting a peaceful protest after the market, with poster making on the Green starting at 1 pm and the protest starting at 2 pm. Let us stand with people of color for justice and peace. Physical distancing and mask rules will be observed.
I’m so deeply proud to live in a place where a protester dressed like this can approach a cop with something smoking in his hand and not face violence. That’s a credit to the police force, to the protesters, and to the fact that they are on the same side of the most charged and important issue in America. And I’m honored to know @bonzeye123 who captured this amazing moment. #blacklivesmatter#change#smalltowns#southdakota

Flashback Friday to a great long weekend we had down the South Coast. Tilba is a gorgeous place to visit and the kids favourite because they had a fabulous Lolly Shop. We had a great time wandering the Main Street. #tilba#lollyshop#southcoast#smalltowns#country
I think I’m gonna need to cut his hair again this weekend... 🤷🏼♀️ but I am extremely grateful for his love for me, and that everyday is an adventure for the two of us. Marriage is one hundred percent not easy, but worth every moment making it work 💕
Still taking pics from the car, but this one is set so far back from the road I really couldn’t get any closer on foot. I drive by this grand dame frequently and admire that mansard roof. I’ll have to take another photo when the trees aren’t so full and there’s a better view. But still, 😍
I’m skipping ahead to closer to the end of my trip, in Slovenia, for one picture. There's a reason for that which you’ll find out soon 🙂
After weeks of hiking and walking, I had sworn off hiking up mountains for the rest of my trip as my legs needed a break. However, I woke up one morning realizing how much I would regret not hiking up to this one area for an overhead view of Lake Bled in the Julian Alps. (And it wasn’t a very long or hard hike; it was just all uphill.) I’m so glad I decided to bite the bullet, because look at this view!
Și când s-a zis cu călătoriile pentru cine știe cât timp și începi să ai ochi pentru ce-i în jurul tău... descoperi că orașul natal nu arata rău deloc. 😏 •••••••••••• When you know it's over with future trips for an undetermined period of time you begin to look closely around. And you might notice that your hometown does not look bad at all.
Like everyone else, I’m scared for our small town (and everywhere). For as long as I’ve lived here, I’ve always felt so safe. Hell, my car keys have always lived IN my car. We live in the middle of nowhere, so when tragedy hits around the world, I would joke that this is one of the main reasons I live in Jackson Hole. This month has made me feel anything but safe. That bubble of living in a remote small town has made this whole Corona Virus thing very real with the first case to hit Teton County.
Our hospital is amazing but only has so many beds. I worry about our healthcare capacity and the strain on nurses and doctors. Our small businesses, who I feel so deeply make this town what is it, were depending on those Spring Break dollars. I worry about the impact that will have on their families and our local economy. Our kids need to eat and I worry about the families who rely, yes…even in one of the wealthiest counties in the country, on meals at school for their kids everyday. (There is a fund set up for Teton County, check my stories to donate). And I’m most concerned about the mental health of everyone’s wellbeing while being cooped up at home, especially those who are alone. •
At the pet store I overheard this elderly woman say “I just finished chemo and I’m so susceptible to catching everything. I guess I need to hunker down for awhile. I’m just so scared.” That really hit me and is enough for me to hunker down too, FOR HER.
It’s weird times like these that I realize I have a platform and that I need to use it for GOOD. I’ve never been one to be a “news source”, but I see my reach and I know that this is important. If you have anything that needs to be shared, from people who need extra help, to creative ways to hang with your kids, please reach out to me and I will happily share. I’m also going to try and share mental health resources as well so we can all get through this together. •
Don’t panic, but take this social distancing seriously. There are neighbors of ours who aren’t as fortunate as you, so do this for them. Do your part. Lots of love ❤️ #JHStrong#jacksonhole
