Ways of Seeing: Flag and mural are reminders of justice

Posted on February 15, 2018 |
By Joanna Colwell



Valentine’s Day falls smack in the middle Black History Month, and the state of Vermont started things off right with a historic raising of the Black Lives Matter flag at Montpelier High School. Although the student body of Montpelier High is only five percent Black, the school board voted unanimously to support the student-led Racial Justice Alliance in their efforts to increase racial awareness at the mostly white school.

By Gregory Dennis

Victor Nuovo: Creating equality

Posted on February 15, 2018 |
By Victor Nuovo



Editor’s note: This is the fourth in a series of essays about political liberalism and conservatism.

When I finished the previous essay, I realized that I was not finished with Rousseau or “The Social Contract.” This goes without saying; one can never be finished with a work of genius, which this surely is. My purpose is more modest. In the previous essay, the question was how to preserve individual liberty in society. There remain to be considered the great themes of equality and public morality, about which Rousseau has important things to say.

VERGENNES — A Monday boys’ basketball game at Vergennes Union High School might have looked like a mismatch on paper. The visiting Otter Valley team was fresh off a huge win over the top team in Division II and the host Commodore squad was coming off a 27-point setback to Mount Abraham.

Instead, the 9-6 Otters found themselves in a battle with the 3-10 Commodores, who fought back from 15 points down early in the third period to within five late in the fourth before the Otters held on for a 51-45 victory.

By Addison Independent



WATERVILLE, Maine — The Middlebury College women’s hockey team swept a weekend series from host Colby to improve to 15-4-2 overall and 12-1-1 in NESCAC play. The Panthers clinched a tie for first place in the league in the process.

Middlebury, ranked No. 4 in NCAA Division III, close out the regular season by visiting Williams on Friday at 7 p.m. and then hosting the Ephs on Saturday at 7 p.m. A win or a tie in either of those games will give Middlebury home ice throughout the NESCAC playoffs, which will begin the following weekend.
