By Angelo S. Lynn



These Olympic games may be the perfect distraction — and contrast — to the political embarrassment that has otherwise dominated the national news.

By Patricia Heather-Lea



Seventy-one years ago, the United States dropped an atomic bomb on Hiroshima on Aug. 6 and another on Nagasaki on Aug. 9.

I’d like to thank the many Middlebury citizens who voted for me in the primary election on Aug. 9. Your vote was important and helped me prevail in a close, two-seat race. The general election will also be a contested race with the same three people running. I hope you will vote for me again on Nov. 8. Thanks again for your support!
