Politically Thinking: British election both short, intense

Posted on May 13, 2010 |
By Eric L. Davis



I recently returned from a two-week trip to England, which coincided with the last two weeks of the British general election campaign. The British election presented some very interesting comparisons to an observer of American politics.

Clippings: Immigration hypocrisy must end

Posted on May 13, 2010 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



The entwined subjects of immigration and race have always hit home in our household.

Technically, I’m an immigrant, based on the laws in effect when I was 14 back in the late 1960s. My dad was born in England, my mom in Massachusetts, and I was born in England. I had to choose between England and the United States. I chose here; my dad already had.

My wife’s dad is also first-generation Irish, and one of our sisters-in-law is a first-generation immigrant. And let’s just say that our extended family is diverse.

Editorial: Good move, and none too soon

Posted on May 13, 2010 |
By Angelo Lynn



The Middlebury selectboard’s decision Tuesday night to create an ad hoc committee to study ways to boost the local economy is a welcome move that offers much potential, first by pushing more aggressively for economic development, and secondly, by doing more to help promote the town’s events and activities that helps keep Middlebury’s businesses vital and greatly enhances the town’s quality of life.

Nor is it a moment too soon.

Softball: Baseball for the girls

Posted on May 13, 2010 |
By Karl Lindholm



My daughter Annie, 12, has managed to resist the siren song of lacrosse in Middlebury and is playing seventh-grade softball this spring, under the tutelage of Brett Ringey, son of Mike — the patriarch of the Cornwall Ringeys, the first family of Addison County baseball (and now softball).

Mike has handed Annie the “tools of ignorance,” so now she is ensconced behind the plate as catcher. Her team, the Middlebury Union Middle School Tigers, have split their first two games, winning one and losing one.

Business looks good for Goodrich

Posted on May 13, 2010 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Goodrich Corp., which has a branch on Panton Road in Vergennes that is the city’s largest employer, in late April announced solid first-quarter results and a generally — if still cautiously — optimistic forecast for the balance of 2010.

The local plant, according to a corporate spokesman last month, is seeing an up-tick in business, and was seeking to fill 30 jobs, which he described as for “technicians and professional positions.”

On the Ball: Men’s lax wins; RPI next

As expected, the Middlebury College men’s lacrosse team held serve on Wednesday in the first round of the NCAA Division III tournament, defeating visiting Goucher, 10-6.

Before getting to details of that game, let’s look ahead: The 12-5 Panthers will visit 14-2 Rensselaer (to avoid typos henceforth referred to as RPI) on Saturday for a second-round match-up. The game is a rematch of an April 20 contest, also played in beautiful downtown Troy, N.Y., won by the Panthers, 9-6.

Clear the rink — it's roller derby time

Posted on May 10, 2010 |
By Kathryn Flagg

BRISTOL — Erin Swigart popped up onto the toe stops of her well-worn, broken-in roller skates. She dashed forward on tiptoe, almost like a dancer preparing for a ballet leap, and then the eight wheels on her skates hit the concrete floor of the Bristol Recreation Club’s hockey rink, and she was off.
