Opinion: 'Clippings' view well received

Posted on August 11, 2016 |
By Mike Sommers



Dear Addy Indy,

Thank you for Charmaine Lam’s July 14 Clippings commentary that explains how being asked “where are you from?” makes many people feel that they are perceived as foreign, not American, particularly if the person is not white. I have at least three friends who feel the exact same way.

Opinion: Cyclist thankful for safe drivers

Posted on August 11, 2016 |
By Patrick Berry



Most of the cycling I have done over the last 10 years has been along the roads of Salisbury, Leicester and Whiting, and I have found the people who travel those roads to be the most courteous drivers imaginable. The cars, farm vehicles and work trucks don’t just provide me the three-foot buffer required for cyclists, they give me 10 or 15 or whatever they can safely manage. There is rarely an exception. I just want to express my gratitude to the folks in those towns who graciously share the road. Yes, that’s me waving thank you every time you go by.

Karl Lindholm: 'A-ha! moments' and The Cuban Giants

Some time ago, spring 2003, I was doing research in the Sheldon Museum in town, looking at newspapers, the Middlebury Register, from the 1880s and ’90s.

I had been asked by Andy Wentink, the archivist at the Sheldon at the time, to prepare something on baseball as part of a series on Recreation and Leisure in Addison County in the 19th century.

It was interesting work, but something of needle-in-the-haystack research. I was looking for the earliest references to baseball in the Register.
