Opinion: Sen. Ayer merits her fifth term

Posted on September 15, 2016 |
By Ellen Oxfeld



We have been very fortunate over the last eight years to have Senator Claire Ayer representing us in the State Senate. In her four terms, Senator Ayer has been an effective advocate for all of us, and on both health care and fiscal issues, Senator Ayer has been a legislative leader. Chairing the Senate Committee on Health and Welfare, she has championed health care reforms — always with an eye to making health care more accessible and affordable for the public.

Opinion: Bristol Rep. Baser shone in first two years

Posted on September 15, 2016 |
By Jim Douglas



In 2014, the voters of Bristol, Lincoln, Monkton and Starksboro elected an outstanding community leader, Fred Baser, to represent them in Montpelier. I am writing to urge them to re-elect him.

Fred has an impressive record of accomplishment in his first two years in Montpelier. He picked right up on the workings of Vermont state government. He listened, worked hard, asked a lot of questions and used good common sense as he navigated the many bills that went through his committee and onto the floor of the House.

Opinion: Ode to a covered bridge

Posted on September 15, 2016 |
By Frances Stone



A black skeleton spanning across Otter Creek,

Its former self gone,

In a blaze of fire encompassing its entire span.

Gone in an instant.

All that is left is that black skeleton.

And memories in all the people who crossed the bridge,

By car, truck, foot or bicycle,

Either daily or every now and then.

On its eastern side the road cut a straight line across the farm fields straight onto the bridge.

Sometimes the fields were full of water as the creek overflowed.

Matt Dickerson: On trout, new students and old memories

Posted on September 15, 2016 |
By Matt Dickerson



Thirty-five years ago this month, I headed off to college in a small, rural, New Hampshire town. I didn’t own a car and would go through my college career and most of my graduate school career without one. I didn’t even own a good bike until I purchased one before senior year so that I could participate in a 10-day, 500-mile bike trip to Nova Scotia with the college’s outing club.

Opinion: Bank settled for less when it comes to paint

Posted on September 15, 2016 |
By B. Landon



Such a disappointment arriving at the National Bank of Middlebury drive-up window today discovering that the recent uplifting spectacular recent paint scheme was now gone! Apparently some people complained about the new colors and suddenly it was painted all over again in the present non-feel-good scheme.

Wish those who did enjoy that spectacular paint scheme had an opportunity to register and compliment the bank about it. Surely that would have out-numbered the complainers. Too bad that a few can alter what the majority seems to be pleased about.
