Jessie Raymond: Growing flax puts new spin on linen

Posted on April 12, 2018 |
By Jessie Raymond



jessenew ONLINE.jpg

This year, I’m growing flax. Not for flowers, not for flaxseed, but for fiber to make linen; you know, like they did in the olden days.

Humor me. This is the kind of thing I do.

I’ve always had this weird fascination with learning obsolete skills once used on the homestead.  According to my psychic, this isn’t surprising; in a past life I was assistant manager of the Sturbridge Village gift shop.

Greg Dennis: A bolt from the (Chevy) blue

Posted on April 12, 2018 |
By Greg Dennis



Dennis, Greg ONLINE.jpg

If you believe, as many of us do, that climate change means our children will live in a more dangerous and chaotic world, then at some point you’ve got to look in the mirror and wonder about the car you’re driving.

Transportation accounts for Vermont’s greatest contribution to climate change. Carbon pollution from cars and (especially) trucks means that for every historically destructive hurricane — think Puerto Rico — every driver is driving those storms to be a little bigger.

Ways of Seeing: Internet has changed curating rules

Posted on April 12, 2018 |
By Kate Gridley



Gridley, Kate - Ways of Seeing 2016.jpg

Language evolves. You can find any number of interesting articles on words whose meanings have changed radically over time (“awful,” “clue,” “naughty,” are good examples). With the Internet insinuating itself into most aspects of our lives, slews of words have changed in the brief span of pre-internet time to internet-now: “troll,” “ping,” “handle,” “cloud,” “catfish,” “tablet,” “pad” come to mind.

“Curate” is the word on my mind today.

Victor Nuovo: Condorcet: A Tale of Two Revolutions

Posted on April 12, 2018 |
By Victor Nuovo



Nuovo, Victor ONLINE.jpg

Editor’s note: This is the tenth in a series of essays about political liberalism and conservatism and the two-party system.

Condorcet, a leading philosopher in the French Revolution, believed that he was living in a revolutionary age — the “rights of man,” of life, liberty, equality and property had so caught fire in the minds of people that they could no longer ignore or endure the oppressive wrongs of their governments.

Letter to the editor: Assault weapons aren't 'Vt. way'

Posted on April 12, 2018 |
By Beth Ekroos



I am a teacher in an Addison County school. I come from two very large families that needed hunting and nature to sustain them. I am familiar with guns and know how to shoot them. My founding families did not need assault weapons to put food on their table. If you feel that you need assault weapons to provide for your family maybe you need glasses and shouldn’t be driving, as well.

Assault weapons is not the Vermont way. I did not become a teacher to be able to carry weapon to work.

Letter to the editor: Wedding article unfair to singles

Posted on April 12, 2018 |
By Brenda Ellis



I am so offended by the article “What’s the etiquette when inviting singles to your wedding?” in the most recent “Wedding Planner,” that I feel compelled to write this letter. 

Why the need to treat single people differently than couples? Why would you want to make your single friends/family members feel “othered,” to feel like they are not as valued as married guests?

Letter to the editor: Is it now time for 'fair-trade milk'?

Posted on April 12, 2018 |
By Randy Kritkausky



Thank you for giving James Maroney the space needed to make a very well documented argument for transitioning to organic milk production in Vermont.

It appears that milk pricing at the farm gate is the great unknown and unsolved problem even in the world James imagines. Perhaps we need to recognize that the market economy is simply not able to currently solve this problem, absent a quota system as in Canada.
