Opera Review: Opera co. brings Puccini’s fairytale to life with 'impossibly beautiful' voices

Posted on June 4, 2015 |
By Nancy Maxwell



opera1087.jpg

Puccini’s last opera, the great “Turandot,” is a dark, Oriental fairytale with a riveting, contemporary, cinematic score. Perhaps knowing this would be his last work Puccini held nothing back and from the first moment the opera explodes with musical thrills and chills.

Voters send message, schools respond with difficult choices

Posted on June 3, 2015 |
By Angelo Lynn



Back on March 3, voters in Bristol and Vergennes sent clear messages to their respective union high school school boards to reduce school spending further than the budgets proposed at Town Meeting. Boards trimmed a little, but in subsequent votes in April, voters again rejected the Mount Abraham Union High School, as well as the VUHS budget. After further reductions in both budgets, voters go to the polls next week for a decisive third vote.

Jessie Raymond: Live, Love, Laugh at Pinterest

Posted on June 3, 2015 |
By Jessie Raymond



We’re getting ready to put in a mudroom at our house. Thank goodness I found Pinterest before we started.

Pinterest, if you haven’t heard of it, is a website that works like a virtual bulletin board, gathering images from across the web that you can “pin” to your own board, based on your interests — mudrooms, in my case.

Posted on June 3, 2015 |
By Evan Johnson



In my summers between college semesters I worked for a construction contractor in Southern Vermont, performing work that didn’t require much skill, so much as basic knowledge of what end of the hammer to hold.

Recent state budgets have been paying costs forward

Posted on June 3, 2015 |
By Angelo Lynn



When Governor Shumlin signed the $616 million transportation bill last week, he punctuated a hallmark of his administration: continued long-term investment in the state’s infrastructure that will lay the foundation for a better economy long after he has left office. The same could be said of gains made in early childhood education, cleaning up Vermont’s waterways and Lake Champlain, investing in renewable energy programs, aggressively addressing the state’s drug crisis and on and on.

The transportation bill is a case in point.

Airport criticism is exagerated

Posted on June 3, 2015 |
By Douglas Gurnee



Seriously? Anti-airport poetry? (See Letters, June 1.) I am a pilot and a good running Lycoming aircraft engine IS poetry.

I very much question the claims made of noise. The airplane makes some sound and it is gone in a few moments. I have never seen items thrown from window sills. If statements like this are to be believed then the state should require tangible proof of any such claims.
