By Andy Kirkaldy



Before South Africa became a democracy, the band Johnny Clegg and Savuka created controversy not only because its members were both black and white when apartheid was still the law of the land, but also because it agitated for political change.

Here’s something scary: My family and I are the victims of some sort of odd home invaders. These weirdos haven’t taken anything, although they have hidden my keys and cell phone once or twice. But they’ve been here. Repeatedly.

It had been happening for quite some time but we’d been so busy all summer we just hadn’t noticed. Then, what with the dismal weather last weekend, I found myself inside all day for the first time in ages. I took a good look around the house, and what I saw horrified me.

Editorial: Fear in place of passion

Posted on October 11, 2012 |
By Angelo Lynn



In the wake of the first presidential debate, rank and file of the Democrats are likely less enamored with President Obama than they have been since his election four years ago. His lackluster performance in that debate, his failure to defend his policies and to point out obvious falsehoods by Mitt Romney have temporarily cost the president the enthusiastic support of his base.

Posted on October 11, 2012 |
By Angelo Lynn



The Middlebury selectboard’s decision to remove language in the town plan that caps retail stores at 50,000 square feet may be treading on a more slippery slope than they think. The board made the decision in a 4-1 vote Tuesday night, maintaining that the town is buying a little room to discuss the issue, which can later be confirmed within its zoning regulations.

BRANDON — Back on Sept. 27 in North Clarendon, the Mill River Union High School girls’ soccer team ripped off five straight goals in a 6-2 win over Otter Valley.

It was different on Monday on Markowski Field, where the improving Otters outshot the Minutemen, 28-19, in a 1-1 stalemate.

The Otters are still just 2-8-1, comparable to their records over the past few years, but senior leading scorer Lauren Nesshoever said that record does not reflect the quality of their play.
