Matt Dickerson: On trout and self-sacrifice

Posted on September 21, 2017 |
By Matt Dickerson



Dickerson, Matt ONLINE.jpg

A little more than 28 years ago I arrived in Addison County, moved into a new home in Bristol, and began my job at Middlebury College. I was relatively newly wed and still adjusting to married life. I’d never held a full-time teaching position, and had never owned a home. Though both of my wife’s parents had been born in Vermont, I had never lived in the state. It was a time of transition and uncertainties.

Editorial: Trumpcare II — An inevitable race to the bottom for nation's healthcare

Posted on September 21, 2017 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



Anyone who has read anything about the Republicans latest plan to repeal Obamacare understands that at its core the plan cuts government spending on health care between 2020 and 2026, when the funding allotted in the current proposal would cease — and, we suppose, a new bill would need to be passed to supplement spending by the states, or a whole new system (Bernie’s Medicare-for-all should be popular by then) will be put into place.

Letters to the Editor: Public safety is a red herring in marijuana debate

Posted on September 21, 2017 |
By Alison Nihart



At its September 26 meeting, the Middlebury Selectboard will vote on whether to endorse a Vermont League of Cities and Towns (VLCT) lobbying position related to marijuana legalization. Based on what I saw in the video of the September 12 Selectboard meeting, it does not appear that the Selectboard members have reviewed the legislation currently under consideration in the Vermont Statehouse. I hope that before they take that vote, they consider whether these bills address the town’s needs and concerns.

Letters to the Editor: Proposed Ilsley Library project should be scaled back

Posted on September 21, 2017 |
By Sheila Khalladeh



Let me add my support to Janine McDonald’s letter about the proposed renovation of the Ilsley Library.

I accept that there is need for updating and remodeling parts of this old building, but the planned budget of almost $10 million seems to include some unnecessarily “great things” and it would surely be better to scale back both the changes and the cost? I agree with Ms. McDonald that bigger is not necessarily better. Of course, I admit I’m biased — I appreciate books, not technology.
