TRAVIS FORBES, VICE president of the Case Street Community Club, hands out a dish of maple syrup drizzled over snow during a sugar on snow party at the old Clinton Smith schoolhouse on Route 116 in Middlebury this past Saturday. The event, which included a bake sale and activities for kids, raised funds for upkeep of the historic building. The group says it will host monthly fundraisers to maintain the beautiful structure.

Clippings: Look for wind turbines in our future

Posted on January 3, 2013 |
By John McCright



Maybe you are like me, and when you see one of those huge wind generators rising above the landscape you enjoy the beauty of the design and the good feeling of knowing the power it produces is not contributing to global warming or despoiling nature.

Or, maybe you are like me, and when you see one or many of those huge wind generators looming above the landscape you are disquieted by the fear that these industrial hulks are diminishing the pristine views of our Green Mountains and despoiling the natural habitat in which they are raised.

Clippings: Look homeward for the holiday spirit

Posted on December 20, 2012 |
By John McCright



I try to start my Christmas shopping each year at the Peasant Market, which is the big flea market in July at St. Stephen’s on the green in Middlebury. There is always a lot of great stuff there — more stuff than I can reasonably justify buying at one time for the modest needs of me and my family. So a couple years ago I struck on the idea that I could pick up a few extra things beyond what would satisfy our immediate needs and desires and squirrel them away as Christmas gifts, or at least stocking stuffers.

Clippings: Coinage ready for a big comeback

Posted on December 6, 2012 |
By John McCright



My parents dubbed me “the little miser” when I was a child growing up during the 1960s — not because I didn’t like to share, but because I was constantly clutching my piggy bank. And because we were of modest means, there wasn’t much folding money in my bank, just a handful of coins to rattle around.

Clippings: The election is over, please shut up

Posted on November 8, 2012 |
By John McCright



I was driving into work on the morning after the election and I heard a Republican strategist on the radio asked about how the GOP needs to change to build a coalition that can win a presidential election. The guy stammered about Republican governors and the House of Representatives for a few minutes, then admitted that he didn’t know.

A pundit admitting that he didn’t know! I let out a big sigh; what a relief.
