Between the Lines: Tree house, once upon a time

Posted on November 3, 2011 |
By Greg Dennis



A few months ago, I was asked by an editor at the college’s “Middlebury Magazine” to write about a tree house that had been constructed during our college years. That piece appears in the current issue of the magazine. Because it’s a story I’ve also wanted to tell in this space, I’ve adapted the magazine account for today’s column.

Clippings: Fed action would leave citizens in the dark

Posted on November 3, 2011 |
By Andrew Stein



After months of grueling debate matched by great compromise, the writing of the U.S. Constitution came to a close in September 1787. As a framework for just governance, it was based as much on established principle as it was on experimentation, relying heavily on the virtue and will of the American people. The proposed system bestowed enough power in the people for them to stake a claim to their future, if they chose to.

Politically Thinking: McDonald a viable state candidate

Posted on October 27, 2011 |
By Eric L. Davis



Pat McDonald, the chair of the Vermont Republican Party, could well be the Republican candidate for governor in 2012. While she has not yet declared her candidacy, many Republicans are urging McDonald to enter the race. The other Republicans who have been mentioned as gubernatorial candidates have either not shown interest in a 2012 campaign (Brian Dubie and Randy Brock), or have decided to seek re-election to their current position (Tom Salmon).

Clippings: Law must keep pace with the cloud

By Andrea Suozzo



If you own a computer in this day and age, chances are you’re storing information in the cloud.

Let me rephrase: If you’ve ever shared photos on Facebook, ever sent an email using Gmail, Hotmail or Yahoo, or ever transferred files using Dropbox, you have information stored on any number of third-party servers around the globe — termed “the cloud.”

Clippings: Speech is protected, but jobs aren't

Posted on October 20, 2011 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



 

Are you ready for some free speech?

Well, within limits. I would like to keep my job, be it ever so humble and modestly paid.

Well, I could just about stop there, and that would sum up the kerfuffle earlier this month about ESPN’s decision to remove Hank Williams Jr. and his trademark “Are you ready for some football?” opening from its Monday Night Football program.

Around the Bend: 'Touch' of technology doesn't help

Posted on October 20, 2011 |
By Jessie Raymond



Not long ago, I received a free hand-me-down iPod Touch. I was thrilled, not only because it had originally retailed for about $200 but also because I had never owned such a sleek, technologically advanced gadget. (Keep in mind I think remote car starters are magic; I thrill easily.)

But once I got over the simple elegance of the smooth flat screen, I honestly couldn’t think of a single reason to have it.

Between the Lines: Small-town life is a cut above

Posted on October 20, 2011 |
By Greg Dennis



Ken Jenks is the physician’s assistant at a medical clinic in Nucla, Colo.

Jenks, who appears in a compelling “New Yorker” profile of Nucla’s druggist, Don Colcord, grew up in Salt Lake City. But he’s become a connoisseur of small towns.

Living in a small town, he says, means giving people more latitude.

Politically Thinking: Risk to Vt. in 2012 is a GOP sweep

Posted on October 13, 2011 |
By Eric L. Davis



Gov. Shumlin and Vermont’s Democratic legislative majorities do not need to be overly concerned about re-election in 2012. However, they do face a major political risk next year: the impacts of Republican control of both the presidency and Congress on Vermont’s fiscal policy.

Clippings: Trying to play ball with today's teens

Posted on October 13, 2011 |
By Andrew Stein



Two weeks ago the Addison Central Teen Center in Middlebury almost had to close for a routine board meeting. The number of volunteers is so low that the director wasn’t going to be able to staff the center during the board’s meeting he was to attend.

So when my fiancée Mairead, who regularly volunteers there, asked me to help out, I said, “Sure, why not?”

Clippings: Local paddlers test the waters

Posted on October 6, 2011 |
By Christian Woodard



We’re all a little hydro-phobic after Irene. If you live near a river, if your septic system erupted through the yard or if your satellite dish is on its way to the middle stratosphere, you know what I mean. You cringe when the toilet flushes, and sleep with an inflatable dolphin.
