Fall changes in Vermont worth noting

Posted on September 17, 2009 |
By Matt Dickerson



The gifted songwriters Linford Detweiler and Karin Bergquist (collectively known as the band “Over The Rhine”), begin their song “Changes Come” with the simple observation, “Changes come / Turn my world around.”

Changes do come. I find the changes especially noticeable in the autumn. Weather changes. Daylight hours change — and in September they change rapidly. Our daily routines changes as vacations end and kids head back to school.

Of fathers, sons and their coaches

Posted on September 10, 2009 |
By Karl Lindholm



My son Peter is 14 and in the ninth grade. He has decided to play football this year on the Middlebury Union High School freshman team. I hope he’s a better player than I was.

My dad, Peter’s Granpa, was a genuinely good football player, captain of the 1934 Bates College team, when football was king on college campuses and players were Big Men on Campus. He is a member of the Maine State Football Hall of Fame, among other gridiron honors, and still attends Bates’ games in the fall, at age 98, when the weather allows. He loved the hurly-burly of the game.

Home: Somewhere over the rainbow

Posted on September 3, 2009 |
By Matt Dickerson



“There’s no place like home.”

That was the message from “The Wizard of Oz.” And what was true for Dorothy is sometimes also true of fishing. For all of the fun of traveling and exploring new fishing spots (like, for example, Alaska), there is something quite enjoyable about returning home to a favorite river — a river I know well, whose insect hatches I have fished, whose seasons and personalities I have become familiar with.

Playing field now more level for MUHS teams

Posted on August 27, 2009 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



This school year will see almost all Middlebury Union High School sports competing at the Division II level, with the exceptions being field hockey and both lacrosse teams.

Other Tiger athletic programs are already in D-II, including basketball, soccer and boys’ cross-country. Still other girls’ programs are now technically in D-I, but are in the process of being moved to D-II, according to MUHS activities director Sean Farrell. Because the numbers are within appeal guidelines, Farrell expects the Vermont Principals’ Association to OK the changes.

Angling near Anchorage

Alaska is big. It has lots of mountains. The mountains are big, too. So are the lakes and rivers. Enormous. Loads of them. Everywhere. As for the vast quantity of small and medium-size creeks, streams, lakes and ponds, it is hard to fathom until you come and take a look.

Fishing for halibut

Posted on August 13, 2009 |
By Matt Dickerson



I’m going to visit my brother Ted in Alaska. We’re planning to go fishing. I expect we’ll have an “adventure.” My trips with Ted seem to produce more adventure than we want.

There was the time he got me lost “guiding” me on a trip to a remote trout stream on a huge Maine lake that stretches for miles and has no houses. And the time he got me onto a glacier in the Rockies above the timberline and conjured up a hailstorm. These adventures with Ted sometimes leave me questioning his sanity. That I continue to go with him also leaves me questioning my own.

Legacy of a coach, husband and fisherman

Posted on August 6, 2009 |
By Karl Lindholm



It was a surprise when my sister married the football coach in 1969, given the gadabouts in her life before Jim. She was living and working as a photographer in Cambridge, Mass., a haven for rebels, radicals and rascals of all shapes and sizes at that strange time. Jim was coaching football at Harvard when they met and he was fishing a lot. All he had to his name were an old Land Rover and two canoes.

Taking them out to the Sox game

By Andy Kirkaldy
Fenway Park didn’t look much different when I went there on July 7 for the first time in 26 years. Sure, under the new Boston Red Sox ownership the old ball yard is clean and shiny, and the signs — literally and figuratively — of corporate America are everywhere.

But one gets used to being bombarded with advertising, and logos of all sizes crammed into Fenway’s every nook and cranny have little impact on the essence of the House That Ruth Left.

Vermont rainscapes

Posted on July 23, 2009 |
By Matt Dickerson



It was just a year ago around this time that I was writing some summer columns about beautiful Vermont sunsets enjoyed on evening canoe trips around various Vermont lakes, especially Dunmore and Champlain. This summer, instead of enjoying the bright colors of sunsets over distant landscapes, I am enjoying many shades of gray rain clouds. Let’s call them rainscapes.

Angler stumbles upon mythic beaver dam

By MATT DICKERSON
In ancient Greek, the words “muthos” (a forerunner of the modern English word “myth”) and “logos” (related to our word “logic”) were almost interchangeable; both meant something like “an account of the truth.” Over time, “muthos” came to mean an account of truth through story. Then Plato started using the word “muthos” to mean something fictional, or untrue. Oddly enough, however, even Plato used myths to communicate his most important philosophical truths.
