RIPTON — Acclaimed writer and activist Rick Bass sparked a lively discussion about activism, the environment, and the justice system when he gave a lecture titled “The Joy of Being Arrested” at Middlebury College’s Bread Loaf campus this past Thursday morning.

Bass told the story of being arrested when he zip-tied himself to the gates of the White House to protest the Keystone XL pipeline the day after President Obama’s State of the Union address in February 2013.

BRISTOL/MIDDLEBURY — As a student at Middlebury College, Gertrude Lathrop helped pay tuition by working as a waitress and house cleaner.

“Jobs were scarce,” she recalled in a recent interview at her home in Bristol.

The state of the job market should not be surprising, since Lathrop attended the college from 1930 to 1934, the height of the Great Depression.

Greg Dennis: At a college reunion, ghosts of present and past

Posted on June 12, 2014 |
By Greg Dennis



A woman takes her seat for a long train ride in a foreign country. She’s a plant biologist who travels the world to study and document rare plant species. It’s one more trip among many.

For the past two years, since her husband Michael died, she’s been traveling even more. Sometimes staying ahead of the pain, sometimes just learning to live with it. (This is a true story, though the names and some details have been changed to protect the principals’ identities.)

MIDDLEBURY — A lot of first jobs after college aren’t exactly glamorous. Barista. Retail sales. Or the two most depressing words to a 22-year-old’s ear — unpaid internship.

“Creator of software startup with the potential to corner a gigantic, untapped market of consumers” is not a job listing likely to be found on Craigslist (if it is, don’t click on it; it’s probably spam).
