Ways of Seeing: Seeing evil, good in pipeline battle

Posted on December 8, 2016 |
By Joanna Colwell



Why do we love stories of epic battles, good versus evil, Harry Potter and Dumbledore’s Army against Lord Voldemort? Is it because, in the realm of fiction and fantasy, things seem more clear cut, simpler, and it’s easier to tell which ones are the “good guys?”

Jessie Raymond: A Danish export worthy of support

Posted on December 8, 2016 |
By Jessie Raymond



Winter’s here, and it’s time to get your hygge on — unless you’re already wearing it.

Just kidding. Hygge is not an article of clothing. It’s a state of mind. In Denmark, at least.

Before we go into what hygge is, let’s talk about how it’s pronounced. It doesn’t sound like “higgy” or “high-ga” or “hig.” It sounds more like “heurgha,” as if spoken in the voice of the Swedish Chef from the Muppets.

Letter to the editor: Trump creating bigger 'swamp'

Posted on December 8, 2016 |
By Peter Grant



Trump said he would drain the swamp in Washington. We are watching as he creates a newer and bigger swamp. Watch as he appoints alligators to guard hen houses. He reads alt news with its made up stories. We find that a town in Moravia was paid to set up websites to spread false stories about Hillary. Poor Hillary probably didn’t even know since she surely didn’t read such things as Breitbart, with so many important things to do.

Posted on December 8, 2016 |
By Thomas Vanacore



Mr. Dennis rightly identifies the economy as an important aspect of policy discussion about climate change. However, there is a fundamental misunderstanding about the timeframe in which economic loss will impact people resulting from the effects of climate change.

Letter to the editor: Christmas spirit can endure well beyond Dec. 25

Posted on December 8, 2016 |
By Brian J. Bauer



Driving home on the Northway the other day, I was getting tired of hearing ads promoting the use of more plastic money; songs supposedly representative of a season, but more so a performer’s take on updating a past favorite; radio personalities editorializing about their take on election results and what the future will bring. I zoned out for a while, thinking of seasons past. I remembered someone saying “It’s too bad summer is gone” and replying that “It does not have to be!”

Editorial: Trump's mixed messages are all about showmanship

Posted on December 8, 2016 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



What does it say when President-elect Donald Trump invites Al Gore for a visit to talk about climate change on Monday, then on Wednesday nominates Scott Pruitt to head the Environmental Protection Agency? What does it say when he calls the president of Taiwan in a direct affront to China, and then says it was all just an off-handed phone call instigated by Taiwan — even if he knows that is an outright lie?
