Opinion: CVU football coach needs to take it down a notch

Posted on October 13, 2014 |
By Arthur C. Howard Sr.



I am a Middlebury Tiger football fan and what I saw at the game in Hinesburg against the Champlain Valley Union High School varsity team on Sept. 27 from their coach, Jim Provost, was entirely uncalled for.

Opinion: Sheldon and Nuovo deserve your vote in November

Posted on October 13, 2014 |
By Victoria DeWind



If you have not voted already, when you consider how to use your two votes for our Middlebury representatives to Montpelier, I ask you to consider voting for Amy Sheldon and Betty Nuovo.

I have known Amy for all the years since she was executive director of the Middlebury Area Land Trust. It was her initiative and care for our community then that both founded our commitment to conserve our working landscape and brought the Trail Around Middlebury (TAM) into being — one of our best assets.

Opinion: Send Smiley to the Vermont House

Posted on October 13, 2014 |
By Bob Zeliff



Why we should support Susan Smiley for Representative for Bridport, New Haven and Weybridge:

Many know Susan from her civic activities. From her family farm in New Haven she and her family were producing agricultural products and selling them locally way before Farm to Table became well known. In fact, she has been an active member of several organizations that have made locally sourced food as relevant and popular as it has become. This is forward thinking in action.

Greg Dennis: Dial 'stolen phone' for aggravation

Posted on October 8, 2014 |
By Greg Dennis



I knew as soon as I walked back into the office that there was a problem.

I had two of the big three — my wallet and keys. But I couldn’t locate my iPhone.

After several frantic searches of the car, I called the café where I’d been sitting outside while I worked on email and quaffed a coffee. They checked the tables where I’d been sitting and didn’t see the phone.

Opinion: Mt. Abe doesn't need a $33 million fix

Posted on October 8, 2014 |
By Bill Coon



When it comes to the November bond vote for the proposed renovations to Mount Abraham Union High School, it is time to say NO.

I went to the one of the open house tours and discussion sessions this past summer, and found the school in much better condition than expected. Yes, there are some issues to address, but not $33 million worth.

Opinion: NIMBY-ism a foe of green energy

Posted on October 8, 2014 |
By Eric Hanson



I could not disagree more with some recent letters to the editor regarding solar power development in Vermont. We are so used to living lives with our power being generated at distant power plants that are out of sight and out of mind that we tend to forget that any form of energy production has its adverse impacts.
