Around the bend: Home brewing leads to 'ale-itism'

Posted on March 24, 2011 |
By Jessie Raymond



 

This winter, I made my first batch of home-brewed beer. I only wish I had done it sooner.

Until a few months ago, I never thought of beer as something you could make yourself. Then I heard a radio show about home brewing and learned that (a) beer does not, as I had always vaguely assumed, come directly from some stream in Latrobe, Pa., and (b) making your own beer is a relatively simple process, requiring little equipment and only a few ingredients.

Renewed look at building new town office in Midd prompts review of priorities

Posted on March 24, 2011 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



The revived effort to conceptualize a new town office building for Middlebury has two apparent goals: to tear down much of the existing building and replace it with a smaller, more modern and efficient office space, and — by doing so — save on fuel costs.

Middlebury residents rejected a proposal in 2002 for a $6 million proposal that called for a 13,982-square-foot, two-story structure on the same site. That proposal would have incorporated the town police headquarters and kept the existing municipal gymnasium.

Posted on March 21, 2011 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



The growing crisis at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station in Japan highlights several important considerations Vermonters must ponder concerning the Vermont Yankee nuclear plant in southern Vermont.

First, we must determine whether the plant’s age warrants extension of its license due to expire in 2012.

Clippings: Daylight Saving Time has expired

Posted on March 17, 2011 |
By John Flowers



Founding father Benjamin Franklin — what a guy. He came up with a lot of neat ideas, including bifocals, the lightning rod and the stove that bears his name. In his spare time, he was an author, printer, politician, postmaster and scientist.

But every March, I wish ol’ Ben had been flying his kite instead of brainstorming what I believe to be his most dubious contribution to society: Daylight Saving Time (DST) — setting the clock back one hour in the fall and forward one hour in the spring to maximize the availability of daylight.

Posted on March 17, 2011 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



Saturday’s Chili Festival in Middlebury drew a throng of about 3,500 people who enjoyed socializing on a closed Main Street while tasting more than 80 varieties of chili on a semi-raw, March day. It was, as coordinators of the event said, “an overwhelming success.”

Politically Thinking: GOP court likely to favor big spenders

Posted on March 17, 2011 |
By Eric L. Davis



In two weeks, the U.S. Supreme Court will hear oral argument in a case raising important First Amendment issues about public financing of political campaigns.

The case comes from Arizona. In the 1990s, many Arizona legislators faced civil and criminal charges involving campaign contributions from the gambling industry. In 1998, Arizona’s voters passed a referendum establishing a “Clean Elections” program that provides public funding to candidates for state offices who voluntarily limit the amount of money they raise in private donations.

Between the Lines: Tales of the recession — Vt. style

Posted on March 17, 2011 |
By Gregory Dennis



Barbara and Shawn Thompson-Snow used to think they could live out the American Dream.

With good jobs and college educations, in their early 50s they seemed set for a happy ending. Ahead of them stretched a few more years of full-time work — then the chance to cut back to part-time, to travel and enjoy life.

Five college loans later and with a second kid still in college, that now seems like a laughable fantasy. They might as well try flapping their arms and flying from their Lincoln home to the top of Mt. Abe.
