BRISTOL — A noticeable rise in armed robberies, burglaries and drug-related crimes have plagued Bristol this past year.

To identify the problems behind these crimes and find solutions, more than 100 citizens, law enforcement officials and social workers packed into the muggy basement of Bristol’s St. Ambrose Church on Tuesday evening. While police officers did not quantify the increase in local drug activity, those in attendance agreed that Bristol and Addison County have a drug problem, and it’s getting worse.

Posted on August 2, 2012 |
By Angelo Lynn



Vermont’s Sen. Bernie Sanders made national news this week when he tweeted that six members of the Walton family, which owns Walmart, own more wealth than the bottom 40 percent of Americans. Politifact, a non-partisan fact-checking institute that focuses on American politics, decided to check it out to see if the proverbially progressive Independent was on target or exaggerating for effect.

Editorial: Romney sends sour message

Posted on August 2, 2012 |
By Angelo Lynn



Talk about making lemonade out of lemons. Mitt Romney’s trip abroad was an unmitigated disaster, giving his message handlers a tall order to fill — and not just because of his verbal gaffes. 

Romney started off the trip by insulting the British and the London Olympic committee to no recognizable purpose, when it would have been so easy, and politic, to be polite (and silently helpful if he thought criticism could have been constructive.)

Clippings: Olympics 2012 are sports at their best

Posted on August 2, 2012 |

I knew the American Fab Five would win the women’s gymnastics title at the Olympics several hours before watching some of the action on television Tuesday evening. And I knew Michael Phelps would surpass the Olympic medal count on Tuesday by reaching 19, but fall short in the 200-meter fly by five-hundredths of a second.

FERRISBURGH — A Burlington man with ties to Ferrisburgh on Monday was officially charged with second-degree murder for taking the life of Conrad Bell, 40, of Vergennes during a confrontation at a Ferrisburgh bonfire just before midnight on July 27.

At a Monday afternoon arraignment in Rutland Superior Court, Joseph Bolduc, 25, pleaded innocent to that charge as well as a number of other charges stemming from the aftermath of an incident in which Vermont State Police allege Bolduc struck Bell with a tire iron in the neck at least twice and caused his death.

Between the Lines: Lessons learned in 20 years of living

Posted on August 2, 2012 |
By Greg Dennis



On the verge of turning 60, I find that I’ve learned a few things. Here are some of them:

In the face of all the misery in this world, I don’t know of a better response than to try to be happy. And while I admire people who sacrifice their own happiness to make the world a better place, I think a wiser choice is to work both on giving something back and on developing one’s own inner happiness. The responsibility goes outward and inward.
