Letter to the Editor: Citizens have responsibility to be informed on civic matters

Posted on November 30, 2017 |
By Sharon Compagna



I am continually reading about folks thinking particular items are “fast tracked,” which hints at something illegal or underhanded. The selectboard publishes their agenda and minutes openly and the natural gas issue was discussed several times over the last few years. An agreement was entered into before I even got off the board.

Letter to the Editor: What about a 'no confidence vote' on Trump?

Posted on November 30, 2017 |
By Pat Ullom



Donald Trump has a disapproval rating of approximately 70 percent of the American public. He has no interest, knowledge, or regard for the Constitution, Democracy or the Rule of Law. He has proven himself to be corrupt, a habitual liar, and a self-centered, out his control child with no interest or compassion for human life. His adolescent insults and criticisms of people and world leaders makes him an embarrassment and a danger to the world.

Letter to the Editor: Loss of street events lamented

Posted on November 30, 2017 |
By Bill Biederman



So sorry to hear about the cancelling of the Chili Festival on Main Street in Middlebury. It had always been a great way to see neighbors and friends and to see the students from the college downtown enjoying themselves. They cancelled the beer festival a few years back and that was another event that brought people downtown and in from other places in Vermont. These were both events that were good for the members of the community and gave the town of Middlebury some exposure to folks that were otherwise just driving through.

Letter to the Editor: Small schools vital to towns

Posted on November 30, 2017 |
By Olga Pschorr



We all have a story to tell. Please tell me your story. I’ll keep it in mind, I’ll hold it close, when I’m seated next to you at the next Otter Valley Unified Union School Board meeting. I am a Vermonter and a taxpayer. In case you missed it, you are invited to public forums on Nov. 30 and Dec. 5 at OVUHS as part of a democratic process to voice your thoughts on how schools are to be configured and funded.

Letter to the Editor: Voiding of insurance requirement latest attack on ACA?

Posted on November 30, 2017 |
By Peter Grant



Republicans want to stop the requirement that all have health insurance. Insuring as many in a market is a concept that has been used for centuries. A bigger coverage area spreads the cost around to make it cheaper for everyone including those who actually suffer a “peril” or have to get an insurance payout. Insurers who covered floods and disasters are facing a disaster as not enough customers have paid in to cover all the disasters.

Middlebury theatre department presents Will Eno's 'Middletown'

Posted on November 30, 2017 |
By Addison Independent



n Middlebury theatre dept Mtown.jpg

The Middlebury College Department of Theatre will continue its 2017-18 theatre season on November 30 with Will Eno’s 2010 play, “Middletown,” directed by Alex Draper.

Inspired by “Our Town,” the play, according to the New York Times, is a “delicate, moving and wry amble along the collective road to nowhere,” and one “that glimmers from start to finish with tart, funny, gorgeous little comments on big things: the need for love and forgiveness, the search for meaning in life, and the long, lonely ache of disappointment.”
