Letter to the Editor: Embracing change the key to reaching our potential

Posted on November 30, 2017 |
By Matthew Gorton



Change, what the hell is it? Whelp, change, by definition, it is the ability to adapt to new things. It is inevitable; so why do we try to resist it? Without change, we would still be stuck in the Stone Age, chucking spears at each other. Change allows for growth, and it allows us to further ourselves from the primitive world. It has allowed us to master our minds and our planet. Eventually, it will allow us to master our universe. Those who fear change are stuck in the past, they are afraid to spread their wings and soar.

Letter to the Editor: Maybe Middlebury's approach would work at Mount Abe

Posted on November 30, 2017 |
By Ian Ross



My family moved to Middlebury in 1994 where I then attended MUJHS (grade 7-8) and MUHS (grade 9-12) in one building for 6 years. As a teenage student new to the area I was oblivious to the plans for improving the school setting for Addison Central students until the work was nearly starting. I went on summer vacation after 8th grade, and returned to a very changed and still changing high school. MUMS was due to be completed for the next school year. Looking back, the project, while expansive, apparently did not cover all potential concerns in the building.

Letter to the Editor: Veterans' group works for peace

Posted on November 30, 2017 |
By Patricia Heather-Lea



Armistice:  “A pause in a war, brought about by agreement between the two sides; a truce”  (Webster’s Elementary Dictionary, 1941).

An armistice was signed at the 11th hour, on the 11th day, of the 11th month, 1918 to mark the end of World War I. In 1926, the United States Congress “passed a resolution for an annual observance” of Armistice Day. Twelve years later, the United States Congress passed the Act of 1938. November 11th was “dedicated to the cause of world peace”.

Politically Thinking, Eric L. Davis: Trump making impact on judiciary

Posted on November 30, 2017 |
By Eric L. Davis



President Trump and Congress have yet to enact any major bills in 2017, although that could change once the legislative process on taxes runs its course. They also face upcoming deadlines to continue federal spending authority after Dec. 8, to develop policy for several hundred thousand undocumented residents brought to the United States as children, and to reauthorize the State Children’s Health Insurance Program, known in Vermont as Dr. Dynasaur.

Ways of Seeing, Barbara Clearbridge: Transforming conflict with love

Posted on November 30, 2017 |
By Barbara “Shulamith” Clearbridge



This is a small story about a small thing that made a big difference.

When I was in my late 30’s I attended a three-week workshop about living a spiritually based life. There was a fellow there who I didn’t want anything to do with. I found him abrasive and disruptive to the workshop and didn’t believe he belonged there. I was unable even to respect him or honor his spiritual path.

Community Forum, Brian Shupe: Investing in Vermont's outdoor recreation economy means acting on climate

Posted on November 30, 2017 |
By Brian Shupe



This week’s community forum is by Brian Shupe, Vermont Natural Resources Council executive director, and Tom Stuessy, Vermont Mountain Bike Association executive director.

As children, many of us spend fun-filled hours learning to first ride a bicycle, then to ride it well. The roots and rocks of Vermont trails provide the perfect training ground for learning to go bigger, jump a little higher, and move a little faster year after year.
