Karl Lindholm: Celebrating my reverse bucket list

Posted on August 31, 2017 |
By Karl Lindholm



Karl Lindholm pitching n coach .jpg

I was able to check off one of the items on my Sports Bucket List this summer:

I played golf on the Poland Spring Golf Course in Maine with my close childhood friend Johnny Mauro, whom I hadn’t seen in years — and with Gary and Bill who I last saw in high school long ago.

“That’s it?” I can hear you saying to yourself. “Golf in Maine with old buddies? What’s so special about that?”

Letters to the Editor: Time to chip in for Open Door Clinic

Posted on August 31, 2017 |
By Patricia Heather-Lea



I read about the need of the Open Door Clinic in your Aug. 24 edition.

They need to fill a shortfall of $62,000. I believe that there are enough individuals or service minded groups in our communities who can chip in. Some simple math: 620 X 100 = 62,000.

Here is the name and address to which you can send the check: Open Door Clinic, 100 Porter Drive, Middlebury, VT  05753.

Thank you for your generosity.

Letters to the Editor: Co-housing acted unneighborly

Posted on August 31, 2017 |
By Ginny Vautier



I live on Mountain View St., the new driveway to the “Co-Housing Development.” After a year of putting up with huge construction vehicles, mud, dirt, dust, my lawn torn up for new water pipes and sink holes that are still happening near my driveway, I now have an issue with it.

Poem: At the Middlebury Dog Park

Posted on August 31, 2017 |
By Gary Margolis



What joy unleashed, seeing

you here again, late

in the afternoon, after work.

 

So we can say hello,

front to end. Let out

of our cooped-up houses

 

and apartments. Owned

and for a moment freed.

To feel like ourselves.

 

Breeding and not bred.

Writing our names in pee.

Covering each other’s crap

 

with our own. To say

remember who we are.

Friends-in-the world

Successful bear hunters must submit animal's teeth

Posted on August 31, 2017 |
By Addison Independent



n Bear tooth.jpg

MONTPELIER — The Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department is reminding successful bear hunters that a regulation now requires them to submit a bear tooth so wildlife managers can collect important information on Vermont’s bear population.

Teeth submitted by hunters are used to determine the ages of bears. Wildlife biologists use age and sex data to estimate the number of bears in Vermont and to determine the status and health of the bear population. Envelopes for submitting teeth are available at all big game check stations.

Ways of Seeing, Johanna Nichols: Facing fear, anxiety are part of life's journey

Posted on August 31, 2017 |
By Johanna Nichols



I am a person who likes to plan for all contingencies. It supports my illusion that I am in control. My daughters know this about me. They know the anxiety that has been passed down the generations like family china. That’s why they chose for me a gift of a silver necklace with natural stones.

Victor Nuovo: Locke & Hobbes, the origin of civil society

Posted on August 31, 2017 |
By Victor Nuovo



Editor’s note: This is the 22nd essay by Middlebury College Professor Emeritus Victor Nuovo on the origins of western political thought.

How did civil society or the civil state begin? There is general agreement that a civil state is not a product of nature, but something made by human art, the art of politics. This is what Hobbes believed and affirmed in the memorable sentence that begins his great work, Leviathan:
