Letter to the editor: Family thanks local firefighters

Posted on May 31, 2018 |
By Betty and Pieter Schiller



On May 16, our home in Weybridge sustained extensive damage from a fire. We write to express our most sincere thanks for the valiant efforts that members of the fire departments from Weybridge, Middlebury, Addison and New Haven made to deal with this unfortunate fire. We were travelling in Europe at the time of the fire but were kept informed by our two daughters, who travelled to Weybridge on the 17th, and by our good friend Ingrid Jackson who was at the house for much of the time on Wednesday.

By David Carlson



I think the train station/and or platform in Middlebury is an open discussion and all points of view should be considered.

For those who wish for a train station and actual Amtrak service in Middlebury, it may only be a wishful dream.

Letter to the editor: Scott 'childish' in veto actions

Posted on May 31, 2018 |
By Terry Racich



This is Vermont — where we have remarkable people in our legislature, who have worked with thorough and respectful diligence to form a responsible budget.

Gov. Scott’s childish and irresponsible veto is an embarrassment to us all. I have been frustrated that our elected officials, who, have worked so hard to come to an agreement on tough issues, and Scott and his administration have refused to work with our legislators before a bill is presented and just lazily vetoed.

MIDDLEBURY — Sometimes statistics can be misleading. But when a high school boys’ lacrosse team earns advantages of 29-9 in shots on goal and 43-19 in ground balls those numbers usually show it is carrying play and probably outhustling its opponent.

And in its first-round Division I playoff game on Tuesday, No. 8 Middlebury Union High School racked up those stats against No. 9 Mount Mansfield on the way to a convincing 11-5 victory, one that could have been bigger if not for the 18 saves racked up by senior Cougar goalie Ben Mutolo.
