Letter to the editor: McCain leaves a lasting legacy

Posted on August 30, 2018 |
By Diana Cotter



America lost a man of great integrity and strong principles, a genuine hero and a patriotic American on Friday with the passing of John McCain. As a progressive Democrat I did not often agree with his positions on the issues but I respected them and celebrated the fundamental right we have to disagree. If our democracy is to remain healthy we must have principled disagreements and we must be able to compromise. Compromise is not a dirty word but rather part of the foundation of our republic.

Letter to the editor: Jerome supported for House seat

Posted on August 30, 2018 |
By Larry and Nancy Rowe



Election season is upon us and it is time to think about how we are going to vote and what informs that decision. Party affiliation is not persuasive for us in the voting booth. Rather, we focus on the issues, the character, conduct and background of the candidates, and which person we judge has the best qualities to build relationships with colleagues to get things done. In the case of the State House seat for Brandon, Pittsford and Sudbury we support Stephanie Jerome.

BRISTOL — Mount Abraham Union High School administrators did not have to look far and wide for a new program head when boys’ soccer coach Mike Corey stepped down last winter after leading the program since 1995.

New varsity coach Bob Russell, a Mount Abe middle school social studies teacher, was not a surprising choice: He had coached the Eagle boys’ junior varsity team for several years, and before then the 8th-grade boys for several more.

Karl Lindholm: Imperfect perfection — it ain't fair!

Karl Lindholm col Ruth Shore sitting online.jpg

Imagine this baseball game:

The first batter of the game walks on four pitches. The pitcher who issued the walk is outraged by the umpire’s calls. They exchange words and the pitcher charges the plate and punches the umpire in the face, whereupon he is summarily ejected from the game.

Vergennes: Alcohol plays role in incidents

Posted on August 30, 2018 |
By Addison Independent



VERGENNES — Alcohol issues were among the cases that kept Vergennes police busy between Aug. 20 and 26, including issuing two citations for driving under the influence (DUI) of alcohol and helping a man they found passed out in the road with a significantly elevated blood-alcohol count.

On Aug. 20 police stopped a vehicle on First Street because its owner had an expired license and at that traffic stop cited Laurie Murphy, 64, of Vergennes for DUI.
