Guest editorial: Signs of hope — in politics?

Posted on December 17, 2018 |
By Lee H. Hamilton



Call me a contrarian. Or even a Pollyanna. But when everyone around me is filled with gloom and despair, seeing dire portents in every political headline, I try to find trends that encourage me.

And I’m finding them. It could be that my hopes outrun the realities. But I’m guardedly optimistic that’s not the case.
If there’s a single theme that ties them together, it seems to me that many people are beginning to view government with greater realism as to what it can do about improving the quality of life of our people.

The Town Hall Theater’s Education team, namely Courageous Stage’s Lindsay Pontius, Craig Maravich and their wonderful team of artists and educators did an incredible and moving job with about 90 local fifth and sixth graders from four different elementary schools as the kids performed “Henry IV, Part I” last Thursday evening. Congratulations to all involved! I’ve really never seen anything like “Shakespeare: It’s Elementary.”

By James M. Ross



I read with interest the letter from Ian Ross recently printed in the Dec. 3 issue of your paper.

There is little to disagree with in Ian’s letter. I too have lived in Middlebury all my life and have watched our country change over the years. We no longer live in an insular society. But I have a perspective that can also be of value.

Letter to the editor: Solar arrays, agriculture are not incompatible uses

Posted on December 17, 2018 |
By Fred Putnam Jr.



I was glad to read in the Dec. 3, 2018, issue of the Addison Independent about the testing being done to grow saffron amongst solar arrays. Many times I’ve seen people write or talk about solar arrays removing land from agricultural production. While that may be true for dairy and beef cows or for hay and corn, and while those large scale agricultural endeavors are important to our local economy, they are not the only kinds of agriculture.
