Posted on December 22, 2016 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



This past sports year proved to be memorable in a number of ways, and not just for championships, although athletes at Middlebury College and Vergennes, Mount Abraham and Middlebury union high schools did earn a few of those.

To review, chronologically, the titles:

• Mount Abe sophomore Lydia Pitts won three Division II indoor track events.

• VUHS junior Brandon Cousino and MUHS senior Nick Beauchamp earned Vermont wrestling crowns.

• The MUHS boys’ Nordic team cruised to a D-II championship.

Christmas reinforces family, love

Posted on December 22, 2016 |
By John Flowers



People have every right to be thankful on Thanksgiving.

But for me, Christmas is the pinnacle of holiday blessings.

Maybe it’s because I am fortunate to be married into a large, wonderful family. If Norman Rockwell were still alive, he’d bring his easel to the Heffernan home in Bristol to record four generations of a salt-of-the-Earth family breaking bread, opening presents and catching up on the latest news.

Jessie Raymond: Holiday shopping tests a marriage

Posted on December 22, 2016 |
By Jessie Raymond



Two weekends ago, my husband Mark and I celebrated our 22nd anniversary. We spent the night at a cozy inn in Stowe, and we would have had a lovely time — if only we hadn’t pushed our luck. But on Saturday, we decided to go Christmas shopping. As a couple.

We hadn’t made that mistake in years.

Mark — a slow-moving, avid browser and generous spender — and I —a hermit and a miser (but really quite a hoot once you get to know me) — do not shop well together.

Letter to the editor: Pipeline letter a great service

Posted on December 22, 2016 |
By Burgess Needle



Jane Palmer’s passionate and articulate letter (Dec. 12, 2016) regarding the gas pipeline deserves to be placed on the same shelf as Henry David Thoreau’s essay on “Civil Disobedience.” Her comment, “...our government is there to serve, we the people, not corporations...” told me that even in these trying times of cash-leveraged politics and corporate collusion, there is hope.
