Letter to the Editor: Ilsley Library needn't be a lot bigger

Posted on September 7, 2017 |
By Janine McDonald



When can we simply enjoy and savor the things around us? The constant expansions, “bigger is better” philosophy is too overwhelming.

I love the charm of Isley Library’s quaintness and small size. Why does everything need to be super-sized? The college library is a few steps away, and it is available to everyone; it is quite roomy, and there is an abundant inventory of wonderful books.

Eric Davis, Politically Thinking: Battle looms over Mississippi flag

Posted on September 7, 2017 |
By Eric Davis



The Supreme Court might soon consider the issue of Confederate symbols and how they relate to American public values. Carlos Moore, a citizen of Mississippi, has filed a lawsuit challenging the Mississippi state flag because it includes an image of the Confederate battle flag in the upper-left hand corner. Moore’s challenge was rejected by lower courts, primarily on procedural grounds, and he has asked the High Court to take up his case.

Ways of Seeing, Alice Leeds: Home garden teaches life lessons

Posted on September 7, 2017 |
By Alice Leeds



When we moved to Bristol 24 years ago, I had never lived in a small town. The 19th century homes on our block are close set, divided by driveways leading to former horse barns, but the land behind them stretches back spaciously.

I felt overwhelmed by the huge spruce hovering so close to our back porch. It obscured this view. I suggested cutting it down.

Community Forum, Karen Glitman: Efficiency Vermont — yesterday, today and tomorrow

Posted on September 7, 2017 |
By Karen Glitman



Nearly two decades ago, when growing electricity use was leading to increasing costs and environmental and financial risk, a group of Vermonters had a bold idea to tackle that era’s energy challenge. In contrast to building power plants, these leaders knew that electric efficiency, “energy not used,” could be quickly deployed at a fraction of the cost, and with little risk.
