The brilliance of President Obama’s state of the union speech Tuesday night was that it set the political stage for the presidential election two years from now in terms favorable to Democrats.

Opinion: Protestors did the right thing

Posted on January 21, 2015 |
By Millard Cox



I am writing to respectfully disagree with Rep. Warren Van Wyck’s assessment of the protests in the Statehouse on Jan. 8.

So, here we are in a nation that had its beginnings with the likes of Sam Adams and the Sons of Liberty, and in a state that had its foundations laid by the outlaw Ethan Allen and the Green Mountain Boys, and some of us are insulted and concerned that the Statehouse might witness further scenes of “ill-behaved protesters?”

Opinion: Change needed in water policies

Posted on January 21, 2015 |
By David Brynn



The time has come to take seriously the cleanup of our streams, rivers and lakes. They are the lifeblood of Vermont and they are the ecological treasures of all Vermonters.

As temperatures continue to warm and the peak flows of storm events increase, the negative impacts of sediment and nutrient deposition will accelerate. That Gov. Shumlin has placed the cleanup on his priority list for his third term is a great step forward.

BRISTOL — Two boys’ basketball teams experiencing different seasons, Vergennes and Mount Abraham, met in the Mount Abraham Union High School gym on Tuesday, and unfortunately for the host Eagles, the trends continued.

The Commodores took control with a 22-0 run that spanned the first and second quarters, and they improved to 10-1 with a 68-20 victory.

“I like our guys,” said VUHS Coach Peter Quinn. “They have good team spirit. They pull for each other. They’re having fun, and they’re playing better.”

Commodores place at indoor track meet

Posted on January 21, 2015 |
By Addison Independent



NORTHFIELD — A second-place finish on Saturday from Vergennes Union High School’s Chris Castillo highlighted the efforts of indoor track athletes from VUHS, Mount Abraham and Middlebury at a meet hosted by Norwich University.

With athletes from Division I and II schools competing together, Castillo’s leap of 18 feet, 11.5 inches was good for second place in the boys’ long jump.

Also placing for the Commodores was thrower Ally Stearns, whose toss of 28 feet, 9 inches gave her a fifth-place tie in the girls’ shot put.

Andy Kirkaldy: Pats' cheating? Just business as usual in the NFL

Posted on January 21, 2015 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



Oh, those darn Patriots, dirty cheaters.

Haven’t won a Super Bowl since Spygate, when they were caught filming the Jets’ defensive signals (Really? The Jets? Seemed like unnecessary overkill.)

Used evil trickeration to defeat those nice Ravens a couple Saturdays ago, lining up a halfback as a lineman. The nerve of a team trying to fool the opponent’s defense.
