Letters to the Editor: Porter nurses emphasize staffing in contract talks

Posted on August 14, 2017 |
By Millard M. Cox



An important process is occurring at Porter Medical Center, one of personal interest to Addison County residents. The Porter Federation of Nurses and Health Professionals are engaged in contract negotiations with the hospital administration, and this concerns all of us because what is good for the nurses is good for us. When we seek healing in the Porter complex, we depend on the nurses for our care and well-being. The nurses there are our neighbors and friends, even our relatives. It is important to all of us that the nurses are respected and well treated.

Letters to the Editor: Trump can't legally start a war

Posted on August 14, 2017 |
By Harry Yeo Chaucer

Posted on August 14, 2017 |
By Bunny Daubner



It has been 72 years since America dropped the atomic bombs on Japan — August 7, 1945, and August 9, 1945.

No more Hiroshimas! No more Nagasakis! It is past time to end the threat and horror of nuclear war!

One estimation of casualties is about 200,000 human beings, with continuing torturous deaths from radiation for years; with extensive destruction of the whole natural environment, and hospitals, police and fire departments and government agencies.

Posted on August 10, 2017 |
By Addison Independent Staff



MIDDLEBURY — Construction crews are now finishing up work on the newly installed temporary rail bridge on Merchants Row, and downtown traffic is expected to return to normal on Friday, Aug. 12.

By Will DiGravio

NEW HAVEN — As the sun shone down on the opening day of the 2017 Addison County Fair & Field Days, several miniatures donkeys earned class titles and one became overall champion. But ascertaining which deserved the crown was not as easy as it might seem.

“It’s a lot harder (to judge) donkeys because when they get into their stubborn or scared streak they don’t always walk as straight as they normally would,” said Kathy Kennett, this year’s judge.
