In regard to Norton Latourelle’s letter to the editor, Monday, Sept 29, we would like to encourage residents of Vermont (especially Addison County) and New York to consider his suggestion of an alternative to the contentious pipeline.
Attending the recent candidate forum at the Middlebury Town Hall Theater, I was extremely impressed by Calvin McEathron’s vision for Vermont. He seemed to be the only candidate with original proposals to offer and I’m very encouraged that he recognizes the critical importance of working to keep young people and families from continuing to leave our state.
I am a Middlebury Tiger football fan and what I saw at the game in Hinesburg against the Champlain Valley Union High School varsity team on Sept. 27 from their coach, Jim Provost, was entirely uncalled for.
If you have not voted already, when you consider how to use your two votes for our Middlebury representatives to Montpelier, I ask you to consider voting for Amy Sheldon and Betty Nuovo.
I have known Amy for all the years since she was executive director of the Middlebury Area Land Trust. It was her initiative and care for our community then that both founded our commitment to conserve our working landscape and brought the Trail Around Middlebury (TAM) into being — one of our best assets.
