Poem to the editor: The day after election day

Posted on November 17, 2016 |
By Lawrence A. Jones



It is a somber, sober day:

The clouds hang low on mountainside;

The leaves have danced their last ballet;

Last night I finally lost my pride.

 

Not pride, like hubris, in myself,

But pride in country’s wisdom shared.

Letter to the editor: MUHS football team showed character this season

Posted on November 17, 2016 |
By Jennifer Nuceder



Congratulations, and thank you to the 2016 Middlebury Union High School Varsity Football Team. The season I watched had many triumphs and challenges, building up in the quarter final game against Essex, and culminating in the semi-final game at Hartford. The growth and resilience this team demonstrated throughout this season was impressive, especially during the final game. The word that comes to mind is character, and it is especially important to me because it is a trait our family has recently focusing on teaching our son Luke.

Letter to the editor: Safety pin can send a message

Posted on November 17, 2016 |
By Barbara Clearbridge



The idea of wearing a safety pin as a political message was first used in the United Kingdom after the recent vote there to leave the European Union. The vote was followed by an increase in hate crimes. People started wearing a safety pin to show they were “a safe place” — that people need not fear them.

After our presidential election, many people in the U.S. now fear for their safety. So people here are spreading the idea of wearing a safety pin to show solidarity with those who feel threatened.

Letter to the editor: DNC earns blame for Trump win

Posted on November 17, 2016 |
By Anders Holm



Tuesday’s election was a massive bucket of ice water on our nation and the planet. There has been much blame and questioning however the answer to the astonishing turn of events is obvious. It was not hicks, gun nuts, or goosestepping Nazis who got Trump elected. It was the DNC and their completely out of touch railroading through of a crooked, crony-loving and corrupt Washington insider over an incredibly charismatic breath of fresh air by the name of Bernie Sanders.
