By Addison Independent



WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — No. 6 Messiah defeated the Middlebury College women’s soccer team, 3-0, on Saturday in an NCAA Sectional semifinal played on the campus of Williams College.

The Panthers, who had advanced to the Sweet Sixteen of an NCAA tournament for the fifth time in program history, finished at 15-5 after winning an NCAA Regional the weekend before at Stevens Institute. Messiah (20-2) was set on Sunday to play host No. 3 Williams (18-0-2), the defending NCAA champion, for a berth in the tournament’s final four.

Republicans win elections by lying; Trump no exception

Posted on November 21, 2016 |
By Peter Grant



Trump is a loser.

Elizabeth Warren finally said it out loud, “Trump is a loser.”

He lost a billion dollars. Imagine what he will do with the U.S. budget, where we are talking about real money.

When we heard about his tax returns and the billion loss, the wise pundits only thought about the tax write-off. The tax write-off was a minor problem compared to Trump being unable to run a business.

Independent's breakdown of votes omitted some

Posted on November 21, 2016 |
By Pat Ullom



To whom it may concern:

Your Addison County plus Brandon breakdown of last week’s election was as usual much appreciated. A town-by-town breakdown of Bernie Sanders and Jill Stein, I am sure would also have been appreciated by many of us. I was told, when I called, that it was a “space problem.” Unfortunately, I don’t believe either candidate would have taken up much space. Thank you.

Poem: There is here

Posted on November 18, 2016 | Blog Category:
By Gary Margolis



Maybe I shouldn’t tell you I wear 
a star under my shirt. 
Having heard two swastikas

were seen magic-marked 
on our Havaruh’s door. 
Here, in a country town, more

of a house than a city’s 
synagogue. Maybe I shouldn’t 
say how much or how little

I pray. How disturbing it is
to remember the numbers I saw
inked on a man’s wrist,

when I was a boy. 
What, a few weeks ago,
I felt in Birkenau, fields

Posted on November 17, 2016 |
By John Flowers

MIDDLEBURY —  Prior to Nov. 8, some Middlebury residents had raised concerns about how voters would adjust to the new polling place at the town’s recreation facility at 151 Creek Road.

With the General Election now squarely in the rearview mirror, town officials said they have received mostly positive reviews from local voters, who for the first time in many years — perhaps ever — cast ballots in a venue outside of the core village area.
