Clippings: Memo to grads bridges generations

Posted on June 3, 2010 |
By Angelo Lynn



The year was 1971. It was late May and in Kansas, in those years, we graduated before the summer’s heat was too unbearable in classrooms without air conditioning.

Graduation was that Saturday, and the night before I had been to one of those post ’60s senior parties. I woke up a bit late that next morning (some things don’t change), threw on my cap and gown, jumped on my brother’s Yamaha 175cc dirt bike, and shot off to the graduation ceremonies just in time to make the entry with classmates — with just a slight bit of chain grease on the gown.

Around the Bend: These animals can get your goat

Posted on June 3, 2010 |
By Jessie Raymond



When you spend enough time with animals, you start to truly understand them. Maybe it’s the barn fumes, but lately I feel like I can even hear what they’re saying.

Take our pet goats, for instance. As soon as the three of them see my husband and me preparing to move their fence to new pasture, they come bounding up to us with eager smiles, saying, “That looks interesting. Here, we’ll help.” The next thing you know, they’re weaving in and out between us, nibbling on the fiberglass posts, stepping on our feet and generally being more problem than solution.

Editorial: Rethinking the push for oil

Posted on May 31, 2010 |
By Angelo Lynn



As the success of British Petroleum’s most recent ploy to stop the flow of oil gushing into the Gulf Coast remains in doubt and the volume of the oil spill far greater than originally estimated, the political fall-out is predictable — and necessary.

Editorial: Bristol - take a firm stand

Posted on May 27, 2010 |
By Angelo Lynn



The Bristol Selectboard faces an interesting question concerning its proper role in the upcoming Act 250 board’s ruling on the proposed Lathrop gravel pit. It is common for town selectboard’s to contribute to such hearings with information concerning how the proposed development fits in with the town plan and any other matters that may contribute to the board’s over-all understanding. The dilemma facing the Bristol selectboard is how strongly they should present the controversial nature of the proposal and the public’s opposition to it in a letter to the Act 250 board.

Editorial: A challenge to embrace

Posted on May 27, 2010 |
By Angelo Lynn



As Middlebury bids John and Bonnie McCardell its fondest farewell and best wishes in their new venture, there is yet one more reason to treasure their arrival in town (separately) more than 30 years ago: with a new challenge to meet emerging needs through the United Way, the McCardells have again set the bar a notch higher in ways to give back to one’s community.

Politically Thinking: Race for Senate control will be tight

Posted on May 27, 2010 |
By Eric L. Davis



During the 36 years he has been a senator, Vermont Democrat Patrick Leahy has spent 20 years as a member of the majority party and 16 years as a member of the minority party. Leahy will almost certainly be re-elected to a seventh term in November, but whether he will be a member of the majority or the minority party when the Senate reconvenes in January is very much an open question.

Between the Lines: Dubious advice to new college grads

Posted on May 27, 2010 |
By Gregory Dennis



Because so many people have asked me for a copy of the remarks I made at Sunday’s Middlebury College commencement, I’ve decided to reprint them here.

In case you hadn’t seen the news reports, I was asked to step in at the last minute for Nicholas Kristoff and Sheryl WuDunn, the scheduled commencement speakers who were last-minute no-shows. Apparently they had a Third World country to save that day and decided, for some inexplicable reason, that this was more important than giving a commencement speech.
