Cradle Switch.jpg

BRANDON — Brandon Music welcomes back firm favorites Cradle Switch to Brandon Music on Saturday, May 25. A five-piece acoustic Americana group, based in Cambridge, N.Y., Cradle Switch’s repertoire promises something for everyone. With ballads as well as up-tempo rhythms, the group’s lyrics cover the emotional spectrum moving easily from spirited and gritty to some mellow love songs too. With each performance Cradle Switch balances contemporary songs and classic tunes drawing from bluegrass, country, folk, and a little blues with their own authentic compositions.

Editorial: Better to have no bill than a bad one

Posted on May 23, 2019 |
By Angelo Lynn



In a legislative session initially filled with the promise of progressive accomplishment, the supermajority owned by the Democrats was so poorly managed by the House and Senate leadership this session that the best move at this late stage, with two of the biggest issues of the year yet resolved, may be to call it an impasse and simply adjourn and start anew next session.

Editorial: Saying thanks for Trent's cherished photos

Posted on May 23, 2019 |
By Angelo Lynn



In a personal commentary about a tough medical period he has endured over the past six months, the Addison Independent’s beloved photographer Trent Campbell offers a humble observation about how to adjust one’s priorities and get a new outlook on life. “I recommend having a stroke,” he writes. “I had one, and it did wonders altering my perspective.”

He backs off that wry sense of humor in the next sentence, recalling that he had two strokes in the past six months and suggests “avoiding a stroke any way you can.”

Ways of Seeing by Alice Leeds: Mary at the lighthouse

Posted on May 23, 2019 |
By Alice Leeds

When I was twenty I worked at a nursing home as the activities director. The home was located in a transitional urban neighborhood, and residents included Irish Catholic immigrants, Eastern European Jews, Southern Black Baptists, White Anglo Saxon Protestants, the mentally ill, the developmentally delayed, the senile, and folks who had all their facilities intact. The one common denominator was poverty. None of them could afford anything better.

Jessie Raymond: Finally solving the purse problem

Posted on May 23, 2019 |
By Jessie Raymond

I don’t know the correct name for it. Younger people call it a purse. Retailers call it a handbag. I think I call mine a pocketbook, although the word makes me think of my grandmother. Whatever you call it, mine is not working for me.

I throw my car keys into my bag without thinking, and I have yet to own a bag that will allow me to find them easily later. (Call me self-conscious, but I’ve reached an age where it feels undignified to dump the contents of my pocketbook on the blacktop every time I need to unlock my car.)

Clippings by John S. McCright: Your letters to the editor matter

Posted on May 23, 2019 |
By John S. McCright



McCright, John 8902.jpg

Why is it that when people disagree these days the only way we seem to be able to address each other is through shouting? Sometimes if feels like we are all so sure that reasonable arguments aren’t going to change minds that we too quickly raise our voices as if physical intimidation will sway the opinions of those we disagree with.

Victor Nuovo: 'Founding Brothers' wore no halos

Posted on May 23, 2019 |
By Victor Nuovo



Nuovo, Victor ONLINE.jpg

Editor’s note: This is the 19th in a series of essays on the American political tradition.

It is now no longer appropriate to use the expression “Founding Fathers” when referring to the founders of this nation. Its use was once meant to put them in a class above the people, to present them as venerable, whereas, we have come to realize that they, like us, were “human, all too human,” flawed, and full of foibles. Besides, the expression smacks of patriarchalism, which is vile.
