Clippings: There's no place like the home lawn

Posted on November 5, 2009 |
By Matt Dickerson



A friend was recently in town for a visit. He’d just returned from 20 months with the Peace Corps on the Caribbean island of St. Lucia. Before that he’d been a student at Middlebury College. And before that, he’d grown up in Kansas. Now the trees in St. Lucia don’t have a season for shedding leaves. College students are not required to do lawn care. And Kansas doesn’t have many trees — just prairies, yellow brick roads, and ’70s rock bands.

Editorial: Why pundits use storylines that too often miss the story

Posted on November 5, 2009 |
By Angelo Lynn



In four elections Tuesday, voters in Virginia, New Jersey, New York and California showed a strong bias for local and personal politics that had little ties to the national scene, though too many media pundits tried to make it seem like the tide was changing across the nation’s political landscape.

While headlines proclaimed that it “wasn’t 2008 anymore,” and that the Republican “sweep” was a warning to Democrats of things to come in the mid-term elections next year, we would hope most readers understand that the headlines serve the political pundits better than the public.

MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury Union High School football coach Dennis Smith said he remembered a game like his team’s 20-14 overtime win over visiting Otter Valley Friday — when he was a high school freshman in 1983.

OV coach Dennis Perry said of the wind-swept, rain-soaked battle that, “It was just a couple of big old heavyweights going at it in a slugfest, and they were the last man standing.”

In Ripton, students learn lessons of less

RIPTON — Ensconced in a former farmhouse tucked away amid the tree-filled slopes of Ripton, one could already argue that attending classes at the North Branch School is akin to going back to nature.

But the more than two-dozen students and faculty at North Branch took that concept a step further last week, as part of their contribution to the more than 5,200 worldwide global warming action events that occurred on Oct. 24 through the efforts of 350.org.

Gardeners fend off late blight

Posted on November 2, 2009 |
By Kathryn Flagg



ADDISON COUNTY — Tomato season has come and gone, but late blight — a fungal disease that infected many tomato and potato crops in Vermont this summer — is still on the minds of many gardeners this fall.

As farmers and gardeners put their plots to bed, they’re taking care to make sure the blight, credited with causing the Irish potato famine of the 1840s, won’t spread to next year’s crops.
