A ragged fly on a flooded river

Posted on June 2, 2011 |
By Matt Dickerson



I don’t usually get excited about catching a nine-inch trout. At least not when the trout was almost certainly a stocked fish, and I’m fishing a favorite stretch of my home river where I’ve already caught 1,000 trout in my lifetime.

But this was different for two reasons.

No time to tip-toe

Posted on June 2, 2011 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



Here’s a question to ponder: Can Americans afford to tip-toe gingerly into the future, or are we being flung headfirst into an era of rapid change and the challenge before us is to react as proficiently and studiously as possible to position ourselves for a more secure future?

For better or worse, the latter seems to dictate the times.

• Climate change is upon us and scientists keep shortening the window of opportunity to right the wrongs we’ve done.

Clippings: News on the Web gets too personal

Posted on June 2, 2011 |
By John McCright



My dad and I have a lot in common. We were both born and raised in Iowa by Roman Catholic parents. We both went to college and got post-graduate degrees. We both take pleasure in being fathers, enjoy eating peanut butter, prefer manual transmission cars.

What we don’t have in common is the news we read. And that’s not just because we have easy access to different print newspapers given the fact that he lives in Iowa and I live in Vermont.

Around the bend: Nature's 'villains' should make noise

Patchwork: Memorial Day weekend, days of remembrance, planting

Posted on June 2, 2011 |
By Kate Gridley

When I was a child, we planted the entire vegetable garden at once, over Memorial Day weekend. Finally it was warm enough to start thinking about planting, and it was a long weekend.

Warm enough, you ask? Indeed. I am talking about 45 years ago when there could be snow in Connecticut in May. Frequently there were killing frosts. So Memorial Day weekend was not only family time, for being together and honoring those who had made sacrifices for our country, but it marked the true beginning of the summer growing season.
