Letter to the editor: Room for local department store?

Posted on April 23, 2018 |
By Ian Ross



“I miss Lazarus!” I heard this statement while waiting for a school concert to start a couple months ago. I personally grew up with Montgomery Ward in Fair Haven, Vt., and I can say that I miss Montgomery Ward. I also enjoyed having Ames in walking distance when my family moved to Middlebury in the mid-1990s. How I lamented the closure of Ames in 2002. Since then, the nearest department stores have been in Rutland City and in Chittenden County.

Guest editorial: Determining who can vote, where

Posted on April 23, 2018 |
By Sec. of State Jim Condos



Last week, St. Johnsbury attorney Deborah Bucknam penned an editorial attacking me, titled “Allowing non-residents to vote equals voter suppression.”

BRISTOL — On a Thursday afternoon that saw flurries of snow, clutch hits from both high school baseball teams, and — understandably given the 35-degree weather — plenty of miscues, host Mount Abraham outlasted rival Vergennes, 15-14.

After Mount Abe bolted on top, 7-0, the Commodores came charging back. The lead changed hands four times in the final two innings before a bases-loaded, two-out miscue capped Mount Abe’s two-run rally in the bottom of the seventh and allowed the Eagles to win their season opener.
