Gregory Dennis: Trump in store for a rough ride

Posted on February 9, 2017 |
By Gregory Dennis



There’s said to be an old Chinese curse, “May you live in interesting times.” We are certainly living in interesting times with Donald Trump.

I almost wrote “under Donald Trump.”

But the evidence has mounted in the chaotic three weeks of this administration of incompetent revolutionaries. And one thing is increasingly clear: While we will be living with Trump for several years to come, we don’t have to see ourselves as living under him or his rule.

Letter to the editor: Immigration ban not right

Posted on February 9, 2017 |
By Anya Schwartz



Oh dear.

So much to say about Trump’s executive orders banning Syrian refugees, etc. Simply, though, it just ain’t right.

I’ll find better words and better methods to welcome and celebrate people of all faiths and nationalities as my neighbors.

And if I don’t, why, I’ll just keep repeating, it just ain’t right. Beats saying nothing.

Letter to the editor: Havurah pans Trump order

Posted on February 9, 2017 |
By Sarit Katzew



Havurah, the Addison County Jewish Congregation, is profoundly troubled by the anti-immigrant and anti-refugee rhetoric and action coming from the Trump administration. Many of our families came to this country as refugees or immigrants, fleeing persecution and terror, just as refugees are today.

We believe that America is — and must remain — a land of freedom and opportunity for ALL people, regardless of religion, race, ethnicity, gender or LGBTQ identity. We must unite and stand up for these principles, despite our differences.

Letter to the editor: Coyote hunts are example of 'gratuitous violence'

Posted on February 9, 2017 |
By Anne Jameson



In a 21st century society, coyote killing contests, often known as “canned hunts,” are an outdated and cruel source of “entertainment.” In exchange for cash or other prizes, these “contests” allow coyote hunters to kill in a variety of categories, including largest, smallest, “ugliest” and others; there is no limit to the number that may be killed in the contest.

Letter to the editor: Killing animals for fun is not what a true hunter does

Posted on February 9, 2017 |
By Anna Rose Benson



This letter is about the coyote hunt coming up this week.

My dad, a hunter, taught me that killing animals for fun was wrong. I learned that animals were important and to respect them. It was easy to see that they liked being alive as much as I did.
