Posted on November 9, 2017 |
By Rebecca Kneale Gould



Last autumn I took a year off from writing “Ways of Seeing” columns to focus on some other projects. And what a year it was.

By Gregory Dennis

It didn’t used to be this way. Back before my addiction took hold, I could just look at Twitter for a few minutes and then go on with my life.

Now, though, I can’t escape the giant time suck. The pull of the keyboard, the angry post and the witty riposte.

Some people pour their entire lives down the bottle. I’m in danger of pouring my life down the Twitterverse. And when you’re drinking from the firehouse that is Twitter, the high never lasts.

ADDISON COUNTY — Although no local high school boys’ soccer teams earned trophies this fall, their efforts can all be fairly rated a success. All four finished at .500 or better; three, Middlebury, Mount Abraham and Vergennes, won playoff games; and the fourth, Otter Valley, posted the program’s best record in decades.

But there is no debate on the best of the bunch: Coach Reeves Livesay’s MUHS squad finished 10-2-3 and earned the No. 5 seed in Division I.
