Among my numerous roles here at the Addison Independent, I hold the title of community calendar editor. In that capacity, I spend hours each week at a computer, inputting heaps of data in exchange for a modest hourly wage.
But don’t be fooled; it’s more than just a glamour job.
MIDDLEBURY — The Middlebury College field hockey team posted two one-sided shutout wins this past weekend to improve to 12-1. The Panthers entered this week ranked No. 3 in NCAA Division III and will visit Bates on Saturday.
On this past Saturday, the Panthers scored four goals in less than 12 minutes in the first half in a 6-0 win over visiting Trinity. Three of those goals came from Pam Schulman.
MIDDLEBURY — The Middlebury College football team scored 27 second-half points on Saturday in a 36-14 win over visiting Williams (2-2) as the Panthers improved to 3-1 and defeated the Ephs for the fourth straight time. Middlebury returns to action this weekend at Bates.
Williams got on the board first with a three-yard touchdown run from Noah Sorrento with 14:36 left in the second quarter. The drive was set up by a 32-yard punt return from Mark Pomella and a 17-yard connection from Austin Lommen to Colin Brown.

As someone who is usually up and productive by 8:30 on the weekends, I detest brunch. I find it a habit of sloth, and no amount of mimosas or feta and spinach omelets will change my conviction.
He works full time. She works part time. They both make minimum wage. They have a large family. He had some health insurance. She had none. Their combined income was such that their children were covered under Dr. Dynasaur; that is, until they let their 3Square benefits lapse. He was the only one with health insurance after that. That is when the work of a Vermont Health Connect Navigator began.
Many commentaries after the Democratic debate have pointed to Hillary Clinton’s debate performance by noting her rhetorical flourishes and mannerisms. However, in my view Hillary Clinton did not win the debate, unless one thinks one can win a debate by sidestepping and not being specific about how to address critically important issues.
I was shocked and angered by the comments of Emerson Lynn in his guest editorial of Oct. 12. A personal cool-down period was required so that I would not make similar mistakes to his.
We each have the right to our opinion and in stating it we should never attack people that feel differently. Mr. Lynn used some of the belittling tactics that we now find commonplace on the national political scene. Sound bites taken out of context or the mesmerizing shouting of offensive one-liners should be left, at least at present, to “The Donald.”
