Editorial: What the supercommittee's failure says about Congress

Posted on November 23, 2011 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



The inability of the congressional “supercommittee” to reach agreement on how to reduce the nation’s deficit by $1.2 trillion over a decade corresponds directly with a recent New York Times/NBCpoll showing a record 84 percent of Americans disapprove of how Congress is doing its job, and that its approval rating has hit rock bottom at just 9 percent. That’s an all-time low; less support than even President Richard M. Nixon had during Watergate.

Thai restaurant to locate in Middlebury

Posted on November 23, 2011 |
By John Flowers



Thai-Restaurant.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — There are definite signs of life at the longtime restaurant space at 22 Merchants Row after more than a year-and-a-half of dormancy.

Those signs of life are evidenced by the sounds of hammers and skill saws being wielded by workers who are transforming the 2,343-square-foot space into a new Thai restaurant scheduled to open early next month.

It will be called “Sabai Sabai,” Thai words that translate to “comfortable,” noted Art Jilandharn, who with his wife, Claire, will operate the new restaurant.

Clippings: Learning the ABCs of newspapers

Posted on November 23, 2011 |
By John S. McCright



A teacher from an area grade school called the other day and asked if she could bring her kids around to find out how a newspaper is made. I told her I’d be happy to share what I knew, and we talked about a day and time for the visit.

After I got off the phone I realized I didn’t know the ages of the kids who would be visiting. I knew they weren’t high schoolers. She might have said something about second grade. Good heavens, what would I have to say to children so young?

Does school consolidation cut costs?

Posted on November 23, 2011 |
By Andrew Stein



BRISTOL — With discussions like the one in Bristol last week about how schools can work together to save money by working together, many are asking the question, “Does school consolidation really cut costs?”

The Legislature has offered Vermont towns an incentive to perform RED (Regional Education District) studies to see how a type of school consolidation would work for them.

The RED study template, created by the Vermont Department of Education, explains the reasoning behind RED-study incentives:

Players, coaches, teams, Murph: Thanksgiving

Posted on November 23, 2011 |
By Karl Lindholm



Here’s a Thanksgiving sports story for you:

The last football game in a season is an emotional time for any team. For seniors, playing their last game, the emotional stakes are high. It was especially so for the Middlebury College team two weekends ago.

Middlebury came into the game with three wins and four losses, so was hoping to get to .500 with a win. Tufts University, their opponent, was winless, 0-7; a victory against the Panthers on Senior Day in Boston before the home folks would salvage their season.
