Ways of Seeing: Building bridges in a young girl's life

Posted on October 31, 2016 |
By Alice Leeds



Village2Village began as an alliance between the village of Bristol, Vt. and a village in Serere, Uganda. Its mission is to provide comprehensive, empowering, respectful and compassionate care for vulnerable children and their families, one life at a time. I became a sponsor in 2009.

My first letter from Bridget arrived. It was handwritten in a tidy yet animated script on a lined sheet of white paper. I searched this brief introductory note for a clue to the person in the photo I received of a sweet-faced girl with sensitive eyes and a reluctant smile.

By Addison Independent



ST. JOHNSBURY — The Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department says a preliminary count reveals hunters took 73 moose in this year’s regulated hunting seasons.

“A preliminary count on Oct. 24 showed that hunters had reported nine moose being taken by 27 hunters in the Oct. 1-7 archery season and 64 moose taken by 141 hunters in the Oct. 15-20 regular season,” said Cedric Alexander, Vermont’s moose project leader.  He said a few additional reports may still be sent in from other reporting agents.

Letter to the editor: Bruhl understands 'complexities' of farming, economy

Posted on October 31, 2016 |
By Ben and Theresa Gleason



If wish I lived in Middlebury just so I could vote for Robin Scheu for state rep. What I can most speak to about Robin is her collaborative and kind leadership style, which will serve our state well.

Robin and I have attended the same church for many years, where I have seen her calm and thoughtful leadership up close. She is articulate, smart, compassionate. The list of public and non-profit organizations for which she has provided effective leadership is truly impressive. She knows how to listen and respect all points of view.

Eighty feet of South Maple St. sewer main to be fixed

Posted on October 31, 2016 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — The City of Vergennes’ annual spending, which runs from July to June in the city’s fiscal year, appears to be on track at a point, in late October, where tracking the budget begins to mean something.

“It actually starts to take shape,” City Manager Mel Hawley told the city council at a meeting this past Tuesday.

The recent arrival of the city’s two new police cruisers should clean up the only line item that has proven problematic.

Letter to the editor: Lanpher works 'across the aisle;' Langrock backed

Posted on October 31, 2016 |
By Arabella Holzapfel



There’s a reason Diane Lanpher has been re-elected three times: She gets things done for her constituents. As a novice legislator in her first term, she worked across the aisle and across state lines with New York legislators to get the Champlain Bridge rebuilt — a vital artery of transportation and commerce in our district. She continues to advocate for us on important issues, for example co-sponsoring a bill requiring public notice of wastewater discharges, which has particular pertinence in Vergennes. Her service to our district has earned my vote again.

Letter to the editor: Good, not low-paying, jobs needed

Posted on October 31, 2016 |
By Geoffrey Cobden



On Oct. 17 you published a nice front-page article on Randy Brock. He spoke of creating good jobs in Vermont.

I remember a few of his employees years ago. They worked as security people at Middlebury College for minimum wage. We do not want more jobs like that.

This is one reason we do not want more Republicans at any level.

Unless Democrats push for Bernie’s program, such as $15/hour minimum wage, they need to disappear as well.
