Opinion: Addition of women to Middlebury selectboard backed

Posted on February 26, 2014 |
By Ruth Hardy



Through my work over the past year as a public official in Middlebury, it has become abundantly clear to me that many in people in power in our town are unwilling to respect or include the voices of women in their work. Our selectboard has rarely included more than one woman among its ranks, and many times that lone woman has been shut out of deliberations. Women in leadership positions in Middlebury are often treated with disdain or simply ignored.

Opinion: Proposal earns resounding 'yes'

Posted on February 26, 2014 |
By Paul Ralston



I will vote YES to support the selectboard plan and bond request for a new town hall and gym. My YES vote is my “Thank You” to our elected and appointed officials for their thoughtful and prudent deliberations. My YES vote is my “Thank You” to Middlebury College for another generous offer of financial support to our town. And, my YES vote is my “Thank You” for a plan that will keep our tax burden to a bare minimum.

Opinion: Brandon must learn its lesson on budget planning

Posted on February 26, 2014 |
By Phyllis Reed



I recently attended the candidates’ forum in Brandon and found the word “transparency” used repeatedly. I held the question back that I wanted to ask to find out if the candidates truthfully thought the proposed budget was, in fact, “transparent.” The reason I held back was because three of the four candidates are incumbents. Of course they would think it is; they approved it.

OV boys fall short in first round

Posted on February 26, 2014 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



BRANDON — A Mount St. Joseph boys’ basketball team with a misleading 6-14 record and No. 11 seed in Division II knocked No. 6 Otter Valley Union High School out of the playoffs on Tuesday, 60-32, in a first-round game at OV.

The Otters led just once, 3-2, at 6:40 of the first period on a Connor Gallipo three-pointer, and could never get going offensively against the box-and-one defense that the Mounties used to keep high-scoring OV junior John Winslow in check and off the offensive boards.
