City Lions club helps Northlands student

Posted on September 4, 2015 |
By Addison Independent



Lions Club thank you color.jpg

VERGENNES — It truly pays to live in a small community. Recently, one of our hearing-impaired students at Northlands Job Corps came to an abrupt halt in her training. That was the day that Ashley Knudsen’s battery in her hearing aid stopped working. 

Ashley, 22, came to Northlands a little over a year ago from Rhode Island. Ashley’s hearing deficit came after a childhood injury. She is set to complete the office administration trade in October and is hoping to permanently relocate to Vermont after completing the program.

Posted on September 4, 2015 |
By Martha Hill



I would like to take this opportunity to thank our wonderful community for the years of support to the Back-to-School Shop. For 12 years this project supplied low-income families with children in grades K-9 with needed school supplies in a “shop” format in Middlebury, Vergennes and Bristol during two days before the beginning of the school year.

Opinion: Solar array a better choice than fracking for energy

Posted on September 4, 2015 |
By Frank Farnsworth



I was raised in rural upstate New York and saw some of the problems that comewith fracking. As a result, I have a great appreciation for alternative, clean, renewable power, like solar power.

I’m not an engineer, but I try to see and think about what’s going onaround me. With fracking, the water being used is 4,000 feet down, but isn’t it still part of the hydraulic cycle? Someday it’ll be up here with our regular drinking water.

By Ed McCollin



For 105 years, the Boy Scouts of America has played an important and significant role in shaping the lives of its youth members by instilling in them the values found in the Scout Oath and Law. For those readers who are unfamiliar with the Oath and Law, please read on:

Scout Oath: On my Honor, I will do my best, to do my Duty, to God and my Country; To obey the Scout Law, to help other people at all times; To keep myself physically strong, mentally awake and morally straight.

Editorial: Governor's race gets interesting

Posted on September 4, 2015 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



What’s common about Democrat Matt Dunne and Republican Bruce Lisman entering the Vermont gubernatorial race this week is both candidates are portraying themselves as outsiders with national business experience and outside-the-box political perspectives. Both will also face well-respected, long-time legislative leaders.

From that snapshot, it’s a race pitting political experience against an outsider’s perspective; and to fit in with the popular narrative, they are the anti-establishment candidates bringing new solutions to fix a failed system.
