Clippings: After hitting No. 47, it's all downhill

Posted on August 4, 2011 |
By John McCright



Oh, I had a great birthday, thank you for asking. I got to enjoy almost everything I like, and I don’t just mean chocolate cake with chocolate frosting.

My 47th birthday was a couple Sundays ago. I didn’t have particularly high expectations for a grand day; after a certain age one never does.

She and her kids were renting a place on Lake Dunmore, which would be a nice place to pass a hot day.

ADDISON COUNTY — Driving south down Route 30 one summer morning, Addison County Forester Chris Olson came across an out-of-state car parked along the side of the road. He drew closer and noticed a woman picking wildflowers that looked just like Queen Anne’s lace, only yellow in color.

“As I whipped by I saw what she had in her hand,” said Olson.

So he spun around, pulled up behind her, got out of his car and approached the woman holding a bouquet of the yellow flowers.

By Karl Lindholm



Imagine: black men, barefoot, wearing grass skirts, shirtless, with war-painted faces, uttering gibberish, affecting a crude stereotype of African tribesmen, straight out of Tarzan movies. These were the Zulu Cannibal Giants, African-American baseball players in the 1930s, making a living, clowning, barnstorming the country, delighting white patrons.

Later, this team evolved into the Ethiopian Clowns, and finally the Indianapolis Clowns. The Clowns were a powerful force in black baseball from 1935 to the mid-1950s.

Politically Thinking: State might benefit from A.G. race

Posted on August 4, 2011 |
By Eric L. Davis



Attorney General William Sorrell has not faced a competitive election in his 14 years in office. In 1997, former Gov. Howard Dean nominated Attorney General Jeffrey Amestoy to become Chief Justice of the Vermont Supreme Court. At the same time, Dean appointed Sorrell, his administration secretary, to succeed Amestoy. In each of the seven elections from 1998 through 2010, Sorrell was re-elected without a serious contest.
