PHILADELPHIA — The Middlebury women’s lacrosse team won its sixth NCAA Division III title and first since 2004 on Sunday, when the Panthers put the clamps on NESCAC rival Trinity in a final played a Talen Energy Stadium in Philadelphia, 9-5.

The controversy now about the North Carolina law denying human rights for transsexuals reminds me of a Tar Heel politician of a generation ago who, quite successfully, advocated for laws and policies designed to restrict the rights of a vast number of human beings and even deny their humanity. I’m sure there are a lot of readers who remember, and shudder at hearing, the name Jesse Helms.

By Jessie Raymond



Jessie's column Jasper 3 cmyk.jpg

It’s the end of an era at our little homestead, the Lazy J. For the first time in almost a decade, the property is goatless.We have sent our two goats, Jasper and Daphne, to live with a new family in Castleton.

Our decision to rehome them came this spring, after our eldest goat, Lucy, died. (It was harder on us than you might expect; I wore a black armband on my barn coat for weeks.) Suddenly, Jasper and Daphne decided they were not only free-range, but also free to leave the property.

By Bernice Borkman



I have a pressing problem that I know for certain concerns many senior citizens seeking apartments: outrageous rents.
