Time for rules to be altered or abandoned

Posted on May 26, 2011 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



Some proposed rule changes intended to improve sports can be charitably dismissed as well-meaning, but misguided.

Periodically, for example, someone suggest raising the height of the basketball hoop to decrease the advantage enjoyed by taller players. Most recently, several other commenters on Charlie Pierce’s boston.com blog had to disabuse an otherwise intelligent fellow poster of that notion.

Clippings: Stress-o-meter bobs up and down

Posted on May 26, 2011 |
By Trent Campbell



 

When it comes to stress, I am really moving up in the world. More than 20 years ago I was working for a radiology lab in California as a medical records technician. One day I happened to catch a news report that listed the least stressful jobs in America and medical records technician came in a close second to musical instrument repairman. When I heard the news I felt my blood pressure drop 25 points and watched the life line on the palm of my hand grow by an inch and a half. Kicking stress to the curb had me feeling groovy.

New fire stations needed, but frugality is appreciated

Posted on May 26, 2011 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



The decision by a town committee, after 17 months of study, to renovate and rebuild the two existing fire stations in Middlebury and East Middlebury has ample merits and deserves the town’s initial support, along with go-ahead plans to firm up any details the public will need to make an informed vote at town meeting next March.

In local business news, the discovery of a contaminant underneath the foundation of the Conner Homes building on Route 7 south in Middlebury, and the consequent and reasonable decision by Middlebury-based Green Mountain Beverage to call off the deal to purchase the building, poses new challenges for both enterprises — and the town.

Politically Thinking: Unification not high on Shumlin list

Posted on May 26, 2011 |
By Eric L. Davis



On Town Meeting Day, the voters of the Addison Northwest Supervisory Union approved the creation of a unified union district. Last week, the unified union was overturned on a reconsideration vote in Vergennes. After Vergennes voters rejected the proposal, ANwSU Superintendent Tom O’Brien said that school consolidation would “be put to rest for a period of time in our district … it will hibernate for a while, if you will.”

Between the Lines: Memorial Day triggers mixed feelings

Posted on May 26, 2011 |
By Gregory Dennis



My friend John once told the story of the worst thing that ever happened to him.

It was in World War II. He and 30 other young guys were in a boat off the coast of Norway, part of the Allies’ effort to retake the country from the Germans. Norway was bitterly contested territory, a tough place to be.

From the garden and kitchen this spring we have two new favorite concoctions I have to share with you. The first, rhubarb oatmeal, we have eaten every morning for the past 10 days. It is so simple, and it is a pleasure to yield to cries of “Can we PLEASE have rhubarb oatmeal?!”
