Love of goats sparks creation of Goshen micro dairy

n Love of goats LEAD GoshenIceHouse9436.jpg

GOSHEN — On a gorgeous day in May, Goshen farmers Chad and Morgan Beckwith are taking their goats on a walk. The small herd follows along through the woods like a happy pack of large shaggy dogs, browsing on everything in sight. Partway through the walk, Morgan hears an urgent bleating that can only mean one thing. Calliope — a one-year-old French-Alpine “show goat” from New Hampshire and the newest addition to Ice House Farm — is about to kid for the first time.

MIDDLEBURY — A cool, misty rain greeted the almost 700 runners at the ninth annual Middlebury Maple Run as a hundred-plus runners huddled in the registration area early Sunday morning to keep warm ahead of the 9 a.m. start. Then the light rain stopped, the clouds lifted and a bigger crowd than some expected headed out for either the half marathon, or 3-mile fun run, under partly sunny skies and temperatures in the 50s — perfect temps for a longer run.

Jessie Raymond: It's very easy to get teed off at golf

Posted on May 11, 2017 |
By Jessie Raymond



For years, I’d been looking for a hobby with a steep learning curve that would make me feel like a failure over and over again.

Then last year, I discovered golf.

Don’t get me wrong: Golf isn’t just a discouraging pastime. It also makes me feel out of place.

I get the sense I’m not sophisticated enough to be allowed on the golf course. I’m unfamiliar with proper golf etiquette, and I’m too embarrassed to ask.

Editorial: Trump's America is failing state in the eyes of the world

Posted on May 11, 2017 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



When the president of the United States feels as if he is above the law, and the Republican Congress does nothing to preserve the integrity of those laws, we are a nation in dire trouble.

David Leonhardt, columnist and online opinion editor of the New York Times, wrote Wednesday: “The president of the United States is lying again… The president is lying about firing a top law enforcement official (FBI Director James Comey), and he is almost certainly lying to protect himself and his aides from a full investigation into their own activities.”

Letters to the Editor: Litterbugs can get a clean start

Posted on May 11, 2017 |
By Maggie Eaton



Having spent hours picking up trash on Green Up Day this past Saturday, I can confidently describe the people who litter our pretty landscape. They eat fast food, drink alcohol and other beverages, and smoke (mostly Marlboros) in their cars and then throw what is left out of their car windows. And for some odd reason, they throw used car tires in the ditches and down the riverbanks.
