Jessie Raymond: How to hike 5.2 miles in her shoes

Posted on July 15, 2015 |
By Jessie Raymond



Not a lot of people know this, but I’m kind of an outdoors expert. I’ve learned a lot over the years, primarily through watching reality TV shows and reading about Lewis and Clark. Also, I have gone outside quite a bit, though mostly just to get the mail.

By Lee Weisman



My thanks to the Addison Independent for reporting on the cannon use controversy (The firing line, July 2, 2015) here in West Ferrisburgh. A sympathetic representation overall but several points are worth mentioning I think.

Posted on July 15, 2015 |
By Karl Lindholm

Every time I turn around I bump into Dave Sears. The man is everywhere. I think there must be three or four of him.
