CORNWALL — The kid from the Bronx and the farmer’s daughter, Eric and Roma “Mo” Mortensen of Cornwall, have been married for 50 years. Instead of a big party on May 22, we have been celebrating their 50th year of marriage all year long. We keep a scrapbook of their adventures as a reminder of the joys we experienced. We have simple dates and outings and visits to friends and family all over the country. Most mornings, we greet each other with “Happy anniversary.” It has been an interesting journey.

As the last snowfall of the winter of 2015-2016 recedes into memory, it feels like spring has truly arrived. Even before that last snow — gosh, only a little more than two weeks ago — me and my family were getting the lawn cleared of its winter debris and I even puttered around in the garden the weekend before that snow. I got my peas in the ground then.

Eric Davis: Trump poses problem for Vt. GOP

Posted on May 12, 2016 |
By Eric Davis



Donald Trump’s clinching the Republican presidential nomination will pose challenges for Vermont Republicans. In order to win statewide races, GOP candidates need the votes of independents, who disapprove of Trump by large margins.

Trump did win the Vermont Republican primary in March, with 33 percent of the vote. However, he received only 10 percent of all votes cast on Town Meeting Day. In November, Trump could well receive less than 40 percent of the Vermont presidential vote.

Ways of Seeing: Where do memories live?

By Kate Gridley



Ways of Seeing Kater Gridley.jpg

When we moved a few months ago, downsizing from a large Victorian house that we will hold in our memories as the home where we raised our sons, the act of taking the house apart brought — to my surprise — an image of my father’s brain to mind.

My father died at the age of 86 from causes related to a disintegrating brain. We thought of it simply as dementia, but there was much more going on.

MIDDLEBURY — After a couple of disappointing two-goal losses last week, the Middlebury Union High School boys’ lacrosse team bounced back on Monday to earn a victory over visiting Mount Mansfield and move back to .500 at 4-4.

But it wasn’t easy. The Tigers needed senior middie Ali Abdul Sater’s late goal to force overtime, and then a key defensive play to set up senior attacker Jack Hounchell’s game-winner 1:27 into the extra session as MUHS defeated the Cougars, 9-8.
