Nation's founding documents show us way forward

Posted on November 21, 2016 |
By Harry Yeo Chaucer



In the last two weeks I was worried that Donald Trump could win the election.The key for me was the lawn signs. Not how many, but where they were. In many yards I saw the usual array of Republican lawn signs — congressional, gubernatorial etc., then, at the end of the display, almost in the neighbor’s yard, was the Trump/Pence Sign. It seemed to say, “I’m for them, but I’m not proud of it — this sign could be in my neighbor’s yard, and not mine.”

Canada geese: migrant or resident?

Posted on November 21, 2016 |
By Meghan McCarthy McPhaul



VERMONT — A large V of Canada geese flying noisily over my head — and traveling north, rather than south — got me wondering about the ins and outs of fall migration. Shouldn’t these big birds be flying to warmer climes this time of year? Why do they travel in that V-formation, anyway?

Editorial: A heavy lift for U.S. voters

Posted on November 21, 2016 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



Two items hit the news last week that we might as well be prepared for in a Donald Trump presidency: Trump taking credit for something he didn’t do, and bad news on the environmental front.

Last Thursday, Trump claimed he saved a Ford plant in Kentucky from moving to Mexico. Not so fast, said the Ford company. Facts are the plant was never going to move to Mexico, but rather just a small line of production involving the Lincoln utility vehicle, the MKC.

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — No. 6 Messiah defeated the Middlebury College women’s soccer team, 3-0, on Saturday in an NCAA Sectional semifinal played on the campus of Williams College.

The Panthers, who had advanced to the Sweet Sixteen of an NCAA tournament for the fifth time in program history, finished at 15-5 after winning an NCAA Regional the weekend before at Stevens Institute. Messiah (20-2) was set on Sunday to play host No. 3 Williams (18-0-2), the defending NCAA champion, for a berth in the tournament’s final four.

Republicans win elections by lying; Trump no exception

Posted on November 21, 2016 |
By Peter Grant



Trump is a loser.

Elizabeth Warren finally said it out loud, “Trump is a loser.”

He lost a billion dollars. Imagine what he will do with the U.S. budget, where we are talking about real money.

When we heard about his tax returns and the billion loss, the wise pundits only thought about the tax write-off. The tax write-off was a minor problem compared to Trump being unable to run a business.

Independent's breakdown of votes omitted some

Posted on November 21, 2016 |
By Pat Ullom



To whom it may concern:

Your Addison County plus Brandon breakdown of last week’s election was as usual much appreciated. A town-by-town breakdown of Bernie Sanders and Jill Stein, I am sure would also have been appreciated by many of us. I was told, when I called, that it was a “space problem.” Unfortunately, I don’t believe either candidate would have taken up much space. Thank you.
