Letter to the editor: Reflecting on endless war on terror

Posted on September 20, 2018 |
By Patricia Heather-Lea



On Saturday, Sept. 8, my husband and I were visiting loved ones in Manchester, Vt. I was drawn to a park where I could listen to and watch the flow of the Battenkill River. It was a good place to continue with my daily prayers.

I was pulled away by the engraved dates in the curved sidewalk: World War II, 1941-1945. Korean War, 1950-1953. Vietnam War, 1965-1973. Gulf War, 1990-1991. Global War on Terror, 2001-the present.

Letter to the editor: Audet and Ralston go together like cream and coffee

Posted on September 20, 2018 |
By Bob Grim



I have been part of the Vermont dairy industry for my entire adult life, so it should not come as any surprise that I would strongly support one of my own. I hope you will join me on Nov. 6 in voting for Independents Marie Audet and Paul Ralston for Vermont Senate in the Addison District.

Letter to the editor: Dems back independent candidates

Posted on September 20, 2018 |
By Betty and Victor Nuovo



We have been Democrats for most of our adult life, favoring liberal and progressive programs. One of us (Betty) was instrumental in establishing the Democratic Party in Middlebury and Addison County. But we are not so dyed-in-the-wool that we would not vote for an outstanding candidate from another party, or, as in this case, Independents. We were proud to support the late great Jim Jeffords. This is one of those instances.

Letter to the editor: Jerome offers strong experience

Posted on September 20, 2018 |
By John Peterson



I am so happy to be able to cast a vote this November for Stephanie Jerome. I have known Stephanie and her husband for nearly 20 years now and cannot think of a better person to work for us in Montpelier.

Stephanie grew up in Rutland County attending local schools and UVM. When she and her husband, Brian, decided to raise a family they chose Brandon because of the strong sense of community they saw there and because of the local schools. Stephanie Jerome is a strong supporter of our local schools, which she believes are the bedrock of our community.

VERGENNES — The Mount Abraham Union High School boys’ soccer team broke through with a big second half on Monday to pull away from host Vergennes, 4-0.

After a scoreless first half in which the Eagles had more possession, but the Commodores countered dangerously to create as many chances as their visiting rivals, Mount Abraham asserted itself in the VUHS end.

Senior striker Weston Allred, with a hat trick, and senior midfielder William Wright, with a goal and two assists, proved to be the major thorns in the Commodores’ side.
