At one of the longest town meetings in recent memory, about 250 Middlebury residents spent 4 hours and 20 minutes deliberating a number of issues, starting with the proposed budget, which took the better part of two hours. It passed on a voice vote, with numerous questions from the audience but no final opposition.

By Andy Kirkaldy



Lots of playoff headlines yesterday and today.

The big news on Sunday came out of Middlebury College, where in the wake of the men’s basketball team’s convincing 89-73 takedown of Albertus Magnus on Saturday night, the NCAA awarded the 26-3 Panthers a sectional tournament this weekend. (See details on that game and photos from the Panthers’ Friday win over Morrisville in our Monday paper.)

Sen. Olympia Snowe on why she is stepping down

Posted on March 2, 2012 | Blog Category:
By Angelo Lynn and political



Here’s U.S. Senator Olympia Snowe, R-Maine, explaining why she is not running for a fourth term for the Senate as had been expected. Snowe has been a moderate Republican voice and one of the few Republicans willing to cross party lines to forge a compromise. She laments the loss of bipartisanship in the Senate and in politics. As former U.S. Sen. James Jeffords, I-Vermont, did almost a decade ago, she is leaving her post discouraged by a party and a political system that seems to have lost its way. It’s an informative and important piece to read.

This week may bring the largest snowstorm of the winter to Addison County, but it will pale in comparison to the storms of last year - and to the forecasts many made last fall of a snowy winter.  As winter nears its end, it is a good time to look back at these winter forecasts and see how they fared against actual conditions.

Staff Blog: Revisiting Lincoln's Cooper Union Address

Posted on February 27, 2012 | Blog Category:
By Angelo S. Lynn



In this political era in which the leading Republicans of the land stumble over themselves to reject the wisdom of separating church in state in a political context; in which cutting taxes to corporations is the panacea for all that ails us; in which cow-towing to the fanatical wing of the party is the only path to the nomination; it is instructive and nostalgic, perhaps, to want to revisit President Abraham Lincoln’s speech on slavery made in the Cooper Union, New York City on Feb. 27, 1860 – 152 years ago.

On the ball: H.S. playoffs arrive

Posted on February 27, 2012 | Blog Category:
By Andy Kirkaldy



As expected, the Vergennes Union High School boys’ basketball team and both Middlebury Union hockey teams learned on Monday from the Vermont Principals’ Association they would host first-round playoff games.

The 18-2 Commodore boys earned the top seed for the Division II playoffs and will host No. 16 Lamoille (6-14) on Tuesday at 7 p.m. A win on Tuesday means VUHS will host a Friday quarterfinal at 7 p.m. against either No. 8 Fair Haven (10-10) or No. 9 Bellows Falls (11-9). The Commodores have not faced any of those three teams this season.
