Faith in Vermont: One Evening in Late September

Posted on October 1, 2013 | Blog Category:
By Faith Gong



Our family rarely goes out to eat these days. It’s not so much a matter of expense (although that’s certainly a factor with six mouths to feed); the expense of eating out is counterbalanced by the benefit of having a break from cooking. My economist husband would put it in terms of “opportunity cost:” a few extra dollars may be worth it if it saves you the time, energy and stress of preparing a meal.

Clippings by John Flowers: This little piggy won't cooperate

Posted on September 26, 2013 | Blog Category:
By John Flowrs



I’ve grown accustomed to seeing a lot of different cars, trucks, motorcycles, tractors and even deer chugging out of our dirt road and exiting onto Plank Road in Bristol during the past 20 years.

But what I saw a week ago Friday caused me to do a double take. No, make that a triple take.

Mid-way into my turn I found myself braking for none other than the Three Little Pigs, who had mounted a successful porcine prison break from their fenced-in house of sticks at our neighbors’ place.

Poet's Corner: A poet can show us the comfort in pain and fear

Posted on September 26, 2013 | Blog Category:
By Leonard Gibbs



The Poet: Deb Chadwick, a retired social worker, began writing poems to deal with an important loss, and then continued because she fell in love with the written word. She is a member of the Poetry Society of Vermont.

The Poem: Poets are not generally calm and peaceful people, protected from pain. Life is painful, and we need to share that pain … not for sympathy alone, but for the recognition of our common humanity. Poets and non-poets alike seek community. Poets are blest, or cursed, with a need to share, and to share dramatically … in words!

Jessie Raymond: How do we like them apples? Ground

Posted on September 12, 2013 | Blog Category:
By Jessie Raymond



Right now, a workhorse of a machine is sitting in my husband’s woodshop. If it works properly it’s going to make our lives a lot easier over the next couple weeks.

I found it last Saturday through sheer luck and good timing. At the time I was out running errands and whining loudly, as I tend to do, about how we needed an electric apple grinder to go with our cider press. (A grinder, or “scratter,” reduces apples to a pulp to allow for maximum juice extraction.)

Clippings by Andy Kirkaldy: Judge town office plan on its merits

Posted on September 12, 2013 | Blog Category:
By Andy Kirkaldy



Opposition continues to be heard to the new Middlebury municipal building proposal, some of it reasonable, but some of it apparently not based on the details of the plan itself.

Rather, some have cited past votes that supported keeping the current site as a rationale to say no to the selectboard’s current proposal. Others expressing opposition seem to be miffed they were not included in the process.

Faith in Vermont: Traffic in Vermont?

Posted on September 3, 2013 | Blog Category:
By Faith Gong



When we first moved to Vermont, my husband noticed something unusual about the news coverage on our local NPR affiliate: there was never any traffic report. To compensate, the weather forecast often ran as long as ten minutes.

Opinion: Misuse of langage stops me cold

Posted on August 26, 2013 | Blog Category:
By Abi Sessions



Field Days is finished; the hectic last few weeks of August are here, and it’s time for our kids to get ready to return to school. By “our kids” I don’t mean our own sweet cherubs. I mean our collective kids, the children of Addison County. It takes a village to raise a child, right?

And it takes a village to create a literate environment to model for our children that language and learning matter.
