Here are a few numbers to remember: In Addison County, 20 program sites will serve free breakfasts and/or lunches in seven communities to more than 250 children five days a week for just the program in Middlebury. Statewide, more than 7,800 children consume free-or reduced-priced meals. It’s a summer substitute for the free meals programs offered at our schools throughout the academic year.

By Angelo Lynn



The petition to reclassify the 15,500-acre Otter Creek Wetland Complex from a Class II status to Class I poses some interesting questions as to what is to be gained, but at the very least the months of discussion that is likely to ensue will teach Addison County residents about the invaluable functions and “irreplaceable values” of what is the state’s largest wetland.

Editorial: Everyone wants family leave, but at what cost?

Posted on June 17, 2019 |
By Angelo Lynn



The push for a federal family leave benefit has been building ever since the two-income family became the norm two, maybe three decades ago, and single mothers became a larger part of the nation’s demographic.
