Editorial: Rapid-fire changes at Porter done; let the healing begin

Posted on March 21, 2016 |
By Angelo Lynn



In a rare move at Porter Medical Center, the medical staff last Tuesday cast a vote of no-confidence in Porter’s CEO, Lynn Boggs, and delivered that decision on Friday morning. By Friday afternoon, Boggs had graciously submitted her resignation and the board promptly named Fred Kniffin, MD, to step in as interim CEO.

Editorial: Why Democrats need Bernie

Posted on March 16, 2016 |
By Angelo Lynn



After Tuesday’s primary wins in four states and a dead-heat in Missouri, Hillary Clinton made big strides in her push to claim the Democratic Party’s nomination for president. But Clinton’s campaign did the Democratic Party a disservice when campaign manager Robby Mook suggested in a memo to supporters that Clinton’s “pledged delegate lead is so significant that even a string of victories by Sen. Sanders over the next few weeks would have little impact.”

That’s a disservice for several reasons:

Editorial: Porter board takes critical steps to address discontent

Posted on March 10, 2016 |

By openly admitting fault in their process and being willing to scrap the existing salary contracts with physicians and other providers and start anew, the Porter management team took a critically important step to improving what rapidly was becoming a toxic environment at the Middlebury hospital campus.

Editorial: Bernie's not-so-bad Tuesday

Posted on March 3, 2016 |
By Angelo Lynn



America, Feel the Bern.

Hillary, certainly, is feeling the heat. Consider that if Sen. Sanders had collected an additional half percentage point in Massachusetts he would have won five primaries to Clinton’s six on a day that heavily favored Clinton’s strongest base of support. But for that half percentage point, the headlines would have been dramatically different.

Editorial: Revolution in our schools?

Posted on March 3, 2016 |
By Angelo Lynn



While Vermont’s junior senator Bernie Sanders is proclaiming a political revolution in his race for the Democratic presidential nomination, a quieter revolution is underway within Vermont’s schools. Act 46, passed last spring, is changing how our schools operate, hopefully for the better. The first step is unified governance, which was recently embraced by three area school districts, but that could be just the tip of the iceberg.

One perspective of that story can be viewed through the lens of the Leicester Elementary School.

Editorial: Signs of progress for 2016

Posted on January 4, 2016 |

When selecting the top 10 stories of the prior year, our emphasis is placed on the stories’ importance to the area in the short-term and the long-term consequences. Thus, when Vermont Gas Systems and International Paper Corporation abandoned the natural gas line expansion through Middlebury, Cornwall and Shoreham, and the Phase 1 pipeline came under review by the Public Service Board, the impact on the broader Addison County community vaulted the issue into the prime spot.

AS OCTOBER RECEDES further into the rearview mirror, a few trees on the island in Lake Dunmore stubbornly keep their leaves.

hundreds flying 2.jpg

IT’S THAT TIME of the year and my wife and I got up a bit earlier than usual Wednesday morning and headed out to the Dead Creek Wildlife Management Area in Addison to see the snow geese. While the numbers don’t rival the 10,000-plus birds the area used to attract a couple of decades ago, there are currently 2,000-plus geese in the area this week, according to recent reports, including many just feet from the viewing area when we visited.

On the wing

duo in flight, left facing.jpg

I TOOK THIS photo and others of birds on this website with a 300mm lens on my Nikon D300, hand-held with my auto focus on the blink. Because much of the action was shooting south or eastward (into the sun) I had to pick my shots looking west for better exposure, while the others were either shot overhead or southeastward, but still with suitable results.

Menacing

AN AFTERNOON VISIT might provide better light for photos, but I also found the morning sun helpful to produce the Alfred Hitchcock effect of hundreds of geese commandeering the sky.
