Karl Lindholm: The importance of community – and hoop!

It’s gratifying when a Vermont kid does especially well at the local college.

One student from Vermont in this year’s senior class at Middlebury College has had a significant impact on student life — as well as the larger community.

First and foremost, this Vermonter is an ambitious and accomplished student, an Economics major with minor in Education Studies — with a GPA approaching 3.5.

Karl Lindholm: The antidote to November's gloom

November, ugh: so soon we go from warm to cold; the trees’ colorful leaves now carpeting the ground demanding to be raked; darkness coming right after lunch it seems; geese clattering overhead, black against a gray sky honking a valediction — and it will only get darker and gloomier ....

I’m not a winter person, runs in the family. You will not find Lindholms on the slopes or trails. It’s cold out. We come inside when it’s cold.

“’Ello Guv-nah.”

Time to check in with the Northeast Kingdom’s favorite son, Bill Lee, who has been much in the news lately: front page stories in the Boston Globe, Burlington Free Press, Seven Days, and a guest appearance on NPR’s “Wait, Wait, Don’t Tell Me.”

For some of us sports fans, a trip to the Olympics, with access to the prime sites of competition, is the stuff of dreams, bucket list material.

I’ve been to the Olympics once — in nearby Lake Placid in 1980, the “Miracle on Ice” Olympics. I had a great time, saw many Middlebury friends, and witnessed a terrific evening of competition on the ice at the Olympic Center (alas, it was ice dancing, a preliminary round, not ice hockey).

Karl Lindholm: 'A-ha! moments' and The Cuban Giants

Some time ago, spring 2003, I was doing research in the Sheldon Museum in town, looking at newspapers, the Middlebury Register, from the 1880s and ’90s.

I had been asked by Andy Wentink, the archivist at the Sheldon at the time, to prepare something on baseball as part of a series on Recreation and Leisure in Addison County in the 19th century.

It was interesting work, but something of needle-in-the-haystack research. I was looking for the earliest references to baseball in the Register.

Karl Lindholm: A passion for golf, friends and travel

Posted on July 7, 2016 |

I never played golf in St. Andrews in Scotland, but I was able go there a number of times as a part of my job at Middlebury College.

On my first visit, I took a taxi from the train station to the university right in the middle of town with other study abroad advisers from Williams and Mt. Holyoke. I sat in the passenger seat and chatted with the driver. “The birthplace of golf . . . I can’t wait to see the Old Course,” I said to the cabbie. “Where is it? Nearby?”

I begged my kids to come to Middlebury sporting events with me.

When a dad takes his kids to a game, he’s a good dad. If he goes by himself and leaves the kids at home, he’s borderline selfish.

In just my second year at Middlebury College, 1977, I visited old friend Russ Reilly in the field house. Russ was newly arrived to coach basketball at the college.

He introduced me to another new coach, a 24-year-old woman, Carson Lessels, who had come to Middlebury to lead the swimming and women’s basketball teams.

Russ coached basketball for 20 years and served as athletic director for nine more before retiring. Carson went on to coach at Middlebury for 38 years before she retired last spring.

It was just a short putt, about a foot and a half.

“Is that a ‘gimme?’” I asked.

“I’ll give you a gimme,” Chick replied, “if you gimme a gotcha.”

“What’s a gotcha?”

“You don’t want to know,” he said.

There were no gimmes when you played golf with Chick. No mulligans either.
