Ways of Seeing: Time to do a little sheep grazing

Posted on April 20, 2017 |
By Cheryl Mitchell



Our young granddaughter was here for part of lambing season this year. She wondered why we had to do chores so often. In the summer, we just tend the sheep once a day. This time of year, we may be checking every few hours. But she was game to try (usually) and we settled into a nice routine of checking on lambs, refilling water buckets, and offering hay and grain.

Posted on April 20, 2017 |
By Victor Nuovo



Now we come to Aristotle. Political science is only one of the sciences that he invented. He was the parent of many: logic, physics, biology, psychology, rhetoric, poetics, metaphysics and the theory of scientific method and explanation generally.

Note of appreciation: Local woman is grateful for local courteous service

Posted on April 20, 2017 |
By Louise Zimmer



I want to thank the staff at the Middlebury Natural Foods Co-op for the wonderful gracious way they go about serving their customers. When I inadvertently knocked over the Guinness cans causing one or two to split open, two staff were there in a flash to clean up and assure me not to worry about it. They actually seemed more concerned that some beer may have splashed on my jeans. Then later at checkout, the cashier was very helpful, getting me some boxes to pack my groceries as I had forgotten my reusable bags.

Letter to the Editor: Bottle deposit increase urged

Posted on April 17, 2017 |
By Alice Grau



Editor’s note: The writer asked us to publish this letter that she sent to Vermont Gob. Phil Scott.

Dear Gov. Scott,

Once again I am out picking up roadside trash for Green Up Day. The vast majority of the litter is beverage containers (Twisted Tea seems to be edging out Bud Light in our area) on which the 5-cent deposit is an insufficient deterrent. The amount of the deposit has not changed since it was instituted in the 1970s.

Letter to the Editor: Trump and Ryan became victims of their own hubris

Posted on April 17, 2017 |
By Larry Booker



Several millennia ago, when the ancient Greeks still worshipped their gods — Zeus, Apollo, Athene and the other Olympians — the mortals were warned not to defy the gods, or demonstrate inflated pride against them. This was called hubris, and several mortals did, in fact, defy the gods and they suffered from their bloated pride. Oedipus was one of them.
