By Bill Finger



In the Aug. 14 primary Addison-4 voters are fortunate to have four well-intentioned Democrats seeking to fill two seats representing the district in the Vermont General Assembly. The winners of this contest will face Republicans, incumbent Fred Baser and hopeful Valerie Mullin.

Letter to the editor: Holmes deserves to be Addison County's next sheriff

Posted on August 9, 2018 |
By Sandy Crossman



I am supporting Ron Holmes for Sheriff as I believe he has proven his dedication to the community. There is no one that cares more about safety in the schools, homes, or streets.

I met Ron about seven years ago at Helen Porter when both our mothers were patients there. He was a consummate and constant caretaker as he quietly showed his loyalty. This is the kind of person that will best serve Addison County — one that has loyalty, integrity, dedication and honor.

Poetry: Last dog at the dog park

By Gary Margolis



You and me and the fenced-in

faux hydrant. Private land gone

public. Half-field. Half-lawn.

 

Here in Middlebury. Where

you wouldn’t think we’d need

a half-acre of closed space.

 

For you to run around, eat,

do your daily business.

We owners take account of.

 

Making sure no one forgets.

Doesn’t look to see what’s

incumbent on each of us to see,

Letter to the editor: Expect business as usual at the One Dollar Market

By Farhad and Amtul Kahn



We would like to take this opportunity to thank John Flowers for writing about our upcoming trip for Hajj to Saudi Arabia. This is a unique opportunity presented to us and we are blessed to embark on this spiritual journey.

While we had mentioned to John that we may have to close the store for the duration, we are thrilled to say that one of our cousins is going to be here and take care of the store in our absence.

Letter to the editor: Ehlers is the best pick for governor

Posted on August 6, 2018 |
By Clark Hinsdale



I was pleased to vote for Phil Scott two years ago given his record of bipartisanship during his time in the Vermont Senate. However, the vetoes and partisanship that marked the end of this legislative session has changed my mind and many other minds as well. We need to support our Legislature and Congressional delegation by electing a governor who will work with them and not against them.

Clippings: Shared birthdays show what matters

Last Sunday, for the 23rd time, I blew out birthday candles with my great-grandmother. This time, though, was particularly special — my great-grandmother Lorraine turned 100 on July 24, my birthday as well.

Jessie Raymond: Welcome to the jungle, er, bedroom

Posted on August 2, 2018 |
By Jessie Raymond

This past weekend, I did something courageous: I stood up to the schefflera in our bedroom.

If a schefflera were some kind of mythical, multiheaded beast, you’d probably be impressed (although you might wonder how it got into our bedroom). In truth, a schefflera, also known as an umbrella tree, is just a houseplant. Still, I showed great courage.

That thing had been intimidating me for years.

By Jim Condos



Condos, Jim ONLINE SMALL.jpg

The Aug. 14 Vermont Primary Election is just two weeks away. While there has been some indication of lower voter turn-out, I hope that as Vermonters, we can make sure that’s not the case in our state.

Voting is the foundation of our democracy. When you go to the polls on Primary Day and Election Day, you’re helping shape the future of our towns, our state and our country. Mark your calendars today — August 14 and November 6 — and be sure to vote.
