Matt Dickerson: Yes, jellyfish can be found in area waters

Posted on October 18, 2018 |
By Matt Dickerson



Dickerson, Matt ONLINE.jpg

For over two decades I’ve been writing an outdoor column with a special emphasis on fishing. I never thought I’d be writing about jellyfish, though. One reason is that they aren’t even fish; they are more accurately referred to as “jellies.” Another reason is that Vermont, by virtue of not having any ocean coastline, doesn’t have any jellies. Or so I thought.

Matt Dickerson: One-fish afternoon

Posted on October 4, 2018 |

Dickerson, Matt ONLINE.jpg

Alex and I had spent a couple hours fishing our way slowly up the Middlebury River. Though Alex had seen several small fish nipping at his flies, neither of us had yet slipped anything into the net.

Karl Lindholm: What's in a name — a championship?

Posted on September 27, 2018 |
By Karl Lindholm



lindholm.jpg

Mookie Betts.

What kind of name is that, for a grown-up? Or a big league ball player?

Sounds like a character in a kids’ book, or a cartoon figure. Who’s next — Pippi Longstocking, Wile E. Coyote?

“Mookie Betts” indeed. Best Red Sox name since Coco Crisp.

When he comes up to the plate as the lead-off hitter for the Red Sox, you’re justified in asking, “Who’s that high school kid?”

Andy Kirkaldy: Yes, that U.S. Open umpire was out of line

Posted on September 13, 2018 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



Kirkaldy, Andy ONLINE.jpg

Wow, that Naomi Osaka is some tennis player, huh? Strong with good court coverage, great groundstrokes, booming serves, and what a lot of poise under pressure against Madison Keys in the U.S. Open semifinal last week and then Serena Williams in Saturday’s final.

What a bright future. If she ever learns to take advantage of her height and quickness to develop a net game, Osaka could be the next great women’s tennis player, if she isn’t already.

And yet, sadly, that’s not what anybody is talking about. Thanks for nothing, Carlos Ramos.

Matt Dickerson: Summer of discovery by canoe, continued

Posted on September 6, 2018 |
By Matt Dickerson



Dickerson, Matt ONLINE.jpg

We slid the canoe down into the waters of Otter Creek and turned it parallel to the grassy shore. I held it steady while my wife, Deborah, stepped in, keeping her shoes dry. Since I was wearing water sandals, I had the privilege of pushing us away from shore and stepping in from ankle-deep water. A few seconds later we were paddling up the creek, away from the one-lane bridge and dam.

Karl Lindholm: Imperfect perfection — it ain't fair!

Posted on August 30, 2018 |
By Karl Lindholm



Karl Lindholm col Ruth Shore sitting online.jpg

Imagine this baseball game:

The first batter of the game walks on four pitches. The pitcher who issued the walk is outraged by the umpire’s calls. They exchange words and the pitcher charges the plate and punches the umpire in the face, whereupon he is summarily ejected from the game.

Two p.m. rolled around and we still hadn’t spotted one of the famous Alaskan brown bears we had come to Katmai National Park and Preserve to see.

Matt Dickerson: A big park and a small world

Posted on August 9, 2018 |
By Matt Dickerson



Dickerson DSC09535.jpg

At over four million acres, Alaska’s Lake Clark National Park and Preserve is more than two thirds as big as the entire state of Vermont. Yet the park receives only 23,000 visitors per year, which is less than 1/40th the number that will show up at Vermont state parks in a year.

The park’s headquarters sit off a gravel airstrip in the little village of Port Alsworth, whose year-round population is under 200, and whose 2018 graduating class at Tanalian High had seven students: the largest in school history.

Karl Lindholm: One goal: 'Pamoja Ngudu!'

Posted on August 2, 2018 |
By Karl Lindholm



Column by Karl 8 02 18 One Goal Lewiston.jpg

Ever been to Lewiston, Maine? Maybe to visit Bates College.

Lewiston is the second largest city in Maine — not Augusta, the capital, or Bangor in the north. 36,000 people live in Lewiston and another 23,000 reside in Auburn just across the bridge over the Androscoggin River.

That’s my hometown, Lewiston, where I grew up and why in some considerable measure I am who I am.
