Editorial: Firing up the race for Senate

Posted on July 30, 2018 |
By Angelo Lynn



The recent news that two Independents will join the race for Vermont Senate for Addison County fires up what was already an interesting race as Democratic Sen. Claire Ayer is stepping down from her seat after serving for 16 years, creating an open seat. Fellow Democratic Senator Chris Bray, New Haven, will run for re-election.

Editorial: If Trump were a Democrat!

Posted on July 26, 2018 |
By Angelo Lynn



If Donald Trump were a Democrat and president, can you imagine how outraged Republicans would be? Let’s count the ways:

• Trump took a knee in Helsinki, essentially kowtowing to Russian President Vladimir Putin, and trashing our own intelligence team and, by extension, our armed services. After years of counting Russia as their mortal enemy, Republicans before Trump would have been apoplectic. Even Veteran groups protested Trump’s weakness and defended the truthfulness of America’s press.

Here’s a challenge for Addison County residents: Find an area dedicated to public use that needs cleaning up and work out a way to get it done.

Why do it? Three reasons: First, it’s not that hard. Second, it’s rewarding. Third, it’ll make life in the neighborhood more pleasant and special.

Editorial: A treasonous Trump revealed, or a cult leader better defined?

Posted on July 19, 2018 |

Of the dozens of political columns we read about Donald Trump’s meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki this past Monday, long-time conservative columnist (and erstwhile Republican) George Wills captured Trump’s galling performance in the most accurate terms:

“In Helsinki, the president who bandies the phrase “America First,” put himself first, as always, and America last, behind President Vladimir Putin’s regime…

What a glorious week it was. Throughout Addison County, it was relatively cool and dry and in Middlebury that blessed the 40th annual Festival on-the-Green with near perfect weather to match unrivaled music from a wide variety of musicians. That variety is what the Festival does best: exposing us all to an eclectic mix of musicians to broaden our appreciation of different songs, beats and rhythms.

Editorial: Route 7 strip? Master planning is the right approach

Posted on July 12, 2018 |
By Angelo Lynn



Plans for further commercial development along Route 7 South in Middlebury initially spark thoughts of alarm, muted by the opportunity to embrace benefits that might come with new jobs, more services and access to goods that could make Middlebury a more vibrant community.

The alarm comes from the prospect of urban sprawl along Route 7.

Editorial: Stop the madness!

If you’re an American patriot and a believer in democracy, these goals for the country should resonate: As a nation, we should strive to create a society and government that diffuses power to the many, not concentrate it in the hands of the few; embrace the diverse, not just the similar; don’t use up the future to serve the immediate (yes, that refers to climate change); and champion a society that respects and protects basic human rights and decencies, not a crazed pursuit of power and money. Most Americans would agree with those broad principles and goals.

The shooting deaths of five journalists at the offices of the Capital Gazette in Annapolis, Maryland last Thursday is another tragic story tied to a sickness in American culture: the appeal of mass shootings by those who feel wronged.

Editorial: 'A summer can last a lifetime'

Israel Dudley’s experience living with a Middlebury family through the Fresh Air Fund is as heart-warming as any story could be. An inner-city youth from Brooklyn, he first came to Vermont as a 11-year-old to live with the Matt and Deborah Dickerson family, who at the time had three sons at their rural home in Bristol.
