Clippings: Driving to survive in das fast lane

Posted on August 26, 2010 |
By John Flowers



We recently returned from a week in Germany and I am still kicking myself for not bringing back the perfect souvenir — a T-shirt bearing the slogan, “I survived the autobahn.”

Around the bend: On-line auction gives cheap thrills

Posted on August 26, 2010 |
By Jessie Raymond



People tend to assume I’m mild-mannered just because I drive the speed limit, avoid trans fats and consider it a wild Friday night if I stay up until 10 knitting socks. But I’m a thrill-seeker, all right.

I get my kicks on eBay.

For the uninformed, eBay is a website where people can buy and sell items in an auction format. Find something you like, enter the highest (non-disclosed) amount you’re willing to spend, and click on Place Bid. Your bid will automatically be raised against competing bids until your limit is reached.

Posted on August 23, 2010 |
By Angelo Lynn



  Tomorrow is Vermont’s all-important primary. Four of the state’s elected offices have competitive primaries; there are competitive races among Republicans for the right to challenge U.S. Sen. Patrick Leady and U.S. Rep. Peter Welch; and we have a competitive write-in race for one of Addison County’s senate seats among Democrats. (See story, Page 1.)

By Angelo Lynn



Next Tuesday is one of the most important primary elections in Vermont’s recent history. Of the six state offices, four have competitive races. Five Democrats are vying for the right to confront Republican Brian Dubie in gubernatorial race. Two Democrats and two Republicans are in a party run-off in the lieutenant governor’s race and the secretary of state race; two Democrats are vying for the state auditor of accounts position to confront Republican incumbent Tom Salmon. Add to that a competitive three-way race among Republicans for the congressional seat held by Democrat incumbent Rep.

Clippings: Mountains offer new perspectives

Posted on August 19, 2010 |
By Andrea Suozzo



After spending most of a day driving through Montana and Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming, we’d turned east out of Grand Teton National Forest in the late afternoon, still with hundreds of miles to go before we stopped for the night.

Miles after the pine trees had vanished, replaced by sandy buttes and scrub brush, the snow-capped peaks still loomed behind us. Their peaks were etched sharply onto the deep blue sky, just like the mountains a small child would draw.

Between the Lines: Small town values remain strong

Posted on August 19, 2010 |
By Gregory Dennis



I was a little nervous as I headed to the reunion dinner at the VFW in the tiny western New York State town where I grew up.

My classmates and I were gathering from locations that ranged from an apartment down the street to a house in Thessaloniki, Greece.

I’m sure every one of us heading to the event felt a touch of the silly old fears that come with these gatherings. Then I spotted the big orange sign on the nearby bridge over the Erie Canal:

“WARNING: Emergency Scene Ahead.”

Guest Editorial: What it will take to win the war in Afghanistan

Posted on August 16, 2010 |
By Haviland Smith



David Kilcullen, one of the world’s leading counterinsurgency experts and preeminent advisor to the US government, says that we must meet certain markers if we are to “succeed” in Afghanistan: We must face the realities of historical and contemporary Afghanistan. There must be agreement between Afghans and Americans on our goals. We must eliminate the Taliban sanctuary in Pakistan. There must be a solid, long-term US commitment including a flexible timeline.

Guest Editorial: Postal service declines hurt rural Vermont

Posted on August 12, 2010 |
By Brattleboro Reformer



“Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds.”

So reads an inscription on the James Farley Post Office in New York City.

Perhaps it’s time to add, “... but a lack of funding, will.”

The Postal Service has ended its third quarter $3.5 billion in the red, according to a release issued Thursday, and officials are declaring they won’t be able to pay all of their 2011 obligations.

Clippings: Bird museum has carved a niche

Posted on August 12, 2010 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



As many times as I’ve been there, close to a half-dozen, maybe, I’m still not sure how to find the Birds of Vermont Museum in Huntington.

What I can say to anyone with even a passing interest in birds, nature or carving is that it is worth picking up an atlas (old school) or going online (non-Luddite) and learning how to get to the remote, gravel-surfaced byway of Sherman Hollow Road, where the museum may be found.
