Clippings: Losing battle for the perfect photo

Posted on December 1, 2011 |
By Trent Campbell



As a photojournalist I don’t really fit the mold. Compared to other shooters out there I am pretty laid back and quiet. I try not to get in anybody’s way (sorry if I have ever been in your way) and, please don’t tell my boss, I am not always willing to do anything to get “the shot.”

Editorial: OWS needs a sharper focus

Posted on November 28, 2011 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



The slogan, “we are the 99.9 percent,” is certainly catchy, but how does it help define the Occupy Wall Street movement? Or better yet, what does define the movement?

Editorial: What the supercommittee's failure says about Congress

Posted on November 23, 2011 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



The inability of the congressional “supercommittee” to reach agreement on how to reduce the nation’s deficit by $1.2 trillion over a decade corresponds directly with a recent New York Times/NBCpoll showing a record 84 percent of Americans disapprove of how Congress is doing its job, and that its approval rating has hit rock bottom at just 9 percent. That’s an all-time low; less support than even President Richard M. Nixon had during Watergate.

Clippings: Learning the ABCs of newspapers

Posted on November 23, 2011 |
By John S. McCright



A teacher from an area grade school called the other day and asked if she could bring her kids around to find out how a newspaper is made. I told her I’d be happy to share what I knew, and we talked about a day and time for the visit.

After I got off the phone I realized I didn’t know the ages of the kids who would be visiting. I knew they weren’t high schoolers. She might have said something about second grade. Good heavens, what would I have to say to children so young?

Review: 'Funny Girl' knocks it out of the park

Posted on November 21, 2011 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



play9716.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — Sensational. Powerful. Delightful. Heart-wrenching. Laugh out loud funny.

The Middlebury Community Players’ production of Funny Girl has one-upped Hollywood, out-staged Broadway and, much like the character she plays as Fanny Brice, unleashed a new star to the Middlebury stage — Kim Anderson.

The show, which opened last Thursday at the Town Hall Theater and continues this weekend, tells the story of comedienne Fanny Brice and her rise from the slums of New York to stardom in the Ziegfeld Follies.

Editorial: Meeting goes awry in Bristol

Posted on November 17, 2011 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



Chico Martin, vice-chairman of the Bristol Planning Commission, was not only disrespectful to a citizen of Bristol, but very likely was in violation of the state’s open meetings law when he prevented long-time Bristol resident John ‘Slim’ Pickens from seeking a clarification on a pertinent topic facing the commission.

Editorial: Democracy teeters in nation's big cities as press is silenced

Posted on November 17, 2011 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



hat’s going on in our nation’s big cities? Police are swooping in with full-on military tactics, including air support from helicopters in one city, riot gear, pepper spray, tear gas and automatic weapons to do what? Bust up non-violent groups of American citizens protesting the corporate greed that has decimated the nation’s middle class and enriched the rich? That hardly justifies a military-style assault.

Clippings: Mystery leads to veteran's story

Posted on November 17, 2011 |
By John Flowers



For years they sat in an old cedar chest, an odd coupling among a morass of ramshackle household furnishings and chachkas harvested from my late grandfather’s home when he died around seven years ago.

The first item was a leather-covered, wood-framed box, around 14 inches by 15 inches. The opening flap bears a large, white number “13,” with a few buckles and strap remnants at both ends.

Around the Bend: Gabby girl gets her party game on

Posted on November 17, 2011 |
By Jessie Raymond



I suffer from a mild but chronic condition known casually as Foot in Mouth Disease. There is no cure.

The condition is most common among people like me who (a) talk a lot and (b) are incapable of thinking before speaking. I’m the one who will greet sickly coworkers by saying, “Wow, you look terrible.” My genuine concern goes unappreciated.
