Posted on February 19, 2014 |
By Kathleen Brisson



Shoreham voters: Please consider me, Kathleen Brisson, as “write-in” candidate for town treasurer.

Opinion: Resist Middlebury College's sprawl further into town

Posted on February 17, 2014 |

Jessie Raymond: Auction goers bid adieu to reason

Posted on February 13, 2014 |
By Jessie Raymond

Clippings: Tweet from Boston: Print is not dead

Posted on February 13, 2014 |
By Angelo Lynn



Raise your hand if you’ve been to a professional convention, trade show, or other event held to honor winners, provide training, and help you network with colleagues in the greater region.

We go every February to the stately Boston Park Plaza for the New England Newspaper and Press Association convention, attend seminars over two days, have at least one good dinner out on the town, celebrate well-deserved awards, and then head back for a Sunday at home. It’s fun, engaging and we all learn more than we ever expect.
