Note of appreciation: Lunch program thankful for support

Posted on September 2, 2018 |
By Jennifer Urban



I’m writing this letter on behalf of MiddSummer Lunch and Recreation Program. In August we finished up our 14th year in operation and had a fantastic summer. 

We serve children all throughout Addison County ranging in age from 8-13. Some of these children qualify for subsidy, others receive scholarships, and some attend just to make new friends. The majority of our campers had experiences this summer they wouldn’t have had if it had not been for the generosity of many people and organizations.

Guest editorial: Next war more about systems of control, not ideology

Posted on August 30, 2018 |
By Emerson Lynn



For all of its warts, it was believed that social media and technology would be the fuel that continued to light the way for future democracies the world over. Authoritarians would not be able to control the spread of ideas, or opposition. This sense of freedom, and power of information, is what brought down the Soviet Union, and what prompted Tiananmen Square and what ignited the Arab Spring. And it would continue.

That was then.

Clippings by Andy Kirkaldy: Modern rules for the road, rotaries

Posted on August 30, 2018 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



Kirkaldy, Andy ONLINE.jpg

Many drivers curse, shake their fists and make certain other impolite gestures at other drivers, including at me, to express their impatience and frustration.

OK, I won’t claim to be a perfect driver, but those other folks, let me tell you…

Let’s face it: Most of us think we’re pretty good behind the wheel, and that it’s other drivers who are dangerous and incompetent.

Jessie Raymond: Pantry building, step by (slow) step

Posted on August 30, 2018 |
By Jessie Raymond

In May of 2017, Mark started building me a pantry — the old-school walk-in pantry I’ve been dreaming of for years — pledging that I would have a finished space by November.

Thanksgiving came and went, and my pantry did not get done. Mark, always the card, says he never specified which November. He also insists that he’s not the one who’s been holding up the schedule.

He hasn’t wanted to pressure me, he claims, but in fact he’s been dying to start framing the cabinets. I just haven’t given him any plans.

Greg Dennis: 'Rise for Climate' set for Sept. 8

Posted on August 30, 2018 |
By Greg Dennis



Dennis, Greg ONLINE.jpg

President Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Paris climate agreement left many people with the impression there’s not much America could do about global warming until we get a new administration.

But now an international climate conference — and thousands of local events planned ahead of that gathering — are giving new hope to those who see climate change as a moral issue and a mortal threat to civilization.

Ways of Seeing by Ruth Farmer: Lifting my voice

Posted on August 30, 2018 |
By Ruth Farmer



Farmer, Ruth.jpg

Last night, I sang with 30 or so women at one of the open sings regularly offered by Womensing, a local a capella group. This was a perfect way to finally shake off the mental and physical fatigue that had descended upon me after directing a ten-day residency that required me to work 12 hours a day.

Singing has always brought me pleasure and, as it turns out, it is physiologically and emotionally beneficial.

Letter to the editor: Defining Trump Tower meeting

Posted on August 30, 2018 |
By John-Eric Colley Robinson



Merriam Webster defines treason as “the offense of attempting by overt acts to overthrow the government of the state to which the offender owes allegiance.”

What does one call seeking and obtaining the aid of foreign nationals and their respective nation’s resources to undermine the character of one’s opponent and gain the presidency of one’s nation?

What a small small man Donald Trump is to not fly the flag at half staff from the death through the funeral of John McCain.
