Legislative Review: Cordes energized for next year

Posted on June 6, 2019 |
By Mari Cordes



Cordes, Mari.jpg

“The two parties which divide the State, the party of Conservatism and that of Innovation are very old, and have disputed the possession of the world ever since it was made ... Now one, now the other gets the day, and still the fight renews itself as if for the first time, under new names and hot personalities ... Innovation is the salient energy; Conservatism the pause on the last movement.” — Ralph Waldo Emerson

Legislative Review: Hardy reviews eventful session

Posted on June 6, 2019 |
By Ruth Hardy



Hardy, Ruth 2018.jpg

Last week the 2019 Vermont Senate adjourned and my first legislative session officially came to an end. Despite a somewhat rocky finale, I’m happy to report that the legislature accomplished a great deal to help Vermonters, protect our people and environment, and sustain a healthy economy. As a member of the Education and Agriculture committees and an advocate for women and families, I was fortunate to work on legislation that will have a direct impact on the people of the Addison District.

Jessie Raymond: How much gardening can I take?

Posted on June 6, 2019 |
By Jessie Raymond

All spring, I looked forward to putting in my vegetable garden. After years of planting way too much — biting off more than I could hoe, you might say — I decided this year to embrace a “less is more” philosophy.

In early April, I started just four tomatoes, along with a few other veggies, from seed, and set them in the kitchen window.

Opinion: The inevitability of an impeachment inquiry

Posted on June 6, 2019 |
By Stephen C. Terry



To impeach President Donald Trump or to not impeach is the latest political guessing game.

Special Counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, appears to have laid out a roadmap for the Democratic House to begin an impeachment investigation.

Despite building momentum among House Democrats to have their Judiciary Committee launch an impeachment inquiry, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi fears it will fail.

Ways of Seeing by Leeya Tudek: Spring beauty belies big problems

Posted on June 6, 2019 |
By Leeya Tudek



Tudek, Leeya.jpg

Spring always comes late to Lincoln, the delay only making its arrival more glorious. All in the first warm day it seems, the apple trees flower, the grass greens and dandelions explode yellow across the meadows. The barn swallows cut through the air chasing after gnats, garter snakes bask in the heat, and wood frogs continue their mellowed peeping from the forest.

The earth awakens with a new energy, spreading vitality like pollen on the wind. Each year of my life, when the trees bud and the air sweetens, I feel a kind of peace.

By Trent Campbell



Regarding Angelo Lynn’s May 23 editorial, I truly appreciate your beautifully written words just as I appreciate your words of kindness and support throughout my many years at the paper.

And I am happy to say that my great co-workers are also my great friends.

Letter to the editor: Plastic bottles a huge waste

Posted on June 6, 2019 |
By Peter Grant



On Page 4A of your May 30 newspaper, there was a photo of adult college graduates doing something harmful to our environment, with a caption that seems to encourage such waste. They were being handed single-use water bottles.
