Letter to the editor: Mandatory measures needed to preserve the planet

Posted on December 6, 2018 |
By Willa Brown



For those of you following international news, you may be aware that the UN has recently released several reports on the climate crisis. The first one shows a consensus that we have much less time — between 10 and 20 years — to avoid a global catastrophe. The second reveals that we have done less in terms of emissions reduction than even our least ambitious targets. In other words, our children are facing a world that will no longer be habitable and yet we are doing nearly nothing to prevent it.

Editorial: Multi-use path in Midd would be a win-win

Posted on December 3, 2018 |
By Angelo Lynn



Several area organizations lent their support at last Monday’s Middlebury selectboard meeting to a proposal to build a multi-use gravel pathway from the Middlebury Union Middle School to East Middlebury. The pathway would depart the existing Trail Around Middlebury just south of the high school lacrosse field on Creek Road heading south on that existing gravel road, eventually cutting across to the east side of Route 7 and continuing to Route 125 and East Middlebury sidewalks.

By T. Calabro



Vermont’s congressional delegation this week released a joint statement expressing concern over upcoming operations with Vermont by the federal Border Patrol.

Letter to the editor: Changing times show need for responsible gun laws

Posted on December 3, 2018 |
By Ian Ross



Before my family came to live in Middlebury in 1994, we lived in Pittsburgh for two years. In fact, we lived on a one-way cobble stone road in Squirrel Hill. I have fond memories of living there. The local Elementary and High schools, a sizeable park, and countless businesses were within walking distance of our house. I remember learning to play Street Fighter on an arcade game at one of the local newsstands.

Posted on November 29, 2018 |
By Angelo Lynn



In the whitest state in the union, why attend a talk and workshop this coming Sunday on white privilege and how it perpetuates our nation’s cloaked embrace of racism? Just how important is this discussion, and what on Earth does this have to do with you?

More than you know.

Ways of Seeing by Alice Leeds: Dealing with the Pittsburgh shooting

Posted on November 29, 2018 |
By Alice Leeds



Leeds, Alice online with name.jpg

Each night as I fall asleep I feel gratitude for my good fortune that day — photos we received of our new grandson, golden leaves still hanging onto their limbs, the brisk morning walk around our neighborhood, the delicious meal my husband and I shared that evening. My daily life is filled with blessings.
