Opinion: Two stand out in Addison-1 race

Posted on July 28, 2016 |
By David Andrews



In the upcoming Democratic primary, Middlebury voters are blessed with good candidate choices for the Vermont House of Representatives: incumbent Rep. Amy Sheldon along with two newcomers, Robin Scheu and Jill Charbonneau — all running for Middlebury’s two seats.

I’m sure that any of the three would represent us well, but I plan to vote for Jill Charbonneau in addition to Amy Sheldon, who has already established herself as a strong voice for the environment and for action toward energy independence and limiting climate change.

Farm to ballet37 megan stearns and calf photographer joey jones @ photospoke.jpg

NEW HAVEN — Megan Stearns is in mid-air. Her back leg is straight, toe pointed, and her front leg is outstretched, hurtling her body toward the ground.

Stearns is a ballerina — she’s danced her entire life — but she’s used to landing on a dance studio’s solid wood floor. Now, in this fraction of a second, while she floats several feet from the Earth, she’ll have to prepare herself to land on an uneven, unknown surface.

Posted on July 28, 2016 |
By Sam Hartley



The atmosphere was tense in this country following the highly publicized killings of two black men, Alton Sterling and Philando Castile, by police officers earlier this month.

Posted on July 28, 2016 |
By Jim Schesinger



Although the general election is almost four months away, the opponents of free speech are ramping up their activities.

I am supporting Valerie Mullin in her bid to win one of the two seats that Addison District-4 has in the Vermont House of Representatives. Twice in the last month, her yard signs have been stolen from the bottom of my driveway. The last incident happened on the night of July 22. As a result of this brazen act of intolerance and thievery, the police have been notified.
