Discover your connection to the natural world at Middlebury talk

Posted on February 12, 2018 |
By Addison Independent



MIDDLEBURY — On Friday Feb. 16, community residents have an opportunity to explore two potentially transformative concepts: the personhood of the natural world, and the development of legal rights for nature. An evening community forum at the Congregational Church of Middlebury will explore how millennia-old beliefs of Native Americans could transform the consciousness of 21st century people, and together we will examine how we can apply this worldview to environmental law and policy.

Fresh Beats: Ron Powers reviews 'Follow My Heart' by Pauline Frechette

Posted on February 12, 2018 |
By Ron Powers



With her latest EP release, “Follow My Heart,” Pauline Frechette creates emotional music that is simple and melodic with poetic lyrics that tell her story. The EP includes both a vocal version and instrumental version of the same song. In the vocal rendition, Pauline’s technically demanding tune is delivered with such a purity of heart and with such honesty that it created quite a visceral effect on me. I felt myself pulled into her world. In fact, I was caught quite unaware of how deeply it affected me emotionally.

Movie review: 'The Shape of Water'

Posted on February 12, 2018 |
By Joan Ellis



The Shape of Water.jpg

The Shape of Water — Running Time: 2:03 — Rating: R

This is a tough one. On one hand, “The Shape of Water” offers us hatred, cruelty, nudity, violence, murder and beatings. On the other, it offers a tender love story between two afflicted people who lose themselves in a beautiful romance. The time is the Cold War. The place is a dark, decrepit Baltimore building that is a lab space for creating a creature that will become a weapon against the Russians.

By Addison Independent



The recent heavy snowfall reminds us that clearing driveways, sidewalks and parking lots in winter is no small job. The Outdoor Power Equipment Institute is offering tips for safe and correct use of snow throwers, often referred to as snow blowers.

“Weather today is more unpredictable than ever, and you need to have your snow thrower serviced and ready to power up,” says OPEI President and CEO Kris Kiser. “You want to have the right fuel on hand and review your owner’s manual now so you can use your equipment safely.”

Letter to the editor: Don't use income tax to finance education

Posted on February 12, 2018 |
By Sam Prouty



I am writing to express concern regarding the state legislature’s potential plan to fund schools via an income tax as a way to reduce property taxes. Let me state up front that simplifying the tax code and reducing our taxes are both commendable ideas that most people can easily support. However, given already precarious school budgets (most of our area schools are facing significant cuts to programs, personnel, or both), this plan could easily lead to further financial challenges in our schools.
