Now we come to Aristotle. Political science is only one of the sciences that he invented. He was the parent of many: logic, physics, biology, psychology, rhetoric, poetics, metaphysics and the theory of scientific method and explanation generally.
Dinners with Love hosted its second annual Comfort Food for a Cause on Sunday, April 2. It was wonderful to share another evening of great food, music and company with the community of supporters that surrounds Dinners with Love. I am thrilled to share that our organization received more than $7,600 from our very generous donors.
I want to thank the staff at the Middlebury Natural Foods Co-op for the wonderful gracious way they go about serving their customers. When I inadvertently knocked over the Guinness cans causing one or two to split open, two staff were there in a flash to clean up and assure me not to worry about it. They actually seemed more concerned that some beer may have splashed on my jeans. Then later at checkout, the cashier was very helpful, getting me some boxes to pack my groceries as I had forgotten my reusable bags.
BRISTOL — Local lawmakers on Monday served notice that legislation aimed at creating publicly financed primary health care in Vermont will not advance until next year, at the earliest.

BRISTOL — It’s almost impossible to imagine newly hired Mount Abraham Union High School Assistant Principal Justin Bouvier outside the halls of the school where he’s worked for over a decade and from which he graduated almost 20 years ago.
The 35-year-old Bristol native has built a career out of helping young people — especially those who struggle the most.
But what most teens roaming the halls of MAUHS might not realize is that Bouvier’s own path to success wasn’t always clear or certain.
MIDDLEBURY — Dennis Wygmans had always envisioned himself as someone who would bring entertainment to the masses, whether as co-owner of the former Burlington nightclub Club Toast or as a budding attorney looking to represent rising stars in the music industry.
But about 10 years ago, Wygmans flipped the script. He decided to make the courtroom his new stage, where real-life dramas play out for the highest of stakes — justice.

BRISTOL — Margaret Owen has kept track of the things she’s heard over her 90 years on this Earth.
The Bristol resident took the time to write down some of the old sayings or superstitions that people used to use and some still are used.
Some of them are filled with wisdom, some of them are a little silly. Many of them can make you stop and think.
1. Comb your hair in the dark, you’ll comb sorrow into your heart.
2. Clean hair out of your comb and burn it, or you could lose all your hair.
