Between the Lines, Gregory Dennis: When a big birthday arrives

Posted on August 17, 2017 |
By Gregory Dennis



All the usual clichés apply. You live your life, try to be a good person and have some fun along the way — and then one day you wake up and you’re 65 years old. How in the world did that happen?

Medicare turns out to be more complicated than they make it sound. Anybody turning 65 is grateful for it. But it’s not socialized medicine. It’s subsidized healthcare — and more expensive than many of us thought.

EAST MIDDLEBURY — The recent flying of Confederate flags on at least two private properties in Middlebury is being condemned by many area residents still reeling in the aftermath of white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Va., that left one woman dead, numerous people injured, and a nation in need of healing.

Locals noted the Confederate flags flying this past weekend at a Case Street home in the village of East Middlebury and another that was still flying on Wednesday at a School House Hill Road residence east of the airport.

Victor Nuovo: Does the Mind always think?

Posted on August 17, 2017 |
By Victor Nuovo

Locke’s book, An Essay Concerning Human Understanding, is a wonderful resource for this. He asks all the right questions, even though he does not always give the right answers. The pleasure of reading Locke’s book derives from learning what it is to be a rational being.

Ways of Seeing, Laurie Cox: Warm reception in cold countries

Posted on August 17, 2017 |
By Laurie Cox



About one hundred years ago, all four of my grandparents immigrated to this country, two as children, two as young adults. They arrived not speaking the language, wearing the garb of their native lands, with little money or resources.

ADDISON COUNTY — The sound of gunfire way off in the woods is not unfamiliar to folks who enjoy trekking through the forests of Addison County. For Bill Mathis, who lives adjacent to a gravel pit turned shooting range in Goshen, that distant salvo has turned into bullets flying past as he sits on his porch.

“It’s (happened) probably four or five times,” Mathis said. “It is a bit disconcerting to have bullets whiz over your head.”

NEW HAVEN — When the strongest (and the most cunning) male and female athlete step up to the padded table in the Show Tent at the Addison County Fair and Field Days each August, you know there is going to be a lot of straining, a fair amount of sweating and sometimes a little bit of crowing when one competitor drives another competitor’s wrist to the table.
