n Singers invited to learn Womens March anthem.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — Interested singers will gather together at the Champlain Valley Unitarian Universalist Society on Saturday, Feb. 18, to learn and sing the march “anthem” that went viral at the Women’s March in Washington, D.C., just after the inauguration.

Besides having a good time (with conversation and refreshments after the singing), organizers hope singers in Addison County will feel empowered to sing this song “I Can’t Keep Quiet” at pertinent venues such as future marches or vigils.

Guest Editorial: Trump travel ban strikes at heart of American values

Posted on February 6, 2017 |
By Laurie L. Patton



This has been a distressing week for the greater Middlebury community, as it has been for many Americans. As an institution of higher learning, Middlebury holds dear the value of the free exchange of ideas, the principle of open discourse, and the importance of bringing together people of diverse backgrounds and beliefs to study, teach, and work in a free and open society. It is central to who we are.

Letter to the editor: Coyote hunt especially badly timed

Posted on February 6, 2017 |
By Marc Beaudette



While not illegal under our currently inadequate wildlife rules, the coyote-killing competition happening next week in Bristol is inhumane and should be disparaged. Coyotes are one of the few species that form monogamous pairs AND the males assist the mother in pup-rearing, along with other family members.

Letter to the editor: Hunting contest counter-productive

Posted on February 6, 2017 |
By Renate Callahan



It seems there is no end to the outrage and dangers to which our Vermont wildlife is subjected. The latest is a coyote killing contest being organized in Bristol. For the entry fee of $25, coyotes — every gender, every age, even pups — will be killed in unlimited numbers and under terrifying circumstances for no other reason than that these humans feel like shooting them.

Letter to the editor: New alliances needed to stand up to Trump, Bannon

Posted on February 6, 2017 |
By Amy Graham



Dear Sen. Leahy, Sen. Sanders, and Congressman Welch: Thank you for all you are doing to stand up to Trump and Bannon’s dangerous agenda for America. A few days ago I wrote an email urging you to obstruct and resist Trump’s agenda in every way you can. As predicted, the Democrats’ attempt to delay confirmation hearings for Cabinet nominees simply resulted in Senate Republicans changing the rules and confirming nominees without input from the Democrats.

By Andy Kirkaldy



ADDISON COUNTY — In local high school boys’ basketball play in the latter half of last week, Middlebury split a pair of close games and Otter Valley picked up a big win, but Vergennes and Mount Abraham each cropped a pair of contests.
