Ways of Seeing: King's way of seeing is still needed

Posted on January 11, 2018 |
By Barbara Clearbridge



I have been reading an autobiography of Martin Luther King put together from his diaries, interviews, books, letters, and other sources. I am struck hard not only by the breadth of his wisdom, but by how apt it is for our times. Many of us have long been, or have recently become, activists. I hope to provide inspiration to you through King’s words.

“It must be remembered that genuine peace is not the absence of tension, but the presence of justice.”

Posted on January 11, 2018 |
By Jessica Danyow



I am writing to urge your readers who care about upholding Vermont’s standards of fair and sportsmanlike hunting to speak out against the statewide coyote “hunt” that is being scheduled for the entire month of February, 2018.

Letter to the Editor: Hugs seen as beneficial for all

Posted on January 11, 2018 |
By Alice Munson



What? No more hugs? How can I survive? I think what the world needs is more hugs. As we learn early in life, “love our neighbors and ourselves,” and that still holds true.

As a former Girl Scout leader I think they have it all wrong. Just a simple hug to a child that is hurt or just down does a great deal of good and makes them feel better.

Letter to the Editor: 'OneCare' approach not the right answer for health care

Posted on January 11, 2018 |
By G. Richard Dundas MD



I happened to see your article regarding our Vermont Accountable Care Organization called OneCare (Addison Independent, Jan. 4). It painted a rosy picture of how OneCare will save us all: improve our care, keep us healthy, and reduce our costs mainly by changing how providers and hospitals are paid. My bet is that OneCare will fail us.

Letter to the Editor: Addison Central cuts are going to far

Posted on January 11, 2018 |
By Ian Ross



Editor’s note: The writer sent this to the Addison Central School District board and copied the Independent.

I have three children currently and soon-to-be enrolled in the ACSD. I have been following the FY 2019 budget talks through recent Addison Independent articles. It is usually not possible for me to attend your Monday meetings, and we have a prior engagement during your meeting this Thursday, January 11th. Therefore, I am writing you with my views regarding this difficult decision.

Letter to the Editor: Mount Abe option is worthy studying

Posted on January 11, 2018 |
By David Brynn



Steve Harris’s essay entitled “A Slight Course Correction” in the Addison Independent’s Jan. 4, 2017 edition provides great food for thought. Steve makes a solid case for expanding objectives at Mt. Abe while reducing costs in hopes of producing better results. This is exactly the sort of thinking we should be employing.

Letter to the Editor: Column sparked happy memories

Posted on January 11, 2018 |
By Sylvia Coffin



I just received my Addison Independent in the mail for Dec. 21, 2017, rather late as it came on Jan. 2, 2018. A nice surprise as I found some good reading in it from before Christmas. I was particularly drawn to Jessie Raymond, “Around The Bend” — her account of the baking of a birthday cake for her grandson and the successful outcome. I was greatly amused with her addition to being hooked on the Hallmark Channel while producing the cake.

Editorial: Pot bill's passage is just the beginning of the discussion

Posted on January 11, 2018 |
By Angelo Lynn



With surprising speed, Vermont’s House (last week) and the Senate (on Wednesday) passed H.511, a bill that legalizes the possession of small amounts of marijuana for personal use. Gov. Phil Scott has said he will sign the bill into law — and it’s only the second week of the legislative session.
