The other, dated June 28 (“Overpopulation issue overstated”), came from Father Luke Austin of Middlebury.

Letter to the editor: Roe v. Wade means rights for all, not just for wealthy

Posted on July 16, 2018 |
By Alexander Lyall



The new judge, Kavanaugh, is looking to sit on the big bench as a conservative and is likely comfortable in the right-to-life camp. The base seems happy with that.

Someday someone close to the Judge will leave home for college where more than half of her peers will encounter sexual abuse. Some of those will experience unwanted pregnancy.

Middlebury eyes plan for growth on Route 7

Posted on July 12, 2018 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — The Middlebury Planning Commission is preparing to study a key stretch of Route 7 South in an effort to give local officials, residents and property owners a better sense of how that area could be developed in a way that would attract economic development without creating sprawl.
