World War II veteran took aim at Nazis

Posted on August 13, 2015 |

MIDDLEBURY — We should all have a nickname like Nathan Zuses.

The World War II veteran goes by “Zues,” pronounced the same as “Zeus,” the mythical Greek God of the sky, lightning, thunder, law, order and justice.

Seventy years ago, Zues, as he likes to be known, was toting a 50-caliber machine gun through the Ardennes region in Belgium as part of a U.S. Army anti-aircraft unit fighting in the Battle of the Bulge.

Jessie Raymond: Can't take the heat? Try Vermont

Posted on August 13, 2015 |
By Jessie Raymond



A faraway Facebook acquaintance of mine recently posted that, in an unexpected but delightful gesture, a new neighbor had come to her door with a loaf of banana bread.

It struck me, as it did some of the Facebook commenters, that it would have been more appropriate if she and her family had brought banana bread to the new neighbor, and not the other way around.

She agreed but explained that she wasn’t aware that she even had new neighbors because (a) their car was similar to that of the previous owners and (b) she and her family never go outside.

Opinion: ANwSU tax story error explained

Posted on August 13, 2015 |
By JoAn Canning



I am writing to address and accept responsibility for the discrepancy reported in the July 20, 2015, Addison Independent between estimated tax rates Addison Northwest Supervisory Union reported to the public and the actual tax rates issued by the state.

All the Patricia Hannaford Career Center expenditures were required to be included in the tax rate calculation and were not. This caused the estimated tax rates we provided to the public to be understated. It was an error and I accept full responsibility for it.
