Editorial: Multi-use path in Midd would be a win-win

Posted on December 3, 2018 |
By Angelo Lynn



Several area organizations lent their support at last Monday’s Middlebury selectboard meeting to a proposal to build a multi-use gravel pathway from the Middlebury Union Middle School to East Middlebury. The pathway would depart the existing Trail Around Middlebury just south of the high school lacrosse field on Creek Road heading south on that existing gravel road, eventually cutting across to the east side of Route 7 and continuing to Route 125 and East Middlebury sidewalks.

World Cup skiing Mikaela Abi and group- 1966.jpg

AMERICAN MIKAELA SHIFFRIN flashes a big smile, center, after winning the World Cup slalom race at Killington this past Sunday. Ripton native Abi Jewett, to Shiffrin’s left, flashes a smile, too, as she competed in her first World Cup event. Left of Jewett is teammate AJ Hurt, who is from California, and Nina O’Brien, a graduate of Burke Academy (as is Shiffrin), is two from the right of Shriffin.

Editorial: Sunday's workshop on white privilege, racism does more than provoke — it transforms

Posted on November 29, 2018 |
By Angelo Lynn



In the whitest state in the union, why attend a talk and workshop this coming Sunday on white privilege and how it perpetuates our nation’s cloaked embrace of racism? Just how important is this discussion, and what on Earth does this have to do with you?

More than you know.

KILLINGTON — This past Sunday, Abi Jewett, an 18-year-old Vermonter from Ripton, stood right next to Mikaela Shiffrin on the winners’ stage at the Killington World Cup. For the third year in a row, Killington Resort hosted the third of 22 international stops in skiing’s most elite competition and put on two races last weekend: a giant slalom on Saturday and a slalom race on Sunday.

Editorial: Still feeling appreciative? Thank a local business, too

Posted on November 26, 2018 |
By Angelo Lynn



This Christmas season make saying hello to your local businesses a personal goal. Not every single business in town, but the ones you most frequent and the ones you occasionally shop in to get that needed item or two.

Think it’s a short list; that there aren’t that many local businesses to visit?

Think again.

Editorial: Finding that perfect gift

Posted on November 26, 2018 |

If you can’t find that perfect gift, think of something that’s not wrapped up in a box. Think of an activity that gets them outside for the next four-to-five months of winter.

The best local gift we know of is skiing at either Rikert Nordic Center or the Middlebury Snow Bowl. Buy them a season pass, or a four-pack of day tickets to get them started, along with a day or two of rentals. If they’re too timid to try skiing, they can rent snowshoes or a fat bike at Rikert Nordic Center.

It’s never a good sign when you realize “the fix is in.” The expression is used widely in gambling, but also about any process where a just outcome won’t be truly reflected.

Editorial: Of elections and 'the Dream'

Posted on November 12, 2018 |
By Angelo Lynn



A generation or so ago, the American Dream was writ large in our cultural DNA. Symbolically, the dream came to mean owning an adequate house, having a family, a car and a job to pay for it all. In the 1950s-60s-70s, that seemed to be possible for a majority of Americans. The mantra was that if you graduated high school, worked hard, and kept your nose clean you’d get to that dream in your thirties, start building equity and have enough to retire on Social Security by 65. That was the life.
