Jessie Raymond: Front porch arrives 53 weeks late

Posted on September 10, 2015 |
By Jessie Raymond



Lately, people keep coming up to me and saying, “Your front porch looks absolutely beautiful.”

They are correct.

They are also being very polite. Because what they really mean is, “Your front porch appeared to have been under renovation for an inordinately long time. It’s good to see it finished. Finally.”

Opinion: Syrian refugees need our help

Posted on September 10, 2015 |
By Jon Isham Jr.



The world is facing the worst refugee crisis in decades. Over 4 million Syrians have fled war, terror and destruction.

These are families like ours. What can Vermonters do? Is there a means by which we can welcome even a small fraction of these families? Doing so is not only the right thing to do; it’s the Vermont thing to do.

How might we get started?

By Clifford Bell



My name is Clifford Bell. I’m a senior in the Diversified Occupations class, graduating this year and have been in D.O. for 8 years. My guardian works at the D.O. school and without her I would still be living in a very bad place.

Opinion: Middlebury must protect its downtown

Posted on September 10, 2015 |
By Edward Payne



The new Middlebury town office will scale back parking behind the library and Ben Franklin. The proposed covering of the “ugly lower parking lot” by constructing a three-story commercial and residential building would virtually eliminate downtown parking.

Opinion: Comparison of Bernie Sanders to Howard Dean was off the mark

Posted on September 10, 2015 |
By Judy and Michael Olinick



Greg Dennis’ feigned inability to distinguish Bernie Sanders from Howard Dean might be mildly cute if it were original (read the column here).

But cute or not, equating Dean’s 2004 campaign with Bernie’s present one is nonsense.

Editorial: The U.S.-Iran deal, politics, and Bernie's rising stature

Posted on September 10, 2015 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



“It is my firm belief that the test of a great nation is not how many wars it can engage in, but how it can resolve international conflicts in a peaceful manner. I believe we have an obligation to pursue diplomatic solutions before resorting to military engagement – especially after nearly 14 years of ill-conceived and disastrous military engagements in the region.”

Opinion: In our schools, identity matters

Posted on September 10, 2015 |
By Johanna Nichols



As the summer stretches into September, children and teachers are headed back to school. Our daughter is the third generation of teachers in our family. Many conversations are starting about changes in the process of consolidating schools. What that will look like a year from now, we do not know. It will be different. It will be exciting for some and challenging for others. We’ve been moving in this direction for decades — out of the days of the one-room schoolhouse.
