Letters to the Editor: Stay involved in the political process

Posted on September 14, 2017 |
By Spencer Putnam



Since the November election there has been a dramatic increase in civic engagement in our state and nation. People have formed discussion groups, attended rallies, written letters, and set their social media networks humming. These are all promising signs of an alert and committed democratic electorate.

To translate all this energy into real change we need to engage in the electoral process. Concerned citizens should consider running for office, recruiting and supporting candidates, or otherwise helping to shape political policies.

Ways of Seeing, Jill Vickers: Reclaiming and reevaluating home

Posted on September 14, 2017 |
By Jill Vickers



It was a long-awaited dream, a home on wheels and nearly a year to spend traveling around the country. My husband and I packed the converted Chevy with cooking tools and supplies, laptops, food, a few books, backpacks and the dog, rented out our house, and hit the road last fall.

As our travels came to an end, in the days waiting to move back into my house, I wondered: Will I be disappointed that the months of traveling cross-country are over? Or will I feel delighted to be back in my home?

It was the first week of August when everyone started talking about the end of summer. As if talking about it, a full month ahead of Labor Day, would somehow prevent the coming of fall.

August brought not the hot weather of most 21st century summers, but more cool and wet. It took a bit of gumption to dive into the lake, or to clamber over the rocks into a mountain stream.

And now autumn is upon us.

Victor Nuovo: Locke, liberalism and America's influence in charting a new course

Posted on September 14, 2017 |
By Victor Nuovo



Editor’s note: This is the 24th in a series of essays by Middlebury College Professor Emeritus Victor Nuovo on the origins of western political thought.

By VICTOR NUOVO

Was John Locke a liberal? There seems to be a consensus among scholars that he was. It all depends on what one means by “liberal,” and because it means many things, one must take each meaning in turn.

Editorial: Should Middlebury’s selectboard defy public’s will to legalize pot?

Posted on September 14, 2017 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



The most interesting question about the overwhelming support for legalizing marijuana among Middlebury residents is what the town’s governing officials will do with that the data. Will they vote against the majority’s wishes and side with their lobbying group’s bias, as some members have indicated, or will they vote the community’s will?
