Outdoors column by Matt Dickerson: On delight and being outdoors

Posted on January 17, 2013 |
By Matt Dickerson



My wife and I love the way that certain animals play. She is especially fond of ravens, and delights to read accounts or watch videos of their frolicking. They have been known to sled on their bellies and wings down snowy hills, or repeatedly fly over big chimneys in the winter and tumble head-over-wing in the updraft. They seem also to like playing tricks on people, even when the trick has no practical advantage to them.

Sports Column by Andy Kirkaldy: Authority figures show bad side of pro sports

Posted on January 10, 2013 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



Every now and then the stupid side of sports is fully displayed.

This past weekend was such a time, and in more ways than one.

Let’s start with first things first. Word broke late on Friday that the National Hockey League owners and players had resolved their labor dispute after 113 days, and by Sunday it was confirmed.

It’s not that the resolution was unwelcome news, it’s that the words “labor dispute” are used kindly. It was all the owners and commissioner Gary Bettman’s fault.

Sports Column: Wishing coaches the best of three out of four greats

Posted on December 27, 2012 |
By Karl Lindolm



Before every season, Middlebury Union High School Activities Director Sean Farrell asks all boys and girls aspiring to be on teams that season and their parents and coaches to attend an organizational meeting at the high school.

We meet first as a group in the gym and then in individual team meetings. Coaches introduce themselves and their athletic philosophy and address relevant practical concerns.

I have two children at MUHS who enjoy sports so I have attended 11 of these meetings so far, and likely have five more coming up.

Dickerson outdoor column: Of hobbits, the outdoors and love of Christmas

Posted on December 20, 2012 |
By Matt Dickerson



This past weekend I watched Peter Jackson’s latest spectacle, “The Hobbit.” Though the film revels in violent action, and in that way is very different from Tolkien’s classic book of the same name, the book and film do have a few things in common.

Kirkaldy Sports Column: A few requests for Santa from the sports world

Posted on December 13, 2012 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



If anyone out there doesn’t believe in Santa Claus, please check out the kid’s picture on our Dec. 6 front page smiling at St. Nick in wide-eyed wonder. Case closed.

Now that it has been once again re-established that Santa is real, I have a few sports-world requests for the Sage of the North Pole.

Many people deserve the gift of their dreams: Santa should give them what they want, which herein will be defined as “Visions of Sugar Plums.”

Matt Dickerson: Second-guessing after the deer season

Posted on December 6, 2012 |
By Matt Dickerson



Second-guessing: evaluating a decision after the outcome of that decision is known; being critical of an action with the added advantage of hindsight. “Monday morning quarterbacking” we call it. But this column is not about football.

I am a storyteller. This week I had planned for my column a story about my harvesting of a deer during the 2012 season. Maybe two stories: one about rifle season and one about muzzleloading.

Sports column: The pain and the joy of going the distance

Posted on November 29, 2012 |
By Karl Lindholm



 

Walking around the track at Middlebury College one day last summer, I ran into my friend Jon Cormier of Bristol, or more accurately, he ran by me. He was kind enough to stop and chat with me for a while, at my pace.

Turns out he was training for a race, and not a local fun run, but the “Vermont 50” at Mt. Ascutney in September. That’s a 50-mile race, up and down and around the mountain, with 9,000 feet of climbing over its route.

Sports Column: Why one youth hunts (and more really ought to)

Posted on November 8, 2012 |
By Matt Dickerson



Dickerson column Richards youth weekend.jpg

“Squirrels are way too loud!” That’s was the comment from 13-yearold Jake Pyne. It wasn’t really a complaint. Merely one of many observations he made while hunting with his father.

“When I’m in the woods hunting deer it’s hard not to notice other things. Just sitting quietly you get to see how the wildlife acts when they think no one is around,” was another.
