Livestock and politicians are big part of the scene

Editor’s note: Addison County Fair and Field Days provides a calliope of sights and sounds that tantalize the senses and tickle the imagination, and the 62nd annual edition last week was no exception. As always, the five-day event proved too much to capture in one place, but we’re presenting a few verbal snapshots from the fairgrounds along with some of Trent Campbell’s fantastic photographs so you can relive the experiences and hopefully make plans to attend next year.

NEW HAVEN — The five Democratic candidates for governor squared off at Addison County Fair and Field Days last Thursday evening, in what will be one of their last meetings before the primary elections on Aug. 24.

ADDISON COUNTY — The 40-some members of the Maiden Vermont women’s chorus have an important performance coming up this Saturday, and the choice of attire is an important consideration.

“It could take us a year to decide what color hat to wear,” chorus director Lindi Bortney said late last week. “Someone said we should wear the red hats, and then someone else said half of us should wear red and half should wear blue.”

Guest Editorial: What it will take to win the war in Afghanistan

Posted on August 16, 2010 |
By Haviland Smith



David Kilcullen, one of the world’s leading counterinsurgency experts and preeminent advisor to the US government, says that we must meet certain markers if we are to “succeed” in Afghanistan: We must face the realities of historical and contemporary Afghanistan. There must be agreement between Afghans and Americans on our goals. We must eliminate the Taliban sanctuary in Pakistan. There must be a solid, long-term US commitment including a flexible timeline.

A smashing success: Derby draws crowds

NEW HAVEN — Huge crowds packed into the grandstand near the tractor pad at the Addison County Fair and Field Days Wednesday and Thursday evenings to watch the most chaotic part of the week’s festivities: the No. 1 Auto Parts Demolition Derby.

FERRISBURGH — At Button Bay State Park on Monday evening, a dozen small children ran around in swimsuits and bare feet, unfazed by the steady rain.

Andrea Viera of Lincoln smiled and looked across the crowd to Elias Stedman, a seven-year-old from Brooklyn, N.Y., who is finishing up a two-week stay in Vermont sponsored by the Fresh Air Fund. For two days after he arrived, she said, Elias kept his shoes on, but after watching Viera’s three children, Kayla, Jake and Nate, walk around shoeless, he decided to try it as well.
