In the process, the Otters made a winner of new head coach Steve Keith in his debut; Keith is also the school’s first-year activities director.

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.”

Clippings: Brubeck's jazzy style was contagious

Posted on December 13, 2012 |
By Trent Campbell



It is usually a good idea to listen to your mom. Back in the ’60s and ’70s my mom was a very active volunteer with the Duluth Symphony. As an accomplished pianist and organist she was eager to keep at least one toe in the world of music while the rest of her was busy raising me and my brother and sister. She served on the symphony board and a few times a year she and my dad would break out their season tickets, get dressed up and head out for an evening of high culture. My brother and I would stay home and wreak havoc.

Politically Thinking by Eric Davis: Same-sex marriage ruling in the works

Posted on December 13, 2012 |
By Eric Davis



The U.S. Supreme Court will hear arguments in the spring in two same-sex marriage cases. The first involves the constitutionality of California’s Proposition 8, the referendum that overturned a California Supreme Court decision making same-sex marriages legal in that state. The second, which could have significant implications for Vermont, involves the constitutionality of the Defense of Marriage Act, or DOMA, the 1996 federal statute that defines marriage in terms of federal law as the legal union of one man and one woman.

Between the Lines: Christmas for Christians - and Jews, too?

Posted on December 13, 2012 |
By Gregory Dennis



Is Christmas a Christian holiday?

Maybe the people who keep urging us to put the Christ back in Christmas have a point. At a time when a growing number of Americans identify with no religious institution, we’ve lost much of the holiday’s religious value.

But many historians believe the historical Jesus was born in the spring. The timing and some of the rituals of modern-day Christmas (e.g., the tree hauled in from the forest) appropriate pagan, solstice celebrations for the purposes of the dominant religious paradigm of our time.

VERGENNES — Vergennes police recently cited two city residents for supplying drugs and alcohol to a juvenile Vergennes resident following an investigation that began on Nov. 29, when the juvenile’s mother complained to police that he had come home under the influence of substances.

Police said their investigation led to a Dec. 3 citation to Carol Englehardt, 46, of Vergennes for allegedly delivering a drug to a minor. Police allege the drug in question was Klonopin, an anti-seizure medication, and that the juvenile had snorted it in powder form.
