Jessie Raymond: One weird fact: Online info false!

Posted on December 30, 2015 |
By Jessie Raymond



Recently a Facebook friend of mine shared a terrifying post, ostensibly written by her cousin’s co-worker, about a dangerous new car-jacking trend. The incident in question happened to the friend’s cousin’s co-worker’s daughter in a Walmart parking lot and, the post warned, it could happen to you.

The poor young woman came out of the store and got in her car. When she checked her mirror to back up, she noticed a sale flier tucked under the rear wiper. So, with the car running, she got out to remove the flier.

Matt Dickerson: My biggest wish for the new year

Posted on December 30, 2015 |
By Matt Dickerson



It seems that we live in a time of extremes.

Looking out our window this morning at several inches of fresh snow, I had my first hope of some cross-country skiing. Then I got to the breakfast table and looked out the big window. The precipitation had changed to an ugly mix of sleet and rain.

Opinion: Corporations making the rules

Posted on December 30, 2015 |
By Fred Person



“We owe no allegiance; we bow to no throne, our ruler is law, and the law is our own.”

— From the “Song of Vermonters,” 1779.

Today this is not true. Through the mask of renewable energies out of country, corporations have created law and made this their own, through profits, which creates the plundering of Vermont’s wildlife habitat and Vermont’s rural communities.

Opinion: Middlebury police helped out Santa

Posted on December 30, 2015 |
By Tammy Fisher



We wanted to take a moment to let the Middlebury Police Department know how much several children appreciated them delivering Santa to us on Dec. 13.

The Middlebury Police Department made sure Santa was able to arrive at the American Legion, due to the lack of snow and no place to land his sleigh! Thank you Officer Bill Austin for getting Santa to all the children safely. They were so grateful.

Tammy Fisher

Secretary American Legion Auxiliary Unit 27

By Louis duPont



Editor’s note: This letter was sent to the leaders of the Vermont Senate and Vermont House of Representatives.

I am writing to you today on behalf of the Starksboro Elementary School Board. At our monthly meeting last night our board voted unanimously in favor of a motion to request that you rescind the per-pupil threshold amounts that the Legislature passed in conjunction with Act 46 last June.

Opinion: Open mic at local tavern is an important venue

Posted on December 30, 2015 |
By Barry Churchill



I came to Middlebury in January 2014 for my mom’s 75th birthday from Maryland and ended up transferring my Section 8 voucher up here, a big decision of change. It was culture shock coming from a city of 80,000, and my first impression was that Middlebury was a dead town of black cloaks and blue collars. I found two places to primarily network and build contacts: Dunkin Donuts and Mickey D’s.
