Posted on October 6, 2016 |

BRANDON — The defending Division II champion Otter Valley Union High School field hockey team snapped a four-game skid on Monday, when the Otters blanked D-I rival Rutland, 2-0.

OV improved to 5-4 heading into a Wednesday game at D-I Mount Anthony (2-3-2), but more importantly, said Coach Stacey Edmunds-Brickell, raised the level of their play on Monday.

Guest editorial: Is that all there is, Mr. Milne?

Posted on October 6, 2016 |
By Emerson Lynn



If we had to come up with the lyrics to summarize Republican Scott Milne’s campaign against incumbent Democratic Senator Patrick Leahy, they would be contained in the late 1960’s song by Peggy Lee, “Is that all there is.”

The song is a soulful lament drawn from a long-ago writer who, staring at the ocean, could see no horizon. The ocean in all its vastness just went on and on, prompting the question, is that all there is?

And so it is with Mr. Milne.

Editorial: Trump is the the 'opioid of the masses'

Posted on October 6, 2016 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



The Washington Post’s Daily 202, an online blog, recently posted a compelling tease: “Want to know why Trump’s winning Ohio,” it asked. “Drink a beer with ‘the deplorables’ in Boehner’s old district.”

It got me, and it was worth the read.

Middletown, Ohio is a depressed industrial town in southwestern Ohio, and reports James Hohmann, Hillary supporters are thinner than hen’s teeth. He has a beer with a couple machinists in their 40s and shares their perspective:

Eric Davis: Bernie Sanders has sway with young voters

Posted on October 6, 2016 |
By Eric Davis



Last week, Bernie Sanders appeared at a rally along with Hillary Clinton on the campus of the University of New Hampshire in Durham. The event drew a large and enthusiastic crowd.

Sanders vigorously endorsed Clinton to the students and other young people present. He supports her both because of specific issues in her platform, such as her plans for lowering college tuition and student loans, and because he firmly believes that a Donald Trump presidency would be dangerous and destabilizing for the nation.

Gregory Dennis: Dems still shortchanging the Progs

Posted on October 6, 2016 |
By Gregory Dennis



Does the Vermont Democratic Party still hate the Vermont Progressive Party?

It appears so, judging by the way it’s holding a stale grudge against candidates who call themselves progressive and run for office as both Democrats and Progressives.

Dave Zuckerman, a Hinesburg organic farmer, ran for lieutenant governor this year as both a D and a P. But the state Democratic apparatus has consistently — even now — withheld its proprietary voter information from his campaign.

Nuovo on Spinoza: Freedom and determination

Posted on October 6, 2016 |
By Victor Nuovo



Editor’s note: This is the eighth in a series of essays on Dutch philosopher Benedict Spinoza.

The last essay left us at the threshold of Spinoza’s morality and politics, but before we cross it, there are other matters to consider, background to be filled in, loose ends to be tidied up, and knots untied one of which demand our urgent attention. His system seems to be founded on an inconsistency. Freedom and determinism, which on the face of it are incompatible, are joined together in it.

Opinion: Bruhl would bring optimism

Posted on October 6, 2016 |
By Erin Ruble



Taborri Bruhl is running for Vermont House for the district of New Haven, Bridport and Weybridge. I’ve had the chance to hear him speak on a couple of occasions now, and I’ve been impressed with his background, his thoughtfulness, and most of all, his optimism that we can actually do something about the problems that surround us.
