Ways of Seeing: Internet has changed curating rules

Posted on April 12, 2018 |
By Kate Gridley



Gridley, Kate - Ways of Seeing 2016.jpg

Language evolves. You can find any number of interesting articles on words whose meanings have changed radically over time (“awful,” “clue,” “naughty,” are good examples). With the Internet insinuating itself into most aspects of our lives, slews of words have changed in the brief span of pre-internet time to internet-now: “troll,” “ping,” “handle,” “cloud,” “catfish,” “tablet,” “pad” come to mind.

“Curate” is the word on my mind today.

Victor Nuovo: Condorcet: A Tale of Two Revolutions

Posted on April 12, 2018 |
By Victor Nuovo



Nuovo, Victor ONLINE.jpg

Editor’s note: This is the tenth in a series of essays about political liberalism and conservatism and the two-party system.

Condorcet, a leading philosopher in the French Revolution, believed that he was living in a revolutionary age — the “rights of man,” of life, liberty, equality and property had so caught fire in the minds of people that they could no longer ignore or endure the oppressive wrongs of their governments.

Letter to the editor: Assault weapons aren't 'Vt. way'

Posted on April 12, 2018 |
By Beth Ekroos



I am a teacher in an Addison County school. I come from two very large families that needed hunting and nature to sustain them. I am familiar with guns and know how to shoot them. My founding families did not need assault weapons to put food on their table. If you feel that you need assault weapons to provide for your family maybe you need glasses and shouldn’t be driving, as well.

Assault weapons is not the Vermont way. I did not become a teacher to be able to carry weapon to work.

Letter to the editor: Wedding article unfair to singles

Posted on April 12, 2018 |
By Brenda Ellis



I am so offended by the article “What’s the etiquette when inviting singles to your wedding?” in the most recent “Wedding Planner,” that I feel compelled to write this letter. 

Why the need to treat single people differently than couples? Why would you want to make your single friends/family members feel “othered,” to feel like they are not as valued as married guests?

Letter to the editor: Is it now time for 'fair-trade milk'?

Posted on April 12, 2018 |
By Randy Kritkausky



Thank you for giving James Maroney the space needed to make a very well documented argument for transitioning to organic milk production in Vermont.

It appears that milk pricing at the farm gate is the great unknown and unsolved problem even in the world James imagines. Perhaps we need to recognize that the market economy is simply not able to currently solve this problem, absent a quota system as in Canada.

Letter to the editor: Vermont's gun safety law will not achieve its purpose

Posted on April 12, 2018 |
By Tonya Lawyer



The unfortunate passage of S-55 and soon to be signed by Gov. Scott is nothing more than a feel good law. This will please the liberals who think that this law will change/reduce gun violence in this State and Country. Fortunately for Vermont, although we have some gun violence, we are by far very low on the scale compared to many States. Many of those states, such as Illinois, New York, and Massachusetts have some of the strictest gun laws but have the highest homicide and gun violence rates. So clearly the laws are not working.

NEW HAVEN — One of the most talented athletes in Mount Abraham Union High School history found her calling, she said, because she lacks an athletic skill.

Mount Abe senior Lydia Pitts recalled as a 7th-grader at the Bristol high school she wanted to play a spring sport. Softball, girls’ lacrosse, and track and field were offered.

Pitts, a New Haven resident, chose track and field. Why?

Letter to the editor: Mr. Lynn, Legislature miss the boat on agriculture

Posted on April 12, 2018 |
By James Maroney



In Thomas Jefferson’s day, America’s — and by extension, Vermont’s  — preeminent occupation was agriculture. But in the 1820’s, the opening of the Erie Canal, which would provide a far more efficient link between western farms and eastern markets, adumbrated the future prospects of food production in the relatively inhospitable soil and climate of Vermont.
