Jessie Raymond: It's best to rely on the yard sale pros

Posted on July 20, 2017 |
By Jessie Raymond



A few weeks ago, I came home to find sitting on my porch a well-seasoned, 14-inch cast iron skillet and lid — just what I had been wanting for the wood cook stove this winter.

My friends Knick and Knack had scored again.

If you’ve ever held, or even been to, a yard sale in Addison County, no doubt you’ve seen them: two determined women with a budget, a list and an uncanny ability to find treasures among the trash, not just for themselves but for all their friends and family.

There’s this scene in “Page One: Inside The New York Times,” a 2011 documentary film about the paper of record, that I can’t stop thinking about.

It features David Carr, The Times’s media columnist who became the paper’s de facto spokesman before his death in 2015. In the scene, Carr debates the future of news with Michael Wolff, the founder of the news aggregation blog Newser.

Letters to the Editor: Scott correct in budget priorities

Posted on July 20, 2017 |
By Bryan Jones



In a recent legislative review, I found some of Representative Conlon’s wording disappointing. He says in the article the he is “not normally one to play politics.” However, his language leaves me questioning that. Using words like “hostage,” accusing Republicans of “putting Vermont’s bond rating in jeopardy” and stating that “The governor vetoed the budget because he did not get his way on public school employee health care negotiations during the session,” are not productive and clearly politically motivated.

What are the problems that the House Education Committee is trying to solve?

First, increasing the amount of money available to support the development and education of children age 3, 4 or 5 who are not enrolled in elementary school.

Gregory Dennis, Between the Lines: When the opioid crisis hits closer to home

Posted on July 20, 2017 |
By Greg Dennis



Dennis, Greg ONLINE.jpg

It’s one thing to hear about the crisis in drug use and the damage it’s doing to individuals and families in Vermont.

It’s quite another thing to realize that the state of Vermont thinks you personally might be a drug addict.

Here’s how that happened to me.

I occasionally take hydrocodone (also known as Vicodin) for back pain. I mean very occasionally. A prescription of 10 pills can last me a year.

Ways of Seeing, Melissa O'Brien: Chapel belongs in Facebook village

Posted on July 20, 2017 |
By Melissa O'Brien



Recently I read an article about Facebook’s plans to build a village. Apparently it will include a hotel, over a thousand apartments, a grocery store, the usual things one might find in a small town. The idea is to solve some of the housing and transportation problems in the Silicon Valley area.

My first thought when I read the piece was “I sure wish they would include a chapel in their design.”
