Jessie Raymond: 'Nothing' is best Christmas gift ever

Posted on December 30, 2014 |
By Jessie Raymond



Between noon on Thursday, Dec. 25, and 8 a.m. on Monday, Dec. 29, I accomplished nothing.

I therefore count this as the best Christmas ever.

Unlike most families, we don’t do much after Christmas morning, which we spend opening gifts, drinking coffee and devouring a braided cinnamon Christmas bread like zombies eating brains.

Opinion: Officer Mason is an asset to the town

Posted on December 30, 2014 |
By Ross Conrad



Dear Chief Hanley,

I recently read the Community Forum piece by Officer Christopher Mason that appeared in the Christmas edition of the Addison Independent. The piece was absolutely hilarious and heartfelt. The town of Middlebury is fortunate to have the police department that we do, and very fortunate to have Officer Mason on the force.

Opinion: Milne deserves to be elected

Posted on December 30, 2014 |
By Edward Payne



Dear Legislators,

Consider the possibility that Mr. Shumlin should have had some knowledge prior to his announcement that the single-payer program would be too expensive. After all, he was two years in arrears in reporting to you, the Vermont legislator.

Opinion: Cornwall wise to halt Vt. Gas talks

Posted on December 30, 2014 |
By Jane Palmer



Boy am I glad I am not a selectboard member in Cornwall right now.

Talk about being caught between a rock and a hard place. To recap the situation, in a nutshell, Vermont Gas/Gaz Métro proposed a high-pressure fracked gas pipeline through Cornwall and Shoreham and under the lake to reach its potentially most lucrative customer ever, and the majority of voters in Cornwall and Shoreham (at their respective town meetings last year), told VGS to go pound salt.

Opinion: Speed trap gives state bad name

Posted on December 30, 2014 |
By Margaret Gibbs



It might be a good idea to reconsider the speed trap at the Lake Champlain bridge. Not only is it a poor welcome to Vermont, but it does not reflect the warmth or spirit of its residents and businesses.

Although the sheriff may be pleased with stopping dozens of people in one day the week before Christmas, revenue collected through fines means less money is spent at local businesses. Any plans for Christmas shopping in Vergennes or for stopping at The Bridge Restaurant change immediately once a ticket with a hefty fine has been issued.

Tiger girls hockey outshoots, but don't stem, the Tide

Posted on December 30, 2014 |
By Andy Kirkaldy

MIDDLEBURY — The young Middlebury Union High School girls’ hockey team showed on Monday both why the Tigers can be a force to be reckoned with after moving up to Division I, and that they are still learning on the job.

In the first round of the Tigers’ Buster Brush Holiday Classic, they dominated the flow of the game vs. visiting Spaulding (3-2) and outshot the Tide, 35-19.

Community Forum: Schools also dispensing human services

Posted on December 30, 2014 |
By Jack Hoffman



This week’s writer is Jack Hoffman, a policy analyst for Public Assets Institute (www.publicassets.org), a non-partisan, nonprofit organization based in Montpelier.

Exhibit A among current critics of Vermont’s education funding system is some version of a chart showing annual education expenditures going up over time and school enrollment going down. Why are we spending more and more money to educate fewer and fewer kids?

Opinion: Using natural gas as a bridge fuel makes no sense

Posted on December 30, 2014 |
By Sally Burrell



It’s wise to carefully consider how energy projects impact the land, air and water. Our lives and economy depend on a clean environment. Likewise, the health of our society depends on living cooperatively, respecting each other and creating local solutions to local challenges. Surrendering to corporate pressure and outsourcing our energy needs is detrimental to our democratic process and to the expansion of our local energy economy.
