Opinion: Former teacher taught student an enduring lesson

Posted on March 3, 2016 |
By Mike Sommers



George Motolanez was my ninth-grade world history teacher. I remember sitting next to Dave Rochon and Lauren Leroux in 1979 when Mr. Motolanez taught us something that still has a strong and helpful influence upon my view of how the world works.

Up until that time I thought that the function of government was to represent people — all people. So even if my viewpoints were anti-commercial, for example, government’s job was to represent my views (in balance with all the other views of people out there).

Andy Kirkaldy: Of NFL quarterbacks, FIFA, and the best gym in Vermont

Posted on March 3, 2016 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



A few items, from local to international, have recently caught my attention.

Nationally, NFL quarterbacks have been in the news.

Peyton Manning got a pass from the media after walking off the field following a Super Bowl loss to the Saints and not shaking any hands, including that of winning QB Drew Brees.

He’s a competitor, said the talking heads.

Opinion: Fans should let coaches coach, and focus on cheering

Posted on March 3, 2016 |
By Ron LaRose



The 2015-2016 basketball season has come to a close with all three county high school boys’ and girls’ teams being eliminated from the playoffs. Even though this winter’s basketball season was not measured in a lot of ‘Ws’ for any of these six teams, one can reflect back over the season, regardless of records, Mount Abe versus Vergennes or Middlebury or Vergennes versus Middlebury, boys’ or girls’ games, there were a lot of competitive games between the three schools.

Opinion: Monkton voters made big splash

Posted on March 3, 2016 |
By Stephen Pilcher



Judging by the increased attendance and the number of new faces at Monkton’s first-ever Saturday town meeting, the decision, made at last year’s town meeting, to move our town meeting to a day when citizens do not have to take time off from work appears to have been a good idea.

Opinion: Law must encourage education savings

Posted on March 3, 2016 |
By Rep. Scott Beck



Four shoppers needing a new sedan walk onto a car lot and are greeted by a salesperson who quickly sizes up their wallets — one is poor, one has limited means, one has modest means, and one has means.

The salesperson takes the four on a lot tour, first showing them an economy car — small, efficient to operate, few options and a sticker price of $10,000. An additional premium of $2,500 is required when purchasing the economy car for a total price of $12,500.

Opinion: Shoreham hunters broke no laws

Posted on March 3, 2016 |
By Linda Torrey Laberge



It blows my mind that an incident on Sunday, where a horse got worked up and sweaty with coydog hunters in the area, turns into Thursday’s “word on the street” that the hunters had shot through two houses and killed a heifer.
