Letter to the Editor: Students acted shamefully

Posted on March 9, 2017 |
By Ralph Shepard



Perhaps the pampered and privileged Middlebury College students who recently protested against an invited campus speaker need a lesson in Civics with particular emphasis on the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution!

I served in the military for 22 years to defend the rights of both the speaker and those who disagree with his message. While I don’t agree with the speaker’s world view, I am very troubled by the lack of civility displayed by the students opposing it.

Posted on March 9, 2017 |
By Tom Anderson



I was saddened to read about the abuse Allison Stanger endured at Middlebury College. I am the former Director of Parks and Recreation for the Town of Middlebury. Allison volunteered her time for several years as a recreation department youth basketball coach. She was a kind, sensible woman who was an excellent role model for the children she instructed.

Legislative Review: Session about to hit its stride

Posted on March 9, 2017 |
By Fred Baser



The current legislative session has gotten off to a sluggish start. We have a new governor, a new lieutenant governor and a new speaker of the House of Representatives. Each of these positions has a great amount of control over what happens in the Statehouse. We are all getting used to the new dynamic.

Early in the session, Gov. Scott delivered his budget address. In that address the governor challenged legislators to control spending without imposing new taxes. He also proposed new education funding measures:

•  level fund education spending,
