Letters to the Editor: Negotiation, not war, the answer

Posted on May 4, 2017 |
By Patricia Heather-Lea



Over 2,000 years ago, Jesus washed the feet of his disciples. Jesus led by example. For me, there is something caring and tender about that scene. How do we simply love and serve one another? I read that maundy is a shortened form of the Latin word, mandatum, which means commission or commandment. Jesus said, “A new commandment I give unto you, that ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.” (Book of John, Chapter 13, Verse 34)

Ways of Seeing: Johanna Nichols: Words to live by — Keep on flossing

Posted on May 4, 2017 |
By Johanna Nichols



If Bob Nist weren’t a dentist he could be a stand up comic. The best part about my appointment with the dentist was his Midwestern brand of humor. His jokes were like bad puns. It was his timing — the way he drawled them out — that made them funny.

His hygienist was another story. An appointment with Charlotte was torture. She dug into my gums and left me bleeding. Then, the verdict would be a recall in three months. If I got into the habit of flossing, I might make it to six months. It was worth a try.

MIDDLEBURY — The Middlebury Union High School boys’ lacrosse team did not put its best foot forward in Monday’s first half against visiting BFA-St. Albans, and the Bobwhites made them pay for it.

St. Albans took a 7-1 halftime lead as MUHS struggled to get going on offense and get organized in transition and on defense, and the Bobwhites held off a stronger Tiger effort in the second half to prevail, 10-7.
