Clippings: State your identity, state your piece

Posted on November 24, 2010 | Blog Category:
By Andy Kirkaldy



I don’t spend all that much time reading and writing comments on newspaper websites, but make a few exceptions for boston.com baseball coverage, Charlie Pierce blogs and Chad Finn columns; for Burlington Free Press articles on high school field hockey and football; and, only rarely, for an occasional Entertainment Weekly article at ewonline.com. In case anyone else out there reads the same stuff, I don’t mind outing myself as vermontk (boston.com) or Vermont K (BFP).

There are plenty of reasons to see through the glass darkly in late November. You don’t need me to remind you what they are.

But there are also good reasons why it’s become an American tradition to say thanks amid the gathering darkness.

On this holiday, I’m grateful for a few small-time heroes.

I call them “small-time” not because their heroism is petty or unworthy. It’s just that their kind of everyday valor goes largely unnoticed.

I got to thinking about that when I attended a wedding at the Waybury Inn this past summer.

Around the Bend: No lying down on mattress move

Posted on November 18, 2010 | Blog Category:
By Jessie Raymond



Last Saturday night, I decided to move a full-size mattress — and box spring — up a flight of stairs in a narrow hallway. Alone.

Why do I do these things? Where was the voice of reason saying, “Many hands make light work?"

It was being drowned out by the voice of optimism, which kept shouting, “You can do this! Probably!”

My husband and daughter were gone for the evening, and I thought I would surprise her by moving out her no-longer-wanted single bunk beds and moving in the double bed some friends had brought over earlier that day.
