ADDISON COUNTY — Local candidates vying in contested elections for Addison County’s seats in the Vermont House and Senate have accumulated some healthy campaign war chests — particularly in the Addison-4 House district, where Progressive/Democrat Mari Cordes of Lincoln has raised a whopping $19,037.
One analogy for the Republican Party’s response to the release of Donald Trump’s taped 2005 remarks detailing his intent to commit adultery via crude sexual assault comes from the world of sports — the NFL, to be exact.
MIDDLEBURY — Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans) officials on Tuesday outlined a new project timetable for replacing the two rail bridges in downtown Middlebury, a schedule that calls for work to span four years, but confine the most disruptive, detour-laden construction to a 10-week period from June to August of 2019.
I learned something about myself last week: Water — or, more specifically, my glass water bottle — means a lot to me. Growing older is just one self-discovery after another, isn’t it?
I wasn’t always a big water drinker. But a decade or two ago, when certain corporations figured out that gullible consumers would pay for free water if it were sold in plastic bottles, I was like, “Hey, I’m a gullible consumer. Here’s my money.” I was hooked.

For Suhr, co-owner with wife, Andrea Scott, of Champlain Orchards, the foundation of that independence rests on sustainable energy.
Sen. Chris Bray, who has served in both the Vermont House and Senate, is one of the best elected officials we have known. He listens to his constituents with a greater depth of concern and really considers what he is being asked to support, then goes to work to find the best solution. We give him an A+ for being responsive to the concerns of the people of Addison County and Vermont.
