Abby Jenne and the Bessette Quartet will perform at Lincoln Peak Vineyard on Friday from 6 to 8 p.m.
Peter Golenbock’s “Red Sox Nation” (Triumph Books, updated in 2015 to include the 2013 season) probably is not a book for everyone, not even all Sox fans.
Despite the book’s wealth of fascinating details, it might take a touch of masochism for Sox fans to revisit the team’s many decades of failure between 1918 and 1967, mostly due to management decisions based on poor talent evaluation, petty biases, alcoholism and racism.
Moving Vermont’s economy forward requires investments in both innovation and infrastructure.
There’s no shortage of innovation in Vermont — we’re fortunate to have legacy industries and cutting-edge entrepreneurs eager to contribute to our economy and provide good jobs. It’s not easy for them, however. Costs are higher here than in many other places. And too many areas of our state lack critical energy and telecommunications infrastructure necessary to compete in the 21st-century economy.
This week’s writer is U.S. Sen. Patrick Leahy of Vermont, ranking member of the Senate’s Subcommittee on the State Department and Foreign Operations.
Two years of arduous negotiations now have produced an agreement to seal off Iran’s path to producing a nuclear weapon.
I will have questions in the detailed briefings and hearings ahead, as I’m sure others will. But we already know quite a bit.
I am a Middlebury College senior strongly opposed to the college’s position in favor of a proposed 41-mile pipeline siphoning natural gas from Colchester to Middlebury. The full, unflinching support for this proposal among Middlebury faculty, administrators and board members is deplorable and misguided. I commend Bristol lawyer Jim Dumont’s stance that this project, with a price tag surging above $150 million, is a huge mistake for Vermont.
On July 23 my best friend Maria will turn 73. She won’t know it’s her birthday as she suffers from early onset dementia.
In the summer of 2005 as I was preparing to move to Vermont, I was diagnosed for the second time with breast cancer. I had already sold my house and had to be out in six weeks, the surgery was in three weeks and I had barely begun to pack.
STARKSBORO — Starksboro will hold a special town meeting on Tuesday, Aug. 4, to decide whether to change the method by which voters approve the Robinson Elementary School annual budget.
At issue is which method — voting in person at town meeting or voting at the polls by what is called “Australian ballot” — provides the best forum for public discussion and participation while ensuring a budget that matches the community’s financial resources with its desire for excellence in education.
