The choices can seem overwhelming. Colors range from nearly white to almost black, or red, yellow, green and even stripes.

Booksmart— Running Time: 1:42 — Rating: R

Have you gone to the movies lately? Looking for a good new one to review is tough. So off I went to “Booksmart” because it had some positive reactions. For me, it was a perfectly awful movie. OK, remind me that it’s for teenagers, but do teenagers really like it?

Posted on June 10, 2019 |
By Walter Frame



Of all the competing funding priorities debated this legislative session in Montpelier, increased investments in child care rose to the top for good reason. The $7.4 million child care package included in the budget is one of the biggest investments the Capitol made this year. It is also one that could yield incredible economic and social returns for Vermont.

Letter to the editor: Let's keep Vermont free of nuclear bombers

Posted on June 10, 2019 |
By Patricia Heather-Lea



On May 16th, I sent this e-mail message to Senators Hardy and Bray.

“I am a Quaker. I live in Bristol, Vermont.

I think it is very important to act on our beliefs of solving problems through negotiations and other peaceful means. I do not think that having jets with the ability to carry nuclear weapons, makes me feel safer. In fact, I think to the contrary. Be positive role models for our children, our state, our country, and our world. There are better ways to solve problems.

Thank you for your work.

Letter to the editor: Local veteran was treated very well at parade

Posted on June 10, 2019 |
By Diana Barnard



For the past several years, I have celebrated Memorial Day by driving veteran Robert “Buster” Weller in the Middlebury parade. This outing is only possible with the assistance of many individuals who volunteer materials, time and effort. The staff of Helen Porter prepare decorations and get Buster up and ready extra early on parade day. Champlain Valley Equipment has very generously loaned us an ATV each year to decorate and drive in the parade. Buster and I are treated mid parade to doughnuts and coffee compliments of Middlebury Eye Associates.
