Gregory Dennis: Echoes of the ski winter that wasn't

Posted on April 21, 2016 |
By Gregory Dennis



Most of us have moved on from winter. But for skiers, the memories of the past season echo like one long car crash.

Most Vermonters have enjoyed a winter of lower heating bills and the occasional day without wool hat and gloves. Skiers and boarders, though, have suffered through the worst winter in living memory.

Someone reported that this was the mildest winter since 1955-56. I can’t really confirm that, having been three years old at the time.

Posted on April 21, 2016 |
By Laura Asermily



April’s school vacation week is a perfect time to take a “Hibernation Vacation” by turning off or unplugging all unneeded appliances before everyone heads out.

Opinion: Flag vandalism is unacceptable

Vandalism in Middlebury Cemetery. Along the road from the tennis courts at Middlebury College to Route 30, someone has been destroying flags.

Not only is this disrespectful of the American flag, it is trespassing on private property (family gravesites), but also disrespectful of the veterans that fought for our country.

As you walk or drive down the row, you can see the flags have been ripped off and only the wooden dowels are left. Local police and college security have been alerted.

Opinion: Next president will inherit a foreign policy challenge

Posted on April 21, 2016 |
By George Jaeger



Among the most disturbing aspects of this bizarre election season is the absence of any serious discussion of America’s foreign affairs.

Endless debates have produced simplistic themes that play to the gut feelings of parts of the electorate. But relatively little attention has been paid to the most critical world issues America will have to face in the years ahead.

Posted on April 21, 2016 |
By Dr. Fred Kniffen



This week’s writer is Dr. Fred Kniffin, interim CEO of Porter Medical Center

In my first “Community Commentary” as the interim CEO of Porter Medical Center, I focused my message on the status of adult primary care here in Addison County and the recent loss of a number of valued physician colleagues. Clearly, this is among the most immediate and important issues we need to address as an organization and community.
