In the Monday, Aug. 10, issue of your paper, there were letters to the editor that gave me great hope for the future.
One was a serious analysis of the pros and cons of local police acquiring and using Tasers. Another was about a seemingly responsible young woman who accidentally caused the death of a local cyclist, possibly due largely to driving under the influence of alcohol as well as several medications prescribed by a physician (that affect neurological functioning) and the likely relative meager legal consequence for such an offense.
Deceit should not be rewarded with a slap on the hand and a $100,000 fine that will be passed on to rate-paying customers.
Passing escalating costs onto customers should not be an option as ratepayers don’t have endless deep pockets. The ice caps are melting. The world as we know it is rapidly changing. The release of methane gas in the atmosphere through fracking cannot be accepted. This is a sure death wish for the planet.
MIDDLEBURY — In recent golf action, Ralph Myhre Golf Course members on Aug. 29 defeated their counterparts from the Basin Harbor Club, thus keeping the Addison Cup in Middlebury for another year.
Then on Aug. 30 Chuck and Hogan Beazley and Vicki and Elena Bronson were the winners in Ralph Myhre’s Parent-Child Tournament.
On Aug. 31, the Ralph Myhre foursome of Jim Dayton, Don Dayton, Matt Brush and Seth Dayton tied for second place at a Pro-Am tournament at Dorset Country Club.
BRANDON — Visiting Woodstock dealt the Otter Valley Union High School boys’ soccer team a 4-0 setback on Tuesday in the Otters’ season debut.
Coach Dick Williams said OV goalie Colin Nicklaw (14 saves) and central defender Collin Eugair both played well for his team against the 2-0 Wasps, who were coming off a 6-0 opening win over Springfield.
I posted this on various pages on Facebook. I then realized, the people whoshould see it, would likely read it in the newspaper.I grew up in Bristol. Wonderful town that supports its own.Sometimes. But, there are people who need help and just do not get theattention necessary.How does one go about get some fundraising done for a member of the communitywho has lived there their whole life? I know the town/county does major fundraising for causes. How are theychosen?
