Opinion: State tax structure amounts to farm welfare

Posted on February 5, 2015 |
By Craig Scribner Sr.



Reading the Jan. 15 issue of the Addy Indy inspired me to pen this missive. Bob Foster, the Middlebury Moo Doo Guru, and Bill Moore, Vermont Farm Bureau lobbyist, painted farmers as the epitome of philanthropy.

Untrue as proven by the following scenario. A business in Bristol assessed at $2.5 million, the property tax, (calculated at the non-residential rate) would be $56,877.50. Farm buildings in Bristol assessed at $2.5 million, the property tax is $0.

Tigers sink Commodores for the Lake Division lead

Posted on February 4, 2015 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



BB7.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — Entering Tuesday’s home game with first place in the Lake Division on the line, Middlebury Union High School boys’ basketball coach Chris Altemose had points of emphasis for his Tigers.

To defeat a Commodore team that came to MUHS at 12-1, Altemose told the Tigers they would have to be solid defensively, particularly in keeping the VUHS ballhandlers in front of them; play at their preferred fast pace, but still make sure to get back and deny the Commodores in transition; and focus on rebounding.

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Wrestlers from Vergennes and Middlebury union high schools fared well on Saturday at tournaments in Massachusetts and New York.

Faring best was Commodore 170-pounder Brandon Cousino, who won his weight class at the Mountie Invitational at Mount Greylock Union High School in Williamstown, Mass. Cousino won all four of his matches by pin and earned an extra trophy for the fastest pin recorded at the event, an 11-second victory.

Karl Lindholm: Vermont's Schoolmaster is in the Hall of Fame

Posted on February 4, 2015 |
By Karl Lindholm



I was skeptical.

When I first heard that Middlebury College was considering an Athletic Hall of Fame, I had reservations.

A hall of fame can be a can of worms, producing as much discord as concord, as much dismay at who’s not included as celebration of who gets in.

Halls of fame are by their very nature exclusive. We preach in schools the joy of competition and the benefits of participation, but we know the most highly accomplished are not always the most highly dedicated.
