Ways of Seeing by Joanna Colwell: Open letter to Sen. Bernie Sanders

Posted on December 6, 2018 |

Colwell, Joanna ONLINE.jpg

One of my husband’s favorite t-shirts bears your image, or at least an image of your wild hair, and your glasses. It also bears the number 2016, the year we hoped you would prevail in the Democratic primary, and then continue on to become our 45th president. You don’t need me to tell you that things didn’t quite work out the way we wished.

Jessie Raymond: Christmas cookies or consequences

Posted on December 6, 2018 |
By Jessie Raymond



jessenew ONLINE.jpg

Last year, I started my holiday baking the day after Thanksgiving. By getting an early start and pacing myself, I reasoned, I could build up a varied inventory and be able to hand out plates of goodies to all, right through Christmas.

 I bought butter and sugar by the case, sharpened my cookie cutters, generously floured every flat surface in the house and started cranking out cookies. The Keebler elves could have taken some lessons in mass production.

Greg Dennis: Times a-changing for women in politics, or are they?

Posted on December 6, 2018 |
By Greg Dennis



Dennis, Greg ONLINE.jpg

When Becca Balint was first running for a Windsor County seat in the Vermont State Senate, she got a postcard from an anonymous sender with this message: “I urge you to end your political ambitions and stay home with your children.”

Too often even today, that’s what it’s like for women in politics.

Letter to the editor: Franchises could boost Middlebury

Posted on December 6, 2018 |
By Anders Holm



With two kids in college and two taking college tours I have spent a great deal of time in some of America’s most iconic college towns. Most are very similar to Middlebury, with the quaint downtowns parents expect to see. All the college towns I have visited are dissimilar to Middlebury in one key respect. Every other college downtown I have toured, including others in Vermont and New Hampshire, include judiciously placed and well-appointed franchises. Yes, I said it, franchises.

Letter to the editor: Mandatory measures needed to preserve the planet

Posted on December 6, 2018 |
By Willa Brown



For those of you following international news, you may be aware that the UN has recently released several reports on the climate crisis. The first one shows a consensus that we have much less time — between 10 and 20 years — to avoid a global catastrophe. The second reveals that we have done less in terms of emissions reduction than even our least ambitious targets. In other words, our children are facing a world that will no longer be habitable and yet we are doing nearly nothing to prevent it.

Letter to the editor: Changing times show need for responsible gun laws

Posted on December 3, 2018 |
By Ian Ross



Before my family came to live in Middlebury in 1994, we lived in Pittsburgh for two years. In fact, we lived on a one-way cobble stone road in Squirrel Hill. I have fond memories of living there. The local Elementary and High schools, a sizeable park, and countless businesses were within walking distance of our house. I remember learning to play Street Fighter on an arcade game at one of the local newsstands.
