Opinion: ANeSU leader's absence is noted

Posted on September 17, 2015 |
By Eric Hanson



Regarding the recent article on the proposed mediation for the Addison Northeast Supervisory Union (ANeSU), I feel that I need some clarification.

In the article it was stated that Superintendent David Adams could not be reached for comment because he was on vacation. This during what is arguably the most important time during the school year, when teachers, staff, students and parents are all getting their feet on the ground for the new school year. Seriously?

Opinion: D.O. program is a proven 'gem'

Posted on September 17, 2015 |
By Jean Fifield



I am writing in support of definitely continuing the Diversified Occupations program at Hannaford Career Center.

I am in total agreement with Peter Ryersbach and Clifford Bell that the D.O. program has been very successful in educating students, involving the community and using appropriate tools to further student success. This program is a “gem.” It has produced many successful, happy, motivated students who are now working and living in our community and are considered a valuable part of it.

Opinion: County in critical need of more guardians

Posted on September 14, 2015 |
By Tony Krulikowski



Addison County is a wonderful place to live and raise children. However, some families do not always have the resources and support they need, and children end up in the state’s custody for a variety of reasons.

Opinion: Act of kindness was very inspiring

Posted on September 14, 2015 |
By Steve Koch



Last Sunday afternoon we were out sailing on Lake Champlain. We got a little too close to a shallow area south of Fields Bay and before completing a tack (away from shore), we slowly hit the muddy bottom. We were in no danger but were stuck.

My crew and I set out to extract ourselves by using our dinghy and an anchor to “kedge” off, but before long a powerboat with two persons aboard offered their assistance. In no time they pulled us off into deeper water.

Opinion: Store plans 'sunflower trade' day

Posted on September 14, 2015 |
By Teresa Glidden



The Addison Four Corners store is offering a “ sunflower trade” day on Saturday, Sept. 19. Bring in four sunflowers in trade for a breakfast sandwich.

For each sunflower we receive we will donate $2 to the Knights of Columbus Christian Refugee Relief Fund. Please help us to help others that are being persecuted for their choice of faith. Christianity is being forced to retreat and give ground to terrorists, while our government doesn’t make a peep about it. Is that because of the election campaigns?

Opinion: Organic farms are part of solution

Posted on September 14, 2015 |
By Emily Millard



I have been following with great interest the recent series of articles covering the new Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) as it relates to the Lake Champlain cleanup effort. I am disappointed that none of the articles thus far have made any mention of the important role that organic agriculture has to play in this critical situation.

Clippings by Trent Campbell: Learning the ropes in kindergarten

Posted on September 10, 2015 |
By Trent Campbell



Area schools opened up recently and, as in years past, I visited a kindergarten class to photograph some of the newest students in the county. Most of my time was spent with kids before the first bell of the day rang. Some of the kids were eating breakfast, two were quietly playing house, one boy was coloring and others played in small groups or by themselves. As I worked I was reminded how precious and how complicated life can be for a kindergartner.

Jessie Raymond: Front porch arrives 53 weeks late

Posted on September 10, 2015 |
By Jessie Raymond



Lately, people keep coming up to me and saying, “Your front porch looks absolutely beautiful.”

They are correct.

They are also being very polite. Because what they really mean is, “Your front porch appeared to have been under renovation for an inordinately long time. It’s good to see it finished. Finally.”

And how.

Opinion: Syrian refugees need our help

Posted on September 10, 2015 |
By Jon Isham Jr.



The world is facing the worst refugee crisis in decades. Over 4 million Syrians have fled war, terror and destruction.

These are families like ours. What can Vermonters do? Is there a means by which we can welcome even a small fraction of these families? Doing so is not only the right thing to do; it’s the Vermont thing to do.

How might we get started?

Opinion: Student lobbies for D.O. program

Posted on September 10, 2015 |
By Clifford Bell



My name is Clifford Bell. I’m a senior in the Diversified Occupations class, graduating this year and have been in D.O. for 8 years. My guardian works at the D.O. school and without her I would still be living in a very bad place.
