Editor’s note: Like so many people in Addison County, columnist Karl Lindholm was so very saddened to hear of the death this past weekend of Peter Quinn, a longtime school clinician at Vergennes Union High School, high school coach and talented basketball player. We choose to honor Peter by rerunning this column that Karl wrote in 2013.

Matt Dickerson: Eulogy to a nature lover

Posted on November 29, 2018 |
By Matt Dickerson



Dickerson, Matt ONLINE.jpg

I don’t write many words about the outdoors or nature that do not, at some point, reflect the life, love and influence of my mother, Clara May Riddle Dickerson.

Karl Lindholm: John Morton: A lifetime in sports

Posted on November 21, 2018 |
By Karl Lindholm



Karl Lindholm col mortonkids.jpg

“I was training for the Winter Olympics in Alaska when I got my orders for Vietnam.” 

That’s how John Morton began his presentation to my class on the Vietnam War. 

“Even when the plane landed at Tan Son Nhut Air Base, I was sure the Army had made a mistake and I would be getting right back on the plane.” 

In general, college boys found ways to avoid serving in Vietnam. That’s not so true of Middlebury College boys.

Matt Dickerson: Chasing game in mountains

Posted on November 15, 2018 |
By Matt Dickerson



Dickerson, Matt ONLINE.jpg

With the quickly waning daylight, my chances of bagging any wild quarry that day were rapidly declining. Creeping along the dirt road, I glanced at the pale November sun kissing the top of the snow-dusted ridgeline to my left. I turned and looked to my right, where my shadow stretched across the dry brown grass toward the opposite ridgeline, still bathed in gold.

Andy Kirkaldy: High school, college and pro championship teams share traits

Posted on November 8, 2018 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



Kirkaldy, Andy ONLINE.jpg

The past few weeks have brought rain, cold and a flurry of championships for teams I care about: Mount Abraham Union High School in Division II field hockey, Middlebury College field hockey and women’s soccer in the NESCAC postseason, and — as some might have heard about —  the Boston Red Sox in the World Series.

Another team gave a valiant effort, but lost its D-III final, Vergennes girls’ soccer.

Matt Dickerson: Late fall fishing for steelhead and salmon

Posted on November 1, 2018 |
By Matt Dickerson



Dickerson, Matt ONLINE.jpg

Every fall in Vermont, about the time that the open trout season sputters to its conclusion on Halloween, and area streams and rivers really start running cold, another fishing season is just beginning.

Karl Lindholm: Uncle Robbie, Rough, and the Sox-Dodgers

Posted on October 25, 2018 |

How about this! The Red Sox and the Dodgers in the World Series.

Pretty cool.

Two of the game’s oldest and most storied clubs squaring off: Brooklyn joined the National League in 1890 and Boston played in the inaugural American League season of 1901.

They weren’t known as the “Dodgers” and “Red Sox” in their early days, but simply the “Brooklyn Nationals” and the “Boston Americans.” The Red Sox became the Red Sox in 1907, and the Dodgers not officially until after the 1918 season.

Matt Dickerson: Yes, jellyfish can be found in area waters

Posted on October 18, 2018 |
By Matt Dickerson



Dickerson, Matt ONLINE.jpg

For over two decades I’ve been writing an outdoor column with a special emphasis on fishing. I never thought I’d be writing about jellyfish, though. One reason is that they aren’t even fish; they are more accurately referred to as “jellies.” Another reason is that Vermont, by virtue of not having any ocean coastline, doesn’t have any jellies. Or so I thought.

Matt Dickerson: One-fish afternoon

Posted on October 4, 2018 |
By Matt Dickerson



Dickerson, Matt ONLINE.jpg

Alex and I had spent a couple hours fishing our way slowly up the Middlebury River. Though Alex had seen several small fish nipping at his flies, neither of us had yet slipped anything into the net.

Karl Lindholm: What's in a name — a championship?

Posted on September 27, 2018 |
By Karl Lindholm



lindholm.jpg

Mookie Betts.

What kind of name is that, for a grown-up? Or a big league ball player?

Sounds like a character in a kids’ book, or a cartoon figure. Who’s next — Pippi Longstocking, Wile E. Coyote?

“Mookie Betts” indeed. Best Red Sox name since Coco Crisp.

When he comes up to the plate as the lead-off hitter for the Red Sox, you’re justified in asking, “Who’s that high school kid?”
