Andy Kirkaldy: A selective and subjective sample of Rio memories

Posted on August 25, 2016 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



First, let me say the persistent corruption and hypocrisy of International Olympic Committee members increasingly has dampened my enthusiasm for the Olympics.

It’s time to throw out the IOC bums, establish one or two sites each for the summer and winter games, and call it a day.

But the athletes themselves range from great to transcendent. Once they start competing — as long as it isn’t in synchronized swimming, rhythmic gymnastics or modern pentathlon — the Olympics remain compelling.

Karl Lindholm: A passion for golf, friends and travel

Posted on July 7, 2016 |
By Karl Lindholm



I never played golf in St. Andrews in Scotland, but I was able go there a number of times as a part of my job at Middlebury College.

On my first visit, I took a taxi from the train station to the university right in the middle of town with other study abroad advisers from Williams and Mt. Holyoke. I sat in the passenger seat and chatted with the driver. “The birthplace of golf . . . I can’t wait to see the Old Course,” I said to the cabbie. “Where is it? Nearby?”

Matt Dickerson: The balm of brook trout

Posted on June 30, 2016 |
By Matt Dickerson



Dickerson fishing9826.jpg

It began with a trip to a river I have been fishing since I was 13 years old: the Little Androscoggin.

My school career began with kindergarten in the little Maine village of Bryant Pond, whose two thriving lumber mills helped support a population of 1,000, spread out over three villages in the town of Woodstock. Our house was just over the tracks and a good outfielder’s throw from the Little League field with the classic wooden grandstand that my fellow Independent sports columnist Karl Lindholm, who grew up less than an hour away, still remembers.

Andy Kirkaldy: Just a couple things that make you go hmmm...

Posted on June 23, 2016 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



Time for just a couple thoughts for the summer solstice.

I do believe the Cleveland Cavaliers deserved their victory over the Golden State Warriors on Sunday, and congratulations to the long-suffering fans of Northeast Ohio.

It’s been well-documented Cleveland’s last major championship came in 1964. There’s been plenty of heartbreak since then.

Matt Dickerson: A first run-in with a Vermont bowfin

Posted on June 16, 2016 |
By Matt Dickerson



Recently, I was reminded (yet again) of what amazing, abundant, and diverse fishing opportunities are available to anglers in Vermont. Within a short drive of Addison County one can find brook, brown, and rainbow trout in dozens of rivers and streams, and several mountain ponds. There are salmon and lake trout in Champlain and some inland lakes. Pike and smallmouth thrive in the bigger rivers and many ponds. You can also find muskies, walleye, perch, largemouth bass, fallfish and bullhead.

Karl Lindholm: Noon hoops and howling at the moon

Posted on June 9, 2016 |
By Karl Lindholm



I begged my kids to come to Middlebury sporting events with me.

When a dad takes his kids to a game, he’s a good dad. If he goes by himself and leaves the kids at home, he’s borderline selfish.

Matthew Dickerson: Desert trout and other wild things

Coytoe and cactus5439.JPG

My wife and I went to a museum last week. It was called a museum, anyway. But was more of a zoo, botanical garden, aviary and aquarium of native local plants and animals all rolled into one. And it was mostly outdoors.

Andy Kirkaldy: More questions than answers for AL East teams

Posted on March 31, 2016 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



Corey Buxton asked me last week what I thought about the Red Sox’s chances this year. To be honest, I said, I hadn’t really sized it up.

But then I rattled off, well, is pitcher Clay Buchholz going to make it through the year healthy? Were the end-of-the-season surges by fellow hurlers Joe Kelly and Rick Porcello last year for real, or are they going to be mediocre again (or worse)? How healthy is Eduardo Rodriguez, and can he build on his strong rookie season as a starting pitcher?

Matt Dickerson: Coming home

Posted on March 24, 2016 |
By Matt Dickerson



My older brother Ted just visited me from Alaska.

All three of my brothers enjoy outdoor activities. They have all done some camping, hiking and fishing. But Ted is my brother who enjoys outdoor recreation the most. Perhaps even more than I do. Like me he grew up in small town New England and was raised on fishing and camping trips with our father in northern Maine.

Karl Lindholm: Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee

Posted on March 16, 2016 |
By Karl Lindholm



Muhammad Ali was a dancer.

He danced in the ring, light as a feather, sticking and moving, bobbing and weaving, avoiding blows, floating as if on air, stinging his earth-bound plodding adversaries, mere mortals, beating them up, knocking them down and out, in a world of hurt.

Ironic, isn’t it. Such grace of movement, such beauty of physical expression really, in service to violence and pain. Ali wanted to knock you out: his end, his purpose, was your end.
