Angler stumbles upon mythic beaver dam

By MATT DICKERSON
In ancient Greek, the words “muthos” (a forerunner of the modern English word “myth”) and “logos” (related to our word “logic”) were almost interchangeable; both meant something like “an account of the truth.” Over time, “muthos” came to mean an account of truth through story. Then Plato started using the word “muthos” to mean something fictional, or untrue. Oddly enough, however, even Plato used myths to communicate his most important philosophical truths.

Clashes could be resolved with courtesy

By MATT DICKERSON
As an angler, my first conflict with kayakers came a few years ago in North Carolina on the Nantahala River near the Nantahala Outdoor Center, a popular destination offering kayak instruction, excellent water, and a kayak course.

An easy answer for track DQ controversies

By ANDY KIRKALDY Before every varsity girls’ lacrosse game, the athletes line up for a stick check. The referees place a ball in the pocket of each of their sticks to make sure they are legal — not too deep — and thus don’t give the athlete a ball-control advantage.

That official ritual popped into my head when I read about the controversial disqualifications of a Burlington long jumper and a Champlain Valley girls’ relay running team at the May 30 New England qualifying meet in Essex.

Bay-watch: the best show on television

By KARL LINDHOLM

When he hits a home run, he drops the bat, begins running immediately, circles the bases quickly, head bowed, then accepts the congratulations of his teammates with a modest fist bump or two, takes his seat on the bench, and the game goes on.

Jason Bay, the anti-Manny.

The Beauty is in the Particulars

By Matt Dickerson

An ESPN talk show host recently complained about the sport of baseball. He argued that what mattered in sports were memories, particulars, and memories of particulars, and that baseball was all about numbers. Actually, he sounded slightly less articulate than that, and somewhat louder, angrier and whinier. Nonetheless, I agreed with the first half of what he said: Beauty is in the particulars.

The short flight of the Bird

By Karl Lindholm

I saw The Bird before he was The Bird.

Here’s the story:

Many years ago (early 1970s), my good friend Jim was the basketball coach at Auburn High outside Worcester, Mass. Home in New England for a visit, I stopped to visit Jim and Candy on the night of the big hoop tilt between Auburn and Algonquin Regional High.

Odds, ends and an annual May article

By Matt Dickerson

April is over — or it will be by the time most of you read this. May 1 is opening day of spring turkey season in Vermont. Seems like I’ve seen more turkeys this year than usual. Everywhere I drive. Cornfields and hay fields and lawns next to roads all over the county. Plenty of hens and toms both, keeping good company.
