Clippings by John Flowers: Giving thanks for the little things

Posted on November 21, 2013 |
By John Flowers



Thanksgiving is upon us, so it only seems appropriate to give a hearty “thanks” for the things that keep my professional and personal life interesting. Having a happy, healthy and loving family of course tops the list. But as I jam turkey, stuffing, yams, Watergate salad and pumpkin pie in my face next Thursday, I will also remember some of the more routine things to be grateful for:

Despite the noise, government has a role

Posted on October 23, 2013 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



It was back in 1981 when the modern right-wing assault on the role of government in our society began. Then, newly elected President Ronald Reagan said this during his inaugural speech:

“In this present crisis, government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem.”

The attack continued through the Clinton years with a congressionally inspired government shutdown.

Clippings by John McCright: Daddy looks back to see the future

By John S. McCright



When I saw my older daughter walking away from the car after I dropped her off for her first middle school dance recently I felt a little tug of the heartstrings and knew that with every step she took she was going one step farther away from her daddy, one step closer to life on her own as an independent individual.

Jessie Raymond: Cider setback sparks second round

Posted on September 26, 2013 |
By Jessie Raymond



Heading into the fall, my husband, Mark, and I decided we’d like to make a year’s supply of hard cider. The task required little more than a huge amount of apples, tons of time and the proper equipment. Over the next couple of weeks we picked a lot of apples — I lost count, but let’s say 14,052 — from our four trees and procured a vintage but working meat grinder that served admirably to grind the apples into a fine pomace, which we then made into cider with a press Mark had built several years ago.

Clippings by Andy Kirkaldy: Judge town office plan on its merits

Posted on September 12, 2013 | Blog Category:
By Andy Kirkaldy



Opposition continues to be heard to the new Middlebury municipal building proposal, some of it reasonable, but some of it apparently not based on the details of the plan itself.

Rather, some have cited past votes that supported keeping the current site as a rationale to say no to the selectboard’s current proposal. Others expressing opposition seem to be miffed they were not included in the process.

Clippings by Xian: So long and thanks for the ride

Posted on August 29, 2013 |
By Xian Chiang-Waren



A few weeks ago, I hopped off the ACTR Tri-Town Shuttle at Mount Abraham Union High School to pay an unexpected visit to a Spanish teacher whose name I didn’t know, who may or may not have been on the premises, who perhaps had something to do with a field trip fundraising effort that I thought would — probably — make a good photo-op for an inside page of the paper.

Clippings by John McCright: Internet brings the world to your fingertips

Posted on August 15, 2013 |
By John McCright



The Internet really is making the world a smaller place. Years ago presidents and other world leaders could have extensive private lives that were truly private. Now, with the 24-hour news cycle and the World Wide Web enabling just about anyone to become a publisher, any idiot sitting in a small town in Vermont can find out more than he ever wanted to know about everyone from his neighbor to the most powerful people in the world.

Clippings by Trent Campbell: Doughnut apocolypse strikes NYC

Posted on August 1, 2013 |
By Trent Campbell



Leave it to the Big Apple. Only in New York City could there be a black market for doughnuts. Well, that’s not completely accurate. The black market is actually for cronuts. In case you haven’t heard, a cronut is a cross between a doughnut and a croissant, and it is the hottest thing going right now in a city overflowing with hot things. New Yorkers, it seems, have gone nuts for cronuts.
