Editorial: Democrats vie in Addison-4

Posted on August 6, 2018 |
By Angelo Lynn



The one legislative race in Addison County featuring a competitive primary is in Addison-4, the district representing Bristol, Monkton, Lincoln and Starksboro. The reason for the interest is the seat being vacated by Rep. Dave Sharpe, D-Bristol, who is stepping down to allow others to serve.

In this two-seat district, the other seat is held by Republican Fred Baser, also of Bristol, who is running for re-election. He has no opposition in the Primary Election on Aug. 14. Of the four Democrats running, two will advance to face Baser and Independent Vallerie Mullin.

Editorial: If Trump were a Democrat!

Posted on July 26, 2018 |
By Angelo Lynn



If Donald Trump were a Democrat and president, can you imagine how outraged Republicans would be? Let’s count the ways:

• Trump took a knee in Helsinki, essentially kowtowing to Russian President Vladimir Putin, and trashing our own intelligence team and, by extension, our armed services. After years of counting Russia as their mortal enemy, Republicans before Trump would have been apoplectic. Even Veteran groups protested Trump’s weakness and defended the truthfulness of America’s press.

Here’s a challenge for Addison County residents: Find an area dedicated to public use that needs cleaning up and work out a way to get it done.

Posted on July 19, 2018 |
By Angelo Lynn



Of the dozens of political columns we read about Donald Trump’s meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki this past Monday, long-time conservative columnist (and erstwhile Republican) George Wills captured Trump’s galling performance in the most accurate terms:

“In Helsinki, the president who bandies the phrase “America First,” put himself first, as always, and America last, behind President Vladimir Putin’s regime…

What a glorious week it was. Throughout Addison County, it was relatively cool and dry and in Middlebury that blessed the 40th annual Festival on-the-Green with near perfect weather to match unrivaled music from a wide variety of musicians. That variety is what the Festival does best: exposing us all to an eclectic mix of musicians to broaden our appreciation of different songs, beats and rhythms.
