Anyone who experiences stress — absolutely every person on the planet — knows physical activity makes you feel better. There’s nothing like a brisk walk — around the Trail Around Middlebury, in the Green Mountains or just around town, or a run or bike ride— to clear one’s mind of life’s annoyances.

Posted on October 2, 2014 |
By Angelo S. Lynn

Seven minutes to remember the promise of an event 19 years ago in which a group of famous singers and musicians throughout the USA came together to create a medley of hope, understanding and a willingness to give. The event, or national movement, was called USA for Africa and the song they sung was titled “We are the World.” The cause was fighting hunger in African nations.

Posted on September 29, 2014 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



In the summer of 1997, Florida architect Alfred Browning Parker, who had a second home in Lincoln, proposed a futurist design for a restaurant that would sit atop of the old mill powerhouse at the edge of the Middlebury Falls on Otter Creek. A front-page sketch of Parker’s vision (published on June 27, 1997) resembled a three-story space needle-like structure with magnificent views of the falls and river.

Posted on September 22, 2014 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



Here’s a comment by a Vermont solar company executive that offers as much hope as it presents concern: “In the future, solar panels are going to be as ubiquitous as barns and silos, and we should be working toward it, not against it.”

Editorial: Middlebury visitors' center in town offices still a good idea

Posted on September 11, 2014 |
By Angelo S. Lynn

The center would have served as the place in town for traveling guests to drop in, look through brochures and, hopefully, talk to someone about the highlights of things to do and see in the area. It is standard fare in most tourist destination areas throughout the U.S., Europe, and much of the world.
