Jessie Raymond: Reluctant accountant gets surprise

Posted on January 19, 2017 |
By Jessie Raymond



o jessenew.jpg

As the reluctant bookkeeper for my husband’s business, I dread this time of year: It’s tax season. I hate thinking about money, much less keeping track of it, and I don’t really understand accounting.

It’s not that I’m bad at math; back in my school days, I never met a cosine I didn’t like. But my accountant insists that fun stuff like vectors and rational coefficients aren’t appropriate for small-business accounting, and that I need to stop using the quadratic formula altogether (apparently, it’s screwing up payroll).

Ways of Seeing by Laurie Borden: Hospice work offers hope, wisdom

Posted on January 19, 2017 |
By Laurie Borden



o Borden, Laurie - Ways of Seeing.jpg

As we begin 2017, there are so many unknowns. Similar to the process of death, we can’t predict anything — mystery abounds. It doesn’t matter where we stand in our political tendencies, religious practices and cultural traditions or where we fall on the economic, social, sexual and wellness spectrums. Regardless of who we are or where we are — we will face change, we will face life and we will face death.

Posted on January 19, 2017 |
By Faith Terry



The Women’s March

On Jan. 21, hundreds of thousands of women are marching in Washington, D.C. and, simultaneously, throughout our country, to express the values we hold sacred as women in our society, as Americans, and as a citizens of our Earth.

We, the people, must no longer endure inflamed public discourse that validates longstanding violations of our human rights. Nor can we permit those violations to continue.

By Alix O'Meara



According to the Vermont Department on Aging, 23.8 percent of Vermonters will be over the age of 65 by 2032, which will rank Vermont’s population as the oldest in the nation. This will have widespread implications for Vermont’s health care system and local communities.

Posted on January 19, 2017 |
By Bruz Brown



As we transition to a new administration on Jan. 20, I felt compelled to write and thank President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden for their service to our country over the last eight years. These two men are extraordinary human beings. Their commitment to all of the people of the United States has been clearly demonstrated throughout their years of public service.

Letter to the editor: 'Casting your whole vote' is best response to election

Posted on January 19, 2017 |
By Harry Yeo Chaucer



A couple of weeks ago, I began to ask my friends how they were coping withthe national election and how they were responding to the changing of the guard. Some are coping by withdrawing. One says that she listens to WOKO instead of public radio. Others have built strategies for regulating the amount of distressing news that they take in in a day, and listen to music, talk about other things with friends, work out more, hug their spouse closer or spend more time in nature or museums.

Letter to the editor: Keep open mind, follow evidence

Posted on January 19, 2017 |
By Jerry Shedd



I applaud Joanna Colwell for her fine critique of Wayne Dyer’s unhelpful aphorisms (Ways of Seeing, Jan. 12). She deserves further applause for pointing out similar “harmful ideas” even in her own field of yoga. (Incidentally, the word “spiritualism” means so many different things to different people that it is completely useless. Let’s not use it anymore.)
