Letter to the editor: Let's surprise ourselves with high primary turnout

Posted on August 13, 2018 |
By Letitia Allyson Wulff



On Tuesday, Aug. 14, voters will go to the polls to cast Primary Election ballots. The General Election in November follows.

It’s summer and primaries can seem less significant than the “real” election in the autumn. But I am hopeful that we will surprise ourselves by how many of us find a few minutes to participate on Primary election day — choosing who we most want to represent us and to thereby enhance the strength and well-being of our community.

Clippings: Best summer ever, right in my 'backyard'

Posted on August 9, 2018 |
By James Finn

As the school year creeps along, Middlebury College students expend tons of energy seeking summer jobs, internships, travel opportunities or other “substantive” ways to spend the summer months. Career interests are the main part of the equation; bustling cities like New York and Boston are oft-preferred destinations. When summer arrives students flock to these cities to pursue big-time tech, finance or PR internships; or they return to their hometowns where family, childhood friends and smaller-town summer job opportunities beckon.
