Letter to the editor: Photographer Campbell gives thanks

Posted on June 6, 2019 |
By Trent Campbell



Regarding Angelo Lynn’s May 23 editorial, I truly appreciate your beautifully written words just as I appreciate your words of kindness and support throughout my many years at the paper. I’ll be honest — sometimes you test me, but mostly I get support and inspiration, as I also do from my wonderful colleagues. I love you all! And I am happy to say that my great co-workers are also my great friends.

By Peter Grant



On Page 4A of your May 30 newspaper, there was a photo of adult college graduates doing something harmful to our environment, with a caption that seems to encourage such waste. They were being handed single-use water bottles.

Editorial: A superior idea, but do we have the will to adopt universal free meals?

Posted on June 3, 2019 |
By Angelo Lynn



The idea of “universal free meals” for all school students during the academic school year is so obviously superior to what this country has done for a century or more, one wonders how we ever thought that singling out a select group of kids for a subsidized meal was a good idea.

Living with dying: Graduating grief?

Living with Dying Graduating Grief photo BW 6 03 19.jpg

Graduating Grief?

 

Freshmen:

New-kid-on-the-block of grieving,

the home we knew - no longer within reach.

Deposited in a world full of strange new demands,

and others like me – dazed looking, searching for equilibrium.

“It’s a new beginning!” – they say.

“You’ll get used to it!” – they say.

 

Sophomore:

Survived freshman year – in a haze.

Posted on June 3, 2019 |
By Alec Lyall



The Constitution of the United States does not require a sitting President to read, speak or understand English, or any particular language, three things required by law for lots of occupations. Writing down words, correctly spelled or not, isn’t mentioned one way or the other.

By Gary Margolis



“Memorial Day Without Him”

 

Where’s our hopeful, next-president

senator? Why isn’t he here?

Taking a year off?

Not enough votes, among the candy-

catching children. The Rotary Club

 

throwing their sparkling necklaces.

Our kind of Addison County Mardi Gras.

This Memorial Day. Sidewalks lined

with dogs and neighbors, sunning

in their wheelchairs, A few dignitaries

Letter to the editor: Vermont can't fix global warming on its own

Posted on June 3, 2019 |
By Steve Reynolds



Regarding “Protesters give legislators and F on climate work” (Addison Independent, May 27): It is unreasonable and unfair to put the blame and responsibility for the remedy to climate change at the feet of the Vermont legislator.
