Letter to the editor: Poetic farewell to coffee shop

REQUIEM FOR CAROL’S

They say that every word spoken moves through the universe eternally, and who can tell about thought?

Dreamtime recedes

but the ways remain.

Minds stay hungry.

Nothing lasts forever,

and nothing is ever lost.

 

Thanks, John

Letter to the editor: Holmes deserves to be Addison County's next sheriff

Posted on August 9, 2018 |
By Sandy Crossman



I am supporting Ron Holmes for Sheriff as I believe he has proven his dedication to the community. There is no one that cares more about safety in the schools, homes, or streets.

I met Ron about seven years ago at Helen Porter when both our mothers were patients there. He was a consummate and constant caretaker as he quietly showed his loyalty. This is the kind of person that will best serve Addison County — one that has loyalty, integrity, dedication and honor.

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.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank John Flowers for writing about our upcoming trip for Hajj to Saudi Arabia. This is a unique opportunity presented to us and we are blessed to embark on this spiritual journey.

While we had mentioned to John that we may have to close the store for the duration, we are thrilled to say that one of our cousins is going to be here and take care of the store in our absence.

Letter to the editor: Ehlers is the best pick for governor

Posted on August 6, 2018 |
By Clark Hinsdale



I was pleased to vote for Phil Scott two years ago given his record of bipartisanship during his time in the Vermont Senate. However, the vetoes and partisanship that marked the end of this legislative session has changed my mind and many other minds as well. We need to support our Legislature and Congressional delegation by electing a governor who will work with them and not against them.
