Jessie Raymond: Getting older, and getting 'the look'

Posted on August 3, 2017 |
By Jessie Raymond



On the whole, I’d have to say the pros of aging are so far outweighing the cons. But I do have one complaint: young people.

It’s not what you think: I’m not on the “millennials are lazy and entitled” bandwagon. I know a lot of millennials who work harder than I ever did at their age. You could say I was a millennial before the millennium.

Ways of Seeing, Joanna Colwell: We must refuse to ignore injustice

Posted on August 3, 2017 |
By Joanna Colwell



Last week in Minneapolis a police officer killed a forty-year-old white lady named Justine Damond. She was a soon-to-be married meditation teacher from Australia, who called the police because she thought she heard an assault taking place behind her house. There are many unanswered questions, and because neither police officer had their body cameras activated, we will probably never know exactly what happened. One thing is definitely true, though. Instead of the wedding that was planned for August, there will be a funeral.

MEMO to: Aaron Sorkin

FROM: Dirk Diggler

RE: Your proposal for new political shows

Aaron, baby, I’m so excited to make the shows you’re proposing. Now that it’s mid-2007 and everyone is starting to think about the upcoming 2008 presidential election, I’m sure there’s going to be huge viewership for both shows.

Letters to the Editor: Could politicians pass citizenship test?

Posted on August 3, 2017 |
By Sue Sparks



Food for Thought?

Suppose that Senators and representatives at the state and federal levels had to pass the same test required of immigrants on their path to U.S. Citizenship.

Perhaps then we would have more faith and trust in those who are supposed to speak for us … We the people.

Letters to the Editor: Health care for all is inevitable

Posted on August 3, 2017 |
By Maggie Hall



On April 19, 2000, then Vermont Governor Howard Dean signed into law the Civil Union bill granting the same legal protections of marriage for same sex couples. This was considered a major victory but a bittersweet victory for same sex couples because it went somewhere significant but it still marginalized same sex couples as ‘other.’ This bill was a pioneer bill — nothing like it had ever been done before — and therefore there was a lot of fear and anger about the unknown and what it might mean.

Editorial: Party on! Making the most of it

Posted on August 3, 2017 |
By Angelo Lynn



This Wednesday night in downtown Middlebury — along with the continous noise of construction crews — stores stayed open late, people milled around to shop, eat a bag of popcorn, listen to live music and enjoy what promoters were calling a Downtown Block Party.

The idea was to demonstrate that downtown businesses were still open and eager for business and that despite ongoing construction, the downtown was still a fun place to frequent.

Editorial: Lack of GOP plan kills repeal; is fixing Obamacare the next step?

Posted on July 31, 2017 |
By Angelo Lynn



What Republicans hopefully learned last Friday, after its last-ditch effort to repeal ObamaCare failed in the Senate, is that just being opposed to policy isn’t enough. You have to also prepare a replacement policy that better serves the public.
