Letter to the Editor: Porter went 'above and beyond' for hospice patient

Posted on April 24, 2017 |
By Inez Martel



My husband Joseph J. Martel died March 31, 2017 after a long illness. He was in the Arch Room (Hospice) for four days. The care he got was above and beyond. The nurses, who were busy, would take the time to ask us if we were okay and when they had to do anything to Joe they bent down and whispered in his ear “this is going to hurt, but will be quick.” They took time for the little things. When he passed they put flowers on him.

Letter to the editor: Are foreign students a solution for Vt.?

Posted on April 20, 2017 |
By Dave Kelley



While the Vermont Legislature has been grappling with Vermont’s shrinking student enrollment with heavy-handed mandates like Act 46, which in some school districts will do more harm than good, the Campaign for Vermont has put a more creative and more promising proposal on the table. Issued March 23, and entitled “Re-Energizing Vermont’s Public Education System: Making Vermont an Education Destination” the proposal calls for Vermont to become more active in recruiting international exchange students.

Letter to the editor: New DMV rules an entire 'power grab'

Posted on April 20, 2017 |
By Prem Prakash



I don’t like when state bureaucrats figure out a new way to intrude in our lives, and charge us additional tax dollars while they are at it. It also bugs me when they disguise their schemes in the name of “safety.” I’ll give the Vermont Department of Motor Vehicles credit for being crooked, though; they’ve concocted a scam to increase costs to drivers, enlarge their bureaucracy, and cluck about safety all without public input or Legislative review.

Ways of Seeing: Time to do a little sheep grazing

Posted on April 20, 2017 |
By Cheryl Mitchell



Our young granddaughter was here for part of lambing season this year. She wondered why we had to do chores so often. In the summer, we just tend the sheep once a day. This time of year, we may be checking every few hours. But she was game to try (usually) and we settled into a nice routine of checking on lambs, refilling water buckets, and offering hay and grain.

By Eric L. Davis

Posted on April 20, 2017 |
By Victor Nuovo



Now we come to Aristotle. Political science is only one of the sciences that he invented. He was the parent of many: logic, physics, biology, psychology, rhetoric, poetics, metaphysics and the theory of scientific method and explanation generally.

Note of appreciation: Local woman is grateful for local courteous service

Posted on April 20, 2017 |
By Louise Zimmer



I want to thank the staff at the Middlebury Natural Foods Co-op for the wonderful gracious way they go about serving their customers. When I inadvertently knocked over the Guinness cans causing one or two to split open, two staff were there in a flash to clean up and assure me not to worry about it. They actually seemed more concerned that some beer may have splashed on my jeans. Then later at checkout, the cashier was very helpful, getting me some boxes to pack my groceries as I had forgotten my reusable bags.
