Between the Lines: Shaking off the January blues

Posted on January 6, 2011 |
By Gregory Dennis



It’s right about this time of year that some of us begin to wonder why we ever thought it was a good idea to live in Vermont in the first place: Two weeks after Christmas and three more months of wintry weather to come.

Couldn’t God have just skipped January (and maybe November) and given us only the shocking green of spring, the lazy warmth of summer, and the gold of autumn?

Sure, we’ll take a few weeks of late winter thrown in there for good measure, complete with longer days and fresh maple syrup.

But as for January? A lot of us would just as soon hit the fast-forward button.

Between the Lines: The Snow Bowl is alive and well

For skiers, no website is as bittersweet as the one dedicated to the New England Lost Ski Areas Project.

NELSAP chronicles the history of the scores of New England ski areas that have closed their doors over the past 70 years.

There was a ski area in Bristol, for example. The website quotes a 1939 source, “Ski Trails in the East and How to Get There”:

Between the Lines: Choosing a tree, and a life

Posted on December 9, 2010 |
By Gregory Dennis



It’s way too early to get a Christmas tree, I said.

But V. and S. had other ideas.

I grew up in a family that reserved the annual finding and cutting of the tree until the day of Christmas Eve. To their way of thinking, the day after Thanksgiving isn’t too early.

The first weekend of December, in my childhood experience, was for paging through the Sears catalog and figuring out if you were going to ask Santa for a new bike or a Fanner Fifty cap gun.

Between the Lines: Saying thanks for life's small heroes

Posted on November 24, 2010 | Blog Category:
By Gregory Dennis



There are plenty of reasons to see through the glass darkly in late November. You don’t need me to remind you what they are.

But there are also good reasons why it’s become an American tradition to say thanks amid the gathering darkness.

On this holiday, I’m grateful for a few small-time heroes.

I call them “small-time” not because their heroism is petty or unworthy. It’s just that their kind of everyday valor goes largely unnoticed.

I got to thinking about that when I attended a wedding at the Waybury Inn this past summer.

Between the Lines: Listenin' to the (Tom) Rush of time

Posted on November 11, 2010 |
By Gregory Dennis



To hear what it was like to play professional football in the early days of the NFL, you’d want to talk to a guy like Y.A. Tittle. Interested in the history of the feminist movement? Go hear a Gloria Steinem talk. George McGovern could tell you all you needed to know about trying to change a political party.

And if you wanted to learn about folk music — which reaches back several centuries yet still shapes the music we hear today — you couldn’t do much better than going to a Tom Rush concert.

Between the Lines: 350.org and social media activism

Posted on October 14, 2010 |
By Gregory Dennis



Almost every day at Middlebury College, I receive an influx of e-mails announcing the latest environmental initiatives and encouraging students to make their voices heard.

Last weekend, climate change activism took the global stage by storm with the 10/10/10 Global Work Party organized by 350.org. The group inspired a groundbreaking 7,347 events across 188 countries. With such broad-based support, the case for change seems fairly clear: People are demanding a global transition towards a clean energy economy.

Between The Lines: A communal Boomer retirement

Posted on September 30, 2010 |
By Gregory Dennis



It doesn’t seem all that long ago that we were college freshmen.

On a Friday night in September of 1970, the four of us trooped down to Mister Up’s for a big dinner out. We were full of excitement about what our new college adventure would bring.

Between the Lines: Naked truth on skinny-dipping candidates

Posted on September 16, 2010 |
By Gregory Dennis



Vermonters will be asked to choose between two very different gubernatorial candidates this fall, and two different visions of Vermont.

But at least along the way, we can be assured of some laughs.

Republican Brian Dubie sees a state imperiled by high taxes, anti-business sentiment and wasteful education spending. He’s against reproductive choice and gay marriage.

Democrat Peter Shumlin sees a state that has made great progress on gay marriage while also defending reproductive choice, but that now needs single-payer health care.

Between the lines: College in the age of helicopter parents

Posted on September 2, 2010 |
By Gregory Dennis



Barbara Hofer is having more fun than the average college professor. With her new book featured on “The Early Show” and in USA Today, who can blame her?

Hofer, a psychology professor at Middlebury College, is co-author of “The iConnected Parent.” The book explores the reasons behind the often creepy connection that many of today’s college students have with their parents — and what mom and dad can do about it.

Between the Lines: Small town values remain strong

Posted on August 19, 2010 |
By Gregory Dennis



I was a little nervous as I headed to the reunion dinner at the VFW in the tiny western New York State town where I grew up.

My classmates and I were gathering from locations that ranged from an apartment down the street to a house in Thessaloniki, Greece.

I’m sure every one of us heading to the event felt a touch of the silly old fears that come with these gatherings. Then I spotted the big orange sign on the nearby bridge over the Erie Canal:

“WARNING: Emergency Scene Ahead.”
