By Angelo S. Lynn



In this political era in which the leading Republicans of the land stumble over themselves to reject the wisdom of separating church in state in a political context; in which cutting taxes to corporations is the panacea for all that ails us; in which cow-towing to the fanatical wing of the party is the only path to the nomination; it is instructive and nostalgic, perhaps, to want to revisit President Abraham Lincoln’s speech on slavery made in the Cooper Union, New York City on Feb. 27, 1860 – 152 years ago.

As expected, the Vergennes Union High School boys’ basketball team and both Middlebury Union hockey teams learned on Monday from the Vermont Principals’ Association they would host first-round playoff games.

The 18-2 Commodore boys earned the top seed for the Division II playoffs and will host No. 16 Lamoille (6-14) on Tuesday at 7 p.m. A win on Tuesday means VUHS will host a Friday quarterfinal at 7 p.m. against either No. 8 Fair Haven (10-10) or No. 9 Bellows Falls (11-9). The Commodores have not faced any of those three teams this season.

Earlier this month, Williams met with Living Well staff, Bristol police and other concerned parties in Bristol’s Holley Hall to discuss the incident and to explore what authorities call a growing drug problem in Addison County.
