Clippings: Ready for 2nd helping of Halloween

Posted on November 1, 2012 |
By Trent Campbell



Some of my colleagues here at the Addison Independent often joke that stories from my childhood remind them of something out of the “Our Gang” comedies of the 1930s. Reporter John Flowers refers to me and my old childhood buddy Donnie Andresen as Spanky and Alfalfa (if you are young and don’t recognize those names just YouTube them into your Google machines, or do a tweet or something). Now Spanky isn’t a name I would wish on anyone, but I proudly wear the Spanky badge.

Men find refuge, solace in their cars

Karl Linholm Clippings dad's car.jpg

Yes, I have retired, but I am allowed to teach one course a year in retirement, so that’s what I do.

I teach my class in the late morning, and then I don’t go back to an office with a desk full of unmet responsibilities and an e-mail inbox of notes impossible to respond to adequately.

Instead, I go home and walk the dogs. Or I go to lunch with a friend.

Clippings: Peace message highly guarded

Posted on October 18, 2012 |
By John Flowers



I began reporting for the Addison Independent way back in 1990, but there are times when it seems like it was only yesterday that I picked up my first notepad to research such stories as Olin Robison retiring as Middlebury College president; Gov. Madeleine Kunin electing to take a pass on another term; and Hannah’s Market closing in downtown Vergennes.

Clippings: Learning to listen in a narcissistic land

Posted on September 27, 2012 |
By Angelo Lynn



In an essay written by a Ripton 15-year-old student contemplating the changes she faced moving from her middle school of 26 students to the 600-plus students at Middlebury Union High School, she touched on a striking revelation that many adults would do well to ponder: through her studies she had gained a sensitivity to the world around her.

Clippings: Flacks can drive an editor crazy

By John S. McCright



I get a lot of press releases in my email, hundreds a week, and they are the bane of my work life.

No, not the press releases I get from you, dear reader, about church dinners and teen center fundraisers. If you are reading this I would probably appreciate getting a press release from you.

Between the Lines: Adventures in Moving, Vermont Style

Posted on September 13, 2012 |
By Gregory Dennis



From the ancient caves of Lascaux to the 21st century towers of Dubai, there has always been something magical about the ways in which humans convert nothingness into spaces for living.

Fascinating though the process may be, though, it rarely goes as planned. And sometimes it’s the unexpected wrinkles — the shelf in the wrong size that gets turned into a lovely coffee table, the windows placed too low but leaving room for paintings — it’s these little twists in the process that alchemize the mere physical object of a house into memories, and a home.

Clippings: My moon landing with Neil (Armstrong)

Posted on September 6, 2012 |
By Trent Campbell



pparently there was a little confusion surrounding the recent death of Apollo 11 astronaut Neil Armstrong. Some people got him mixed up with Lance Armstrong, the newly shamed bicyclist, and NBC posted that astronaut Neil Young had died. I guess it is easy to confuse a guy who wrote a song called “Harvest Moon” with a guy who walked on the moon. For anyone around my age or older, though, the name Neil Armstrong and the defining moment of the first manned moon landing will forever be etched in our minds.

Clippings: Reporter hungry for new pursuits

By the time you read this, I’ll most likely have finished up my time at the Addison Independent with more than a few tears.

As I write it, I’m preparing to move on from this three-year experience that’s taught me almost everything I know about journalism, agriculture, technology and adult life.

I started here at the Addy Indy as an intern, fresh out of Middlebury College armed with an English degree and a mighty indecision about what I wanted to do with my life.

Clippings: Looking back at a year and a half

Posted on August 16, 2012 |
By Andrew Stein



When I moved back to the U.S. from China in December 2010, I felt rootless.

Growing up in a small township in western Pennsylvania and having graduated from a college of 1,600, I was fortunate to have had my formative years shaped by tight-knit communities. While I found a similar sense of support teaching at a Chinese public school after graduating from Kenyon College, that feeling of community eluded me the following year.
