Posted on February 17, 2014 |
By William J. Mathis



This week’s writer is William J. Mathis, managing director of the National Education Policy Center and a Goshen resident. He served as a Vermont superintendent of schools and taught education finance at the University of Vermont.

The 94 votes in opposition make up a large part of the Tea Party conservatives that have undermined mainstream Republican and Democratic agendas for the past four years.

Editorial: A welcome nod to civility

Posted on October 31, 2013 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



We appreciate the divergence of opinion expressed in today’s letters to the editor concerning Middlebury’s proposed municipal building/recreation facility. We also agree, in a nod to civility on this Halloween eve, that future discussion be less descriptive and honed to the issues at hand.
