Clippings: Job creation not exactly Job One

Posted on November 21, 2012 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



 

The impending demise of Hostess Brands Inc. is good for a few cheap laughs.

To start with, Hostess’s signature product, the Twinkie, is inherently funny. It has been theorized that only rats, cockroaches and Twinkies would survive the end of the world as we know it. My niece Carrie forwarded a George Takei tidbit about a looming December prediction of doom and noted the timing of Twinkies’ demise: “Well played, Mayans.”

The Outside Story: Some thoughts on ’12 foliage season

Posted on November 12, 2012 |
By John Burk



Many enjoy New England’s fall foliage for its aesthetics alone, and with good reason: It’s a spectacle that draws visitors from around the world. However, the unique progression of each foliage season also provides careful observers with insight related to forest health and short- and long-term climate.

Editorial: Americans reject exclusivity

It will take weeks to digest the political implications of Tuesday’s stunning national elections, but if you had to sum it up in a word, that word might be “inclusive.”

Clippings: The election is over, please shut up

Posted on November 8, 2012 |
By John McCright



I was driving into work on the morning after the election and I heard a Republican strategist on the radio asked about how the GOP needs to change to build a coalition that can win a presidential election. The guy stammered about Republican governors and the House of Representatives for a few minutes, then admitted that he didn’t know.

A pundit admitting that he didn’t know! I let out a big sigh; what a relief.

Around the Bend: Weather forecasting is up in the air

Posted on November 8, 2012 |
By Jessie Raymond



When you ask people, “What’s this winter going to be like?” the respondents fall into two camps: Those who believe it’s going to be super-snowy, and those who believe it’s going to be a lot like last year. In other words, Camp A really wants to go skiing and Camp B hates to shovel.

But who’s right?

Editorial: Obama for president

Posted on November 5, 2012 |
By Angelo Lynn



In the race for president, set aside everything you know about the two candidates for a moment and reflect on the country you want to live in. Is it a country whose foundation is to strengthen the whole, or to strengthen the individual? Is it a country willing to help those less fortunate or do all Americans fend for themselves? Is it a country that employs a tax policy that seeks to spread wealth, or is it a country that favors a growing gap between rich and poor?

Editorial: Endorsements, but first, let’s make Election Day a holiday

Posted on November 1, 2012 |
By Angelo Lynn



Election Day should be a national holiday simply to encourage as many American citizens as possible to make it to the polls and vote. Why not? Certainly it’s a more important day than, say, Columbus Day. Ideally, voters would use at least part of the day to make a final review of the candidates. Everyone knows something about the presidential race, but a good many Americans don’t know much about some of the state offices or the differences between the candidates for their state legislatures.

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.

Politically Thinking: State’s D.C. incumbents will roll

Posted on November 1, 2012 |
By Eric Davis



Sen. Bernie Sanders and Rep. Peter Welch are overwhelming favorites to be re-elected next week. These two candidates may get more votes than anyone else listed on the ballot, including President Obama and Gov. Shumlin. Sanders could be the top vote-getter in Vermont, with about 70 percent of the vote, with Welch not far behind in the mid-60 percent range.

Men find refuge, solace in their cars

Posted on October 25, 2012 |
By Karl Lindholm



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.
