Clippings by John McCright: Internet brings the world to your fingertips

Posted on August 15, 2013 |
By John McCright



The Internet really is making the world a smaller place. Years ago presidents and other world leaders could have extensive private lives that were truly private. Now, with the 24-hour news cycle and the World Wide Web enabling just about anyone to become a publisher, any idiot sitting in a small town in Vermont can find out more than he ever wanted to know about everyone from his neighbor to the most powerful people in the world.

Jessie Raymond: My goat has a taste for finer things

Posted on June 20, 2013 |
By Jessie Raymond



Jessie's goat.JPG

One recent morning, my husband, Mark, and I sat on the back porch with our feet up, drinking our coffee and enjoying some much-needed sunshine. A typical late spring scene, really.

Except, perhaps, for the goat.

Lucy, our one remaining goat, had trip-trapped onto the porch like she often does, to stare at us with her lazy yellow eyes. And smirk. She’s always smirking.

Ways of Seeing: Faith and doubt are often together

Posted on June 13, 2013 |
By Rev. Andrew Nagy-Benson



Nagy Benson.jpg

“I’ll believe it when I see it!”

As a child, I became familiar with that expression. It might have had something to do with my walking into the house with muddy sneakers for the billionth time. Or my incessant insistence from the backseat of the station wagon that my sister was on my side — she crossed the line! At times like these, my mother would give me a look and offer a well-earned corrective. Before the bench of maternal justice, I’d offer guaranteed forecasts of better behavior. The Judge looked hopeful, if unconvinced.

Clippings: They peek when François sings

Posted on April 4, 2013 |
By Karl Lindholm



Clippings by Lindholm MLK9991.jpg

I have a favorite moment at Middlebury College basketball games. It’s when François Clemmons begins to sing the National Anthem.

I dreaded the Anthem when I was an athlete. I was ready to play the game. Starters had been announced and were out on the playing surface, tense, excited, full of adrenaline. Let’s go!

Then we had to wait, often for a scratchy recording, sometimes for a live singer, who sang at a funereal pace.

Greg Dennis: In quary photos, Vermont rediscovered

Posted on April 4, 2013 |
By Greg Dennis



We are surrounded by marble and granite, so much so that we rarely give it a thought. Much of the state is made of the stuff, our mountains and courthouses and old inns.

Marble and granite are among our most famous exports. When we see TV images of the U.S. Supreme Court and the Lincoln and Jefferson memorials, we are looking at pieces of Vermont.

What happens, though, when we see the stone itself as art?

By Ron Shems
