By Addison Independent



Thank you to Judy and Michael Olinick for bringing to the surface the great disastrous day at Middlebury College in May of 1991. They did a fine job of telling the story as it happened.

Opinion: No justification for coyote killing

Posted on May 26, 2016 |
By Addison Independent



Since becoming a Vermont resident in 2003, I periodically have been shocked by the behavior of some hunters. Specifically, I’m referring to hunters who participate in coyote contest hunts or just “run their dogs” on coyotes for the thrill of the kill.

Guest editorial: Making college affordable is a front-burner issue in Vt.

Posted on May 26, 2016 |
By Jeb Spaulding



Of the 6,000 or so Vermonters about to graduate from high school, more than 2,000 are unlikely to further their education after June. They will join a growing cohort of young Vermonters who lack the credentials necessary to succeed in our economy. In fact, Vermont has the lowest college enrollment rate in New England.

Posted on May 23, 2016 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



The Beltway chatter among political pundits, as well as the Democratic Party elite, have been hammering home a single storyline for the past two weeks: Bernie Sanders’s continued presence in the primary is hurting Hillary Clinton’s chances to beat Republican Donald Trump.

Opinion: Defense of ExxonMobil was misguided

Posted on May 23, 2016 |

Opinion: Vermont possesses many positives to be celebrated

Posted on May 23, 2016 |
By Barry Curchill



Our pioneers ventured to an expansive new land of country fertility and vast horizons. An opportunity for a new life, where in England and Europe they were oppressed and religiously persecuted. The Homestead Act, the Boston Tea Party, Jamestown settlements — all our forerunners indicated they wanted to be fair, just and equitable in giving a new generation an opportunity of a lifetime.

Opinion: Article on Matt Dunne lacked depth

Posted on May 23, 2016 |
By Eric Zuesse

Ways of Seeing: Practicing inclusions

Posted on May 19, 2016 |
By Alice Leeds



In my English Composition class at the Community College of Vermont, I have worked with students from China, Japan, Vietnam, Iraq, the Philippines, Puerto Rico and Nepal. These students struggle to simultaneously learn English and adapt to our culture while navigating the demands of college assignments.

Editorial: Sen. Ayer: A leader with the right stuff for Senate post

Posted on May 19, 2016 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



As a leadership vacuum sweeps through the Golden Dome in Montpelier, the race for Senate president pro tempore has taken on added significance. With other changes in political leadership looming—including races for governor, lieutenant governor and attorney general—and a caucus for a new House Speaker, a premium on political experience, organization and people skills to forge consensus make Sen.
