Opinion: Mount Abe building renovation plan ill-conceived

Posted on October 24, 2014 |
By John Clarke



While I remain a committed supporter of Mount Abraham Union High School, I am disappointed with the plan for renovation and upkeep. Rather than fitting building plans to the significant steps Mount Abe has made over 40 years toward improved learning, the plan seems to aim toward a restoration of structures designed for 1968, when the school was built.

Editorial: The crazy thing about Mt. Abe's $32.6 million bond is that it's not all crazy

Posted on October 23, 2014 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



Tour the Mount Abraham Union High School and Middle School facility and you come away with one distinct impression: it’s a building in need of significant repair.

Consider the proposed $32.6 million bond to finance those repairs and you also have a visceral reaction: that’s a lot of money and, by the way, has the school board completely lost touch with area taxpayers?

Clippings: Dogs offer entertainment, training

Dogs.jpg

Between squirrels desperate to pack away enough food for the winter and dry leaves blowing across the sidewalk, fall is the most difficult time to walk our dogs.

Both Crown, a Lab/German pointer mix we’ve had four years or so, and Reina, a Lab/pit bull mix who’s been happily chewing our belongings for two years, have what my wife calls “strong prey drives.”

Opinion: Fisher an ally in drug abuse fight

Posted on October 23, 2014 |
By Bob Donnis



Michael Fisher has my support on Nov. 4.

Michael Fisher knows we have a huge drug addiction problem in Addison County. He knows that addiction is a disease that needs to be treated. He knows we need more treatment for more addicts in Addison County, and has worked with community organizations and the state to help make that happen.

Please join me in voting for Michael Fisher.

Thank you.

Opinion: Sheldon would bring clear vision

Posted on October 23, 2014 |
By David Littlefield



When I wake up in the morning on a clear day in Middlebury I can see both up close and as far as the terrain will permit me our wonderful town and countryside. If, on the other hand, I’m asked after the customary Thanksgiving dinner to help clear the table, I know, too, what “clear” means: Look around this table and let’s work together on a happy cleanup. Let’s get things in order again.

I am voting for Mike Fisher for state representative this November.

I have been around for a few years. I have seen many politicians come and go. I support Mike Fisher because he is patient, he listens even when people are frustrated, he works very hard for us. I hope you will vote for Mike, too.

Opinion: McEathron and Sheldon touted

Posted on October 23, 2014 |
By Peter James



For the first time in a while, I’m excited for a House race in Middlebury. The young independent Calvin McEathron has injected energy into the race, promising to tackle the tough economic challenges Vermont is facing, especially his support and ideas around small-scale economic development.

He’s a hardworking candidate who has dedicated himself to meeting constituents and earning every vote. He has earned my respect and he will represent Middlebury well.

Opinion: Mount Abe building project excludes 'hands-on' space

Posted on October 23, 2014 |
By Jim Brown



First and foremost I am writing this representing myself only. If what I am saying rings true with anyone else then it will serve as a reminder that you are not alone in your thoughts.

Second, I would like to acknowledge and thank all the folks on the building advisory committee for their long hours and hard work. My remarks are in no way meant to downplay your findings, only to express my opinion.
