Letters to the Editor

To the Editor,
The Deerfield Valley Rotary Club ran a very successful fundraiser on July 18: the first Garden and Live Music Tour, which sold out prior to the event. 
There were seven homeowners who graciously opened their gardens for the tour. Ten musicians played live across those...
To the Editor,
I am an alumnus of Marlboro College, class 1982, and feel very strongly about not closing down the college. Instead, Marlboro College should sustain the original intent of the founding members and continue its great mission, providing a well-rounded education and opportunity...
To the Editor,
It was 1965. Dad and Mom took their four kids to Mississippi for the march for voter registration. Daddy told me that if we got separated, to know that “remember when you learned in school that the policemen are your friends? Well, forget it.” That was so true there. Mom was...

To the Editor,
I like to hike and mountain bike on the back roads and trails of southern Vermont. When out on these adventures I never pass up an opportunity to visit the many small cemeteries that I often come across. On a recent adventure, mountain biking on snowmobile trails near the...
