Eating Wild-Caught Fish Can be Healthy for You and the Environment

Photo by Tom Rogers, Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department.     Fishing is a favorite summer pastime among Vermonters and visitors to the state for good reason—fish tastes great. While anglers may enjoy fishing as a chance to get in the outdoors with friends and family, many also appreciate the benefit of bringing their catch home for a nutritious meal. Vermont anglers can hoo…

  One of my favorite old fairy tales is the one about the old farmer who goes to a wise man for advice because of how small his house is. The wise man tells him to move all his cows into the house. After a week the farmer goes back to the wise man and complains that the house is now smaller than ever. The wise man tells him to go home and move ALL his farm animals into the house. At the end of the week, he is almost at his wits end when he goes back to the wise man. This time the wise man tells him, to his shock, that he is to move all of his children and his children’s children into the house, and to come back in a week. By now the old farmer is beside himself. Now the wise man tell…

  “America: Love it or Leave it.” That’s a good idea for a bumper sticker. But it isn’t true. One of the many great things about the United States is that you don’t really have to choose. You can do neither. I’ll bet there are a solid 100 million people out there who don’t especially love America but certainly don’t have any intention of leaving. A wise man once said: “Freedom has many difficulties and democracy is not perfect. But we have never had to put a wall up to keep our people in - to prevent them from leaving us.” President Kennedy (or at least the dude who wrote that speech for him) brilliantly encapsulated the fundamental difference between our side and their side…

Congratulations, Emily Packard

Editor: Congratulations to Emily Packard, who made stock car racing history at Vermont’s Devil’s Bowl Speedway in Rutland. Emily attends high school at U-32 and is a senior. She set two records at the track, becoming the youngest to win a NASCAR Whelen All-American Series event in the late model division, and becoming the first woman to win in this division. I recently witnessed her racing ability at the Times Argus mid-season championship where she more than held her own against some of the best drivers in the State.   Senator Bill Doyle Washington County

Our family is a very diverse one. I suppose, these days, with all the traveling people do, and with our society’s total absorption into social media, and because of other factors I don’t even realize are happening, most families are more diverse than they might have been years ago. “We are,” in many respects, not only “what we eat,” as they used to say, but also what we experience, and who we ex…
