Give the Perfect Gift – the Gift of Life

Dear Editor: The fall and winter can be a busy time full of fun activities and travel, but the same activities that bring joy can also negatively impact patients in need of lifesaving transfusions. In fact, right now, the American Red Cross is facing a severe blood shortage and has issued an urgent call for eligible donors of all blood types to giv...

Customer Overcharges

To The Editor, In the last few weeks I have been overcharged at several businesses (none in Barre). Unfortunately I did not check my receipts until I got home.

Those Who Favor Abortion Sell It in Terms of a Woman’s Right to Choose

To The Editor, Just a short response to Tim Ashe’s “Guest Opinion.” Those who favor abortion sell it in terms of a woman’s right to choose, or her right to make decisions about her own body. Who can be against that? What is missing from this sales pitch is the innocent human life that is terminated by violence usually for selfish reasons. This huma...

“Light out of the Darkness”

To The Editor, As a long time Central Vermont elder who occasionally suffers from the doom and gloom of the current political divisions in our state, nation and world, I like to grab hold of any shards of light that penetrate this darkness.
