Letter to the Editor,
02:43PM / Monday, August 20, 2018

To the Editor:

The district attorney race in our community is significant. Many have dedicated their life work preventing or making efforts to eradicate injustices in our criminal justice system.

We cannot be fully evolved human beings until we care about human rights and basic dignity. That all of our survival is tied to the survival of everyone. That our visions of technology and design and entertainment and creativity have to be married with visions of humanity, compassion, and justice." He has dedicated his life

Owner Wojciech Rum has been wanting to bring Polish cuisine to the area for some time.   STAMFORD, Vt. — Longtime resident Wojciech Rum had enough of traveling great distances to get the quality cuisine of his homeland, so he brought a little slice of Poland to Stamford.   "I have been living here for some time and there are not many Polish food establishments here…I felt that we could open something here," Rum said.

Now in its sixth year, the academy offers five days on campus meeting professors and likely classmates and trying out the labs in the new Feigenbaum Center

Daughter's Book Celebrates Legacy of Leonard Bernstein
By Stephen Dankner, Guest Column
12:00PM / Friday, August 17, 2018

It's hard to imagine the classical music world without Leonard Bernstein. His death, 28 years ago, left a void that will be very difficult, if not impossible, to fill. Yes, there are young, stellar conductors now on the scene who hold great promise – Ken-David Masur in Boston and the fiery Gustavo Dudamel in Los Angeles. Time will tell if they, or others, possess the potential of the mature Bernstein, who was blessed with unparalleled musical and communicative gifts as conductor, composer, pianist and mentor/lecturer - classical music’s, and America’s, emissary to the world.

There were three great composers who created and thus changed the course of early-to mid-20th
