Guest editorial: Social Security fix needed now

Posted on April 12, 2010 |
By Emerson K. Lynn



Social Security starts its downward slide this year. Because of the recession and 10 percent unemployment, payroll tax receipts will fall below pensions paid out for the first time.

Today’s retirees need not worry. The imbalance will not affect the program until 2037, or thereabouts. Because income has exceeded expenses for decades, the Social Security trust fund has a balance of about $2.5 trillion invested in Treasury bills. The interest on those notes added to payroll tax receipts will keep pension checks flowing for a few years.

VUHS student nets afterschool video award

Posted on April 12, 2010 |
By Andrea Suozzo

VERGENNES — Of the three people who learned that a video on the Vergennes After School bicycle maintenance class had won a statewide award on March 25, Robert Burbo betrayed the least emotion — which was strange, considering that he had made the video.

But this is how the soft-spoken Vergennes Union High School sophomore approaches most things, whether it is helping to set up a computer network for the middle school or deciding where to make a cut on a video he has filmed. Learning that he had won $1,000 and six Flip video cameras for the afterschool program was no different.

Wasps sting a young Middlebury team, 8-2

MIDDLEBURY — In a Saturday game between the two boys’ lacrosse programs that between them won every state championship between 1993 and 2003, visiting Woodstock posted what has been a rare win in recent years over Middlebury, 8-2, at Middlebury College’s Alumni Stadium.

Play bore little resemblance to some of the duels of a decade ago between the Tigers and Wasps — balls hit the ground or rolled out of bounds far more often than planned as turnovers plagued both teams.

Plato part 5: Love forms foundation for rule of law

Posted on April 8, 2010 |
By Victor Nuovo



5. All you need is love

Editor’s note: This is the fifth in a series of essays about politics and the moral life. The essays develop themes from a work by the philosopher Plato, entitled “Laws,” which he wrote shortly before his death in 347 BCE. “Laws” is written as a dialogue involving three old men with long experience in politics: Cleinias, from the Cretan city of Cnossos; Megillus, from Sparta; and an Athenian stranger who is not named, but who may be Plato himself. This essay follows Plato’s digression into the “Symposium.”

SHOREHAM — Newton Academy, the state’s oldest standing secondary school building and the focus of a major renovation effort by the town of Shoreham, was destroyed by a fire early Wednesday morning.

Dairies hunker down for more low prices

Posted on April 8, 2010 |
By Kathryn Flagg



ADDISON COUNTY — Vermont dairy farmers slogged through the worst milk prices they’d seen in decades for much of 2009, struggling to stay in business as they sold their milk at prices so low they could not cover the cost of production.

Now, milk price forecasts suggest that 2010 isn’t shaping up to be much better for dairymen, many of whom went into debt to the tune of $800 to $1,000 per cow last year in order to continue farming.

VERGENNES — Becky, 23, thought she was on a path to matrimony and a nurturing household for her two children.

But the longtime Addison County resident’s life took an abrupt turn last month with a sudden breakup that left her homeless. Faced with no other options, Becky sought help at the John W. Graham Emergency Shelter in Vergennes.

“I had nowhere else to go,” Becky said.

Demand never higher for Middlebury College

Posted on April 8, 2010 |
By Andrea Suozzo

MIDDLEBURY — The economy may be bad, but Middlebury College is having no trouble attracting students eager for a liberal arts education.

In fact, according to Dean of Admissions Bob Clagett, this year the admissions office at the college handled 7,978 first-year applications, which is both an increase of 16 percent over last year and the largest applicant pool ever. The larger volume of applicants also meant that admissions officers saw more students with very high extracurricular and academic standings.

“It made for a very challenging year for us,” said Clagett.
