Eric L. Davis: Gov. Scott's vision must become a budget

Posted on January 12, 2017 |
By Eric L. Davis



Gov. Phil Scott used his inaugural address last Thursday to sketch out broad themes on which he hopes to concentrate over the next two years. Detailed policy proposals to flesh out these ideas will come later, particularly in the governor’s budget address.

Letter to the editor: Water outage was no one's fault

Posted on January 12, 2017 |
By Julie Ortuno



Dear Editor, I would like to address the recent articles regarding the Tri Town Water Outage. In your article you seemed to place some blame on the Shoreham Fire Department for “draining” the reserve tank. That particular tank holds approximately 750,000 gallons of water. The Shoreham Fire Department took out 9,000 gallons to help fight the Fire in Orwell. Do the math. What happened was a crazy sequence of events that caused a perfect storm for Tri Town Water. There is nothing anyone did wrong.

Letter to the editor: Constitutionalism can save nation

Posted on January 12, 2017 |
By Victor Nuovo



For many Americans, perhaps even a majority of them, the great challenge of the next four years is to survive the presidency of Donald Trump, not as individuals — for that we need only take to the hills, which would be selfish and unworthy of us as citizens — but together as a nation. I believe that there is a way to accomplish this, not a certain way, but as sure as any can be in an uncertain universe and, all things considered, the best and noblest of ways, for it follows the path of civic virtue. We can become constitutionalists.

Letter to the editor: Foxcraft to end harvest program

Posted on January 12, 2017 |
By Anne Young



To our Friends in our community,

We are writing this letter because we are so very thankful for your support of our program and it is with a heavy heart that we need to share some news. After 17 years of providing services to our local children and youth, Foxcroft Farm Harvest Program Inc. has made a decision to discontinue the current services and dissolve the nonprofit by the end of June 2017. It has not been an easy decision, or one that has been influenced by a lack of support or funding. It is more of a personal decision, supported by the board.

Letter to the editor: Solar farms as bad as billboards

Posted on January 12, 2017 |
By Ethan Sausville



I am writing in response to the article recently posted on solar fields. I have seen solar fields popping up all over Vermont. We as Vermonters have always valued the beauty Vermont has. We passed laws to preserve the beauty of Vermont by outlawing billboards along our roadways. I feel solar fields are just as bad as billboards, they stick out like a sore thumb.
