Clippings by John McCright: Government savants know it all

Posted on October 1, 2015 |
By John S. McCright



Doom and gloom, that’s all we hear about from the government. Hackers breaking into federal databases to steal mountains of information on common Americans, bureaucrats injudiciously spending tax money on poorly thought out projects, lawmakers arguing over the stupidest things while roads crumble, children missing much-needed medical care and so-called regulators letting Wall Street crooks drain our retirement accounts with impunity.

Eric Davis: Progressives must weigh their votes carefully

Posted on October 1, 2015 |
By Eric Davis



Emma Mulvaney-Stanak, the chair of the Vermont Progressive Party, has said the Progressives will likely run a candidate for governor in 2016, after having sat out the gubernatorial campaigns in 2010, 2012 and 2014. Mulvaney-Stanak said that Progressive Party activists do not trust that a Democratic governor would be a strong advocate for their policy positions.

Opinion: Insurance hikes give jolt to school budgets

Posted on October 1, 2015 |
By Laurie Childers



I received the following notice last week in my Addison Northwest Supervisory Union email account: “VEHI (a nonprofit org that provides health insurance benefits to school employees) files 7.9% Contribution Health Rate Renewal with Dept. of Financial Regulation” — 7.9 percent!

Act 46 enacted during the 2015 legislative session is requiring school districts to unify and cap their annual school budget increases to 2 percent or taxpayers will be penalized and have to collect $2 for every $1 over the cap. That is a hefty penalty.

Gregory Dennis: On a summer's high peaks quest, Middleburry woman climbs 46 peaks

Posted on October 1, 2015 |
By Gregory Dennis



Greg Dennis column color n Amy Sheldon on Skylight-03.jpg

Amy Sheldon wasn’t actually lost — she pretty much knew where she was in the High Peaks region of the Adirondacks — but she felt lost. And alone.

In the dead center of the Adirondack wilderness and hiking by herself, she was headed up Cliff Mountain.

One source refers to Cliff as “the great Adirondack vertical swamp.” And as she started the climb on this cool, rainy day, Sheldon faced a trail with a lot of treacherously slippery rock.

Opinion: Views shaped by survival ethic

Posted on October 1, 2015 |
By Sean Parkyn



It is easy to think that with all the violence in the news today that the destructive side of human nature is getting worse. But a look at history will show that in fact our capacity for violence is not getting worse, but has stayed very much the same. Our potential for barbarity has existed alongside our potential for culture from ancient times up to the present day.

MIDDLEBURY — The Middlebury Union High School boys’ soccer team erupted for a season-high number of goals on a rainy Tuesday, and ultimately needed almost all of them to earn a 5-3 victory over visiting Vergennes.

The Tigers struck early, scoring on their first shot, and built a 5-1 lead with 10:07 to go on Joao Pedro Ribeiro’s second goal of the game.

The Commodores answered with two goals in less than a minute, the second coming from senior midfielder Aaron Gaines at 6:47 before the rally fizzled.
