Clippings by John McCright: GPS will help us find a better way

Posted on February 6, 2014 |
By John S. McCright



Last year Addison Independent columnist Eric Davis mentioned in a piece that one way the state could raise money to fund badly needed road and bridge repairs would be to put a GPS device in every car in Vermont and then charge a tax based on the actual number of miles driven each year. It is such an elegant and fair solution — the people who wear out the roads pay to replace them. What could be more fair?

Eric Davis: Unemployment stats misleading

Posted on February 6, 2014 |
By Eric Davis



In last week’s State of the Union speech, President Obama took credit for “the lowest unemployment rate in over five years.” On the surface this claim is correct. By the Labor Department’s commonly used measure, 6.7 percent of Americans were unemployed in December 2013, the lowest since October 2008.

Many economists have analyzed data on employment and unemployment over time. This work shows that, for many Americans, the job market is still far from full recovery mode.

Opinion: Town office is 'a great idea'

Posted on February 6, 2014 |
By Jim Larrabee



I can’t remain silent any longer. The selectboard’s proposed municipal building project in partnership with Middlebury College is a great deal, and I plan to support it with my vote. Is the proposed project perfect? No. However if we wait for perfection, I fear we will wait forever.

I would also like to publicly thank Victor Nuovo for all his years of service to the town of Middlebury. We all benefited from his wisdom and leadership.

Jim Larrabee, Middlebury

Outdoor column by Matt Dickerson: Nostalgia and the power of fishing

Posted on February 6, 2014 |
By Matt Dickerson



I’ve recently been digging up old outdoor memories.

Some of it has to do with this pathetic winter. Pathetic in the amount of snow, that is. We’ve done fine with cold. Well enough with the cold, in fact, that news media are acting like it’s the coldest winter since Vermont was buried under a mile of glacier. Well enough that my wood supply is looking frighteningly low. Well enough that people are proclaiming an end to global warming, apparently forgetting that it was only two decades ago that sub-zero temperatures were routine in Vermont winters.

Guest editorial: Vermont is a greenhouse for entrepreneurial businesses

Posted on February 6, 2014 |
By Lisa Gosselin



“I’d love to move to Vermont and start a company here,” the snowboarder said with a sigh as we shared a chairlift at Stowe. I sighed too: If I had a dollar for every time I heard that, my mortgage would be paid.

That was nine years ago. Chris Kaiser, the snowboarder, went on to found Vermont Peanut Butter and this Feb. 6, he will join a panel discussion at the Capitol Plaza in Montpelier to celebrate Vermont Entrepreneurship Week.
