Politically Thinking: Lawmakers earn a B+ for 2012

Posted on May 10, 2012 |
By Eric L. Davis



How should the 2012 session of the Legislature be assessed? I would give the lawmakers a B+ grade: above-average performance, but with room for improvement on some issues and more work to be done on others.

Between the Lines: A Vergennes jail and freedom of speech

Posted on May 10, 2012 |
By Gregory Dennis



The jail in Vergennes where Congressman Matthew Lyon was imprisoned is long gone. But his legend lives on, in part thanks to another former congressman and current U.S. senator, Bernie Sanders.

By Angelo S. Lynn



The governor’s take on the session was enthusiastic optimism — as expected. And much of it is deserved.

Considering the damage to roads and bridges and the loss of business caused by Tropical Storm Irene last Aug. 28, and the tepid economy on top of a winter that starved ski resorts of predictable snow, it’s a wonder state residents weren’t asked to increase taxes to rebuild what was lost and replenish drained coffers.

Trout 2012, one month in

Posted on May 10, 2012 |
By Matt Dickerson



We are now one month into the 2012 open season for trout. I confess a little trepidation as the season began, wondering what would be the impact of Tropical Storm Irene on our local waters. And what would be the impact of our dry winter?

The second of these questions is working itself out nicely. The season started with the lowest, warmest water, and some of the best mayfly hatches I’ve ever seen in the first three weeks of the season.

Museum will tell story of city's key role in War of 1812

Posted on May 7, 2012 |
By John Flowers



artcohn4276.jpg

VERGENNES — It’s known as the “Little City.” But Vergennes, unbeknownst to many, played a huge role two centuries ago in a major U.S. Navy victory that protected the Champlain Valley from British invasion and helped end the War of 1812.

The story is succinctly acknowledged on a plaque adorning a stately, stone-pillared monument standing in the city park.
