Opinion: Term limits, flat tax rate would help correct our course

Posted on January 25, 2016 |
By Edwin C. James



It seems the older I get the more I become concerned with the direction our great nation and country is going. Things don’t seem to be getting done in Washington as they might, though some of the fault may be our own (the voters) due to who we put in office.

MIDDLEBURY — If anyone would have good reason to complain about the impacts of the upcoming replacement of the two downtown Middlebury rail bridges, it’s the Rev. Susan McGarry of the St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church.

McGarry’s church office is literally 15 feet away from the railroad tracks and perhaps another 30 from the deteriorating Merchants Row bridge that will soon be removed along with the span on Main Street.

“My desk shakes sometimes when the train goes by,” McGarry said on Monday.

New Otter Valley district gets new board

Posted on January 21, 2016 |
By Lee J. Kahrs



BRANDON — Voters in all eight Rutland Northeast towns on Tuesday not only approved the proposed school governance unification plans, they also voted for candidates to create one, 13-member Otter Valley Unified Union School Board and a four-member Barstow District Board to oversee the new school districts.

While the number of board representatives a town receives is based on population, there are also four “at-large” board seats weighted equally to the town seats.

Residents in every town voted on each of the board seats.
