Candidates on the Issues: Michael Fisher, Addison 4

STATE BUDGET: Anyone who builds and lives by a budget on the family, community or state level knows that we continue to be in tough economic times. We cannot and will not spend more than we have. Having said that, we must be smart about how we downsize state government. We must not make cuts that will only push costs to the local level or only lead to much higher expenses in the short term.

Candidates on the Issues: Willem Jewett, Addison 2

STATE BUDGET: Regrettably this is not a new problem. Over the past three fiscal years we have successfully mopped up $753 million in red ink spilled as a result of the great recession. We’ve made program adjustments and we’ve cut budgets but we have also stood by Vermonters in a time of great need.

STATE BUDGET: I do not see how we can cut any programs, especially social service programs that are especially needed now. The best approach would be to reduce bureaucratic inflation, that means personnel, especially at the top level where some positions seem more to serve political rather then the public interest. I would favor modest increases in income taxes for those who can afford to pay them. To say more would be to require a crystal ball.

ADDISON, Vt./CROWN POINT, N.Y. — At 1 p.m. this Saturday afternoon, two ferries on Lake Champlain will sound their horns for a crowd of people gathered at the Crown Point Historical Site.

The horn blasts will mark the one-year anniversary of the emergency closure of the Champlain Bridge, an event that plunged area businesses into months of struggle and wreaked havoc for the hundreds of people who daily commute across the lake.

Swept away: Couple weds at 10 on 10/10/10

EAST MIDDLEBURY — An ideal pairing of partners is often referred to as a “match made in heaven.”

Jaclynne Reed and Frank Wootten can truly lay claim to that maxim in light of an airborne exchange of vows this past Sunday, in a celestial ceremony that was also heavily steeped in numerology. The couple has the interesting distinction of having been married on the 10th day of the 10th month in the 10th year of this century at 10 a.m. at 10,000 feet.

Neither bride nor groom is likely to forget her or his anniversary date anytime soon.

Salmon tries to 'shine light' on Vt. finances

By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — Calculators, pens, pencils and computers are common tools of the trade among auditors.

Vermont State Auditor Thomas Salmon said he uses an extra, figurative tool in his arsenal: A spotlight.

“You’ve got to have a guy like me that wants to facilitate turning the lights on,” Salmon, who is running for re-election this Nov. 2, said during a Monday interview at the Addison Independent.

The 47-year-old Republican from St. Johnsbury faces opposition from Doug Hoffer of Burlington, who defeated former state Auditor Ed Flanagan in a Democratic primary contest in August.
