Editorial: Another plug for a carbon tax

Posted on April 1, 2013 |
By Angelo Lynn



Here’s another reason a tax on carbon dioxide emissions (a carbon tax) makes good economic sense: According to a study done for the International Monetary Fund, governments throughout the world are subsizing cheap energy to the detriment of the world economy (not just the environment) to the tune of $2 trillion in 2011.

Ways of Seeing: Holding a piece of history is a thrill

By By Rebecca Kneale Gould



One of Middlebury College’s best-kept secrets is its fabulous archive in the Special Collections rooms of the library. And one of the best-kept secrets in Special Collections is a copy of Henry David Thoreau’s Walden that Thoreau himself owned and used. Although his emendations are relatively few, they show us the Writer in Action, combing through his own work with care. Depending on what you count, there are about 18 adjustments that Thoreau makes to this edition, all of which appear in the multiple later editions of Walden that grace my bookshelves.

Weatherization bill faces hurdles, funding still up in the air

Posted on March 28, 2013 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — The Vermont House has moved along a bill that promotes the weatherization of citizens’ homes, but it remains unclear whether lawmakers will be able to assemble the necessary funding to help pay for the initiative.

The House last week voted 109-27 in favor of sending bill H.520 along to the Senate. That bill sets the state on a path to weatherize 80,000 Vermont homes by the year 2020, acknowledging that many abodes are porous and are losing costly heating resources to the outdoors.

City Council eyes $1.45 million bond for new city police HQ

VERGENNES — Vergennes aldermen moved close on Tuesday to setting a May vote on a $1.45 million bond to pay for a 4,611-square-foot North Main Street police station.

That plan would remove more than 1,300 square feet — a drive-in evidence processing area, offices for the force’s sergeant and detective, and fitness and intake/dispatch rooms — from the proposed $1.85 million, 5,940-square-foot station that Vergennes voters defeated on Town Meeting Day, 302-292. It would remain on the same site.

VERGENNES — The residents of the John Graham Emergency Shelter in Vergennes know what it’s like to be without a home.

Maybe that’s why it didn’t take long for the shelter’s newly formed women’s group to zero in on the men and women who are serving in the military far away from their homes as the subject for a community service project.
