There is a case for saying that rules are rules and fines must be paid. But the worst strategy is to keep indicating that an amnesty may come soon without ever introducing it. And this is roughly where we are in our corporate tax debate.

Work to begin on VUHS roof, board to seek more upgrades

Posted on August 8, 2013 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — Work should begin next week on a $600,000 project that Vergennes Union High School officials said is critical to the building’s integrity: New roofing and insulation on its classroom wing and auditorium.
