Letter to the editor: Vermont's gun safety law will not achieve its purpose

Posted on April 12, 2018 |
By Tonya Lawyer



The unfortunate passage of S-55 and soon to be signed by Gov. Scott is nothing more than a feel good law. This will please the liberals who think that this law will change/reduce gun violence in this State and Country. Fortunately for Vermont, although we have some gun violence, we are by far very low on the scale compared to many States. Many of those states, such as Illinois, New York, and Massachusetts have some of the strictest gun laws but have the highest homicide and gun violence rates. So clearly the laws are not working.

NEW HAVEN — One of the most talented athletes in Mount Abraham Union High School history found her calling, she said, because she lacks an athletic skill.

Mount Abe senior Lydia Pitts recalled as a 7th-grader at the Bristol high school she wanted to play a spring sport. Softball, girls’ lacrosse, and track and field were offered.

Pitts, a New Haven resident, chose track and field. Why?

Letter to the editor: Mr. Lynn, Legislature miss the boat on agriculture

Posted on April 12, 2018 |
By James Maroney



In Thomas Jefferson’s day, America’s — and by extension, Vermont’s  — preeminent occupation was agriculture. But in the 1820’s, the opening of the Erie Canal, which would provide a far more efficient link between western farms and eastern markets, adumbrated the future prospects of food production in the relatively inhospitable soil and climate of Vermont.

Letter to the editor: Trump ignoring threat from China

Posted on April 12, 2018 |
By Peter Grant



Trump has met his match and doesn’t know it, Xi Jinping, the smiling leader of China. This man is absolute ruler of China and he is extending his authority over many parts of the world by smiling and promising to work together for a better world. He is also building roads and helping build these countries. Like Tibet, once in control of a country it becomes part of China and the people there are no longer independent, but under the iron rule of Xi and China. Instead of being wary of China, Trump is all on edge over North Korea. While Trump sleeps, China increases its power.

Editorial: Governor Scott is spot on

Posted on April 12, 2018 |
By Angelo Lynn



As Gov. Phil Scott courageously held a very public signing of three gun control measures that increase oversight and inspection but only modestly restrict gun access, gun right hecklers called him “traitor” and booed at the mention of his administration also allocating $5 million for school safety.

Scott turned on those hecklers, confronting them directly: “If you want to boo on that, go ahead and boo.”

Editorial: China rises as Trump falls

Posted on April 12, 2018 |
By Angelo Lynn



Will Trump fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller? Can he? Or will Trump fire Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein so his successor can fire Mueller, as Rosenstein, a Republican appointed by Trump, has said he wouldn’t fire Mueller, another Republican, even if his boss, Trump, asked him. Would the obsequious Attorney General Jeff Sessions be allowed to stay? More importantly, will Robert Cohen, Trump’s fixer and one of his personal attorneys, take the fall for his boss or will he squeal in exchange for leniency?

Karl Lindholm: San Antonio and all that hoopla!

Posted on April 12, 2018 |
By Karl Lindholm



Karl Linholm 4 amigos 2.jpg

It was a giant basketball party, a fiesta de hoop: just so much hoopla in San Antonio the weekend before last — March Madness, the Final Four:

And we were there.

This was the second trip to the Final Four for the four of us, a reprise of an Atlanta adventure in 2013 when we witnessed Louisville defeat Michigan in the national championship game in a cavernous football stadium, the Georgia Dome, along with 70,000 of our closest friends.

Pitts possesses long, diverse résumé

Posted on April 12, 2018 |
By Addison Independent



NEW HAVEN — Over the past three-and-a-half years Mount Abraham Union High School senior Lydia Pitts has established herself as one of the most accomplished athletes in the school’s history.
