Eric L. Davis, Politically Thinking: Passenger rail proposal a long shot

Posted on July 13, 2017 |
By Eric L. Davis



Vermont entrepreneur David Blittersdorf, the CEO of AllEarth Renewables, recently announced that he was expanding his focus from wind energy and solar power to passenger rail transportation. Blittersdorf has founded a new corporation called AllEarth Rail. It has purchased 12 surplus rail cars, and hopes to operate trains between Burlington and Essex Junction, on the one hand, and St. Albans, Montpelier and perhaps Middlebury, on the other.

Laurie Borden, Ways of Seeing: Finding the space lying between

Posted on July 13, 2017 |
By Laurie Borden



We seem to identify individuals on two opposite sides. There is this natural tendency to sort people into one or the other — old/young, boy/girl, Democrat/Republican, heavy/light, haves/have-nots, introvert/extrovert, leader/follower — you get the picture (or you don’t).

Posted on July 13, 2017 |
By Stephen C. Terry



There is no more critical public policy debate now in Vermont than how to create a future that will provide opportunity and prosperity for generations to come.

Young couples wonder almost every day how they can financially manage to live here, (especially in Chittenden County), find affordable rent or buy a home, pay for childcare, pay off student loans, and if there are prospects here for advancement in their careers.

Matt Dickerson: Glacier National Park Diaries 3, Learning about Cutthroat trout

Posted on July 13, 2017 |
By Matt Dickerson



Matt Dickerson col 7 13 17 angler 5874.jpg

My final week at Glacier National Park (GNP) arrives too soon: I still have two presentations to make and several interviews to do.

The first interview will be with United States Geological Survey (USGS) biologist Joe Giersch, who works with rare imperiled stoneflies, such as the small black Meltwater Stonefly that lives in streams just below melting glaciers. Populations can be as dense as 5,000 per square meter.
