Clippings: A double shot of pride for parents

Posted on June 11, 2015 |
By John Flowers



We buried my father more than two decades ago, and my memories of him are sadly growing more faint by the year. But I will always remember the emphasis he placed on getting a college degree — not only as a ticket to better employment, but also as a means by which to grow intellectually and socially before setting out into the world.

Gregory Dennis: The human factor in Vermont politics

Posted on June 11, 2015 |
By Gregory Dennis



It’s easy to watch political figures on television or read about them in the paper and forget one thing.

Those are human beings up there.

It may seem that those who live and breathe politics are thick-skinned creatures programmed to the point of being semi-robots. Different from you and me.

They look completely consumed by the process. Everything is a calculation, and every move dissected under the microscope.

But the people at the podiums also bring every emotion to the table.

Eric Davis: Shumlin's decision creates intrigue

Posted on June 11, 2015 |
By Eric Davis



Gov. Peter Shumlin’s announcement that he will not be a candidate for re-election in 2016 was surprising not so much in its substance, but in its timing. Governors Dean and Douglas announced their decisions not to run again in August or September of the year preceding the election, rather than 18 months before the end of their terms.

Guest editorial: No easy solution for Iraq but more boots on the ground is not the anwer

Posted on June 10, 2015 |
By Haviland Smith



Much of northwestern Iraq is now under ISIS control. Shia Iraq is losing its war with Sunni ISIS. Hawkish American conservatives and neocons demand that we re-invade that country and solve its problems. Others less bellicose tell us that we must increase our military presence there to the tune of about 1,000 troops, concentrating on advising the Iraqis on how to beat ISIS. Moderates generally are not eager to see any U.S. military involvement in the region, preferring to let the antagonists work out their own problems.

Pipeline permit should be pulled

Posted on June 10, 2015 |
By Ivor Hughes



Back in 2011 Vermont Gas Systems was given the go-ahead for a System Expansion and Reliability Fund to start extracting $4.4 million per year from its current customers in Chittenden and Franklin counties. This was purportedly to fund a $60-$70 million gas pipeline extension from Shelburne to Vergennes and then on to Middlebury (PSB Docket 7712). Seemingly a most generous gift by current ratepayers to its southern neighbors, it’s doubtful that many of them were then, or are even now, aware of the extra tariff tacked on to their monthly bill.

Local newspaper will be missed by faithful reader

Posted on June 10, 2015 |
By Anne Knowles



Dear Addison Independent,

Before I leave for a new job and home in Orono, Maine, I want to thank you for representing the Addison County community so well. Yours is the first local paper I have ever read closely and looked forward to getting in the mail.

I will miss the Addy Indy, along with the beautiful Champlain Valley, close friends, seeing my daughter grow up with caring teachers and classmates, and the many joys of teaching at Middlebury College.
