Jessie Raymond: Better living through procrastination

Posted on March 26, 2014 |
By Jessie Raymond



April 15 is just around the corner, and you know what that means: Time to hone your finest procrastination techniques.

Hey, it’s no coincidence that spring cleaning coincides with tax season. You start thinking about capital gains, non-qualified deductions, thresholds and exclusions, and what do you say to yourself? “Wow, when is the last time I washed and ironed all the curtains? I can’t possibly deal with my offshore exempt dividends until I’ve taken care of those.”

Community forum: Trying to read shooter's clues by Officer Christopher Mason

Posted on March 26, 2014 |
By Officer Christopher Mason of the Middlebury Police Department



Officer Mason commty forum pic_0004.jpg

In October 2012 I was involved in an incident in Middlebury that led to the fatal shooting of a man by law enforcement officers. The man committed what has become known as “suicide by cop.” This involves provoking the police into a lethal response, either directly, as in the Middlebury case, by shooting at the responding officers, or indirectly by threatening or attacking the public. This phenomenon has become so prevalent that appropriate tactical responses are taught in the Vermont Police Academy.

By Peter Burrows



Burrows, Peter 2013 CMYK.jpg

One of the most promising aspects of Vermont’s political and educational landscape is the belief in community and civic engagement. For those coming to this state from elsewhere, it is a powerful realization to see such ardent participation in the health of our communities. It’s refreshing to see the public go beyond recrimination to take action and be part of finding solutions.

Editorial: Shumlin's bold vision shadows a weakness amid lofty goals

Posted on March 26, 2014 |
By Angelo Lynn



Gov. Peter Shumlin’s strength, as witnessed by his Monday visit to Middlebury to speak at a legislative luncheon, is the mile-high clarity through which he sees political challenges.

A corresponding weakness is that he too quickly dismisses the swamps that lie in the weeds of detail between his lofty goals. It’s a trait that transcends issues, from the natural gas pipeline, to health care reform and school governance.
