Editorial: The travesty of GOP politics

Posted on December 7, 2015 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



In the wake of last Wednesday’s mass shooting in San Bernadino, Calif., in which a husband and wife used semi-automatic assault weapons to kill 14 people and wound 20, you might think Congress could pass legislation to expand background checks, limit the sale of military-style assault weapons and ban the sale of weapons to people on the FBI’s terrorist watch list.

Community forum: Make common sense, responsible gun laws

Posted on December 7, 2015 |
By Sue Minter



This week’s writer is Sue Minter, the former Vermont Secretary of Transportation and a Democratic candidate for governor.

Three dead and nine wounded at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs. Fourteen dead and more than 20 wounded in San Bernardino, Calif. In less than one week.

Gun violence is a crisis in our country. It’s happening in our schools, our movie theaters, our workplaces, our community health centers, our places of worship. It is just common sense that we need to do something.

Opinion: Resistance to renewable energy is delaying inevitable

Posted on December 7, 2015 |
By Taborri Bruhl



For the last few years I have been carefully following the debate about Vermont’s solar and wind development. There have been many valid points brought up by both advocates and opponents, and there seems to be a consensus opinion forming that revolves around a middle ground of sorts. Most Vermonters do agree that we need to transition toward a renewable-energy economy, but also that commonsense guidelines should be developed with regard to the approval and siting of wind turbines, solar arrays and their distribution networks.

Opinion: Unreasonable gun laws threaten American Freedom

Posted on December 7, 2015 |
By Harry Chaucer
