Clippings: Looking for the right word? Choose wisely

Posted on June 3, 2015 |
By Evan Johnson



In my summers between college semesters I worked for a construction contractor in Southern Vermont, performing work that didn’t require much skill, so much as basic knowledge of what end of the hammer to hold. I did everything from hanging sheetrock to demolition. I even helped raise an organ factory from the 19th century to build a new foundation under it.

Recent state budgets have been paying costs forward

Homes should be tested for lead

Posted on June 3, 2015 |
By Nancy Skidmore



My second-grade Brownies wanted me to send this letter to the editor:

If you live in an older house and have any paint that is chipped or peeling in any way, please test it for lead. Lead paint can be very dangerous and poison children and animals.

Our Brownie troop discussed several things that need to be addressed and lead paint was found to be the most important. One of the girls was sick when she was younger from lead paint poisoning.
