Editorial: Jones wins; Trump repudiated

Posted on December 14, 2017 |
By Angelo Lynn



 Democrat Doug Jones’ narrow win over Republican Roy Moore to represent Alabama in the U.S. Senate is a huge relief for many Americans. In what is considered the most Republican state in the country, the win by Jones is considered a strong rebuke not only of Moore’s repugnant politics of racism, sexism and bigotry — as well as his alleged sexual molestations of teenage girls when he was younger — but also of President Trump’s politics of division and distraction.

Editorial: State's budget woes made worse by federal tax cuts

Posted on December 11, 2017 |
By Angelo Lynn



As Congressional Republicans eagerly anticipate their proposed massive tax cuts to the nation’s richest 10 percent, Vermont is facing projected revenue shortages for the 11th year in a row. The state recently reported the projected General Fund revenue for the upcoming fiscal year at $1,591 million, which is about $34 million more than the prior year. That represents a growth of about 2 percent across all state government. Expenses are higher, however, creating an expected budget shortfall of about $45 million.

Editorial: Middlebury rail project — The next prudent step is to stop and reconsider

Posted on December 7, 2017 |
By Angelo Lynn



A citizen’s campaign calling for a review of Vermont Agency of Transportation’s proposed $52 million, three-year Middlebury rail project has a straight-forward objection: stop and reassess before pulling the trigger on a project that opponents say is two or three times as expensive as the alternative, and will cause substantial harm to downtown businesses.

It’s a clarion call that has been made before, and which was rejected by the powers that be at the AOT.

What’s different today?

Editorial: A way to trump Trump

Posted on December 7, 2017 |

If you’re sick-to-your-stomach with Trump’s reckless actions that are undermining America’s fight against global warming (not to mention our role in world affairs, the long-term economy, health care, education, immigration, and on and on and on), here’s a positive step you can take to fight back: Share your ideas on what climate policies and solutions Vermont should pursue to meet its clean energy and greenhouse gas reduction goals.

Editorial: Sen. Bray gets to the point on funding lake cleanup

Posted on December 7, 2017 |
By Angelo Lynn



Sen. Chris Bray’s idea to create a per-parcel fee to help pay for the cleanup of Lake Champlain and its related waterways addresses the elephant in the room that others have failed to do: find a way to raise the long-term money needed to accomplish the task.

An advisory council formed to make funding recommendations outlined vague suggestions of what to consider in a funding mechanism, but had dodged the nut of the issue.

Editorial: Dems not the same as GOP!

Posted on December 4, 2017 |
By Angelo Lynn



In the run-up to the 2016 presidential election, a popular lament among voters was that both political parties were equally bad, and that Democrats were not that much different from Republicans. Many voters cast a pox on both parties and Republicans, in particular, rejected 16 other candidates in their primary to pick one of the least experienced, least credible, least informed and most caustic candidates in the nation’s history.

Two years later, much has changed, including a dramatically clearer distinction between the two major political parties.

Editorial: No disrespect in taking a knee

Posted on October 19, 2017 |
By Angelo Lynn



Symbolism can be a powerful force for good — or ill. When San Francisco 49er quarterback Colin Kaepernick first took a knee a year ago to protest police brutality against black Americans, his point was not to disrespect the American flag, but to bring attention to a national crisis that had been largely ignored.

Editorial: Trump and his lemmings

Posted on August 14, 2017 |
By Angelo Lynn



Trump supporters take note: If he tells you to jump off a cliff, don’t do it.

That unsolicited advice comes on the heels of a week in which Trump stepped deep into it three times:

• First, he praised Russian President Vladimir Putin for dismissing 755 of America’s diplomatic staff in Russia with a flippant (and ignorant) comment about thanking him for reducing U.S. payroll and diplomatic expenses.
