Editorial: The preferred route for the VGS pipeline

Posted on April 29, 2013 |
By Angelo Lynn



If Vermont Gas Systems (VGS) wants to built a pipeline from Middlebury to the International Paper mill in Ticonderoga, N.Y., it must concede two points: 1) the public good of such a route is not a slam dunk and, if push comes to shove, VGS will likely face a legal challenge; 2) the economic benefits of partnering with the towns they want to go through will almost certainly outweigh the negative consequences of waging battle against them.

Editorial: 'It's good to respect the land'

Posted on April 29, 2013 |
By Angelo Lynn



Marci Hayes couldn’t have summed up the meaning of Green Up Day better: “I’m motivated by the idea of taking care of the environment where you live. It’s good practice to respect the land. And it looks better after.”

Editorial: Embracing the big idea in education

Posted on April 22, 2013 |
By Angelo Lynn



News that area middle schools and high schools are facing a student decline of 9-26 percent over the next five years is shocking, but it is not new. Most schools throughout Addison County saw the reduction in their elementary schools many years ago and the changing demographics are just working their way through the educational system.

Two questions rise to the fore: 1) what can be done to reverse declining student populations, and 2) how can our schools adapt to fewer students and still maintain a diverse curriculum that pushes students to excel?

Editorial: A goal for shorelands bill: Do no harm

Posted on April 18, 2013 |
By Angelo Lynn



If the Senate, as expected, tables further discussion on H.526, a bill written to protect the state’s shorelands and help improve the clarity of lake water, two outcomes are certain: 1) better explanation of the legislation will temper the animosity that has riled so many lakeshore property owners, and 2) the legislation will undoubtedly undergo further modifications to prevent overkill and to hone in on what it hopes to accomplish.

Editorial: Is decriminalization of marijuana no big deal?

Posted on April 15, 2013 |
By Angelo Lynn



The House’s vote on Friday to decriminalize possession of an ounce or less of marijuana makes sense for three over-arching reasons: 1) the current penalty under existing law is excessive and has life-long repercussions that are unreasonable; 2) the current law is not prosecuted consistently throughout the state; and 3) in the proposed bill it’s still an illegal drug.

Editorial: Shorelands development bill: A problem of scale

Posted on April 11, 2013 |
By Angelo Lynn



One of the problems with H.526 is of scale. The focus and intent is clearly aimed at cleaning up the vast waters of Lake Champlain, which receives the drainage of thousands of acres of farmland, residential lawns and vast urban development. But when this same legislation is applied to tiny Sunset Lake in Orwell or the long-developed shores of Lake Dunmore, or many other similar lakes in Vermont, the legislation’s intent could well miss the mark and cause more injury than good.

Editorial: Vermont Gas needs to learn from past bobbles

Posted on April 4, 2013 |
By Angelo Lynn



If Vermont Gas has learned anything from Phase I of its proposed natural gas pipeline from Colchester to Middlebury, it should have been that it’s worthwhile to do things right the first time through. In practical terms that means slowing down, making sure the public is thoroughly involved and on board as much as possible, and putting the landowners whose properties are being considered for the pipeline first and foremost in their priorities.

Editorial: Colorado first of a trend on gun control?

Posted on April 1, 2013 |
By Angelo Lynn



In a sign of what the nation might hope is the start of a continuing trend, Colorado became the first Western state to adopt tougher gun control laws with the recent signing of legislation.

The measure, which is similar to what Vermont legislators were asked to consider but decided not to tackle this year, bans magazines for automatic assault-style weapons that hold more than 15 rounds and requires background checks made online or through private parties (like gun shows).

Editorial: Another plug for a carbon tax

Posted on April 1, 2013 |
By Angelo Lynn



Here’s another reason a tax on carbon dioxide emissions (a carbon tax) makes good economic sense: According to a study done for the International Monetary Fund, governments throughout the world are subsizing cheap energy to the detriment of the world economy (not just the environment) to the tune of $2 trillion in 2011.
