Editorial: Giving up on 'best' solution?

When is it too late to sound the alarm? That question comes to mind with Middlebury resident Ben Wilson’s community forum concerning the rail bridges project in downtown Middlebury. He advocates scrapping the state’s $52 million plan, painstakingly assembled over the past three years, in favor of an easterly rail bypass.

Editorial: How easily we are deceived

Posted on April 13, 2017 |

A week ago, Trump deflected the political dialogue from his administration’s shady connections to Russia’s meddling in the U.S. elections (and a too cozy relationship Russian President Vladimir Putin) by dropping a few bombs in Syria. While the tactic violated everything Trump had said on the campaign trail that he would not do, and was against the very actions he warned President Obama not to take, it worked. At least, temporarily.

Editorial: GOP faces risks if Supreme Court swings too far right

Posted on April 10, 2017 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



Swinging the Supreme Court to a conservative majority is an honor that solely belongs to Sen. Majority Mitch McConnell. He is the man who led the Republican charge to deny Judge Merrick Garland, a moderate judge based on his past jurisprudence. President Barrack Obama nominated Garland because he reflected mainstream views — not liberal or radical, not ultra conservative, but views the vast majority of Americans could embrace — even most Republicans.

Editorial: ACSD’s 6th-grade query poses challenges, potential rewards

Posted on April 6, 2017 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



The Addison Central School District recently posed an interesting question and challenge to its seven district towns: What did those schools and communities think about moving sixth grade students out of their respective elementary schools and into the Middlebury Union Middle School? The proposal would create a larger middle school of three grades — sixth, seventh and eighth — but would diminish the number of students attending each elementary school.

Editorial: Playing chicken, Trump caves

Congressional Republicans called Trump’s bluff Friday and guess who backed down? Trump did, with his tail between his legs. Trump had tried to make it a game of ‘chicken,’ carelessly threatening Republican opponents last Thursday that if they didn’t pass TrumpCare he would “come and get them,” but it was Trump who chickened out before the bill was voted down.

Editorial: A $10 million price tag, and Trump+ICE = bad policy

Two local stories stand out in today’s Addison Independent: a shocking $10 million price tag for upgrading the Ilsley Library in Middlebury, and, more importantly, a look at how the threat of deportation of migrant workers could impact the state’s and county’s dairy economy.

Editorial: Health care primer 101

Posted on March 23, 2017 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



As Republicans hope to end ObamaCare and begin the launch of TrumpCare, here’s a basic primer that explains one over-arching problem Republicans face: As crafted, the GOP plan does two things that have Republicans up for re-election in 2018 and 2020 running for cover: it could make roughly 24 million Americans now on Obamacare either lose their insurance or see the premiums increase so much they wouldn’t be able to afford coverage; and premiums for older and sicker Americans will skyrocket.

Editorial: TrumpCare's big sin

Posted on March 20, 2017 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



By now, the biggest sin of the GOP health care bill is well known: it’s a tax cut bill masquerading as a health care plan. Simply put, it takes health care away from lower-income and middle-income Americans who need it most, and it cuts taxes on the rich and super-rich by $600 billion.
