Guest editorial: Healthcare providers have reason to be anxious

Posted on June 16, 2014 |
By Emerson Lynn



The most powerful word in the English language is the word no. That is particularly true to people and organizations who consistently depend on the word yes to get things done. When they are told no, they have to change what they do, or stop doing it.

Guest editorial: Make your bed perfectly, and don't ring that bell

Posted on June 8, 2014 |
By Emerson Lynn



You may never look at an unmade bed the same upon reading the commencement address delivered by Naval Adm. William H. McRaven to University of Texas graduates.

It was part of his forced routine 36 years ago when he left college for basic SEAL training in Coronado, Calif. The beds had to be made perfectly. Every morning. The lesson being that even tough guys make their beds and that if you can’t “get the little things right, you will never do the big things right.”

Guest editorial: $3.5 billion tidal wave of confusion coming your way

Posted on April 28, 2014 |
By Emerson Lynn



On Jan. 1, 2017, Vermonters will begin the “transition” away from the property tax to the income tax as a way to pay for our schools. The income sensitivity program that applies to two-thirds of Vermont households will be phased out and the revenue raised for our schools will come from a blend of property tax payments and the income tax.

Shocked?

You’re in good company.

Guest editorial: Consolidation is a first step

Posted on March 17, 2014 |
By Emerson Lynn



If nothing is done, Vermont lawmakers will approve a seven-cent increase in the statewide property tax rate, which would be the largest increase ever imposed to fund our schools.

That’s not likely. The governor has promised the increase would be less. The House Ways and Means Committee has already proposed a plan that would cut the increase to five cents.

Guest editorial: Don't blame school boards for taxes

Posted on February 10, 2014 |
By Emerson Lynn



If you are a member of a school board, the chances are fair that you would like a moment or two of Gov. Peter Shumlin’s time, just enough to have him understand you don’t spend countless hours tweaking the numbers just to devise a budget that is beyond the taxpayers’ ability to pay.

As if you don’t have enough to do…

Guest editorial: Legislators should consider options on day care bill

Posted on February 3, 2014 |
By Emerson Lynn



As Vermont has witnessed with campaign finance reform and Entergy, it’s costly to pursue things legislatively that might not meet judicial muster. The Legislature may be on that same questionable path once again with the proposal to unionize the state’s childcare providers.

Guest editorial: Make schools more affordable? Wrong question.

Posted on January 30, 2014 |
By Emerson Lynn



How Vermonters pay for their schools will be one of those issues that bubbles along the top of this year’s legislative session, catching a burst of attention here and there, ultimately signifying very little.

Guest editorial: Tobacco funds misused; Vt. missed an opportunity

Posted on January 16, 2014 |
By Emerson Lynn



For a quarter century, beginning in 1998, Vermont has been the recipient of a $962 million “gift” it had no reason to expect. It was a gift that had the potential to change the health care culture of Vermont, to perhaps orient it more toward a culture of health, not sickness.

But it has not been properly used, and its misuse continues.

Guest editorial: Questions on single-payer

Posted on January 13, 2014 |
By Emerson Lynn



Gov. Peter Shumlin recently took the unusual step of addressing both the Senate and house health care committees to talk about Vermont Health Connect and how the state needs to prepare itself for Green Mountain Care, the state’s single-payer health care plan.

He made the trip because the issue dominates all others. How it is managed will affect the careers of many of those who spend their time under the dome in Montpelier.

It’s time to pay attention.

Guest editorial: Let Putin share the burden

Posted on September 19, 2013 |
By Emerson Lynn



Egos are wonderful things in presidential beings. And the bigger they are, the more important it is that they continue to expand and that everyone knows from whence their divine gift flows. That, in part, is the personal ballast behind Russian President Vladimir Putin’s letter to the American people published in Thursday’s New York Times.
