Posted on March 3, 2016 |
By Rep. Scott Beck



Four shoppers needing a new sedan walk onto a car lot and are greeted by a salesperson who quickly sizes up their wallets — one is poor, one has limited means, one has modest means, and one has means.

The salesperson takes the four on a lot tour, first showing them an economy car — small, efficient to operate, few options and a sticker price of $10,000. An additional premium of $2,500 is required when purchasing the economy car for a total price of $12,500.

Opinion: Nuovo backed for selectboard

Posted on February 29, 2016 |
By Donna Donahue



I would like to recommend that the citizens of Middlebury return Victor Nuovo to the selectboard.

His voice is needed.
