Opinion: Many Responded in time of need

Posted on March 10, 2016 |
By Faith Lowell



This week was the time of the greatest heartbreak and greatest inspiration of my life. I lost my beloved three dogs and the entire contents of my house to a fire.

When I awoke to the smell of smoke at 3 a.m., my phone power was out. I tried running through the house to rescue my three girls, but when I reached them it was too late. Then I ran across the street to a college house that was lit up. I woke a student, Miller Judge, an angel who wrapped me in a blanket, gave me some water and called 911 and two of my friends.

Dear Sen. Leahy:

I encourage you to reconsider your vote as a Democratic super delegate, and offer your support to Bernie. If you take the lead on this, I truly hope other super delegates will follow.

Opinion: Porter's approach to women's health is beyond reproach

Posted on March 10, 2016 |
By Jodi Brown



I write to address an opinion published on March 3 under the headline “Changes at PMC to affect women” which spoke of the combining of practices of the midwives and the obstetricians at Porter Hospital. I proudly respond as both a patient of Tapestry Midwifery and a provider at the new Porter Women’s Health. I am the most recent physician addition to the former Addison Associates in OB/GYN (AAOG), having started this past August. I also started my new position when I was 26 weeks pregnant.

Opinion: Porter decisions are affecting care

Posted on March 10, 2016 |
By Christina Wadsworth



Word on the street has it that Porter is axing doctors, nurses and relationships with practices.

Jane Lindholm’s “Vermont Edition” articulated the challenges, and it is clear from the word on the street and the radio program’s guests that these challenges are being addressed without transparency to those affected.

Greg Dennis: Is 'Trumpmania' a media phenomenon or news?

Posted on March 10, 2016 |
By Greg Dennis



Has the media’s obsession with Donald Trump gone too far?

On the cable news networks, it’s often All Trump, All the Time. That has prompted the media’s critics — who are never in short supply — to question this obsession with the coarse braggart who is leading the Republican presidential race.

Opinion: Canadian friends invite me to move north

Posted on March 10, 2016 |
By Peter Grant



Canadian friends are inviting me to move to Canada before Trump has a wall built, paid for by Canada.

No one has asked how Trump will force Mexico to build a wall. How many bombs will it take before Trump realizes that Mexico can’t afford to restrain its criminals, much less pay for a wall? Does Trump think before engaging his mouth?

I remember when people around the world were laughing with puzzlement when Reagan was elected back in 1980.

Opinion: A Comment on the Political Scene

Posted on March 10, 2016 |
By Lawrence Jones



Once upon a dreary time,

Those who would be president

Tapped the country’s discontent

To make a brand new paradigm.

 

Two candidates talked policy,

And with each other disagreed.

Though each, of course, wants to succeed,

Neither descends to lunacy.

 

Six or eight, though, parody

An elementary schoolyard brawl.

Except for two, they all look small,

And most should be in custody!

Opinion: Work remains to be done after encouraging vote for ACSU unity

Posted on March 10, 2016 |
By Jason Duquette-Hoffman



On the night of the election, as town-by-town results trickled in through the wee hours, it became clear that a profound shift was under way. We have all heard so much this cycle about changing political paradigms, but no one had predicted the way in which this vote would unfold.
