Editorial: A way to trump Trump

Posted on December 7, 2017 |
By Angelo Lynn



If you’re sick-to-your-stomach with Trump’s reckless actions that are undermining America’s fight against global warming (not to mention our role in world affairs, the long-term economy, health care, education, immigration, and on and on and on), here’s a positive step you can take to fight back: Share your ideas on what climate policies and solutions Vermont should pursue to meet its clean energy and greenhouse gas reduction goals.

Letter to the Editor: A modest answer to train's height

Posted on December 7, 2017 |
By Lee Beckwith



Regarding the height requirement for the Amtrak passenger train of the future — it is unfortunate that Amtrak is unwilling to compromise on the double decker car height requirement. I’m almost embarrassed to suggest as I am sure someone must have thought of this already, as rider numbers increase and the cars get too crowded, simply add another car. Trains can easily get longer. Must they become taller?

Letter to the Editor: Proposed Middlebury rail project is unsafe and unnecessary

Posted on December 7, 2017 |
By Max Kraus



I should like to add my voice to that of Bruce Hiland and the others who continue to describe the shortcomings and dangers inherent in the Middlebury “train-tunnel” project as currently proposed. While Jim Gish and others have done their best to mitigate the problems, this does not change the fact that the tunnel arrangement as currently proposed is unsafe and unnecessary.

Letter to the Editor: Mount Abe board could lease existing facility, build new

Posted on December 4, 2017 |
By Stephen Harris



The bond request of $35 million to renovate Mt. Abe has failed twice. I believe that the request is asking for too much money to be invested in the wrong place. The reconstruction of the 50-year-old Mt. Abe building does not address three important background facts:

1. The community cannot afford this request.

2. Mt. Abe ranks number 33 of 55 public high schools in Vermont (by 2017 test results).

3. The student body is shrinking because the region is losing young adults due to lack of opportunity.

Letter to the Editor: Most cats perfectly happy indoors

Posted on December 4, 2017 |
By Jessica Danyow



Got Cats?

Like many Middlebury animal lovers, I’ve been following the recent Front Porch Forum discussion about indoor versus outdoor cats. There are well-meaning people on both sides of the issue who are sharing what they see as best meeting the needs of different kind of animals and we applaud that!

Letter to the Editor: Citizens have responsibility to be informed on civic matters

Posted on November 30, 2017 |
By Sharon Compagna



I am continually reading about folks thinking particular items are “fast tracked,” which hints at something illegal or underhanded. The selectboard publishes their agenda and minutes openly and the natural gas issue was discussed several times over the last few years. An agreement was entered into before I even got off the board.

Letter to the Editor: What about a 'no confidence vote' on Trump?

Posted on November 30, 2017 |
By Pat Ullom



Donald Trump has a disapproval rating of approximately 70 percent of the American public. He has no interest, knowledge, or regard for the Constitution, Democracy or the Rule of Law. He has proven himself to be corrupt, a habitual liar, and a self-centered, out his control child with no interest or compassion for human life. His adolescent insults and criticisms of people and world leaders makes him an embarrassment and a danger to the world.
