Opinion: Many students disagree with college's pipeline stand

Posted on July 27, 2015 |
By Zane H. Anthony



I am a Middlebury College senior strongly opposed to the college’s position in favor of a proposed 41-mile pipeline siphoning natural gas from Colchester to Middlebury. The full, unflinching support for this proposal among Middlebury faculty, administrators and board members is deplorable and misguided. I commend Bristol lawyer Jim Dumont’s stance that this project, with a price tag surging above $150 million, is a huge mistake for Vermont.

Opinion: Early dementia makes friend's birthday bittersweet

Posted on July 27, 2015 |
By Diana Cotter



On July 23 my best friend Maria will turn 73. She won’t know it’s her birthday as she suffers from early onset dementia.

In the summer of 2005 as I was preparing to move to Vermont, I was diagnosed for the second time with breast cancer. I had already sold my house and had to be out in six weeks, the surgery was in three weeks and I had barely begun to pack.

Opinion: Death of a culture

Posted on July 23, 2015 |
By Fred Barnes



With so many terrible things happening in this world that we must address, each one seems a monumental task. I’m convinced  that all these things are connected. The action we take to address all these terrible circumstances seems to be on a downward spiral, treating violence with more violence.

Why are we alone in the developed world with capital punishment, which has never proved effective in deterring crime? We are a violent culture. We are a warring nation, history proves it.

Clippings: Summer can test parents' patience

Posted on July 23, 2015 |
By Faith Gong



“I am so bored. I’m bored to death!” moans my 7-year-old daughter.

We are three weeks into summer vacation. For one of those weeks, she attended a day camp at Lake Dunmore. For two and a half of those weeks, her grandparents visited from California; this visit included a trip to the Six Flags Great Escape water and amusement parks, a day at Shelburne Farms, the Ilsley Library summer reading truck touch, and a strawberry picking outing. For two weeks, she took daily swimming lessons at the Middlebury Town Pool.

Eric Davis: Democrats have opportunity, challenges

Posted on July 23, 2015 |
By Eric Davis



Gov. Shumlin’s decision not to seek re-election next year has accelerated the timetable for Vermont’s 2016 election cycle. Prospective Democratic candidates for governor are expected to announce their intentions within the next few months, rather than wait until 2016.

At this time, the strongest potential Democratic candidates would be, in alphabetical order, Matt Dunne, Sue Minter and Shap Smith. Each of them would bring assets to the campaign, and each would also need to address weaknesses and vulnerabilities.

Opinion: Dairy's event was appreciated

Posted on July 23, 2015 |
By Sharon D'Avignon



Times have changed and to find people that are willing to offer someone assistance without expecting something in return is really quite rare these days. There was a time not too many decades ago, a time when I appreciated life and how people treated people like friends and were always willing to offer a hand and had no intention of asking for anything in return. It was the feeling you get when you do something nice and maybe make someone else’s day a little bit better.

Opinion: Towns unfairly have bug liability

Posted on July 23, 2015 |
By Thomas Vanacore



In response to your July 16, 2015, coverage of mosquito control: State administrative policy governing mosquito control is based on what seems to be a fundamental flaw. On the one hand the state has claimed jurisdiction and authority over “waters of the state,” while on the other hand liabilities issuing from those same waters such as mosquito control have been laid squarely on the shoulders of the locals.

Opinion: Corporate ‘hush money’ undermining state politics

Posted on July 23, 2015 |
By Fred Person



I ponder about core values and wisdom which surrounds how our legislation brings bills into law.

The “steroid” RESET program, which is replacing the Renewables Energies SPEED program now, is law only because of the support of having gun silencers manufactured in Vermont, which has not been done since the Al Capone Days.

Silencing!

“Do what they (corporations) tell you to do!” The voice of a fearful friend.
