By Emerson Lynn



To Mr. Shumlin:

If we could add 25 million post-secondary educated students to the workforce by 2025, the boost to the nation’s Gross Domestic Product would be $500 billion annually, according to a Georgetown University study.

By Angelo Lynn



Middlebury is on a roll. Recent news that the Middlebury Land Trust will buy 38.3 acres on the southeastern flank of Chipman Hill, thereby setting aside an extremely important parcel of land for recreational uses and as a valuable community park, only adds to a string of events that are creating a very positive vibe in the community.

Partisan attacks against 'the government' mirror tragedy of the commons

Posted on June 9, 2011 |
By Addy Indy Staff



A frequent theme in this column is imploring that actions taken by individuals or boards, first serve the common good. In an elegantly written column this week, Ira Chaleff, outgoing chairman of the Congressional Management Foundation, captures this same theme with an apt analogy that addresses today’s congressional dysfunction.

Natural gas pipeline would strengthen area's economy

Posted on March 31, 2011 |
By Angelo S. Lynn
