Guest editorial: Why would we cut tax credits for job creation?

Posted on August 22, 2014 |
By Emerson Lynn



Effective Jan. 1, 2014, the tax credit allowed Vermont businesses for research and development was cut from 30 percent to 27 percent of the federal credit. The legislation signaling this reduction was signed into law last month, the same month the state went into a tailspin about the future of IBM and its 4,000 jobs.

Included in the legislation is also the requirement that the state tax department publish the names of all those who avail themselves of the reduced tax credit.

Please elect Amy Sheldon to Vermont state Legislature. She will provide a strong voice for Middlebury voters in Montpelier toward progress in health care, affordable housing, environmental stewardship and economic justice.

Amy knows state bureaucracy in her capacity as a natural resource professional. She brings vision through her experience in town planning. We are fortunate to have her as one of many candidates running for this office.

Opinion: Insurance carrier's rate increase hurts Vermonters

Posted on August 22, 2014 |
By Millard Cox

One story described the impact of our state’s revenue shortfall and the resulting $31 million in budget cuts that will further distress needy Vermonters and impair the capacity of state service agencies to meet the needs of their clients. The other article concerned the request by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Vermont for a 9.8 percent rate increase to its subscribers.

Community Forum: Politicians face single-payer test

Posted on August 21, 2014 |
By Paul Ralston



This week’s writer is Rep. Paul Ralston, a Democrat representing Middlebury in the Vermont House; he is not running for re-election. He is also chief executive officer of Vermont Coffee Co., a Middlebury business.

“Single payer” is the buzzword of Vermont’s 2014 election. A candidate’s pledge to support single payer is the litmus test for some. Big money — mostly from out-of-state unions — is flowing into Vermont to support candidates who pass the single-payer test.

Clippings: Robin Williams an enigma; aren't we all?

Posted on August 20, 2014 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



Other than feelings of shock and sadness for his family, one of my first reactions to Robin Williams’ suicide was to wonder how well we really know anybody, never mind those who live in the public eye.
