By Joe Fusco



This week’s writer is Joe Fusco, a vice president of Casella Waste Systems, Inc. He is also a member of the board of advisers for the University of Vermont’s MBA program in Sustainable Entrepreneurship (SEMBA).

I’m not here to argue with you about climate change. I’m not here to convince you that it’s real, or that it’s not.

Posted on April 13, 2015 |
By Alexandria McGuire



Tucked away in a shady spot on South Water Street in Vergennes, a hive of preschool activity buzzes during the school year. At Evergreen Preschool children aged 3-5 arrive at school two or three days per week to have an opportunity to learn and grow with peers in an environment rich with energy and warmth.

Opinion: State slow in explaining Middlebury Airport project

Posted on April 13, 2015 |
By Prem Prakash



I am writing to follow up on Richard and Isabelle Terk’s letter in the April 2 edition, “Airport proposal has many flaws.” I’m going to suggest an additional flaw in the project. That is, no one in our community — including neighbors, selectboard members, airport employees, and pilots — seems to know the full scope of technical and financial details of the project.

Opinion: Secular left can't harm Christianity

Posted on April 13, 2015 |
By C.W. Cobb



It’s interesting to see the latest installment in the secular left’s attempt to bring Christianity to heel with its “outrage” over a recent Indiana bill, passed in an effort to preserve religious freedom.

Posted on April 13, 2015 |
By Krista Karlson



Students around the world are rising and we will no longer accept silence. Today, the Investure Schools Coalition for Fossil Fuel Divestment sent a letter to each of our colleges’ presidents requesting a meeting between administrators and representatives from our divestment campaigns. We are sending this letter in conjunction with the National Alumni Escalation for Fossil Fuel Divestment and are requesting that our presidents respond by the culmination of Harvard Heat Week for Fossil Fuel Divestment on April 17.

Editorial: Senate can tweak H.361, but must keep ball rolling

Posted on April 9, 2015 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



As the Senate takes up the House passed education bill, H.361, the goal in the legislation is to take small steps toward progress, allow for local control and not threaten schools or communities with repercussions that cause undue hardship.

Jessie Raymond: Call me, maybe — but keep it real

Posted on April 8, 2015 |
By Jessie Raymond



One of the downsides of us still having a landline — besides all the young people thinking we’re geezers — is that pretty much the only calls we get on it are from telemarketers.

Last week, I got one that really threw me. The caller said she was from the Cancer Is Really Awful Foundation or something, one of those vaguely real-sounding organizations that either save millions of lives or are shams run out of abandoned warehouses. You never can tell.
