Editorial: Asking the right questions

Posted on August 4, 2014 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



In the business world, one of the harbingers of success and innovation is seen by an entrepreneur’s ability to ask the right questions.

Why is the market reacting the way it is? How could the business respond in beneficial ways? How can the business make its products better to meet public demand, or expand in directions not previously considered? Hypotheticals are posed and examined.

Communities would benefit by doing the same.

He walked up to a volunteer in the front lobby and handed him a baggie filled with change — $6.19 to be exact — as a donation.

Clippings: The joys of rescuing a talented hound

Posted on July 30, 2014 |
By Zach Despart



I always had a dog growing up. Well not me personally, but my family — an English springer spaniel and later a yellow Labrador, who still vigilantly patrols the boundaries of my parents’ property.

At the other end are those who live primarily on lentils and kefir, certain that they are making the healthiest and most socially conscious decisions about their food.

By Angelo S. Lynn

Vermont touts two scenic drives in the state: the dramatic Smugglers’ Notch that goes between Stowe and Jeffersonville featuring a steep, single-lane pitch through large rocky slabs and boulders near the top, and the bucolic Robert Frost Memorial Drive that features a 16-mile section of Route 125 over the Middlebury Gap from East Middlebury to Hancock.

Opinion: Senators are wrong — pipeline won't benefit Cornwall

Posted on July 30, 2014 |
By Brian Gill



Sens. Mullin and Flory state that the Cornwall and Shoreham villages would get access to a more affordable heating option by agreeing to Phase II of the Addison Rutland natural gas pipeline.
