Letter to the editor: Mr. Lynn, Legislature miss the boat on agriculture

Posted on April 12, 2018 |
By James Maroney



In Thomas Jefferson’s day, America’s — and by extension, Vermont’s  — preeminent occupation was agriculture. But in the 1820’s, the opening of the Erie Canal, which would provide a far more efficient link between western farms and eastern markets, adumbrated the future prospects of food production in the relatively inhospitable soil and climate of Vermont.

Letter to the editor: Trump ignoring threat from China

Posted on April 12, 2018 |
By Peter Grant



Trump has met his match and doesn’t know it, Xi Jinping, the smiling leader of China. This man is absolute ruler of China and he is extending his authority over many parts of the world by smiling and promising to work together for a better world. He is also building roads and helping build these countries. Like Tibet, once in control of a country it becomes part of China and the people there are no longer independent, but under the iron rule of Xi and China. Instead of being wary of China, Trump is all on edge over North Korea. While Trump sleeps, China increases its power.

Editorial: Governor Scott is spot on

Posted on April 12, 2018 |
By Angelo Lynn



As Gov. Phil Scott courageously held a very public signing of three gun control measures that increase oversight and inspection but only modestly restrict gun access, gun right hecklers called him “traitor” and booed at the mention of his administration also allocating $5 million for school safety.

Scott turned on those hecklers, confronting them directly: “If you want to boo on that, go ahead and boo.”

Editorial: China rises as Trump falls

Posted on April 12, 2018 |
By Angelo Lynn



Will Trump fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller? Can he? Or will Trump fire Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein so his successor can fire Mueller, as Rosenstein, a Republican appointed by Trump, has said he wouldn’t fire Mueller, another Republican, even if his boss, Trump, asked him. Would the obsequious Attorney General Jeff Sessions be allowed to stay? More importantly, will Robert Cohen, Trump’s fixer and one of his personal attorneys, take the fall for his boss or will he squeal in exchange for leniency?

Letter to the editor: Seventh-graders respect gun rights, but press reform

Posted on April 5, 2018 |
By Narges Anzali and Arianna Graham-Gurland



We are seventh-graders at Middlebury Union Middle School. Our names are Narges Anzali and Arianna Graham-Gurland, and we don’t want to be the next statistic. We believe in gun reform because even though people have the right to have guns, we also have the right to live to old age. We often lie awake and imagine the all too familiar scene of a school shooting happening at our school. The sobs, the screams, the frantic phone calls and texts, trying to find your friends and hoping that they are still alive.

Letter to the editor: ACTR post office space supported

Posted on April 5, 2018 |
By Ian Ross



I am writing in support of ACTR and Middlebury officials and the decisions they had to make regarding Main Street parking spaces. They are completely in the right to make safe places to drop off and pick up riders near the post office. I very much wish they had dedicated more space for the busses when the hub was on Merchants Row.
