Opinion: Greg's will be missed by many

Posted on April 16, 2015 |
By Myrdith McKinley and Teresa Churchill



The closing of Greg’s Meat Market has saddened us very much, having shopped at the store since he opened it in 1981.

All the employees who have worked for Greg are to be commended for their dedication and loyalty and have become dear friends to both of us.

Greg’s Market provided a service to the community in delivering groceries to shut-ins and the elderly. This was a special service which will not be provided by the other grocery stores.

Community Forum: State faces revenue, not spending challenge

Posted on April 16, 2015 |
By Jack Hoffman



This week’s writer is Jack Hoffman, a policy analyst for the Public Assets Institute, a non-partisan, non-profit organization in Montpelier.

All we’ve heard from Montpelier this year, from the governor to legislative leaders, is that Vermont has a spending problem, not a revenue problem. A new analysis by the Joint Fiscal Office (JFO) shows this conventional wisdom is wrong.

The JFO data show state spending has gone down as a percentage of the economy over the last 10 years.

Guest editorial: Vt. patent law needs to go national

Posted on April 16, 2015 |
By Paul Ralston



Vermont is a creative, innovative place with a strong history of entrepreneurial initiative. Despite difficult economic news, many Vermont businesses are growing and reaching out to new markets. Unfortunately, as our Vermont entrepreneurs gain wider recognition in the marketplace, they are increasingly becoming targets of a very insidious, very un-American threat: bad faith assertions of patent infringement — commonly known as “patent trolls.”

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.

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