Clippings: Daughter more than treading water

Posted on January 14, 2010 |
By John Flowers



I (vaguely) recall my first swimming lesson amounting to something like this: My instructor, probably an overzealous young punk who must’ve studied under Genghis Khan, picked me up and chucked me into the community swimming pool. It was the lunkhead’s way of cutting to the chase, I suppose, reasoning in a Neanderthal kind of way that if the little kid instinctively moved his arms and legs in a desperate act of self-preservation, he was teachable and could earn his water wings.

Around the bend: Making sense of memory lapses

Posted on January 14, 2010 |
By Jessie Raymond



“Cybill Shepherd!”

There are worse things a person could spontaneously shout while standing in line at the grocery store. As it was, my outburst caused the checkout clerk to drop a dozen eggs and a person in the next line to look around and say, “Where?”

Between the Lines: School taxes — back to the blackboard

Posted on January 14, 2010 |
By Gregory Dennis



Pity the poor members of local school boards who have to put a budget before voters this March.

At least our schools’ administrators get paid to sort through the tangled mess that is Vermont school funding. But school board members go through this annual exercise in masochism out of their truly honorable sense of civic duty and doing what is right for our children.

Douglas sings same old song - cutting taxes all the time

Posted on January 11, 2010 |
By Angelo Lynn



In his final State of the State address, Gov. Jim Douglas emphasized three familiar themes: promote job growth, cut taxes and reduce school spending. He’s been saying much the same thing for the previous few years to little success — a fact that he has too willingly blamed on his opponents.

In retrospect, he might have wondered if a more progressive agenda could have yielded better results.

Consider the state’s current plight and the possibility of a different approach.
