Middlebury Trailrunner: The Rikert 10 km race trail

Posted on March 4, 2011 | Blog Category:
By Jeff Byers



Driving up into the mountains on Sunday, I was initially undecided whether to head into lesser used trails, or confine my late afternoon ski to more groomed terrain.

Editorial: Vermont's town meetings, school votes pose sharp contrast to national scene

Posted on March 3, 2011 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



Vermonters are fortunate today to live in a state where civic-minded progress overshadows the need by some to blame all things government for the recession and tepid economic recovery.

In states like Wisconsin, Texas, Oklahoma, Ohio and much of the deep South, taxpayers are taking their frustrations out on the budgets they can control — schools and towns — and selling the future of the younger generation down the drain.

Editorial: A break-through in Bristol?

Posted on March 3, 2011 |
By Angelo S. Lynn

Politically Thinking: Governor should appoint commissioner

Next week, the House Education Committee will hold a hearing on a bill to designate the governor, rather than the state board of education, as the appointing authority for Vermont’s education commissioner.

The board of education consists of 10 members, appointed by the governor for six-year terms. During a governor’s elected term of two years, he or she can appoint only three or four members of the state board. The governor would need two terms, or four years, to appoint a majority of the members of the board of education.
