Guest editorial: Court's decision sound, potus onus on voting public, for the fourth

Posted on July 5, 2012 |

For months, the chattering class occupied itself with the self-appointed task of telling people how the court would rule on “Obamacare” and why. And they were wrong. Almost without exception. No one predicted that Chief Justice John Roberts — nominated by former President George Bush — would side with the court’s four liberal justices to give President Barack Obama his most sought-after victory.

Probably my favorite moment of our family’s enjoyable Saturday night trip to see the Vermont Lake Monsters came when my older daughter gained new perspective on the quality of her internship here at this newspaper.

SALISBURY — As a self-employed paint contractor, Salisbury resident Tim Ryan has navigated through some choppy financial waters during the past four years while the economy has faltered.

And through it all, Ryan believes his fortunes — and those of other small business owners — could have been improved if state government had done more to relieve the tax burden and reduce regulations on struggling enterprises.

Now Ryan, 45, has decided he will try to change state economic development policy from within.

Sixty years of serious mistakes

Posted on July 5, 2012 |
By Gregory Dennis



It’s been said that on the radio, a hockey game — with its endless series of missed shots, errant passes and unintended consequences — sounds like the broadcast of one long mistake.

As I sit on the verge of turning 60, sometimes I’m tempted to conclude that the story of my life would, like the broadcast of a hockey game, sound like one long mistake. Or at least one long unintended consequence.

That got me wondering what a look-back broadcast of those 60 years would be like — perhaps a dialogue between me and the Cosmic Inquisitor.

SUDBURY –– Fourteen kids and two teachers guided their canoes away from the shores of Lake Hortonia and paddled over to a small bay full of lily pads and milfoil, looking around at the different plants and wildlife and taking samples from the water.

The group went out to the lake this past Thursday as part of the five-day East Creek Project, a canoe day camp for students from Orwell Village School that is sponsored by the Vermont Community Foundation’s South Lake Champlain Fund.
