Sports Column by Andy Kirkaldy: Authority figures show bad side of pro sports

Posted on January 10, 2013 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



Every now and then the stupid side of sports is fully displayed.

This past weekend was such a time, and in more ways than one.

Let’s start with first things first. Word broke late on Friday that the National Hockey League owners and players had resolved their labor dispute after 113 days, and by Sunday it was confirmed.

It’s not that the resolution was unwelcome news, it’s that the words “labor dispute” are used kindly. It was all the owners and commissioner Gary Bettman’s fault.

Politically Thinking: State must find way to fund road repairs

Posted on January 10, 2013 |
By Eric Davis



Funding the state’s transportation program is a major issue on the agenda of this year’s legislative session. Since 2000, miles traveled on Vermont’s roads have increased by 13 percent, but annual gasoline and diesel fuel tax revenues are the same today as they were 12 years ago. As Vermonters have replaced gas-guzzlers with more fuel efficient vehicles, the new vehicles use less fuel per mile. Thus, gas and diesel taxes, which are the principal sources of revenue for the state’s Transportation Fund, are not keeping up with the wear and tear on the roads.
