Letters to the Editor: Vermont regulations overburden childcare providers

Posted on October 16, 2017 |
By Renee Mosier



I was pleased to see a discussion of inadequate childcare in Addison County on Oct. 9th’s front page, and even more pleased to learn of the forum that had taken place with childcare experts, educators, and legislatures to discuss this important issue that challenges so many families. However, there was no mention of what seems to be the most obvious challenge of late for child care providers: the nearly 100 pages of licensing regulations for home-based child care providers that were dropped on providers last year by the Department for Children and Families.

Posted on October 16, 2017 |
By Charlie Mitchell



The Vermont Department of Health’s 3-4-50 campaign focuses on helping Vermonters live healthier lives by encouraging three positive behaviors — quitting smoking, regular exercise and healthy eating. These habits will help cut down on the debilitating cost of treating the four chronic diseases (cancer, heart disease, type 2 diabetes and lung disease) that cause over 50 percent of deaths statewide.

MUHS boys' soccer hold off Eagles for 1-0 victory

BRISTOL — The Middlebury Union High School boys’ soccer team’s edge in first-half possession translated into a 1-0 win over host Mount Abraham on Friday. But despite the Tigers’ territorial advantage the Eagles always seemed to be a counterpunch away as the game wore on.

As the teams enter the final week of the regular season the win kept the 7-1-3 Tigers in fifth place in Division I, just ahead of Rutland (8-3-1) and nipping on the heels of No. 4 Champlain Valley (9-3), although they will probably need help to catch the Redhawks.

Rally lifts VUHS boys' soccer over MVU, 2-1

Posted on October 16, 2017 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



SWANTON — The Vergennes Union High School boys’ soccer team on Friday rallied for a critical win at Missisquoi, 2-1.

The result put the Commodores at 5-5-1, good for seventh place in Division III with two games remaining on their schedule.

It appears all but certain they will host a first-round game unless they drop both their remaining contests while both No. 8 Thetford (4-6-1) and No. 9 Windsor (5-7) sweep the rest of their games, and even then the points could still favor VUHS.
