Opinion: Shumlin skirts pipeline answers

Posted on April 2, 2014 |
By Norton Latourelle



I left the Legislative Luncheon in Middlebury on March 24 with an upset stomach. It had little to do with the great goulash and brownie meal that the American Legion provided. The trouble seemed to originate from the keynote speaker. What the press didn’t say is what the governor avoided answering. And how could they? He didn’t say anything. Sound confusing? Well that’s how I felt.

Greg Dennis: College-town collaboration is a winner

Posted on April 2, 2014 |
By Gregory Dennis



Every year after Town Meeting Day, Vermonters get an interesting glimpse at what we “really” think about some controversial statewide issues. That glimpse comes courtesy of State Sen. William Doyle’s survey distributed at many town meetings.

MIDDLEBURY — On March 11, 1983, fans of the Middlebury Union High School boys’ basketball team packed the University of Vermont’s Patrick Gymnasium to watch a game that created a lifetime of memories for the team, sparked excitement in the community, shocked the Vermont sports world — and changed the course of a couple lives.

On that night, the Tigers completed a 24-0 season by defeating heavily favored, two-time defending state champion St. Johnsbury, 73-57, in the Division I final.

Editorial: Sen. McCain predicts Supreme Court ruling will lead to more scandal

Posted on April 2, 2014 |
By Angelo Lynn



Sen. Bernie Sanders may have had the quote of the week when he said: “Freedom of speech, in my view, does not mean the freedom to buy the United States government.” Then added: “What world are the five conservative Supreme Court justices living in?
