Editorial: A challenge to embrace

Posted on May 27, 2010 |
By Angelo Lynn



As Middlebury bids John and Bonnie McCardell its fondest farewell and best wishes in their new venture, there is yet one more reason to treasure their arrival in town (separately) more than 30 years ago: with a new challenge to meet emerging needs through the United Way, the McCardells have again set the bar a notch higher in ways to give back to one’s community.

Politically Thinking: Race for Senate control will be tight

Posted on May 27, 2010 |
By Eric L. Davis



During the 36 years he has been a senator, Vermont Democrat Patrick Leahy has spent 20 years as a member of the majority party and 16 years as a member of the minority party. Leahy will almost certainly be re-elected to a seventh term in November, but whether he will be a member of the majority or the minority party when the Senate reconvenes in January is very much an open question.

Between the Lines: Dubious advice to new college grads

Posted on May 27, 2010 |
By Gregory Dennis



Because so many people have asked me for a copy of the remarks I made at Sunday’s Middlebury College commencement, I’ve decided to reprint them here.

In case you hadn’t seen the news reports, I was asked to step in at the last minute for Nicholas Kristoff and Sheryl WuDunn, the scheduled commencement speakers who were last-minute no-shows. Apparently they had a Third World country to save that day and decided, for some inexplicable reason, that this was more important than giving a commencement speech.

Posted on May 24, 2010 |
By Bernie Sanders

The Newton Academy: Reflections on a community's loss

Posted on May 24, 2010 |
By Ed Barnard



She died on April 7, 2010. At the age of 200, she was a veteran. For two centuries folks had come and gone, trampling her floors, enriching their minds and their lives. If she could have spoken, what tales she might have told.

Editorial: Contrary to popular myth, bureaucrats aren't the enemy

Posted on May 20, 2010 |
By Angelo Lynn



BP’s oil spill in the Gulf Coast has prompted older stories of BP’s mismanagement to rise to the fore. The stories are of political favoritism involving the White House, Department of Justice and the EPA, all undermining the good work that was trying to be done by bureaucrats doing their job.

Editorial: Current Use support defies veto

Posted on May 20, 2010 |
By Angelo Lynn



As Gov. Douglas contemplates vetoes of last-minute bills passed by the Legislature, many of his supporters over the past eight years are appealing for his support of H.485, a bill that reforms the Current Use law. Douglas is considering a veto presumably because it restricts a landowner’s ability to enroll the land in Current Use for a short time to avoid higher taxes, then take the land out of the program to sell it at a premium. It is, in short, a loophole in the 30-year-old law that was created in the 1990s when a “development penalty” was weakened.
