Editorial: Komline's beef with sick leave is all politics, not defending small business

Posted on February 8, 2016 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



Of the issues facing Vermont’s Legislature this session, the opposition to a modest paid sick leave bill for Vermont businesses has been overplayed by a handful of Republicans seeking to “protect” small businesses against the rule of big government.

Opinion: Rikert a jewell for Nordic skiers

Posted on February 8, 2016 |
By Bill McKibben



One small Addison County miracle that readers might not be aware of: The Nordic skiing up at Bread Loaf/Rikert Nordic Center is quite wonderful.

Despite the worst winter in living memory, Mike Hussey and his crew have managed to keep five kilometers of beautiful groomed snow alive through the droughts and rains, which means that our impressive high schoolers and Bill Koch League kids and the dynamic college team have been able to keep skiing, and the rest of us too.

Eagle basketball.jpg

BRISTOL — It probably wouldn’t be fair to call Tuesday’s visit from Milton a must-win game for the Mount Abraham Union High School girls’ basketball team.

But with the regular season winding down, it was close to one. The Eagles have been playing better after a brutal early schedule, but entering the game with a 4-10 mark that includes three recent losses to Division I teams, it was important to show they could defeat a competent, but not great, 6-7 D-II Yellowjacket team.

Bullets Nazarene church Leicester_0837 CMYK.jpg

LEICESTER — Parishioners arrived at the Church of the Nazarene on Route 7 in Leicester for Sunday morning services on Jan. 24 to find four bullets holes in the church sanctuary.

The bullets appear to have been fired into the church from outside on the south side of the building.

One of the bullets was lying on the floor of the church and has been turned over to Vermont State Police, who have considered a possible link to an incident at Brandon Scrap Metal four days earlier.

VERGENNES — Members of the Vergennes City Council meeting, at their Jan. 26 meeting, deemed untimely a petition submitted by former Alderwoman Clara “Ziggy” Comeau and declined to place an article she requested on the Town Meeting Day ballot.

Petitioned articles had a Jan. 13 deadline, earlier than the Jan. 25 deadline for submitting paperwork for those wishing to run for elective office. Comeau presented her petition on Jan. 21, Hawley said, saying she had been confused about the dates.
