Posted on January 26, 2017 |

There are a few reasons for the increase, but here’s the leading culprit: The first increase in water and sewer rates the town has enacted in around seven years.

Eric Davis: New leader is off to a dubious start

Posted on January 26, 2017 |
By Eric Davis



Donald Trump’s presidency began last Friday with a dark and foreboding inaugural address. The President portrayed America as a dystopia (“carnage”) and laid out a mix of populist, nationalist and protectionist responses. Unlike almost all of his predecessors, Trump said nothing in his inaugural address about history, the Constitution, freedom, equality, justice or liberty.

Greg Dennis: Coping and hoping in the Trump era

Posted on January 26, 2017 |
By Greg Dennis



It’s inevitable that when a presidential candidate wins by 2.9 million votes — and is still denied the presidency — there will be a lot of disappointed people. When that candidate is a woman who seemed on the verge of making history, the disappointment has turned into heartbreak for many Americans.

Letter to the editor: Women's March was uplifting

Posted on January 26, 2017 |
By Patricia Heather-Lea



On Saturday, Jan. 21, I drove with 3 other women to Montpelier for the Women’s March. On our way traveling south on I-89, we noticed the traffic slowing down to a crawl. We were very lucky and had the chance to get off at the Middlesex exit and onto Route 2. We made it to Montpelier. Luckily we found a parking spot and walked to Montpelier High School to join the thousands bound for the State House.

Here are some of the lessons and messages that I read on posters. I share them with you in poetic form:
