Gregory Dennis: Finding the 'possible' in fossil fuel divestment

Posted on April 6, 2017 |
By Greg Dennis



The old saying goes that politics is the art of the possible.

Nowhere has that been more apparent in Vermont politics than in the battle over fossil fuel divestment.

The global effort to divest major institutions out of fossil fuels — to sell off any assets they held in coal, gas and oil companies — began on college campuses six years ago.

Letter to the Editor: Reading effort, article praised

Posted on April 6, 2017 |
By Ray Hudson



What a fine article about Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library and Addison County Readers (Addison Independent, March 30). The Friends of Ilsley Public Library donated $22,000 to the program over the past 10 years.

This is just one of the ways the members of the Friends contribute to making this great library and this terrific community even greater. (That’s a lot of used books at $1 each and a lot of memberships that start at $5 each.) Yay, readers!

Letter to the Editor: Hosting visitors in Florida wrong

Posted on April 6, 2017 |
By Lindsay Hart



As an immigrant and naturalized citizen of this country, I was thrilled and delighted to visit Washington, D.C., and tour the seat of our government. As a family we “did” Washington: the Capitol Building, the Library of Congress, the museums, the Mall — we did it all. Most inspiring to me was the White House, that home of the sitting president. It is not a palace or castle built by a monarch or despot, but our White House was built by the people, for their chosen leader, and is the “People’s House.”

April is the Month of the Young Child

Posted on April 6, 2017 |
By Faith Gong



By FAITH GONG

It’s the time of year when those of us living in Vermont wonder: Just what time of year IS it? Since March 20, my children have awoken each morning to observe with confusion: “It’s spring, but there’s still snow on the ground!” Is it winter? Spring? Mud season? Any and all, depending on the day.

But here is some welcome clarity: In Addison County, the entire month of April is the Month of the Young Child.

Letter to the Editor: Legal pot not the proper solution

Posted on April 6, 2017 |
By Steve Reynolds



The issue of “marijuana legalization” as presented is not truly about legalization. Truthfully, the solutions proposed are about new regulations for the financial gain of the state. True legalization would be complete deregulation, which is not the proposed agenda. Lawmakers are in a conflict of interest, which clouds their understanding. Some clarity is in order. I oppose legalizing marijuana in Vermont for the following reasons.

Letter to the Editor: Farm-to-School program worth modest investment

Posted on April 6, 2017 |
By Patti Smith



I am a home childcare provider and educator in Bristol, and I support expanding Farm-to-School in Vermont to include childcare, and increasing state funding to $500,000 to help more children experience Farm-to-School.

In the past year, I was fortunate to participate in a series of workshops hosted by Shelburne Farms that introduced me to the Farm-to-School program. It was a unique, important, and wholesome experience, and I believe that Farm-to-School should be gifted to every Vermont child.

Letter to the Editor: This country needs to build a wall — around its leader
