Greg Dennis: Bold leadership on Vermont divestment

Posted on January 14, 2016 |
By Greg Dennis



What a difference a year makes.

In 2014, Gov. Peter Shumlin made national headlines with a bold State of the State address that highlighted opiate addiction.

Last year, by contrast, the governor had to find a back way out of the Statehouse after his annual address. His normal exit was blocked by dozens of angry protesters, who objected to his abandoning the dream of single-payer healthcare.

Fast forward to this year’s address — and once again Shumlin plays the role of bold leader.

Opinion: Marijuana stats were misleading

Posted on January 14, 2016 |
By Dave Silberman



Despite widely reported, oft-repeated claims by opponents of marijuana legalization, there was not a 32 percent increase in marijuana-related traffic deaths in Colorado between 2013 and 2014. Quite the contrary, an honest presentation of the data reveals that there was actually a slight decrease in drugged driving in Colorado following legalization.

Opinion: Recent studies show natural gas dirtier than coal

Posted on January 14, 2016 |
By Ross Conrad



The entire debate over the recently reapproved Vermont Gas pipeline has been filled with false claims that natural gas is cleaner than oil and coal. While this was once true, it failed to be so about a decade ago.

Sports column by Matt Dickerson: A fly rod in the hand

By Matt Dickerson



I have often thought of tools and technologies as neutral. They are neither good nor bad in and of themselves. What matters is how we use them. So I thought, and so I argued.

ANwSU schools mull late voting on spending plans

Posted on January 11, 2016 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — As Addison Northwest Supervisory Union elementary school boards wrestled with budget challenges last week, they also began considering whether to move voting on their proposed spending plans from Town Meeting Day to a later date.

That idea, first suggested by Vergennes Union High School board member Neil Kamman on Jan. 4, gained traction at Vergennes Union Elementary, Ferrisburgh Central and Addison Central school board meetings later last week, said ANwSU Superintendent JoAn Canning.

Addison Central School board to consider additions to budgets

Posted on January 11, 2016 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



ADDISON — Administrators presented two possible 2016-2017 spending plans to the Addison Central School board on Thursday, one that made few changes to school’s program and would raise spending by almost 5 percent to roughly $1.62 million, and one that cut spending about $36,000 to about $1.5 million.

Principal Matt DeBlois and Addison Northwest Supervisory Union administrators crafted that $1.5 million budget to avoid the Act 46 per-pupil spending threshold after which residents must pay a dollar-for-dollar penalty on their tax bills.

Regulator won't reconsider pipeline permit

Posted on January 11, 2016 |
By Addison Independent



VERMONT — The Vermont Public Service Board on Friday said it would not reconsider the permission it had already granted to Vermont Gas Systems to build a 43-mile natural gas pipeline from Colchester to Middlebury and Vergennes.

Opponents of the so-called “Addison Natural Gas Project” had requested that the regulator reconsider the Certificate of Public Good it had granted to Vermont Gas in December 2013 because the projected price of the pipeline had jumped 78 percent.

Vermont Governor Shumlin calls for divestment and job creation

Posted on January 11, 2016 |
By Anne Galloway VTDigger.org



MONTPELIER — Gov. Peter Shumlin gave his sixth and final State of the State address to the Vermont Legislature on Thursday.

The uncharacteristically lengthy speech was a victory lap through memory lane, with a listing of accomplishments that lasted more than an hour. In the past, Shumlin, who has difficulty delivering long speeches because of his dyslexia, has kept his addresses short. This time, however, the governor spared no detail and appeared to be determined to defend his three terms in office.
