Jessie Raymond: A billion reasons to skip the lottery

Posted on January 14, 2016 |
By Jessie Raymond



In case you were wondering, I didn’t win the U.S. Powerball jackpot last night.

That’s no big surprise, given that the odds of winning were one in 292,201,338. The chances of me being attacked by a shark — in Vermont, yesterday — were exponentially higher.

But the main reason I didn’t win is that I didn’t play.

Opinion: Unification vote merits support

Posted on January 14, 2016 |
By Linda Kokinis



Let’s talk about the kids. “Vermont students outpace their peers in most other states on national tests, can hold their own on international assessments, and have one of the highest graduation rates in the nation — 92% in 2014” (The Mountain Times, Dec. 17, 2015).

Education is an ever-evolving process which needs to mirror the culture and society our children are growing up in. Act 46 serves to ensure that we do not lag behind in providing a structure that works for all the towns, large and small, in Vermont.

Legislative Review: RNeSU ready for unification vote

Posted on January 14, 2016 |
By Rep. Butch Shaw



Act 46, as enacted by the Vermont Legislature, requires school districts to study their current governance models to determine both how efficient they are and if they are educating their students equitably. Credit should be given to the members of our local school boards, Superintendent Jeanne Collins and the staff of the Rutland Northeast Supervisory Union for approaching these required tasks with a “can-do” attitude.

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

Posted on January 14, 2016 |

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.
