MIDDLEBURY — It began with an idea and some initiative.

Now it’s about to become a well-oiled machine.

The founders of Full Sun Co. confirmed last week their signing of a lease with local businessman Tony Neri to occupy the former home of Vermont Soap at 616 Exchange St. in Middlebury. Plans call for that new enterprise to soon churn out thousands of gallons of non-GMO — and eventually organic — sunflower and canola oils for use in a variety of cooking preparations.

Guest editorial: How Vermont's state colleges are failing their students

Posted on October 16, 2014 |
By Allan Rodgers



This week’s writer is Allan Rodgers, MBA, MEd, a professor of business at, and former president of, Vermont Technical College.

Twenty years ago, the Vermont State Colleges hit the demographic iceberg of declining future high school graduates. The good ship VSC has been taking on water ever since and the slow sinking has finally become visible on the top deck.

What government should not do is to create a multi-billion dollar health care monopoly where patients have no choices, providers are controlled by government and taxpayers assessed staggering new taxes.

HEALTH CARE: We have a great network of community hospitals and providers here in Vermont. We should not fault them for engaging in business practices that are necessary to be sustainable in our current health care financing environment. Yet this environment is disastrous for providers, employers, families and for patients who struggle to pay the bills.
