Opinion: Unknown helper makes life better

Posted on February 18, 2016 |
By Jorge Martin



I am writing to thank an unknown person who did the sort of kindness that makes living here so good.

On Jan. 12 I lost a hubcap on my Prius but didn’t notice the loss until a day later. Reconstructing my moves I realized that I must have lost it in the parking lot at 1330 Exchange St. when I hit a curb exiting a parking space. I returned there and looked for it but couldn’t find it; I asked inside the building in a few offices, but no one knew of a lost hubcap; I gave up on finding it.

By Michael and Judy Olinick



We hope Middlebury voters will elect Heather Seeley and Dick Terk to two of the three open seats on the selectboard. Both Seeley and Terk would bring valuable experience and expertise to town government, along with a much-needed fresh perspective. We would like to add some of the reasons we support Heather.

Opinion: Scalia, Congress paid only lip service to Constitution

Posted on February 18, 2016 |
By Peter Grant



Scalia was known to be strictly for interpreting the Constitution as it was originally intended. But we have seen that he ignored that rule with bad consequences. Scalia and Supreme Court crew appointed Bush as president. He had no authority under the Constitution to do this and the Constitution has strict rules for making a new president.

Opinion: Unification seen as not benefitting town of Addison

Posted on February 18, 2016 |
By Elizabeth Armstrong



I can see no benefits to the town of Addison voting to unification of our school. The school must be closed. I hope not. There is not enough effort to prevent this, just do as you are told and do unification. No. This town asset is worth too much.

Opinion: Time for state of Vermont to divest from fossil fuels

Posted on February 18, 2016 |
By Wayne Michaud



I am writing in support of fossil fuel divestment. I first learned of this years ago in association with universities divesting. Now I’m finding that those keeping their investments away from oil, coal and natural gas interests has grown to more than 500, including universities, philanthropic organizations, faith-based institutions, medical organizations and state governments. And now there’s a movement in Vermont’s state government to divest. None other than our governor, Peter Shumlin, is actively in support of this.

Benefits, issues seen as ANwSU merger balloting nears

Posted on February 18, 2016 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — For the third time since 2005, residents of the five communities that make up Addison Northwest Supervisory Union will decide on March 1 if one board, not the current five, should run their four schools.

A yes vote on March 1 (Town Meeting Day) in all five towns would create the Addison Northwest Unified School District and a 12-member board to operate it, effective July 1, 2017, after a year of planning during which the existing ANwSU boards would still call the shots.

State budget features $68M gap

Posted on February 18, 2016 |
By John Flowers



VERGENNES — State lawmakers and Gov. Peter Shumlin are trying to resolve a $68 million revenue shortfall in the fiscal year 2017 general fund budget. While state politicians agree on the magnitude of the financial problem, it’s clear that there is far from consensus on how to mop up the red ink.

Rep. Diane Lanpher, D-Vergennes, provided an update on the fiscal year 2017 budget at Monday’s legislative breakfast in Vergennes. Lanpher is a member of the House Appropriations Committee, which considers funding requests for state agencies and programs.
