Politically Thinking: Progressive party losing its clout

Posted on October 14, 2010 |
By Eric L. Davis



Vermont’s Progressive Party may not be able to maintain its major party status for the 2011-12 biennium. State election law defines a “major political party” as one that has a local committee in at least 15 towns or cities, and has received at least 5 percent of the vote for one of the six statewide offices.

Major parties are allowed to nominate their candidates through primary elections. Several media organizations, such as Vermont Public Radio, also use major party status as the criterion for deciding which candidates to invite to participate in broadcast debates.

Between the Lines: 350.org and social media activism

Posted on October 14, 2010 |
By Gregory Dennis



Almost every day at Middlebury College, I receive an influx of e-mails announcing the latest environmental initiatives and encouraging students to make their voices heard.

Last weekend, climate change activism took the global stage by storm with the 10/10/10 Global Work Party organized by 350.org. The group inspired a groundbreaking 7,347 events across 188 countries. With such broad-based support, the case for change seems fairly clear: People are demanding a global transition towards a clean energy economy.

Trying to be fair to all is our challenge

Posted on October 14, 2010 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



Periodically, I remember it’s important to explain how we map out our sports coverage here.
For one thing, while some readers stick through thick and thin, a percentage of our sports section readership naturally turns over every few years as their daughters and sons move up onto the local high school varsity teams and then graduate. It’s part of the whole circle of life thing. An occasional refresher course is therefore a good idea.

Clippings: Graduation day arriving too soon

Posted on October 14, 2010 |
By John Flowers



I’m 48 and I’m not quite ready to graduate from high school.

No, I’m not a perennial flunk-out artist, nor am I an old-timer seeking to complete an education suspended years ago.

Rather, I am a parent of a high school senior — the last in our household — scheduled to earn his diploma next spring. The stark reality of that momentous occasion just dawned on me this month, and I selfishly wish graduation day weren’t so imminent.

STARKSBORO — Students at Robinson Elementary School will soon be more familiar with the workings of a photovoltaic solar array than the average energy consumer. Technicians recently installed on the Starksboro school’s property 25 solar arrays that will produce all of the power for both the school and the Starksboro town offices.

Leahy tries to secure health care waiver

Posted on October 11, 2010 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — U.S. Sen. Patrick Leahy, Vermont’s senior senator, said if re-elected next month he will continue to work to secure a waiver for Vermont to enact more sweeping health care reforms sooner than the 2017 timeline mandated under current federal law.

“The way the law is written almost begs for some areas of experimentation, provided you still have the basic health protections that were written into it,” the Middlesex Democrat said during a recent interview at the Addison Independent.

VUHS seniors go the distance for charity

Posted on October 11, 2010 |

MIDDLEBURY — As juniors at Vergennes Union High School spent three days last week taking NECAP standardized tests, and younger peers ventured off campus to visit colleges and explore careers with local businesses, VUHS seniors were acing what has become known within the school as “Assessment Week.”

For their part, seniors for the third straight year were testing their sense of community and charity — and by most accounts they were getting the highest of marks.
