Opinion: Closing the Diversified Occupations program doesn't make any sense

Posted on December 3, 2015 |
By Rebecca Holmes



I don’t understand why there is any discussion about closing the Diversified Occupations (DO) program. Let me state first that I have no “stake” in DO. I’m not a parent, a former student, a teacher or a service professional with connections to the program, nor do I have friends who work there. I was an itinerant ESL teacher for the district for about 10 years, however, and I saw students consistently succeed, often beyond what I would have thought possible, and I still see that success everywhere I go in the community.

Opinion: 'Older white men' are doing a lot of complaining

Posted on December 3, 2015 |
By Stephen Harris



I am having difficulty understanding the rage that seems to be springingfrom older white men in America. Let me start by admitting that I am one, so my perplexity is based on my 65 years of direct experience. My confusion grows when none of the truly furious can directly answer the simple question, What are you so angry about?

Opinion: Honest act was heartwarming

Posted on December 3, 2015 |
By Barbara Cheney



On Saturday, Nov. 14, I was shopping at Hannaford’s in Middlebury in preparation for family coming to town. I was preparing to have open heart surgery on Nov. 19.

After making my purchase, I was in the parking lot when a gentleman came running up to me. At first I was startled. You can imagine my surprise when he said, “Ma’am, you dropped this.” He handed over a $50 bill, which I had dropped in the store.

Opinion: Sick leave bill merits support

Posted on December 3, 2015 |
By Carol Hulett



 I am a strong supporter of the paid sick leave bill. I urge my senators to please pass the Healthy Workplaces bill, H.187, to make paid sick days a reality for nearly all Vermonters.

I’m from Chittenden County and just moved to Bristol. I worked at the Walmart in Williston for 14-and-a-half years. Pay was $5.75 at first, then they raised it a bit when we complained. I only earned two paid sick days a year. However, you would only get paid for the first sick day after you used the second one, so you were always a bit behind.

Posted on December 3, 2015 |
By JoAn Canning

• Lead students to achieve or exceed the state’s Education Quality Standards.
