Opinion: Paid sick leave is fair for workers

Posted on January 28, 2016 |
By Richard Hollenbeck



I am writing to express my support for paid sick days for all workers in Vermont.

There are nearly 100,000 Vermonters who don’t receive any paid sick leave. People need a minimum standard of earned leave to use to take care of their own health and the health of their families. If I’m ill and go into work, how many people do I feasibly infect in a day? Sixty?

MIDDLEBURY — Christina Frost of Middlebury acknowledges she could have followed a more conventional blueprint for her life.

But an early pregnancy and the desire to escape a household rife with substance abuse sent her on a circuitous path that, at age 27, is finally leading her to a happy, healthy family of her own; an education; and the prospect of a job in social work, through which she hopes to help others avoid some of her missteps.

Opinion: The aesthetics of solar siting must be taken seriously

Posted on January 28, 2016 |
By Merle Schloff



I am writing in response to Gregg Beldock’s Community Forum column on the siting of solar fields (“Solar helps farmers, creates jobs,” Jan. 18, 2016).

What’s wrong with a pig farm if it doesn’t stink?

It’s not just a rhetorical question for me, for I am the owner of the property with what I feel is the ugliest solar field on the Route 7 solar corridor.

Opinion: It's time to make college affordable

Posted on January 28, 2016 |
By Sen. Patrick Leahy



As Vermont’s college students return from the winter break and begin their spring semesters, college costs continue to weigh heavily on their minds and on their pocketbooks. The price of a college education has steadily grown to become both a personal financial hardship for them and their families, and an emerging national crisis, and we need to tackle it. No student should ever be denied a higher education simply because of a lack of financial ability. That is not how we prepare the next generation to lead our country in the global marketplace.

MIDDLEBURY — In a Tuesday battle of two improving high school boys’ basketball teams played before an energized crowd, including many costumed and noisy students rooting for host Middlebury, visiting Vergennes outlasted MUHS, 55-50.

The 7-9 Commodores, now winners of six of their past nine games, led almost wire-to-wire but had to respond to repeated challenges from the 3-11 Tigers, who had won two of their past three and were coming off a big home win over 7-8 Milton.

VERGENNES — The Vergennes Union High School wrestling team finished seventh out of 24 teams on Saturday at its own Bob Benoure Invitational Tournament, an effort highlighted by another victory by junior 182-pound wrestler Brandon Cousino.

Cousino won the crown with a 3-0 record, preserving his undefeated season, and earned the coaches’ nod as the event’s outstanding wrestler. The coaches also voted Cousino’s championship bout with Caleb Lomme of Hollis Brookline (N.H.) as the tournament’s most entertaining.
