Vermont Progressives and liberal Democrats should tread cautiously in their reaction to Gov. Peter Shumlin’s budget address this past Thursday lest they open a political divide between themselves and the vast majority of Vermonters. The danger is that would be perceived as too far left of the mainstream, as the Tea Party is perceived to be too far right, and their political clout compromised.

Dear NRA member,
MIDDLEBURY — May Mantell, a visiting professor of studio art at Middlebury College, this Wednesday will speak about the current exhibit at Middlebury’s Museum of Art — “Black, White, and Beautiful.” Mantell guest-curated the exhibit in conjunction with her January-term course “Introduction to Black and White Photography.”
The criteria for the exhibit were two: that they be exceptionally beautifully crafted silver prints and that they be meaningful works of art made by significant artists.
The calls come in all winter, said Paul DeBow of DeBow Wildlife Service in Plymouth, N.H. If there is no snow, the peak will be in January or February, when it’s the coldest. Some people think the animals they hear partying in the attic are chipmunks, he says. Chipmunks in the attic in the middle of winter. But they are not.
Chipmunks, DeBow explained, hibernate in winter and what homeowners are probably hearing are flying squirrels. Because flying squirrels are nocturnal, few people ever see them.
Governor Peter Shumlin presented the following remarks on the budget today at 2 p.m.
Mr. President, Mr. Speaker, members of the General Assembly, distinguished guests, and fellow Vermonters:
Two years ago, I delivered my first budget address. Times were tough. We faced a budget gap of $176 million and together we made painful choices.
