Letter to the Editor: Hospital union best for patients

Posted on March 23, 2017 |
By Desiree Roberts



As a lifelong resident of Addison and Chittenden counties, I am writing to you in support of the LNA’s fight to unionize at the UVM Medical Center. Not only do I believe in unions, and the combined power of the labor force to fight for their own rights and needs, I believe that without a union to negotiate over safe staffing, wages and working conditions it ultimately leads to harm of the patients that rely on UVM medical network.

Letter to the Editor: Snow removal rapped, defended

Posted on March 23, 2017 |
By Robert Deeble and Bill Kernan



Last Thursday I went to pay my property tax at the Middlebury town offices. I had to park by the Post Office so I had the opportunity to walk the entire length of downtown Middlebury. The sidewalks were plowed, but entirely covered with hard packed snow with mounds of snow lining Main Street making for a dangerous walking situation unless you were wearing ice grippers on your boots. I walked past Autumn Gold Jewelry. Across the street on the second floor was the apartment I lived in from 1972-73.

Letter to the Editor: Helen Porter fills vital niche in health care provision

Posted on March 23, 2017 |
By Rev. Lucy C.B. Pellegrini



As a resident of Addison County since 1975, I have a great deal of respect for the many medical practices and practitioners in Addison County. From the expertise and care of the private, single doctor offices that have evolved into a larger Porter Medical Center system, the standard of compassionate care and professionalism has been exceptionally high. That evolution and the years of innovation were not without struggle and pain. Practices, staff and patients have been challenged by insurances, management decisions, changes in diagnoses, technology and high costs.
