Editorial: So little can mean so much

Posted on December 8, 2011 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



Let’s be plain. According to the level of giving to date, the United Way campaign this year may fall short. One likely reason is that those who normally set aside funds for charitable giving may have doled out some of those funds to relief efforts in the aftermath of Tropical Storm Irene. Statewide, more than $1,894,331 million has been collected through the United Ways of Vermont for relief to Irene’s victims, of which $81,000 was raised through the United Way of Addison County.

Editorial: A political question to ponder

Posted on December 8, 2011 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



Here’s a political question to ponder. In a representative democracy, should a public board follow ‘majority rule’ or what might be called ‘plurality rule’?

More specifically, if town residents vote 60 percent to 40 percent against locating a gravel pit near town, should the governing body write rules that sort of prohibit the pit but allow some gravel extraction in a smaller corner of the proposed pit — taking the stated stance that “not everyone gets what they want,” so the board splits the difference?

Between the Lines: My music is a shelf full of memories

Posted on December 8, 2011 |
By Greg Dennis

Politically Thinking: GOP hopefuls will bypass Vermont

Posted on December 8, 2011 |
By Eric L. Davis



Vermont’s 2012 presidential primary will be held on Town Meeting Day, Tuesday, March 6. The Democratic primary will be uneventful, with President Obama running unopposed for renomination.
