That Greg’s Meat Market will still be Greg’s even without Greg Wry walking the grocery aisles is testament to the strength of a good business and of the loyal following he created.

Politics of $1 million in aid

Posted on December 7, 2009 |
By Angelo Lynn



Last week, area and state legislators sent a letter to Gov. James Douglas recommending that the state set aside up to $1 million of the $8.67 million federal economic stimulus money to help Addison County businesses affected by the closing of the Champlain Bridge. The initiative was spearheaded by Senate President Pro Tempore Peter Shumlin, D-Putney, and House Speaker Hap Smith, D-Morristown, and though it had the support of most Addison County legislators, the proposal was laden with political overtones.

Editorial: Good speech; no good options

Posted on December 3, 2009 |
By Angelo Lynn



In listening to President Barack Obama outline his strategy for sending 30,000 more troops into Afghanistan on Tuesday night’s televised address, we found ourselves wanting to believe his rationale and his assessment, but what we recognized was that it was little more than a well-delivered political speech carefully calculated to cause the president the least amount of political damage.

That was a disappointment.

Missing the mark in Vermont

Posted on November 30, 2009 |
By Angelo Lynn



In the hubbub over the recent crackdown on employers hiring illegal migrant workers, the one statement that seems to define the situation in Vermont is that the hiring of migrant workers is not about cheap labor, it’s about hiring dependable labor in a market where no others are willing to do the work.

If Congress, the administration and the federal bureaucracy could tailor federal laws around that single premise, perhaps a workable immigration law (or amendment) that applies to dairy farms could be written and passed.

Clippings: 51 Main bridges town's generations

Posted on November 19, 2009 |
By Angelo Lynn



In business, it’s not always possible to achieve your mission the first year out of the block. But there’s evidence that 51 Main Street in Middlebury has come pretty close.

Roll back the clock with me to a scene there last April. It’s a cold, blustery Thursday night and one would have expected Middlebury’s Main Street to be quiet at the 8 o’clock hour.

This night, however, was different.

'Our country, right or wrong?' Critical thinking wouldn't hurt

Posted on November 16, 2009 |
By Angelo Lynn



Adding a personal story to the health care debate, Randolph Herald editor/publisher Dick Drysdale wrote the following editorial several weeks ago about a Randolph couple that had spent the summer in Canada and experienced that country’s health care system. It’s worth a read not because it tells us about the Canadian health care system, but because it reveals the shortcomings of our national bias.

Have a vision? Send it in

f you have a vision of how you would like Middlebury to grow over the next 10 to 20 years, now is the time to share your thoughts with town officials.

The Middlebury Planning Commission is starting a multi-year process of updating the town plan and it is seeking direction from town residents. “We feel that inviting more people to tell us what they think and having listened to more people, we will have a better plan and people will feel as if they’ve been heard,” Planning Commission Chairman John Barstow said in an Addison Independent story last Thursday.

PSB: How is Entergy's spin-off better for Vermont consumers?

Senate President Pro Temp Peter Shumlin and House Speaker Shap Smith are right to question the alleged benefits of allowing Entergy to spin off its Vermont Yankee nuclear power plant (and five others) into a separate holding company called Enexus. On the face of it, the spin-off does little more than free Entergy, a debt-free and profitable company, of future expense while creating a new company — loaded with debt — to shoulder the burden of decommissioning five aging nuclear plants in the not-so-distant future.

Finding the benefit to Vermont in such a deal is perplexing.
