Editorial: Do this exercise to help you choose the best candidate

Posted on October 25, 2018 |
By Angelo Lynn



As voters contemplate which candidates to support in the General Election on Nov. 6, we want to first thank all candidates in Addison County races for answering our series of questions for publication. It’s not easy boiling down one’s thoughts to a 350-to-500-word answer on complicated questions (for state Senate candidates) or 100-word answers on seven questions for House candidates. That effort — on their part and ours — is all to provide our readers and prospective voters with a firm foundation from which to make a more educated decision.

Editorial: 'Deficits? Nonsense. Tax cuts will be so great, it'll never happen.'

Posted on October 18, 2018 |
By Angelo Lynn



The U.S. Treasury Department announced this week that the federal deficit jumped a whopping 17 percent this past year, posting a deficit of $779 billion. That’s an increase of $113 billion over the $666 billion recorded in 2017, and it puts the deficit on pace to top $1 trillion annually before the next presidential election. Such a pronouncement used to shock Republicans out of their wits.

The Treasury’s own analysis suggest the rapid rise in the deficit has been caused by the $1.5 trillion tax cuts passed by Trump and the Republican Congress.

Editorial: A step closer to depravity

Posted on October 18, 2018 |
By Angelo Lynn



When President Trump first tries to cover up the blatant killing and gruesome dismemberment of a journalist critical of the Saudi government and then, when denial isn’t plausible, tries to pretend it wasn’t carried out under the orders of Saudi Arabia’s effective ruler, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman but by rogue killers with the government, he moves America one step closer to the depravity demonstrated by the worst kind of dictatorial governments.

The new backcountry hut recently built at Chittenden Brook campground on the east side of Brandon Gap is more than a story about a few hikers and backcountry skiers wanting a comfortable shelter in which to camp. It’s a story about a new kind of tourism that could boost the area’s economy.

Editorial: Canada, trade pacts, dairy and Trump's histrionics

Posted on October 4, 2018 |
By Angelo Lynn



During an imagined press briefing of the recently revised North American Free Trade Agreement (Nafta) between Canada, Mexico and the U.S., Trump stood with Canadian Premier Trudeau at the podium, when a frenetic American reporter raised her hand to ask excitedly: “I hear it’s the best deal ever! Please tell me, do we get Trudeau?!”

Now, that would be a great deal, even if it were tagged with the phonetically challenged USMCA.

But, no, it didn’t happen. We don’t get Trudeau.

Editorial: Brett Kavanaugh: Just another festering wound

Posted on October 1, 2018 |
By Angelo Lynn



Last week, the nation’s attention was focused almost wholly on the allegations against U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh that he sexually assaulted Christine Blasey Ford when in high school. The allegations came about because Kavanaugh had presented himself as a “choir boy” while in high school and college — a statement that drew howls of refute from classmates and others who knew him as a heavy drinker and far less than the saint he portrayed himself to be.
