Editorial: Dear Gov: Spread your passion

Posted on January 10, 2011 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



How will Gov. Peter Shumlin make up a $150 million budget deficit, grow jobs, initiate a renaissance in Vermont agriculture, improve educational outcomes, expand broadband to the last mile and reform the state’s health care system to stop double-digit cost increases year after year — and do it all without raising broad-based taxes?

Editorial: Middlebury's economic future: Keep status quo or be proactive

Posted on January 6, 2011 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



Middlebury residents have received a real bargain from town taxes during the past two years as taxpayers have benefited from the same level of services with no additional tax increases. Think of that. While food prices have gone up, health care has skyrocketed 20 to 30 percent, and most other expenses have seen inflationary hikes of 4 percent or more, town taxes held steady.

It is not surprising, then, to see a projected increase of 2.13 cents on the municipal tax rate in the draft budget, and possibly more if the select board or townspeople think additional town spending is beneficial.

Resolutions for the benefit of all

Posted on January 3, 2011 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



 

As we begin the New Year, let us — as Vermonters and residents of Addison County — resolve to:

• Redouble our individual efforts to give back to our state and communities, not in some vague notion of being a responsible citizen, but through specific actions to improve the lives of our neighbors or the betterment of the larger community.

Clippings: Happy greetings from a gruff codger

Posted on December 30, 2010 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



“Have a happy, happy!”

The emphasis was always on the second “happy” and it was said, back in the mid-’70s, by my climbing buddy’s dad. He loved saying it, as if it were his own contribution to the nation’s lexicon — “Have a happy, happy!”

It was a New Year’s Day greeting, of course, although Lou said it throughout the year whenever the mood struck him, which wasn’t, by the way, that often.

Editorial: A New Year's resolve

Posted on December 30, 2010 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



As America greets the New Year, we wonder if this nation has the collective resolve to true our wayward ship, to shake off the doldrums, renew our spirit of individual responsibility and regain our status as the inspirational leader in the world of new ideas.

To do that, we would first need to pay less heed to the naysayers, to honor those who seek to improve their communities and the common good — not those who benefit at the expense of others to the detriment of the national character and strength.

Governor-elect sets his priorities for term

Posted on December 23, 2010 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



MIDDLEBURY — Ask Gov.-elect Peter Shumlin what’s on his mind as he prepares to take over the reins of state government on Jan. 6, and he’ll tell you about tackling the biggest battles: getting broadband to every last mile in Vermont; getting health care costs under control; figuring out how to pay for the early education and corrections initiatives he proposed during the campaign; and reducing a projected $150 million deficit so he can balance the next state budget.

He’ll also tell you that none of it will be easy.

Editorial: A crossroads of good fortune

Posted on December 16, 2010 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



Middlebury could be poised for a resurgence in job growth with families moving back into town to fill vacant school desks, enliven athletic programs, create a need for home construction, fill stores with shoppers, prompt retail growth to meet local needs and infuse the community with the energy inherent in a town that has a vision for sustainable prosperity.

But, as in all things in business, such growth won’t happen without commitment and a willingness to invest.

Editorial: Smiling while you shop?

Posted on December 13, 2010 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



As these 12 days before Christmas loom before us — family is coming, there are meals to prepare and presents yet to buy — remember to relax and enjoy the rich traditions of this holiday season that make it so worthwhile.
The holiday focus in Middlebury — as in Brandon, Bristol and Vergennes — is about community festivals, contributing to several wonderful community causes, listening to chorus groups ring in the season with bells and beautiful voices, and for many it is a season for worship and reflection.

Editorial: Did Obama cave or score?

Posted on December 9, 2010 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



Did President Barack Obama cave in to Republican leaders when he didn’t need to? Would it not have been better for Democrats to let the tax cuts expire on Dec. 31 — along with unemployment insurance for 2 million jobless Americans — and then watch to see if House Republicans would continue to push tax cuts for millionaires, while the unemployed went hungry and tens of millions of middle-class Americans contemplate tax increases?

Editorial: American exceptionalism, writ small via GOP's culture war

Posted on December 2, 2010 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



If you’re wondering why a few Republican leaders are pouncing on President Obama’s alleged dismissal of “American exceptionalism,” it’s mostly politics, not substance. These would-be presidential hopefuls are suggesting that Obama is undermining American values in an attempt to smear his reputation among voters. The hope is that Americans will turn against the president not because of what he will have accomplished or believes, but by how Republicans characterize his views as “un-American.”
It is, in short, another shameful episode of the ‘culture wars’ waged by the Republican Party.
