Posted on November 30, 2015 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



As Addison County residents, and Vermonters across the state, ponder the pros and cons of consolidating school governance, everyone agrees on one point: the focus should be on the students; more specifically, the benefits from implementing the proposed changes should ultimately lead to better outcomes for students.

It’s not easy, however, to determine which factors lead to better outcomes.

Editorial: The wrong-headed appeal to using force on ISIS

Posted on November 23, 2015 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



It is no secret that using military force against the Islamic State, or ISIS, in the wake of the Paris attacks holds a prevailing appeal to a majority of Republicans. They like a president who takes charge of the situation, hits them with “shock and awe” and says, in effect, “Here, take that, and don’t do it again or we’ll hit you harder.”

Editorial: Disconnect between solar industry, neighbors widents

By Angelo S. Lynn



Put yourself in this scenario: Two years ago you buy a home in rural Addison County with scenic views to the west overlooking farm land to the Adirondacks. You buy in Vermont because you value its traditions of local control and its emphasis on maintaining an environmental and scenic aesthetic.

Editorial: Finding favor with Act 46

Posted on November 12, 2015 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



Even as two of Vermont’s five current gubernatorial candidates call for the repeal of Act 46, schools and towns are steadily embracing the state’s new school governance law with some success and even enthusiasm, while other towns are beginning to understand the subtleties inherent in the law that allow for flexibility.

Editorial: Porter's first job is to serve the public, which is no easy task

Posted on November 9, 2015 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



Just like it is the job of unions to defend their members, it is the job of the administration to keep its core institution strong in the face of hardship. For Porter and many other smaller hospitals, these are trying times where many are facing financial risk.

While everyone can sympathize with the nurses’ union argument that health care benefits (particularly at a hospital) should not be cut, once you know the details of the rest of the story you can understand Porter’s explanation as well.

It’s that time of the year and my wife and I got up a bit earlier than usual Wednesday morning and headed out to the Dead Creek Wildlife Management Area in Addison to see the snow geese. While the numbers don’t rival the 10,000-plus birds the area used to attract a couple of decades ago, there are currently 2,000-plus geese in the area this week, according to recent reports, including many just feet from the viewing area when we visited.

Posted on October 26, 2015 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



The Addison County Regional Planning Commission recently crafted suggested language for siting and screening standards for solar projects to insert into any community’s town plan. It is stellar work that is worthy as a statewide standard.

 The commission created two draft documents that set the parameters for appropriate siting and screening standards, and couch it in language that the Public Service Board and developers must address.

Editorial: Doomed to repeat mistakes?

Posted on October 19, 2015 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



Chalk up the muscular tone on the campaign trail concerning foreign policy to two factors: it’s campaign season and candidates don’t want to appear weak in the face of Russian aggression and, two, too many have forgotten the nation’s recent history or never learned it well.
