Opinion: Money behind climate skeptics

I see, by the letter in the May 12 Addy Indy, that there are some in Vermont who still believe the coal/oil industry propaganda that there is no global warming.

Opinion: Act 46 could use more coverage

Posted on May 12, 2016 |
By Peter Grant



At the meeting in Bristol last night over Act 46, it seems that there are a lot of questions about what it means.

One question concerned towns voting not to join the new and improved school districts. Seems the Legislature made the law a “take it or we will do it for you” system. Which left one open question, among many, and that was about a town dropping out of the district, like Huntington. Well, Huntington is in an area that modern news media doesn’t really cover, since we no longer have a regional/state paper.

Opinion: Canadian friends invite me to move north

Posted on March 10, 2016 |
By Peter Grant



Canadian friends are inviting me to move to Canada before Trump has a wall built, paid for by Canada.

No one has asked how Trump will force Mexico to build a wall. How many bombs will it take before Trump realizes that Mexico can’t afford to restrain its criminals, much less pay for a wall? Does Trump think before engaging his mouth?

I remember when people around the world were laughing with puzzlement when Reagan was elected back in 1980.

Opinion: Drawbridges an excellent idea

Posted on March 3, 2016 |
By Peter Grant



What happened to the suggestion in a recent letter to the Independent for drawbridges?

An excellent idea. The sides of the trench might need work but the tracks would not need lowering. The bridges need replacing anyway, so why not with drawbridges?

Opinion: Scalia, Congress paid only lip service to Constitution

Posted on February 18, 2016 |
By Peter Grant



Scalia was known to be strictly for interpreting the Constitution as it was originally intended. But we have seen that he ignored that rule with bad consequences. Scalia and Supreme Court crew appointed Bush as president. He had no authority under the Constitution to do this and the Constitution has strict rules for making a new president.

Opinion: Philosophical musings enjoyed

Posted on October 29, 2015 |
By Peter Grant



I want to thank the Addison Independent for printing Professor Victor Nuovos articles on Socrates.

I find that Socrates probably really existed and was not just the imagination of Plato, who did a lot of the writing about Socrates.

Tiki Tom and friend

Green God Bristol beatcmyk DSCF5124.jpg

HILDGUND SCHAEFER, LEFT, and Peter Grant (not shown) were having a nice walk in the Bristol area recently when they came across this Green God. Is it a form of Moai like the giant statues of Easter Island with its Aku Aku spirits? Maybe it is trying to hold back the invasion of Japanese knotweed. The name on the back is Tiki Tom, perhaps a reference to Thor Heyerdahl, who discovered the Moai many years ago.

Opinion: Apples have lost their true flavor

Posted on May 13, 2015 |
By Peter Grant



Why can’t we get apples as good as I got 60 years ago?

When I was a little younger I could get a bag of 2-inch Macs and eat great apples. These apples were ripe and soft and juicy and they were sold even in the spring.

Opinion: Students' articles should have been better researched

Posted on April 23, 2015 |
By Peter Grant



Your pullout section, “The Bird’s Eye View,” has articles that need a lot more research before printing.

I hope other students at Mount Abraham Union High School can fill in the gap.

One article was on gun control and it seems the only research done for it was borrowing only from the NRA.

We all know that the NRA is in the business of helping sell guns and is not concerned about deaths caused by them.
