Clippings: It's a horse race, and it's ours to win

Posted on May 21, 2015 |
By Angelo Lynn



It’s Middlebury, Vt., vs. Bar Harbor, Maine, and it’s neck and neck.

The race is all about the sense of place and the stakes, as is usually the case in competition, is about … well, let’s just put it out there — it’s about pride and ego, and a bit of self-serving capitalism. OK, so we’re not out to save the world today. We’re not even appealing to our better selves. Rather, we’d just like to win.

Still, the satisfaction would be sweet and the stakes, while small, are suddenly worthwhile.

Middlebury has a parking shortage

Posted on May 21, 2015 |
By Betty Thurber



We have a jewel in the heart of downtown Middlebury, a parcel of land behind the library, which we can do whatever we wish with. It could be a river walk, condos, restaurants, playground, park, a beautiful entrance to Middlebury seen from the bridge. It could be a magnet, a focus, to bring people to the shops, museum, restaurants, library of our Main Street. New enterprises in this parcel would add to our grand list.

Rep. Fred Baser: First year in Legislature spawns hope

Posted on May 21, 2015 |
By Rep. Fred Baser R-Bristol



The 2015 legislative session has ended. At times it felt like a rodeo, full of surprises. I serve on the Commerce and Economic Development Committee. We passed six bills out of our committee that became law. All these bills either benefit consumers or advance our state economy. My committee efforts were among the most satisfying times of the session.

Students weren’t coached on content of their letters

Posted on May 21, 2015 |
By Addison Independent



We’d like to start off by thanking Mr. O’Neil for his response (Addison Independent, May 4) to our students, who had submitted letters to the editor about racial profiling. In doing so, he showed our students that, although they are adolescents, they can initiate important conversations about issues that are facing their world, that their voices do matter and that their voices will be heard if they speak out for what they believe in.

Opinion: Early education prevents drama in the classroom

Posted on May 18, 2015 |
By Patricia Heather-Lea



Dear Mount Abraham Union High School board members,

I read this headline in the May 7 edition of the Addison County Independent: “Juvenile cases flood court system. County officials say opiate addiction, troubled families cause caseload to spike.”

How much does it cost to “fix” these problems?

Opinion: Middlebury airport affects everybody

Posted on May 18, 2015 |
By Joyce Howard



In the interest of a balanced discussion regarding the airport in East Middlebury, I would like to make a few comments.

This is not just about East Middlebury; the airport serves all of Addison County and some of Rutland County, too.

Clippings: Defeated by computers yet again

Posted on May 14, 2015 |
By John McCright



I may have a somewhat unhealthy relationship with computers. I don’t know if it has anything to do with the fact that for seven years I worked for a magazine called PC Week, and before that I covered the information technology industry for the Boston Business Journal. In that work I uncovered information on these electronic beasties and exposed their vulnerabilities; perhaps now computers seek to turn the tables and expose mine.

Opinion: State must do more to create jobs, grow economy

Posted on May 14, 2015 |
By Steve Terry



I agree with your view that as the 2015 Legislature winds down that lawmakers and the governor must “hone in on just what is essential to Vermonters’ lives and what are the most pressing state priorities” (Angelo Lynn editorial, May 4).

From my perspective job growth and job creation is the most pressing priority for the state, and its future.

Eric Davis: Polls have failed on election front

Posted on May 14, 2015 |
By Eric Davis



There have been substantial differences between poll projections and election results in many nations in recent months.

Before last week’s British election, the consensus of all reputable pollsters was that the governing Conservative Party and the opposition Labour Party would each receive around 33 percent of the vote and between 260 and 290 seats in the House of Commons. The Conservatives ended up with 37 percent of the vote and 331 seats, compared with Labour’s 30 percent of the vote and 232 seats.
