Opinion: Bruhl would bring optimism

Posted on October 6, 2016 |
By Erin Ruble



Taborri Bruhl is running for Vermont House for the district of New Haven, Bridport and Weybridge. I’ve had the chance to hear him speak on a couple of occasions now, and I’ve been impressed with his background, his thoughtfulness, and most of all, his optimism that we can actually do something about the problems that surround us.

Opinion: Ayer helped businessman cut through red tape

Posted on October 6, 2016 |
By Carl Roesch



Sen. Claire Ayer has been an invaluable help to me as an owner of a restaurant in Middlebury. Due to my status as a permanent legal resident, I was unable to apply for a liquor license in the state of Vermont because of a bill that had been in place since prohibition, which only allows U.S. citizens to hold liquor licenses.

Sen. Ayer had caught wind of my plight and immediately began working on having the bill changed to allow permanent residents like myself the opportunity to apply for liquor licenses in order to grow their businesses.

Opinion: ANeSU governance plan would reduce local control

Posted on October 6, 2016 |
By Alice Leeds



I will vote no on the ANESU ACT 46 Proposal on Nov. 8. Here’s why: Tax savings will be minimal and short-term, and they will be offset by an increase in our statewide education tax. Direct community input will be reduced when a single 13-member board is responsible for all six ANESU schools. It will be far more difficult for this large single board to closely consider the needs of each individual school.

Opinion: Clark touted for high bailiff

Posted on October 6, 2016 |
By Sergeant Peter Newton



First, I am asking all Addison County voters to please re-elect Charles Clark to the office of High Bailiff on Tuesday, Nov. 8. I have known Captain Clark for well over 25 years, and have had the pleasure of working alongside him for the last five years. I also feel it is important to elect Captain Clark because he currently works for the Addison County Sheriff’s Department, and has for the last 33 years. Captain Clark has been the Chief Deputy for the last 30 years. I urge all my supporters to vote for Captain Clark.

Opinion: ACSD making bold moves

Posted on October 6, 2016 |
By Jason Duquette-Hoffman



Monday night, the newly formed unified Addison Central School District voted to deliver on what I believe to be its most important promise — a new, improved and inspiring vision for teaching and learning in our schools. To understand what it took to get here, we need to look back, before unification, before Act 46, to the process that began our collective thinking about how we can fundamentally do better by our kids, and by our community for the 21st century.

Opinion: Drivers: Activate signal before turning

Posted on October 6, 2016 |
By Peter Grant



It would be better if drivers used turn signals properly, which means turning them on before you turn. I keep having a car in front of me slow down with brake lights and wondering what are they about to do.

Can I pass them? Will they do whatever they want to do soon. Do I need to get out to help them?

No, they then start to turn, which answers the question. Then they turn on turn signals, as if that added anything.

Opinion: Addison-3 candidate seen as fiscally responsible

Posted on October 3, 2016 |
By Beverly Biello



Dear friends and neighbors in Addison 3: It’s time for an alternative to Diane Lanpher. As a 4-term incumbent and part of the Shumlin/Democrat machine for the last six years, Diane has consistently voted for increased taxes and unnecessary regulations, all of which are stifling our economy, making Vermont unaffordable for many and driving people out of Vermont (if they could sell their houses). For those of us who have had enough of Diane’s voting record, there is real hope of replacing her with a different woman — Monique Thurston.
