Editorial: Dems have better policy, but Gov. Scott holds trump card

Posted on June 14, 2018 |
By Angelo Lynn



It’s widely anticipated that Gov. Phil Scott will veto by Thursday evening (after this paper has gone to press) the Legislature’s recently proposed budget, just as he did the Legislature’s first budget proposal. In both instances, his rationale, that he won’t pass a budget that raises any new taxes, violates another tenet he used to endorse for the numerous years he served in the Legislature — not to use one-time money to temporarily postpone tax increases.

Editorial: The hardship is already here; now, what will Middlebury do?

Posted on May 24, 2018 |

With the recent news of two more businesses closing in Middlebury’s downtown, in the immediate vicinity of the construction zone, when is it time to recognize that the hardship that had been predicted is real and must be addressed before more businesses close? There are, after all, two and a half more years of intense construction still to go.

Editorial: Gov. Scott's vetoes vs. leadership

Posted on May 24, 2018 |
By Angelo Lynn



The standoff between Gov. Phil Scott and the Vermont Legislature is seemingly over Scott’s campaign pledge not to pass any legislation that would raise more taxes. As a political sound-byte, that’s about as safe a proposition and campaign pledge any politician could make. But if maintaining a pledge to not raise taxes also means the governor will do nothing to address fundamental problems facing the state, is that the kind of leadership that helps or hurts?

Editorial: Cornwall church's plight is the town's plight as well

Posted on May 17, 2018 |
By Angelo Lynn



The plight of the First Congregational Church in Cornwall should send warning signals throughout the county’s rural towns. Dwindling rural populations and a declining interest in religious services by younger generations has led to smaller congregations — sometimes so small that the closing of a church becomes a likelihood.

Editorial: Rep. Welch slams farm bill

Posted on May 17, 2018 |

Republicans in Congress said the tax cuts passed earlier this year would do great things for the economy and help individual Americans. While most Americans were opposed to it, Republicans nonetheless claimed it to be a huge accomplishment, and told us just to wait to see all the good that would come from it.

Editorial: Gov. Scott's line in the sand

Posted on May 14, 2018 |
By Angelo Lynn



Gov. Phil Scott’s line-in-the-sand mantra not to raise a single tax or a single fee has made politics in Vermont’s capital more strident, divisive and unruly. The irony is that the governor himself is mild-mannered, affable, pragmatic and someone who seems to get along with almost everyone.

But in this session he has become an ideologue who cleaves so closely to this one over-riding concern, that he has become unreasonable and close-minded.

Editorial: Governor Scott is spot on

Posted on April 12, 2018 |
By Angelo Lynn



As Gov. Phil Scott courageously held a very public signing of three gun control measures that increase oversight and inspection but only modestly restrict gun access, gun right hecklers called him “traitor” and booed at the mention of his administration also allocating $5 million for school safety.

Scott turned on those hecklers, confronting them directly: “If you want to boo on that, go ahead and boo.”

Editorial: China rises as Trump falls

Posted on April 12, 2018 |

Will Trump fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller? Can he? Or will Trump fire Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein so his successor can fire Mueller, as Rosenstein, a Republican appointed by Trump, has said he wouldn’t fire Mueller, another Republican, even if his boss, Trump, asked him. Would the obsequious Attorney General Jeff Sessions be allowed to stay? More importantly, will Robert Cohen, Trump’s fixer and one of his personal attorneys, take the fall for his boss or will he squeal in exchange for leniency?

Editorial: How Middlebury's Climate Initiative will make you richer

Posted on September 11, 2017 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



A week from Monday, on Sept. 18, residents of the greater-Middlebury area will kick-off a discussion on how to transform our communities to improve energy sustainability, reduce energy costs, and, to quote Jon Copans, “to strengthen the community and model state-of-the-art rural development in an age of climate change.” Copans is Vermont Council of Rural Development’s Program Director and is the guy responsible for bringing this opportunity to Middlebury.
