Editorial: Walls to divide, bridges to unite

By Angelo S. Lynn



Walls to divide, or bridges to unite?

On the campaign trail, politicians of all stripes promise big things — but few were as boastful, wasteful and wrong-headed as “the Donald” was during his run-up to the Republican convention and throughout the general election. After his first eight months in office, he’s accomplished very little of what he championed — and for that the nation is all the better.

Editorial: Finding a balance with firearms, target practice, shooting ranges and the public's peace of mind

Posted on August 21, 2017 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



How safe is it shoot a firearm next to your neighbor’s house? What distance between homes, or what safety precautions should be taken, before it is appropriate to condone the practice? What common sense measures should be at the heart of this conversation, and what measures of mutual respect between those wanting to shoot their firearm and those concerned about noise and their peace of mind should be considered?

Editorial: Trump and his lemmings

Posted on August 14, 2017 |
By Angelo Lynn

Posted on August 10, 2017 |
By Angelo S. Lynn

Those issues affect the Mount Abraham Union school district, where building committee members have proposed a $35 million bond to renovate the high school; in Orwell, where that community has rejected merging with the Fair Haven Union School district under Act 46; and Middlebury taxpayers and patrons of Ilsley Library where board members have proposed a $9.6 million expansion.

Editorial: Trump’s distractions, Browder’s testimony and Putin’s kleptocracy

Posted on August 3, 2017 |
By Angelo Lynn



If you missed the Senate testimony by financier Bill Browder on July 27 about how Russian operatives use American “enablers to achieve major foreign policy goals without disclosing those interests,” you’re not alone.

Editorial: Party on! Making the most of it

Posted on August 3, 2017 |
By Angelo Lynn



This Wednesday night in downtown Middlebury — along with the continous noise of construction crews — stores stayed open late, people milled around to shop, eat a bag of popcorn, listen to live music and enjoy what promoters were calling a Downtown Block Party.

The idea was to demonstrate that downtown businesses were still open and eager for business and that despite ongoing construction, the downtown was still a fun place to frequent.

Editorial: Lack of GOP plan kills repeal; is fixing Obamacare the next step?

Posted on July 31, 2017 |
By Angelo Lynn



What Republicans hopefully learned last Friday, after its last-ditch effort to repeal ObamaCare failed in the Senate, is that just being opposed to policy isn’t enough. You have to also prepare a replacement policy that better serves the public.
