Editorial: Trump's troubles over wall a harbinger of politics in 2019

Posted on January 10, 2019 |
By Angelo Lynn



Just 16 hours after Trump’s prime-time speech from the Oval Office urging support for his border wall fell flat Tuesday night, news organizations reported he slammed his hand down on the table and walked out of a Wednesday afternoon meeting with Democratic congressional leaders declaring angrily that trying to negotiate was a “waste of time.”

Guest editorial: Backing the right to know

Posted on January 7, 2019 |
By Caledonia Record



Burlington Police Chief Brandon Del Pozo refuses to identify a driver who hit and killed a pedestrian in the North End earlier this month.

The Chief says the driver won’t be charged with a crime; was traumatized by the accident; is as much of a victim as the dead pedestrian; and (as such) is deserving of sensitivity.

“… We decided to withhold his name both as a matter of compassion and under the provisions in Vermont law that require taking steps to protect the identity of victims and witnesses,” Del Pozo wrote on Facebook.

Editorial: Bristol's rocky road with Vermont Gas

Posted on December 31, 2018 |
By Angelo Lynn



When Vermont Gas laid out its plans to extend natural gas service to Middlebury, with offshoots to Vergennes and Bristol, it seemed like the natural order of how things would pan out. The state mandate to Vermont Gas, as a utility with a monopoly on natural gas transmission, is to extend natural gas to as many Vermonters as possible while not sending costs to its customers soaring.

Guest editorial: As rural economies go in the nation, so goes Vermont

Posted on December 27, 2018 |
By David Moats



Economic stagnation in Vermont is not new. For decades, it has defied the efforts of political leaders, Republican and Democrat, to solve it.

What’s new is a growing awareness that the problem is a widespread condition, animating protests from Paris to London, from Oklahoma to Arizona, West Virginia to Vermont.

Guest editorial: Merry Christmas

Posted on December 24, 2018 |
By Emerson Lynn



We stare at our children and envy their lightness of being, like snowflakes swept along the hard edge of winter’s breath. They are spared the cares that shadow our lives. Their orbits are drawn with the truest and most elegant of lines; you are their center, and they yours.

Guest editorial: Signs of hope — in politics?

Posted on December 17, 2018 |
By Lee H. Hamilton



Call me a contrarian. Or even a Pollyanna. But when everyone around me is filled with gloom and despair, seeing dire portents in every political headline, I try to find trends that encourage me.

And I’m finding them. It could be that my hopes outrun the realities. But I’m guardedly optimistic that’s not the case.
If there’s a single theme that ties them together, it seems to me that many people are beginning to view government with greater realism as to what it can do about improving the quality of life of our people.

Editorial: Farm Bill passage lauded; inequitable loophole exposed

Posted on December 12, 2018 |
By Angelo Lynn



Vermont’s congressional delegation lined up in support of a compromise $867 billion Farm Bill passed overwhelmingly by the U.S. House and Senate earlier this week. The House approved the bill 386-47; the Senate approved it 87-13.
