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.

Editorial: Tourism and its return on investment

Posted on September 1, 2017 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



The state of New York recently released a report detailing how the state’s investment in tourism is paying big dividends. Rough numbers show that since 2011 the state invested $135 million in tourism expenses, and saw a return on investment (ROI) of about 25 percent — moving the total tourism revenue from about $80 billion to $105 billion.

Editorial: Harvey, Sandy and hypocrisy

Posted on August 31, 2017 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



As Americans across the nation reach out with sympathy to Texans reeling from Hurricane Harvey’s destruction, Congress has briefly united to pledge the full help of the federal government. Democrats were there solidly in support of their Republican colleagues in the solidly Republican state.

Editorial: One thing in which Trump excels

Posted on August 31, 2017 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



Trump continues to underperform in every presidential exercise except one: reversing regulations put in place by previous administrations that largely worked to the benefit of individual Americans. That he has done more than any other president in the first 200 days in office, is true only if the qualifier “to harm Americans” is added to his claim.

Guest Editorial: Did we laud good intentions during Clean Water Week?

Posted on August 28, 2017 |
By Lauren Hierl



This guest editorial is by Lauren Hierl, political director of Vermont Conservation Voters.

Governor Scott and the Vermont Agency of Natural Resources declared Aug. 20-27, “Clean Water Week” in Vermont. While I believe it is important to highlight the value of clean water, we have a lot of work to do to achieve clean water for all Vermonters.

It makes me wonder — what we were actually celebrating?

Editorial: Walls to divide, bridges to unite

Posted on August 24, 2017 |
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?
