Guest Editorial: A message behind Shumlin’s pledge of no new taxes?

Posted on December 17, 2012 |
By Emerson Lynn



When House Democrats gathered a week ago in a pre-session caucus the outlines of a new legislative session began to take shape. This is when legislators and their leaders being to share their thoughts of what could be.

And it’s the governor who will find himself the person responsible for applying the brake more than the accelerator.

Posted on December 6, 2012 |

When Middlebury College President Ron Liebowitz sent out an all-campus email earlier this week to say the college would take steps to consider divesting its $900 million endowment of stock in fossil fuel companies — about $32 million of which is invested in that industry — he joined the vanguard of a growing movement that is trying to put climate change back in the forefront of the national political agenda.

Editorial: Treatment center good fit for the county

Vergennes residents might initially be wary that a 19-bed residential treatment facility for young women who are battling drug addiction and/or “self-injury behaviors” might soon occupy the former Briarwood Manor nursing home in Vergennes, but initial reports look promising and we think area residents will be comforted as they learn more about the operation and its plans.

By Reed Prescott



When I look out across the economic horizon I feel concerned. The issues are so huge and advice so plentiful I hardly feel there is hope for change. Then I pull back and say “I’m not going to take in all the issue but what do I have control over today that in some small way has a positive impact?”

Guest editorial: Gov. Shumlin faces key decision on education

Posted on November 19, 2012 |
By Emerson Lynn



To Mr. Shumlin:

If we could add 25 million post-secondary educated students to the workforce by 2025, the boost to the nation’s Gross Domestic Product would be $500 billion annually, according to a Georgetown University study.
