Editorial: A consequence of incivility

Posted on January 6, 2014 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



Being vindictive has consequences. When a small cadre of Middlebury residents set out to discredit selectman Victor Nuovo for allegedly violating the town’s conflict of interest policies they did so in a relentless fashion — organizing a mean-spirited letter-writing campaign that attacked personal character as well as process. It has been beyond the pale.

Guest editorial: This year, let's resolve to be the change we want to see

Posted on January 2, 2014 |
By Deb Markowitz



This week’s writer is Deb Markowitz, secretary of the Vermont Agency of Natural Resources.

Last month, I met with a group of high school students who were thinking about what they could do in their schools and communities to help combat climate change. One of them asked whether what we do in Vermont to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions matters since climate change is a problem on a global scale. This caused another student to shout out the Mahatma Gandhi adage that we must “be the change we want to see in the world.”

By Calvin Coolidge

“Christmas is not a time or a season, but a state of mind.

To Cherish peace and good will, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas.

Editorial: A ray of hope within the GOP

Posted on December 16, 2013 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



In this season of hope, peace and understanding, it’s fitting that moderate Republicans in the U.S. House joined forces with Democrats this past Thursday to approve a two-year budget outline by 332-94. The 94 votes in opposition make up a large part of the Tea Party conservatives that have undermined mainstream Republican and Democratic agendas for the past four years.

Editorial: An issue for student input

Posted on December 5, 2013 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



The issue of whether to install security cameras in area schools tiptoes along a blurred line separating school safety and student privacy. It’s a current topic of debate at the UD-3 board concerning the Middlebury Union High School and, soon, the Middlebury Union Middle School.

What’s apparent in the quandary over where to locate a new recreational facility in Middlebury is that neither site is perfect, nor would any site likely be.

Editorial: State eyes tough sledding to balance 2015 budget

Posted on December 2, 2013 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



While we’ve discussing all things local in this column in recent weeks, there have been several substantial developments outside our immediate sphere that warrant inspection: the recommendation to increase the state education property tax base rate by 5 cents and Vermont House Speaker Shap Smith’s call to make ends meet this session by cutting spending and not increasing taxes.

The first two are intertwined and will have a substantial local impact in fiscal year 2015.

Editorial: A willful blindness?

Posted on November 25, 2013 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



Last week, about 200 people came out on a rainy Thursday night to watch Bess O’Brien’s documentary film “The Hungry Heart.” It is a moving and emotionally powerful 93-minute film on prescription drug and opiate addiction.

While the main meeting room in the Unitarian Universalist Society church in Middlebury was packed, it also means about 8,500 people in the Middlebury community were not there. That is expected, of course. No event draws all people.
