Community Forum, Mike Smith: Flawed policy exposes Vt. Public Safety Dept.

Posted on August 24, 2017 |
By Mike Smith



The Vermont Department of Public Safety has earned two reputations of late — one good and the other bad.

First, the good reputation: The department recruits and employs dedicated public servants who are willing to put themselves in harm’s way to protect us. Every Vermonter should be grateful for their service.

Politically Thinking, Eric L. Davis: After Trump's term, can the nation recover?

Posted on August 24, 2017 |
By Eric Davis



Donald Trump considers himself a “man of destiny,” and, in his mind, being elected president validates this belief. Trump has also claimed that he is more “presidential” than all previous occupants of the office except Abraham Lincoln.

Letters to the Editor: Flag flown by a visiting relative

Posted on August 24, 2017 |
By Frank Nicosia and Ellen Oxfeld



We were horrified to learn that two Confederate flags were seen flying in Middlebury last week. This flag is a symbol of white supremacy that that disgusts us and sows pain and fear among many of us. Its display hurt several fellow community members who passed by.

Letters to the Editor: Confederate flag a painful symbol

Posted on August 24, 2017 |
By Beatrice Parwatikar



I agree with the man in your story last Thursday who said he has the right to fly any flag he wishes and the flag only means the “Dukes of Hazzard” to him. He can have that thought because he is a white man and he can have that innocent attachment to the Confederate flag. Yet, the other man in the story recalls a painful memory and he now feels he must have the race conversation with his children about being a child of color in the U.S.

Community Forum, Dennis Wygmans: Value of seatbelts underscored

Posted on August 24, 2017 |
By Dennis Wygmans



By Dennis Wygmans, Addison County State’s Attorney

I write to you today out of a grave concern for public safety, both here in Addison County and across Vermont. Since taking office as Addison County State’s Attorney in January of this year, I am aware of an alarming number of cases where drivers operated their vehicles at speeds well in excess of 80 mph on roads here in Addison County. Also, since January, our office has experienced a sharp increase in the number of cases involving impaired drivers.

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.
