Letter to the editor: Bristol candidate smart, thoughtful

Posted on March 2, 2017 |
By Dennis L. Krampetz



I’m writing to voice my support for Lance Laliberte’s candidacy for selectboard in the town of Bristol.

I’ve known Lance for over ten years and in that time he’s impressed me as an intelligent, thoughtful individual. In any important discussion we’ve had, Lance has taken the time to consider multiple viewpoints before reaching any conclusion. This is exactly what I’m looking for in one of my elected officials.

Please join me in supporting Lance and his fresh ideas on Election Day.

Letter to the editor: Benton's 'good job' merits votes

Posted on March 2, 2017 |
By Vaughn T. Collins



Bill Benton has done a great job as Vergennes mayor and he has earned another term.

I first met Bill Benton back in the 1980s during a town planning event called “Finding Vergennes.” After two days of meetings and visioning exercises our group came up with a list of ways to leverage and improve the beautiful village of Vergennes. Now 30 years later, Mayor Bill Benton has been working hard as mayor to finally implement some of those ideas such as improved riverfront, better parks, and stronger government.

Letter to the editor: What about Obama deportations?

Posted on March 2, 2017 |
By Tony Bates



According to ABC News, the Huffington Post and the Department of Homeland Security, 2.7 million illegal aliens were deported during Obama’s eight years in office. 56 percent had no criminal record. That is, on average, 924 men, women and children deported per day, every day, for eight years. My question: Where were the protestors?

Editorial: The media's retort to Trump is not what you expected

Posted on February 27, 2017 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



At a New England-wide newspaper conference in Boston this past weekend, one 90-minute forum featured a panel of five national journalists debating how the press should respond to Trump’s attacks on the fifth estate.

It was not what most Americans would think liberal New England media elites would be saying, even after Trump has spent the past week trying to discredit the media’s work. No, the press was anything but vindictive, nor cowed, but rather questioning and second-guessing the fairness of their coverage. As ever, we are our harshest critics.
