Editorial: GOP faces risks if Supreme Court swings too far right

Posted on April 10, 2017 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



Swinging the Supreme Court to a conservative majority is an honor that solely belongs to Sen. Majority Mitch McConnell. He is the man who led the Republican charge to deny Judge Merrick Garland, a moderate judge based on his past jurisprudence. President Barrack Obama nominated Garland because he reflected mainstream views — not liberal or radical, not ultra conservative, but views the vast majority of Americans could embrace — even most Republicans.

Letter to the Editor: Energy answer: Less demand, more local, no NIMBY

Posted on April 10, 2017 |
By Anders Holm MD



As Jedi Master Yoda famously said, “Do or do not, there is no try.” Vermont would be well served to heed his words as it considers implementation of S.51, the bill to support Vermont’s goal of 90 percent renewable energy by year 2050. In the best of circumstances this is an ambitious goal and in the present bureaucratic mindset it is absolutely unattainable due to the current labyrinthine and anachronistic permitting and licensing process.

Editorial: ACSD’s 6th-grade query poses challenges, potential rewards

Posted on April 6, 2017 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



The Addison Central School District recently posed an interesting question and challenge to its seven district towns: What did those schools and communities think about moving sixth grade students out of their respective elementary schools and into the Middlebury Union Middle School? The proposal would create a larger middle school of three grades — sixth, seventh and eighth — but would diminish the number of students attending each elementary school.

Eric L. Davis: Work remains after budget adoption

Posted on April 6, 2017 |
By Eric Davis



Last week, the Vermont House passed the state budget for fiscal year 2018 by a near-unanimous vote. The Senate is likely to follow suit later this month. The Legislature appears on track for adjournment before May 15.

The House leadership — Democratic Speaker Mitzi Johnson and Republican Minority Leader Don Turner — both said they appreciated the bipartisan spirit in which the House approved the budget. The contrast between Montpelier and Washington in this regard could not be more profound.

Gregory Dennis: Finding the 'possible' in fossil fuel divestment

Posted on April 6, 2017 |
By Greg Dennis



The old saying goes that politics is the art of the possible.

Letter to the Editor: Reading effort, article praised

Posted on April 6, 2017 |
By Ray Hudson



What a fine article about Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library and Addison County Readers (Addison Independent, March 30). The Friends of Ilsley Public Library donated $22,000 to the program over the past 10 years.

This is just one of the ways the members of the Friends contribute to making this great library and this terrific community even greater. (That’s a lot of used books at $1 each and a lot of memberships that start at $5 each.) Yay, readers!
