Editorial: Dems have better policy, but Gov. Scott holds trump card

Posted on June 14, 2018 |
By Angelo Lynn



It’s widely anticipated that Gov. Phil Scott will veto by Thursday evening (after this paper has gone to press) the Legislature’s recently proposed budget, just as he did the Legislature’s first budget proposal. In both instances, his rationale, that he won’t pass a budget that raises any new taxes, violates another tenet he used to endorse for the numerous years he served in the Legislature — not to use one-time money to temporarily postpone tax increases.

MIDDLEBURY — Despite the loss of a few starters from the summer of 2017 there are good reasons to think the 2018 Addison County American Legion baseball team could take a step forward from this past season’s six wins, possibly even doubling that total and moving into contention for one of four Northern Division playoff berths.

Matt Dickerson: Acadia National Park 3: The Gorham Loop

Posted on June 14, 2018 |
By Matt Dickerson



gorham-hike - 3.jpg

We pulled off the famous Loop Road to park at the trailhead to hike the Gorham Mountain Loop trail. Or, rather, we tried to park. Unfortunately, Memorial Day weekend had turned Acadia National Park into Acadia National Park-ing Lot. Not only did we find every lot full, but the right lane of the one-way, two-lane Loop Road had also been turned into additional parking, and for more than a mile in each direction every foot of pavement was taken by a car.
