Posted on September 21, 2015 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



Vergennes residents have an exciting opportunity this coming Friday and Saturday to provide input on the future look of the downtown and how it connects with the Otter Creek basin. As part of a $87,000 grant-supported project, residents will witness how pedestrian and bike lanes would flow onto Main Street (Route 22A) and create a bike-friendly downtown, as well as make the traffic through town less imposing.

Opinion: 'Modest proposal' made for towns to host refugees

Posted on September 21, 2015 |
By John Burton



In response to Jon Isham’s generous offer to welcome Syrian refugees to Vermont, might I make a modest proposal.

1. Amend the Cornwall zoning regulations to accommodate more intense higher density land use development.

2. Remove the conservation easements on protected farmland.

3. Raise taxes to improve infrastructure (schools, places of religious worship, public transportation …).

Opinion: Adding years to dollars might help

Posted on September 21, 2015 |

Although it’s an opportunity to use the wisdom I’ve accumulated in a, shall we say, less physically demanding way and for my wife and me to be closer to our two adult sons, I won’t deny I’m very sad to be leaving the people and places I’ve grown to love so much.
