Gov. Phil Scott delivers 2nd Inaugural Address

Posted on January 10, 2019 |
By Gov. Phil Scott



Phil Scott times 3.jpg

Here is Gov. Phil Scott’s Second Inaugural Address, delivered Thursday, Jan. 10, at the Vermont Statehouse in Montpelier.

In this speech, the Berlin Republican focused a large section of his speech on the trends of a Vermont workforce that is contracting and a student population that is shrinking even faster. He points out that no population growth has led to fewer working-age Vermonters — 15,000 fewer since 2009, he said. And he specifically pointed to the loss of 5 percent of the workforce in Addison County.

New FCC rule could hurt local access TV

Posted on January 10, 2019 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — Managers of Vermont’s cable access channels are warning that a new rule being pitched by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) could significantly affect their revenues to a point where some stations might have to pare back services significantly, or even close down.

If that happens it would certainly restrict the public’s ability to keep tabs on their local government.

MIDDLEBURY — Carol Spooner audited her first class at Middlebury College in the late 1980s. She sat in on an eight-person seminar course in the Religion Department about the bible and the environment.

Spooner, who graduated from the college in 1950, called up Professor Robert Schine and got permission to take the class. Since then, Spooner, 90, has audited roughly one class per semester on subjects including music theory, Chinese film, the Middle East and environmental studies. After she married her husband, Reg, in 1999, they began to audit classes together.

Lincoln fiber project falls through FRED PIERCE SUNSET 12_07_2018.jpg

LINCOLN — A deal that should have ben a win-win-win for a pair of utilities, their customers and the environment has fallen through.

Waitsfield & Champlain Valley Telecom (WCTV) has withdrawn from an agreement that would have relocated utility lines from a protected woodland to the roadside in Lincoln, buried new fiber optic cable through the forest and preserved scenic views of Mount Abraham. The agreement fell through even after the Lincoln selectboard approved the deal and the Vermont Family Forests Foundation (VFF) offered to pick up some of the tab.
