Opinion: County foregoes ticket amnesty

Posted on April 2, 2015 |
By K. Cheever



Cheers to Chittenden, Franklin, Grand Isle, Lamoille and Washington counties for “tossing a line” to many financially strapped residents through Ticket Amnesty Day.

Guest editorial: Over our heads in Syria?

Posted on April 2, 2015 |
By Haviland Smith



Before we adopt a new Syria policy, a quick review might be helpful in better understanding the endless confusion that rules over the situation in that region today.

Sunni Arabs, Kurds and Turks make up about 72 percent of the Syrian population; Shia, 13 percent; and Christians about 10 percent. The Syrian government, its military and economy under Bashar Al Assad are dominated by the Alawites (Shia). Minority Alawites and their allies run everything important in Syria.

Posted on April 1, 2015 |
By Evan Johnson



Jennings.jpg

So you’ve been training all season and no matter how hard you try, you’re just not getting faster. Your 5K times won’t break 20 minutes or your marathon is never under three hours.

There’s a solution to this problem and it has to do with the way you approach your training. In most of the accounts that Olympian Lynn Jennings hears, runners are either over-training or under-training. If you’re having trouble with a plateau, Jennings says there’s a good chance you’re falling into one of these two categories.
