When it comes to odd jobs around the house, my husband, Mark, and I just don’t have the same priorities.
I knew as soon as I walked back into the office that there was a problem.
I had two of the big three — my wallet and keys. But I couldn’t locate my iPhone.
After several frantic searches of the car, I called the café where I’d been sitting outside while I worked on email and quaffed a coffee. They checked the tables where I’d been sitting and didn’t see the phone.
When it comes to the November bond vote for the proposed renovations to Mount Abraham Union High School, it is time to say NO.
I went to the one of the open house tours and discussion sessions this past summer, and found the school in much better condition than expected. Yes, there are some issues to address, but not $33 million worth.
I could not disagree more with some recent letters to the editor regarding solar power development in Vermont. We are so used to living lives with our power being generated at distant power plants that are out of sight and out of mind that we tend to forget that any form of energy production has its adverse impacts.
