Editorial: Re-energizing town meeting

Posted on March 14, 2019 |

Will changing times continue to conspire against Town Meeting, or is there a way to re-energize this once vital Vermont tradition? That’s the question behind a front-page story in today’s issue.

Editorial: BLSG Insect Control District: Finding common ground

Posted on March 7, 2019 |
By Angelo Lynn



There’s nothing like an old-fashioned slugfest to get the juices going. The question is always whether the combatants will dust themselves off, shake hands and head to the bar to make amends. For Salisbury’s sake, which voted 98-83 to fully fund its commitment to the BLSG Insect Control District this Tuesday, we hope they do.

Snowed in

snowed in, hancock town clerk, 3-1-19.jpg

THE OLD HANCOCK Town Clerk’s Office on Route 125 in the village looks besieged by snow, which is not surprising since the clerk moved to new quarters in the library on Route 100 awhile back. The town is selling the old office for $15,000 and at Tuesday morning’s town meeting Hancock residents will discuss whether to put that money toward a building maintenance fund, to buy a generator for the town office, or to do something else with it.

Editorial: Town Meeting: the crux of the matter

Posted on March 4, 2019 |

Is Vermont’s Town Meeting threatened by a waning interest? Is meeting as a collective body and talking face-to-face about town and school budgets just too much to ask in an era of never-ending posts on social media?

Editorial: Insect Control District's mistake, or a nuisance suit by a relentless opponent?

Posted on February 28, 2019 |
By Angelo Lynn



In a letter in today’s Addison Independent, Salisbury resident Chris Fastie, writes of legal expenses the Brandon-Salisbury-Leicester-Goshen-Pittsford (BSLG) Insect Control District is passing on to taxpayers. He notes the legal expenses are because a group called the Toxics Action Center (based in Boston) filed a lawsuit against the BSLG claiming it did not alert the state of the consequences of the chemicals it uses to control mosquitoes.

Editorial: Plastic bags and inconvenience

Posted on February 25, 2019 |

When former U.S. Vice President Al Gore titled his 2006 book and documentary on global warming An Inconvenient Truth, he touched on a common theme of these modern times: so many of the conveniences that make living easy — fossil fuels, cars, airplanes, plastics, chemicals, and on and on — have a dark side we often discover belatedly.

Editorial: Bernie's revolution: Is the magic there a second time?

Posted on February 21, 2019 |
By Angelo Lynn



Sen. Bernie Sanders launched his second run for president this past Tuesday with an appeal to continue the revolution he started in 2016 when he had the audacity to challenge the presumed Democratic designee Hillary Clinton. He was the rebel then, the long-shot candidate with the white-tasseled hair, still heavy Brooklyn accent, and a penchant for shouting out his political talking points as if he were leading the masses to overthrow the government.

Editorial: A dangerous point to ponder

Posted on February 18, 2019 |
By Angelo Lynn



Why does it matter if Trump is granted emergency powers to fund a few billion dollars of a wall along the border with Mexico? Certainly it is not that the $5.6 or so billion he asked for will break the national treasury.

Heck, if his Republican blue collar supporters will support a trillion dollar tax break to his fellow billionaires, what’s a few billion to Trump cronies to build a wall the country doesn’t need?

Editorial: Closing hatchery is worse than just lousy math, it's poor policy

Posted on February 14, 2019 |
By Angelo Lynn



The Scott Administration blew the call when they proposed closing the Salisbury Fish Hatchery, and anglers and hunters throughout the state should protest for as long as it takes the Scott administration to come to its senses.
