Editorial: Finding a balance with firearms, target practice, shooting ranges and the public's peace of mind

Posted on August 21, 2017 |
By Angelo S. Lynn

Editorial: Tough questions for three towns demand thorough discussion

Posted on August 10, 2017 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



We won’t get into the weeds of local board decisions, but perhaps a few questions and observations will help community members shape upcoming discussions about some crucial town issues. Those issues affect the Mount Abraham Union school district, where building committee members have proposed a $35 million bond to renovate the high school; in Orwell, where that community has rejected merging with the Fair Haven Union School district under Act 46; and Middlebury taxpayers and patrons of Ilsley Library where board members have proposed a $9.6 million expansion.

Editorial: China leads, Trump withdraws

Posted on June 8, 2017 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



With all the other headlines this week, you might have missed the news Tuesday that China and the European Union were convening in Beijing for the eighth annual meeting of the Clean Energy Ministerial, an international forum on clean energy.

Editorial: Is defense the political strategy of Gov. Phil Scott

Posted on June 1, 2017 |

By Angelo S. Lynn
