Editorial: Miscalculating Trump and North Korea's fear of nuclear war

Posted on October 12, 2017 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



When Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., who once supported Donald Trump’s bid for the presidency, now says that Trump is “out of control,” and that the White House has become “an adult day care” with a few key people watching over the president’s every action to try to contain the damage, what are Americans supposed to think?

Is this more of the harsh blowback against an increasingly unpopular president who is upending politics as usual — even among those who should be his political allies?

By Angelo S. Lynn



Attention high school seniors: this commentary is addressed to you, particularly those without current plans to go to a four-year college.

Editorial: School district consolidation shocker — take a deep breath, exhale, repeat

Posted on October 2, 2017 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



School consolidation is going to take just a bit of getting used to.

Consider the headline on today’s front page, about Addison Central School District schools needing $31 million in facility improvements over the next five years. Know, too, that sum will be shared by all district residents — that is, each resident of Ripton and Weybridge will help pay for the renovations and upgrades at Bridport or Shoreham, and vice-versa; just like they have always done for MUMS and MUHS facilities.

Editorial: Trump tests huckster's myth that no publicity is bad

Posted on September 25, 2017 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



The man in the nation’s White House is obviously a believer in the famous huckster’s saying: “There’s no such thing as bad publicity.”

Editorial: Trumpcare II — An inevitable race to the bottom for nation's healthcare

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



Anyone who has read anything about the Republicans latest plan to repeal Obamacare understands that at its core the plan cuts government spending on health care between 2020 and 2026, when the funding allotted in the current proposal would cease — and, we suppose, a new bill would need to be passed to supplement spending by the states, or a whole new system (Bernie’s Medicare-for-all should be popular by then) will be put into place.

Editorial: Pledge to make a difference; HOPE, United Way see need rising

Posted on September 18, 2017 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



Two stories in today’s Addison Independentintersect at a revealing crossroad: on the one hand is a report from HOPE (Helping Overcome Poverty’s Effects) showing a troubling increase in the demand for its services (particularly the Food Shelf), and on the other is the 50th anniversary of the United Way of Addison County (UWAC) — a non-profit organization dedicated to helping the more than 20 organizations providing services to those in need.

Editorial: Should Middlebury’s selectboard defy public’s will to legalize pot?

Posted on September 14, 2017 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



The most interesting question about the overwhelming support for legalizing marijuana among Middlebury residents is what the town’s governing officials will do with that the data. Will they vote against the majority’s wishes and side with their lobbying group’s bias, as some members have indicated, or will they vote the community’s will?

Editorial: How Middlebury's Climate Initiative will make you richer

Posted on September 11, 2017 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



A week from Monday, on Sept. 18, residents of the greater-Middlebury area will kick-off a discussion on how to transform our communities to improve energy sustainability, reduce energy costs, and, to quote Jon Copans, “to strengthen the community and model state-of-the-art rural development in an age of climate change.” Copans is Vermont Council of Rural Development’s Program Director and is the guy responsible for bringing this opportunity to Middlebury.
