Spread of solar linked to state energy plan update

Posted on December 30, 2015 |
By Gaen Murphree



MIDDLEBURY — A critical update to Vermont's Comprehensive Energy Plan, due to the Legislature by Jan. 1, offers some provocative numbers that paint an intriguing image of what the Green Mountain State could look like in 35 years.

For instance, to meet the goal for renewable energy generation, as many as 13,000 more acres of solar arrays would have to be raised across the Vermont landscape (that equals about 1 percent of all Vermont land currently in farming or a little less than one-quarter of 1 percent of all land in Vermont).

MIDDLEBURY — While controversy reigns over the proposed replacement of Middlebury’s two downtown rail bridges, work is quietly proceeding on another rail span project just a short distance away.

At issue is the 200-foot-long rail trestle bridge located off Water Street, just south of the Cross Street Bridge. Built in the late 1800s, the steel structure is deteriorating and is now undergoing a $1.4-million repair project coordinated by the Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans).

Victor Nuovo: Why Read Plato?

Posted on December 23, 2015 |
By Victor Nuovo



Nuovo,Victor1754.jpg

Editor’s note: This is the 15th in a series of essays or reflections about the Republic, a book written two and a half millennia ago by the great philosopher Plato.

After I had completed the 14th essay, which was supposed to be the last, I was gently reminded by a friend that I had failed to make good on my promise to explain why someone like me, who is not a Platonist and whose settled opinions about the nature of things are decidedly anti-Plato, should nevertheless find deep satisfaction and fulfillment in reading his works and writing about them.
