Vermont Governor Shumlin calls for divestment and job creation

Posted on January 11, 2016 |
By Anne Galloway VTDigger.org



MONTPELIER — Gov. Peter Shumlin gave his sixth and final State of the State address to the Vermont Legislature on Thursday.

The uncharacteristically lengthy speech was a victory lap through memory lane, with a listing of accomplishments that lasted more than an hour. In the past, Shumlin, who has difficulty delivering long speeches because of his dyslexia, has kept his addresses short. This time, however, the governor spared no detail and appeared to be determined to defend his three terms in office.

Top stories of 2015: #8 — Juvenile and drug cases flood an overwhelmed justice system

Gov. Peter Shumlin shined a bright spotlight on the drug addiction problem in January of 2014 and, with a lot of help from many other advocates for those addicts, began to mobilize Vermonters to help solve the problem.

Drug addiction is still messing up previously promising young lives, causing heartache and fear in many, many Vermont families, and mounting untold costs to the economy.

The amount of disruption that drugs is causing was particularly clear to those who come in contact with the courts.

Views from the Vet: Get to know what goes on on a farm

Posted on August 20, 2015 |
By Joe Klopfenstein



Recently a client related a story to me. He was visited by representatives of the state occupational safety and health administration (OSHA). Apparently a passerby noticed material coming out of the barn doors while passing by on the road. The visitor was concerned enough to report the farmer for fumigating the farm with animals and workers inside. What was the mystery cloud? The farmer was applying fresh sawdust to the cows’ beds.

Editorial: Voters can take charge of the discussion in governor's race

Posted on July 2, 2015 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



Since Rep. Peter Welch’s announced last Friday that he would seek reelection to Congress and not be a candidate for governor, the governor’s race has become the horse race to watch. Not only will the campaigns be fascinating from a political perspective, but the outcome has the potential to change the state’s present course or build upon the progress made over the past five years.
