Editorial: A stark contrast to GOP

Posted on September 24, 2015 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



In watching the second GOP presidential debate last week, it’s important to note that this is a media-driven primary debate sponsored and hosted mostly by Fox News. The format does not follow the presidential debates. In short, the format is driven by and for television ratings and the dollars that produces.

Editorial: Time to show up and speak out in Vergennes

Posted on September 21, 2015 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



Vergennes residents have an exciting opportunity this coming Friday and Saturday to provide input on the future look of the downtown and how it connects with the Otter Creek basin. As part of a $87,000 grant-supported project, residents will witness how pedestrian and bike lanes would flow onto Main Street (Route 22A) and create a bike-friendly downtown, as well as make the traffic through town less imposing.

Editorial: Act 64 is a sea change in policy

Posted on September 16, 2015 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



University of Vermont agronomy specialist Jeff Carter, who works out of the Middlebury office, recently gave adequate warning to Addison County farmers that change was coming in light of a recent agreement between the state agriculture department and the Conservation Law Foundation. In that settlement the state agreed to mandate farms whose land drain into Lake Champlain implement best management practices on their land. It’s a substantial change from previous measures and it comes with significant consequences for those who don’t comply.

Editorial: There is no easy choice for the next governor of Vermont

Posted on September 14, 2015 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



Vermont now has five capable candidates who have announced their intentions to run for governor: Sue Minter, Shap Smith and Matt Dunne for the Democratic Party’s nomination, and Bruce Lisman and Phil Scott for the Republican Party. As well as being well-rounded, each candidate has their own particular skill set or background that could tip the scales in their favor.

Editorial: The U.S.-Iran deal, politics, and Bernie's rising stature

Posted on September 10, 2015 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



“It is my firm belief that the test of a great nation is not how many wars it can engage in, but how it can resolve international conflicts in a peaceful manner. I believe we have an obligation to pursue diplomatic solutions before resorting to military engagement – especially after nearly 14 years of ill-conceived and disastrous military engagements in the region.”

What foreign policy statesman can we attribute to such an enlightened comment?

That would be Vermont’s Sen. Bernie Sanders, sounding very presidential.

Editorial: Governor's race gets interesting

Posted on September 4, 2015 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



What’s common about Democrat Matt Dunne and Republican Bruce Lisman entering the Vermont gubernatorial race this week is both candidates are portraying themselves as outsiders with national business experience and outside-the-box political perspectives. Both will also face well-respected, long-time legislative leaders.

From that snapshot, it’s a race pitting political experience against an outsider’s perspective; and to fit in with the popular narrative, they are the anti-establishment candidates bringing new solutions to fix a failed system.

Editorial: How to make silk out of a sow's ear in New Haven

Posted on September 3, 2015 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



The town of New Haven offers an interesting lesson in the value of property as it relates to the town’s grand list and tax rates. At issue is a proposal by Anbaric Transmission that essentially adds $130 million to the town’s current grand list of roughly $260 million. That 50 percent increase would seemingly create a huge windfall in terms of property tax relief.
