Fund the Pathways program at Mount Abraham Union High School. Fully.
Recently I was made aware that the support staff positions in the Pathways program were going to be cut if the budget was passed. The budget has not been passed yet, so I am relieved, but not at ease. The termination of these positions would be doing an unimaginable disservice to the students at Pathways.
Last week, I spent $102 to get my car fixed. Or, more accurately, I spent $102 to replace two faulty tire-pressure sensors that had triggered an ominous-looking amber dashboard light. The light erroneously indicated that one or more of my tires was dangerously low.
My tires were fine.
Perhaps you are familiar with that warning light: It’s a sort of horseshoe shape with the ends pointing up. It’s ripply on the bottom, with an exclamation point in the middle, meaning “Hey, pay attention, this is super important!”
Get ready to say goodbye to Joni Mitchell.
The esteemed singer-songwriter was recently hospitalized after being found unconscious at her Southern California home. She is a survivor of childhood polio, 60 years of smoking, 50 years of fame (she called it “a glamorous misunderstanding”) and Morgellon’s syndrome.
Mitchell may not be long for this world. But she will leave behind a legacy of song that will outlast the century.
Your pullout section, “The Bird’s Eye View,” has articles that need a lot more research before printing.
I hope other students at Mount Abraham Union High School can fill in the gap.
One article was on gun control and it seems the only research done for it was borrowing only from the NRA.
We all know that the NRA is in the business of helping sell guns and is not concerned about deaths caused by them.
Unfortunately, lots of people of different ethnicities in our state of Vermont are racially profiled at least once in their life, creating horrible memories.
There are few things less understood and less intuitive than the EB-5 program that continues to add the growth essential to the prosperity of Jay Peak and the surrounding environs of Franklin and Orleans counties, as well as projects in Addison County and throughout rural Vermont.
VERMONT — The Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department has released its annual Master Angler program report and the 2014 edition is highlighted by two new state record fish — both caught in Lake Champlain.
To start with, the Boston Marathon wheelchair racers who whip by first are absolute, astonishing beasts who must train for the event by ripping phone books in half. They couldn’t be more impressive. It’s also hard to imagine they make it 26.2 miles through eight Massachusetts towns without crashing — they ride six or eight inches behind each other, taking turns carving though the air, a practice fans of motor sports know as drafting.
