Opinion: Porter decisions are affecting care

Posted on March 10, 2016 |
By Christina Wadsworth



Word on the street has it that Porter is axing doctors, nurses and relationships with practices.

Jane Lindholm’s “Vermont Edition” articulated the challenges, and it is clear from the word on the street and the radio program’s guests that these challenges are being addressed without transparency to those affected.

Greg Dennis: Is 'Trumpmania' a media phenomenon or news?

Posted on March 10, 2016 |
By Greg Dennis



Has the media’s obsession with Donald Trump gone too far?

On the cable news networks, it’s often All Trump, All the Time. That has prompted the media’s critics — who are never in short supply — to question this obsession with the coarse braggart who is leading the Republican presidential race.

By Mike Polahamus of VTDigger.org

A state program that helps low-income families afford childcare is not slated for an increase in the state’s budget for the next fiscal year. That could be a further stress on a program that is already stretched thin due to a number of factors — including the high number of young children in state custody.

By Peter Grant



Canadian friends are inviting me to move to Canada before Trump has a wall built, paid for by Canada.
