Editorial: Indiana's hasty retreat

Posted on April 6, 2015 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



The irony in Indiana’s hasty retreat from its recently passed “religious freedom” law is that it was largely led by Republican businessmen, Chamber of Commerce leaders and legislators who realized the bigotry of the law would be damaging to the state’s bottom line. In the Republican arsenal of values-based politics, in this case money trumped religion.

And it did so in a comparative nanosecond.

  So much happened in local news this week that we’ll limit editorial comments to several shorts on a few of the more interesting issues:

Editorial: Don't weaken laws that keep our government accountable

Posted on March 23, 2015 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



 Open meeting laws are part of state statue to insure citizens are kept abreast of what government is doing. That’s as much true in state government as it is for school boards, town selectboards, zoning and planning commissions, or numerous other committees and subcommittees formed to carry out the important work of government.

In taking on those tasks, the inherent understanding is that the work is to be done openly and within full access of public transparency and participation.

Editorial: Crisis in siting solar arrays could stall industry's growth

Posted on March 19, 2015 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



With Statehouse discussion dominated this session by the $112 million budget shortfall and education reform measures focused on consolidation and improving outcomes, energy-related issues have fallen out of the spotlight to the detriment of Vermonters.

Editorial: Dr. Alan Ayer

By Angelo S. Lynn



Few people touch the lives of families as directly as do obstetricians, and Dr. Alan Ayer literally touched the lives of thousands of families during his 36-year-career in Middlebury while delivering more than 6,000 babies. For almost all of those years, he worked with his founding partner, Dr. James “Chip” Malcolm, at Addison Associates in Obstetrics and Gynecology, a practice they jointly established in 1980.

Editorial: Don't stop now, your community needs you

Posted on March 9, 2015 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



In the wake of Town Meeting Day, residents may think their exercise in democratic responsibility has been fulfilled. Not so. On the contrary, in almost every town there are important issues that require continued public conversation and engagement.

Certainly that’s the case with the communities whose school budgets were defeated.

Editorial: Voters' message on school budgets — Keep moving forward

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



School budgets around the state, for the most part, fared better this year than last when 34 budgets were defeated in town meeting balloting. Why the difference? Largely because the average school budget increase was held to just under 3 percent, compared to much higher increases in 2014.

But there is also the perception that the Legislature is responding to the changing landscape caused by the steep decline in the number of students in Vermont (it’s down 21,000 in the past two decades), the low teacher-pupil ratios and the consequent high per-pupil cost.

Editorial: Bill promoting vaccinations deserves public support

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



With several cases of measles occurring in the state last year, there is an increasing risk that continuing philosophical exemptions to vaccinations could put Vermont’s public school children in harm’s way. That’s because Vermont’s vaccination rate is coming close to 90 percent, a dangerous territory because below that rate is when contagious diseases — like measles, mumps and small pox — take hold and spread.

Editorial: Education bill sets the stage for Town Meeting discussion

Posted on February 19, 2015 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



Consider how it might work if a legislative proposal to create a single school board per school district were approved this session. The measure, for example, would phase out the seven elementary school boards in the Addison Central Supervisory Union, the UD-3 board (representing the Middlebury Union Middle School and the Middlebury Union High School), and the supervisory union board. In their place, one district board would represent that seven-town constituency with one combined budget.
