Editorial: Looking back on 2016, to see what's ahead in the new year

Posted on December 30, 2016 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



Something there is about the human condition that seeks to review the past year lived as we embrace the new. Newspapers, magazines and digital blogs create Top 10 stories, Top 20 photos, Top 12 best digital gadgets — whatever the meme might be. The goal is to get readers to pause a moment, think and reflect on what we might have learned so that we might create a better world (or at least better ourselves) in the year to come.

Editorial: Bridge delay offers chance to get everything in place

Posted on December 19, 2016 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



Better safe than sorry. That’s the saying that seems most apt in light of the Vermont Agency of Transportation’s decision last Wednesday to conduct an Environmental Assessment of the Main Street and Merchant Row rail bridges project in downtown Middlebury. The decision, which will delay the project by at least a year, was not taken lightly, but made in the face of a probable lawsuit over potential environmental violations.

Editorial: Trump's mixed messages are all about showmanship

Posted on December 8, 2016 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



What does it say when President-elect Donald Trump invites Al Gore for a visit to talk about climate change on Monday, then on Wednesday nominates Scott Pruitt to head the Environmental Protection Agency? What does it say when he calls the president of Taiwan in a direct affront to China, and then says it was all just an off-handed phone call instigated by Taiwan — even if he knows that is an outright lie?

Editorial: From hate springs love

Posted on December 1, 2016 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



In the wake of Republican Donald Trump election as president, more than 700 incidents of “hateful harassment” were documented in the first week after the Nov. 8 election. It was, without doubt, a reaction to the hate-filled rhetoric used by Mr. Trump to pit one America against the other. It was, we now know, a deliberate and calculated tactic to win the election by pitting angry, white middle class Americans against minorities of any sort — and, unfortunately, it worked.

Editorial: Sheriff's action was legal, but not good public policy

Posted on December 1, 2016 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



Ever so often, all of us will make a judgment call that is off base, and we sometimes struggle to find the footing to set it right. That’s particularly so when no rules or laws are broken; or when no outright violation of norms were broken, yet still the call falls short of expectations.

Such is the case with Addison County Sheriff Don Keeler’s decision to use the general fund account from the sheriff’s office to pay for a political ad supporting his favored candidate for high bailiff. That candidate was one of four in the running.

Editorial: Killington, ski racing fans sow big benefits for state

Posted on November 28, 2016 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



You don’t have to ski, or even like winter sports (though it helps), to appreciate the world-class event Killington Resort pulled off this past weekend when it hosted the first World Cup racing event in Vermont in 38 years.

Editorial: Feeling Thankful? Sure...

Posted on November 23, 2016 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



In the wake of electing a candidate whose platform was largely based on racism, sexism and xenophobia, we look at this Thanksgiving holiday with less hope for our nation. And when we see President-elect Trump’s cabinet being filled with characters who in most other times in recent decades would be shunned because of their hateful speech toward others, short-sighted immigration policies and unbridled corporate greed, it is no wonder so many Americans fear for their safety and despair of economic and social justice.

Editorial: A heavy lift for U.S. voters

Posted on November 21, 2016 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



Two items hit the news last week that we might as well be prepared for in a Donald Trump presidency: Trump taking credit for something he didn’t do, and bad news on the environmental front.

Last Thursday, Trump claimed he saved a Ford plant in Kentucky from moving to Mexico. Not so fast, said the Ford company. Facts are the plant was never going to move to Mexico, but rather just a small line of production involving the Lincoln utility vehicle, the MKC.
