Editorial: Public outrage puts primary system in the crosshairs

Posted on April 14, 2016 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



That Americans are upset with the way delegates are counted in each party’s presidential primaries might be one of the understatements of the year. Voters are livid, and rightfully so. After all, when a candidate wins 55 percent of the vote in a state and splits the delegates equally, voters supporting the winner should be surprised, if not outraged. That is the case with Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., when he took Wyoming by that margin last Saturday and yet basically split the delegate allocation with rival Hillary Clinton.

Editorial: No smoking until you're 21? It's logical, but let's first define personal responsibility

Posted on April 7, 2016 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



Let’s define adulthood and just what it means in the context of legislative law.

Under most definitions of the law, at 18-years-olds are considered adults. You can legally marry; join the military and go off to war; many banks will allow you to get a loan to buy a house or other major purchases, like buying a car (if you have adequate equity and income); and, at present, you can smoke cigarettes.

Editorial: Bernie's delegate math

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



In the Democratic presidential primary, Sen. Bernie Sanders won 128 delegates in the past six states holding either a primary or caucus, compared to 75 delegates for Sen. Hillary Clinton. And that includes Clinton’s much-ballyhooed win of Arizona. Arizona did have the most delegates at stake in the March 22 primary election, but of those 74 delegates, Bernie won 30.

Kniffin, Fred_3758.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — Assuming the reins at Porter Medical Center at the depths of one of its worst administrative setbacks in decades isn’t for the faint of heart and may require the patience of a saint. Porter’s new interim CEO Fred Kniffin, MD, is known by his colleages to possess both qualities, as well as someone who has experience as a doctor and in the hospital administration as chief medical officer.

Why cast a vote for Bernie?

On Tuesday, Vermonters will not only cast ballots on local budgets and candidates, but for a presidential nominee of either the Republican or Democratic parties. For those choosing to vote in the Democratic primary, here’s why we’re voting for Vermont’s junior Senator, Bernie Sanders.

Editorial: Act 46: Vote 'yes' to unify

Posted on February 25, 2016 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



As Town Meeting nears, one issue tops all others in Addison County — the unification of the three school districts (ACSU, ANwSU, and ANeSU.) At issue is whether school governance continues to be ruled by separate school boards for each elementary, union high and supervisory union (meaning 9 separate boards for ACSU, for example) or a single unified board for each district.

The pros and cons have been discussed before in this space, as well as through numerous letters to the editor and guest commentaries. (See several more letters in today’s issue.)

Editorial: Independent wins 18 awards, including top newspaper honor; plus 14 others for sister publications

Posted on February 22, 2016 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



“Ah shucks,” said the sheepish lion to the Wizard of Oz upon receiving his badge of courage, “I’m speechless.” 

While not speechless, we are certainly honored. Our OZ was the annual New England Newspaper Press Association awards convention held in Boston this past Friday and Saturday during which we took home 18 awards at the Addison Independent. Of those 18, an unprecedented (for us) eight were for first, six seconds, and four thirds.
