Editorial: Early choices set telling tone for Shumlin's administration

Posted on November 18, 2010 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



Gov.-elect Peter Shumlin’s selection of his inner circle early this week set an important tone for the upcoming session: one of fiscal restraint and pragmatism. That’s particularly true of his selection of State Treasurer Jeb Spaulding as secretary of administration and Susan Bartlett as special assistant to the governor — both moderate Democrats known for their conservative approach on fiscal matters.

Editorial: Swinging at gnats, not dragons

Posted on November 18, 2010 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



The news Tuesday that Congress will place a ban on earmarks — spending items by lawmakers directed to their home states, also known as ‘pork’ — must be taken as a misguided blow against practices that inflate the national deficit by naive Tea Party activists, and those who fear them.

Stockman’s dire prediction

Posted on November 15, 2010 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



David Stockman, the boy-wonder budget director in the first Reagan administration and the brains behind the supply-side economics in 1981, is making waves within the Republican Party by adamantly proclaiming that the Bush tax cuts should not be extended — not for the rich and not for the middle class. He’s also suggesting cuts in the military. Those two recommendations are direct opposites of the policies he championed during Reagan’s first term.

Editorial: Good reasons for a tax bump

Posted on November 11, 2010 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



Tough budgets, progressive thinking

As Middlebury’s board of selectmen hone in on a draft 2011-2012 municipal budget, we urge community residents to get involved in the budgeting process by reading and understanding the issues as thoroughly as possible. To the extent that is done, area residents will be reminded how frugal this board has been over the past couple of years, while still respecting the town’s need for progress and a consistent approach to infrastructure repair and maintenance.

Editorial: Reform needs cabinet status

Posted on November 11, 2010 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



As Governor-elect Peter Shumlin assembles a team that he hopes will help him grow jobs and effect long-term change, we repeat two previous appeals: the need to select an outside agent of change as the next Commissioner of Agriculture (we covered those reasons in a guest editorial on Page 5on Monday) and the need for substantial reform in our educational system — a move that could be highlighted by making the commissioner a member of the governor’s cabinet.

Editorial: Message clear, direction isn't

Posted on November 8, 2010 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



New York Times conservative columnist David Brooks penned an essay last Friday, titled ‘Midwest at Dusk, in which he tries to equate the shellacking Democrats took in this region to Obama’s failed policies. Brooks says the overwhelming message was that there was too much government intervention, too much big spending resulting in deficits that are too high.

Editorial: Misreading the tea leaves?

Posted on November 8, 2010 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



On the national scene, the size of the Republican sweep is historic. It’s a signal that much of America thinks the course President Obama is pursuing is moving the nation in the wrong direction. That message was clear. What’s not clear is which direction they — the voters seeking change — want the nation to move.

Editorial: A bridge to optimism

Posted on November 4, 2010 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



By any measure imaginable, the celebration of the Cross Street Bridge opening this past Saturday was phenomenal. The procession of events was flawless and packed with energy; the coordination with the ‘Spooktacular’ Halloween events perfect; the food vendors’ tent was welcomed by all for nourishment and warmth; the speeches were short; the procession of honors well deserved; the music was entertaining and the ending fireworks, absolutely spectacular.
