Opinion: Phase 2 Too High a Constitutional Price

Posted on June 25, 2014 |
By Christopher Bray



Addison County is currently the scene of a controversial three-part drama.

Vermont Gas Systems/Gaz Métro (VGS/GM) has proposed the Addison Natural Gas Project (ANGP): Phase 1 will bring gas to Middlebury, and it has already received a Certificate of Public Good (CPG); Phase 2 is the subject of an application now before the Public Service Board (PSB); and Phase 3 is in the concept stage, and may someday bring gas from Middlebury to Rutland.

Opinion: State showing wrong priorities

Posted on June 25, 2014 |
By Paul Stone



It seems devastatingly sad that Vermont is planning to spend $8 million defending the right to require labels of foods containing GMOs — that is, genetically modified organisms — that have caused no health problems and certainly no deaths, while the Vermont Department for Children and Families needs serious reorganization and rehabilitation so as to prevent abuse and deaths of innocent children under its supervision.

Posted on June 25, 2014 |
By Heidi Scheurmann



This week’s writer is Rep. Heidi E. Scheuermann, who is in her fourth term in the Vermont House.

There have been many opinions about how successful the 2013-2014 legislative session was.

Just prior to adjournment, Gov. Peter Shumlin told the House of Representatives “we have made this biennium one of the most productive in recent memory.” In other press reports, House Speaker Shap Smith called the last session “incredibly productive.”

Opinion: Politician claims unfair criticism

Posted on June 25, 2014 |
By Heidi Scheurmann



Editor’s note: The writer submitted this letter at the beginning of the month but due to an error at the paper publication was delayed until now.

I was surprised at the vitriolic attack on me in the May 26 edition of your newspaper.

Opinion: Let's use our common sense and oppose the pipeline

Posted on June 25, 2014 |
By John Madden



Concerning the Canadian Gaz Métro (VGS) proposed 12-inch, high-pressure (600 psi) gas transmission pipeline through Addison County:

Vermont law (30 V.S.A., Section 248(b)(5)) and common sense say that proposals that would be a threat to public health and safety are not in the public good.

Google “explosions of natural gas transmission pipelines” for pictures and record of that potential harm to Vermont and Vermonters.

Editor’s note: Since last August, our columnist has been filing his stories from Cameroon, West Africa.

At the end of the movie “The Color of Money,” a rejuvenated, if middle-age, “Fast Eddie” Felson (Paul Newman), pronounces triumphantly, “I’m back!”

That’s me, sort of. After 10 months in Africa, I’m here to announce tentatively: “I’m back?”
