Opinion: Business owners back wage hike

Posted on April 18, 2019 |
By Sivan Cotel and Sam Hooper



The Vermont legislature has spent considerable time over the past two years evaluating legislation that will raise Vermont’s minimum wage to $15/hour. The current bill being considered would increase the minimum wage incrementally to $15 by 2024. On the national level, there is also a push to double the federal minimum wage to bring it up to $15/hour.

Ways of Seeing by Rebecca Kneale Gould: Hope springs eternal from peepers

Posted on April 18, 2019 |
By Rebecca Kneale Gould



Gould, Rebecca Ways of Seeing CMYK.jpg

Last week I was poking around a vernal pool in Massachusetts when I heard a late-afternoon sound that I ache to hear every early spring. It was the first few peeps of the spring peepers (Pseudacris crucifer for the budding naturalists among you).

Posted on April 18, 2019 |
By Greg Dennis



Dennis, Greg ONLINE.jpg

If you were to be stranded on a desert island, what would you want to take with you?

BBC Radio has been asking that question for nearly 80 years. The show’s guests, known as “castaways,” are interviewed about what eight pieces of music, along with one book and one luxury item, they would choose to accompany them should they be banished to their own personal Elba.

Eric Davis: Democrats must expand electoral base

Posted on April 18, 2019 |
By Eric Davis



Davis, Eric May 2018.jpg

The Electoral College has recently been the subject of considerable debate and discussion among presidential candidates and newspaper op-ed writers. Regardless of one’s views on the merits of the Electoral College, it does provide the rules under which the 2020 campaign will be conducted, and an advantage to President Trump’s bid for re-election.

Letter to the editor: Carbon dividend law could work

Posted on April 18, 2019 |
By Jon Andrews



If you’re concerned about climate change, then there’s something you can do right now to fight it: write to Rep. Peter Welch and ask him to cosponsor H.R. 763, The Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act of 2019. This bill seeks to create a revenue-neutral carbon fee and dividend program like the one recommended in the bipartisan Economists’ Statement on Carbon Dividends published in the Wall Street Journal on January 17 — the largest public statement of economists in history, with 3,508 signers from across the political spectrum.

Letter to the editor: Climate group sets meeting

Posted on April 18, 2019 |
By Fran Putnam



I am happy to see the increasingly robust coverage in this paper of the many aspects of the looming climate emergency. Angelo Lynn’s editorial, “The Biggest Issue of our Times,” makes it clear that he is tuned in to what is going on both in our community and worldwide. We are long past the point where any reasonable person can deny that the world we live in has already been deeply changed by human activity. The question is, what can we do now?

Letter to the editor: Neighbors Together working to help downtown Midd

Posted on April 18, 2019 |
By Amy Hastings



Having recently spent several weeks in the deep south of our country, I was frequently reminded of what deserted small downtowns look like. They’re all over and we certainly don’t want to imagine that happening here. But, as Middlebury’s railroad construction continues and intensifies, as a recent writer wrote, we’re going to have to “pull together as a community.” If we don’t, perhaps we might risk some unimaginable losses to our downtown.
