Clippings: Consider my right to not bear arms

Posted on August 4, 2016 |
By Emma Cotton



In June, a stranger handed Seven Days reporter Paul Heintz an AR-15 military-style rifle in exchange for a $500 wad of cash.

Though the two had never met before, though there was no background check performed and no photo ID presented, though the gun was handed over in the parking lot of a busy shopping center, the entire exchange was legal.

Eric Davis: Primary offers competitive contests

Posted on August 4, 2016 |
By Eric Davis



With the Vermont primary a few days away, there are competitive races for governor in both the Democratic and Republican parties, and for the Democratic nomination for lieutenant governor.

The Democratic contest is now between Matt Dunne and Sue Minter. While Peter Galbraith is a serious candidate, and will receive more than a handful of votes, does his presence on the ballot hurt Dunne or Minter more?

Opinion: Shedding light on downtown vigil

Posted on August 4, 2016 |
By Frances L. Stone



I went to a vigil in downtown Middlebury on Thursday, July 21, for Black Lives Matter.

Of course what came up was: All Lives Matter. This is true and I feel deeply that all lives matter. But, it seems obvious that all lives don’t always matter in our country, for if they did I would not have had to go to the vigil: Black Lives Matter.

So I went to the vigil; a vigil to remind us that Black Lives Matter also.

Opinion: Convention was the latest step on the road to revolution

Posted on August 4, 2016 |
By Diane Lanpher



This week’s writer is Diane Lanpher, a Democratic state representative from Vergennes and a Vermont delegate to the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia last week.

Opinion: Bridges traffic could be limited

Posted on August 4, 2016 |
By George Jaeger



The Addison Independent’s lead story on July 28, “Another delay for rail bridges project,” quoted selectman Nick Artim to the effect that another delay would not merely be inconvenient but “raise more concerns about the stability of the two downtown bridges that are deteriorating at a rapid rate.” The article goes on to say that “town officials have been concerned about catastrophic failure of the bridges, or an inspection that could force their closure.”
