Letter to the Editor: Bottle deposit increase urged

Posted on April 17, 2017 |
By Alice Grau



Editor’s note: The writer asked us to publish this letter that she sent to Vermont Gob. Phil Scott.

The amount of the deposit has not changed since it was instituted in the 1970s.

Posted on April 17, 2017 |
By Larry Booker



Several millennia ago, when the ancient Greeks still worshipped their gods — Zeus, Apollo, Athene and the other Olympians — the mortals were warned not to defy the gods, or demonstrate inflated pride against them.
