Clippings: Solar panels spark hot interest

Posted on February 9, 2012 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



 

OK, OK. We’d had numerous people stop and ask various members of the Addison Independentstaff about the new décor on our southern-facing roof.

We put up two banks of solar panels on our roof late this fall, and they’ve generated a lot more interest than I might have expected. So, here’s the story:

We’d had a slow leak in our roof this past fall, ruining a ceiling tile or two, and causing us to push the photocopier off to the side for a couple days. Nothing major, but something to fix.

Super Bowl ad scores TD

Posted on February 9, 2012 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



 

I’m not the dyed-in-the-wool football fan I used to be.

But I tuned in Sunday to watch the New York Giants snatch the momentum away from the New England Patriots late in the second half, and saw Eli Manning march his team down to a sure winning field goal and accidentally stumble in for the winning touchdown instead.

Editorial: Job growth reality vs. myth

Posted on February 6, 2012 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



Mitt Romney, as well as most of the other Republican candidates for president, has run his campaign focused almost solely on President Obama’s sorry performance on creating jobs. Appealing to the conservatives in Nevada and Florida, he promised a robust period of job growth (of what percent he didn’t say) compared to the slow climb the job market has seen for the past three years.

As the Republican nomination approaches its foregone conclusion and hands the reins to Romney, President Obama’s response will pit reality against theory.

Editorial: Keystone victory is first step to ending special breaks for industry

Posted on January 23, 2012 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



When President Barack Obama rejected a permit for the controversial Keystone XL pipeline to carry oil 1,750 miles from the tar sands of western Canada to the refineries in Texas, it was more than a victory for Ripton environmentalist Bill McKibben against this one project: it was a rare victory against the special treatment the U.S. government has long given the oil industry.

It also signals the beginning of change, perhaps, in the county’s attitude when weighing the value of dirty energy against the health of the environment.

Editorial: The inevitable candidate

Posted on January 12, 2012 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



With his 15-point spread in the New Hampshire Republican primary over second-place finisher Ron Paul, Mitt Romney’s victory there and his eight-vote squeaker in the Iowa caucuses has some media pundits bemoaning the prospect that the gala may be over after the opening dance. True, the primaries are scheduled through mid-June and Super Tuesday isn’t until March 6, when 10 primaries (including Vermont’s) put 466 delegates up for grabs. But will it matter, by then, if Mitt has become the inevitable candidate after the first four contests?

Editorial: Why postpone needed work?

Posted on January 12, 2012 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



In a letter to the editor in today’s issue, Middlebury resident Susan DeWind makes the case that now is not the time to be adding new expenses in the town budget — referring specifically to the proposed economic development fund — when the town is also considering bonding for an expanded fire department. She then throws out a worst-case scenario that might produce a hike of several cents on the tax rate.

We appreciate DeWind’s concerns but, in the interest of accuracy, several of her points need clarification, both minor and significant:

Editorial: 'Vermont Strong' a fitting tribute

Posted on January 9, 2012 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



In Gov. Peter Shumlin’s first state-of-the-state speech to lawmakers last Thursday he was as good a salesman pitching the “Vermont Strong” message, complete with license plates to help those still in need, as he was ring-master while directing the recovery effort after Tropical Storm Irene. As well he should be. Being the state’s leader not only means coming up with novel and effective ideas, but also being able to bring those ideas to completion.

Series explores business development fund

Posted on January 5, 2012 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



Trying to create good paying jobs has become a national obsession. All political candidates are for it; states and cities are devising ways to promote it; and every taxpaying citizen who is underpaid and overworked (or jobless) is clamoring for better jobs — preferably near their home.

Editorial: Iowa's message to Romney

Posted on January 5, 2012 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



With Mitt Romney’s razor-thin victory in Iowa’s presidential caucus, what’s the most telling number? Is it 8 — the margin by which he barely beat Rick Santorum, the former senator from Pennsylvania who came out of nowhere in the past two weeks (then polling almost dead last) to surprise everyone? Is it 21 percent — the protest vote given to 75-year-old, grouchy libertarian Rep. Ron Paul of Texas? Or maybe 13 percent — the lousy showing by Newt Gingrich that landed him in a distant fourth place?

Try six.
