Editorial: H.552 — House plan unravels state's pro-business efforts

Posted on April 10, 2014 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



The primary reason to phase in the minimum wage hike in Vermont from $8.73 per hour to $10.10 per hour over three years—instead of rushing to that level by Jan. 1, 2015 as House bill H-552 mandates—is so Vermont businesses can gradually adjust to the 15 percent hike in labor expenses and are not put at a disadvantage with neighboring states.

That argument, and the big-picture narrative that goes along with it, seems lost on many members of the House.

Editorial: Wage hike deserves Senate approval

Posted on March 31, 2014 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



Gov. Shumlin’s call for an increase in the minimum wage hike to $10.10 an hour by 2017 is not only the right thing to do, it also makes economic sense.

No reasonable person can argue that a lower wage is good for business or the nation’s economy. The economic goal of the nation should be to create and nurture a vibrant and thriving middle class, which includes those at the lower end of the wage scale who see the merits of hard work yield a lifestyle that, at the very least, can put food on the table and shelter overhead.

Editorial: Solar power/town aesthetics? It's not an either-or proposition

Posted on March 24, 2014 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



The Vermont Senate killed a bill on the floor last week, 21-8, that would have provided towns some control over how solar power projects were sited. Among other things, the bill, S.191, sought to require ground-mounted solar installations to comply with the same town zoning and screening requirements as does other commercial development.

If Vermont Gas Systems thinks it has had a rocky time with Phase I of the Addison County pipeline project, running from Colchester to Middlebury, they might want to reconsider their strategy for the next leg of the project. With Phase II, it’s going to get much worse.

Following 34 school budget defeats across the state on Town Meeting Day, the most since 2003, Gov. Peter Shumlin displayed an uncharacteristically tin ear Wednesday by suggesting school budgets woes rested in the hands of local residents.

Editorial: A 'Yes' vote on Article 6 also supports tomorrow's prosperity

Posted on March 3, 2014 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



If you’re a Middlebury resident, when you get your Australian ballot on Tuesday, March 4, vote “Yes” on Article 6.

Here’s why:

• It is the best plan Middlebury has seen in 20-plus years of trying to resolve this issue. For 2 cents on the tax rate, the town would get a $7.5 million value. From a taxpayers’ perspective, that’s money well spent on a town building we all know needs significant renovation.

Editorial: Two candidates exemplary in Middlebury board race

Posted on February 27, 2014 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



When choosing a candidate for the three available seats open on the Middlebury Board of Selectmen, voters might ponder what individual qualities are most effective in that role: In our mind, strong leadership skills, a rational approach to problem-solving, and working well as a team are three of the more important strengths a candidate must have to be effective.
