Clippings: Discipline all about earning potential

Posted on February 3, 2011 |
By John Flowers



It’s become an almost daily occurrence.

My wife, Dottie, and I will be watching the news or a major sporting event on television and a commentator will reveal a major transgression by a politician or athlete who somehow survives the scandal to legislate or play another day.

By John Flowers



ADDISON — The new Champlain Bridge isn’t due to be unveiled for another eight months, but a group of citizens from both sides of the lake is already planning a two-day inaugural extravaganza they hope will serve the added purpose of getting tourists and shoppers reacquainted with the region.

The celebration is being organized by the Lake Champlain Bridge Community (LCBC), a group that will spend the coming months brainstorming ideas and raising funds for a fitting opening tribute for the $70 million span.

Posted on January 27, 2011 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — The Middlebury selectboard on Tuesday OK’d a 2011 Town Meeting Day warning that includes a request for a 20-year, $3 million bond issue to take care 17 different road improvement projects that might otherwise linger on the drawing board.

Posted on January 27, 2011 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — While the long-discussed $16 million Cross Street Bridge has now been completed, Middlebury continues to maintain a lengthy list of other capital improvement projects that local officials believe will need to be whittled down sooner, rather than later.

Middlebury Town Manager Bill Finger earlier this month gave the selectboard what he said was an incomplete list of almost 30 potential projects, ranging from the fairly basic and inexpensive (celebration of the 250th anniversary of the town charter this year) to the complex and costly (new town offices).
