Posted on April 16, 2015 |
By Myrdith McKinley and Teresa Churchill



The closing of Greg’s Meat Market has saddened us very much, having shopped at the store since he opened it in 1981.

All the employees who have worked for Greg are to be commended for their dedication and loyalty and have become dear friends to both of us.

Greg’s Market provided a service to the community in delivering groceries to shut-ins and the elderly. This was a special service which will not be provided by the other grocery stores.

Posted on April 16, 2015 |
By Jack Hoffman



This week’s writer is Jack Hoffman, a policy analyst for the Public Assets Institute, a non-partisan, non-profit organization in Montpelier.

All we’ve heard from Montpelier this year, from the governor to legislative leaders, is that Vermont has a spending problem, not a revenue problem. A new analysis by the Joint Fiscal Office (JFO) shows this conventional wisdom is wrong.

The JFO data show state spending has gone down as a percentage of the economy over the last 10 years.

Posted on April 13, 2015 |
