Letter to the editor: It pays to compare in drug pricing

Posted on February 27, 2017 |
By Peter Grant



I wish to thank my doctors for helping to get on cheaper and more affordable prescription medicine. Due to atrial fibrillation, occasional irregular heart beating, I was prescribed dual medicines. One, Sotolol, to slightly reduce heart rate to make it more regular and the other is a blood thinner to avoid stroke. For blood thinning I was given a prescription to the new and improved Eliquis.

Eric Davis: States' rights take on new meaning

Posted on February 23, 2017 |
By Eric Davis



A citizen movement called “Yes California” is trying to collect the 585,000 signatures (3 percent of the state’s registered voters) needed to put a referendum question on the November 2018 California ballot to repeal the provision in that state’s constitution that “California is an inseparable part of the United States of America.”

Legislative review: Chris Bray, Senate tackles ethics, speech

Posted on February 23, 2017 |
By Sen. Christopher Bray



On behalf of Sen. Ayer and myself, I want to share news on recent work in the Vermont Senate. As this is my first report, it’s a bit long. Future reports will provide briefer updates.

Here are some of the bills we’ve passed and issues we’re addressing:

S.10 provides for the extension of municipal water systems to homes whose drinking systems (wells and springs) have been poisoned with the potentially cancer-causing chemical PFOA. While many people know that this happened in Bennington, there are 14 towns in Vermont where PFOA has been found.

Community Forum: Jane Williamson, Present times echoing 1850

Posted on February 23, 2017 |
By Jane Williamson



This week’s writer is Jane Williamson, executive director of Ferrisburgh’s Rokeby Museum, a stop on the Underground Railroad in the 1800s.

Echoes of 1850

The Trump Administration’s order banning immigrants and refugees from seven mostly Muslim countries reminds us how history can repeat itself. Many reporters and commentators have recalled past bans or quotas — the Chinese in the 1880s, southern Europeans in 1924 and the infamous refusal to admit a shipload of German Jews in 1939.

Community Forum: Haviland Smith, Nature of terrorism is evolving

Posted on February 23, 2017 |
By Haviland Smith



America’s success in domestic counterterrorism depends on two critical elements: the extent to which the American people descend into “terrorist paranoia” and the extent to which we alienate our Muslim citizens and residents.

Fifty years ago, terrorism was seen primarily in dissident national groups working against the nations in which they lived.

Today the world of terrorism has changed. The primary authors of 21st-century terrorism are found in radical Islam.

Letter to the editor: Unethical leader must be resisted

Posted on February 23, 2017 |
By Harry Chaucer



I find Mr. Trump’s performance at his Feb. 16 press conference to bedeeply disturbing. He was obsessed with Hilary Clinton, his need to prove that he won the election by large margins, an unrealistic view of his performance and the workings of the White House, Vladimir Putin, and the American press corps. Why does he portray such a disturbing and unrealistic view of the world?

Letter to the editor: Ferrisburgh treasurer candidate has strong background

Posted on February 23, 2017 |
By Deb Healey



I am running for the Ferrisburgh Treasurer’s office because I am at a point in my work life where I can step forward to help. By design, an elected Treasurer is responsible only to the voters; however, to effectively run our town government the Treasurer and Selectboard must work well together.

If elected I will do my best to follow the accounting practices as recommended by our certified public accountant, be available during published office hours and foster town office operations based on cooperation and teamwork.
