Milne, Scott 2014_0012.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — As the CEO of Milne Travel, Republican Scott Milne has sent many people to exotic locations throughout the world.

The North Pomfret Republican is now hoping to book a destination of his own, and it’s very exotic: Montpelier, where he hopes to serve as Vermont’s governor. He faces two-term incumbent Gov. Peter Shumlin, a Putney Democrat.

Opinion: It's time for a change in Montpelier

Posted on October 17, 2014 |
By Jim Peabody Sr.



When you are going to the polls this fall it would be well to consider that, unless there is a significant change in our state government, the same people that have already spent over $70 million on a dysfunctional health care exchange system will be planning and implementing the single-payer health plan for Vermont.

These are also the same crowd that siphoned $21 million from the GMP-CVPS merger. The $21 million that was supposed to be returned to the CVPS customers.

It’s time for a change.

Posted on October 8, 2014 |
By Ellen Oxfeld



There are many reasons to support Betty Nuovo and Amy Sheldon in the coming election for state representative from Middlebury. One reason is that both Nuovo and Sheldon have already demonstrated their commitment to the town of Middlebury through their many constructive contributions over the last two decades.

Opinion: 'Low-key' House hopeful urges support for McEathron

Posted on September 17, 2014 |
By Tom Hughes



Like many of my fellow Middlebury residents, I am interested in supporting the best ideas and in encouraging the most well motivated people to work on behalf of Middlebury and Vermont. Recently I’ve encountered a fresh voice among us, someone who is not afraid of hard work and who has no more patience with the same old tired “politics as usual” than I do. I think that you will want to remember his name; it is Calvin McEathron.

Opinion: Board pursuing wrong process

Posted on July 10, 2014 |
By Barbara Tomb



Are you one of the 915 Middlebury residents who voted “yes” on the March town meeting bond vote for the municipal building project?

Would it have influenced your vote at the time if the selectboard (instead of repeatedly assuring voters that the proposed project was compatible with the vision and spirit of the town plan) had revealed instead that altering the town plan to accommodate the project would be part of the process?

A more vibrant GOP voice would make Vt. stronger

Posted on June 5, 2014 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



As the deadline for filing for political office in Vermont nears its June 12 cutoff, the Vermont Republican party is largely missing in action. A gubernatorial candidate is yet to be named. No notable party leaders have stepped to the fore for down-party offices, and while there is talk about working to take legislative seats, there has been little action. By comparison, the Progressive Party’s filing for 21 statewide seats and offices is far more impressive and makes the GOP look weak and disorganized.
