Editorial: The good news about the Vt. economy is in all income sectors

Posted on September 26, 2016 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



Here’s the good news from the U.S. Census in data released last week: The media household income in Vermont rose 5.1 percent last year. Low-income households — those making up the bottom 20 percent — rose even higher, gaining 8.5 percent, while the top 20 percent rose 7.6 percent and top 5 percent rose 10.5 percent.

Guest Editorial: It's time address childcare in Vt.

Posted on September 19, 2016 |
By Robyn Freedner-Maguire



Last week, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump announced his plan to make child care more affordable, proposing tax deductions and employer incentives to provide child care to employees. Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, who has proposed that no family should spend more than 10 percent of its income on child care, has also made child care affordability a central campaign focus.

Guest Editorial: Want jobs? Vote for candidates willing to pay for clean water

Want Jobs? Vote for Clean Water

With election day fast approaching, we are certain to hear more about “jobs,” “growing economic opportunity” and “building a stronger economy” from candidates for office at all levels. As we should. There is only one problem. How do we attract and retain employers, and with them jobs, if we do not invest in drinking water and wastewater treatment? Short answer: We don’t.

Guest editorial: Imagine a day without water

Posted on September 12, 2016 |
By Eric Howe



Stop for a moment and think about the many times each day you rely on clean water. Think how frequently you turn the knob on a faucet, flush the toilet, or use water to cook or clean — and drink. Now imagine an entire day in which clean water was unavailable to you. Think of the difficulties just to take care of yourself and your family.

By taking personal responsibility for the quality of our lakes and streams, and in particular Lake Champlain, we can ensure that days without swimmable, fishable and drinkable water remain limited.

Editorial: Our polar opposite views of political reality

Posted on September 7, 2016 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



Sen. Bernie Sanders thrills liberals, moderates and even conservatives in a way that Hillary Clinton can only dream about — and it all has to do with the perception of honesty. When Bernie speaks, people believe him. When Hillary talks, many hear only lies, half-truths and plans to scheme more riches into her and Bill’s pockets. And then there is Trump: When the Donald talks, it’s all self-important blather with almost nothing based on fact. And yet each political camp believes in their candidate over the other.

Guest editorial: Vermont is ducking the real debate over jobs

Posted on September 2, 2016 |
By Emerson Lynn



If, as the Georgetown University Center on Education and Workforce predicts, 69 percent of all jobs in New England by the year 2020 will require postsecondary education, and if only slightly more than half of Vermont’s graduating high school seniors enroll in college the following fall, then what is the fallout from the obvious gap between the jobs available and the lack of people qualified to fill them?

Guest editorial: Dairy industry is reeling again; time to move to organic?

Posted on September 1, 2016 |
By Roger Allbee



The Vermont dairy industry is again reeling from low commodity prices caused by over-production, a glut of imports, challenges in our export markets and poor economic growth. The stark reality is that the current pricing mechanism for non-organic milk, in place since the 1930’s and other constraints, results in an unfavorable longer term prognosis for Vermont’s economically important and iconic dairy sector.

Editorial: The tie between 13 million gallons of wastewater, the lake, and statewide elections

Posted on August 25, 2016 |
By Angelo Lynn



Vermonters are at the fleeting confluence of two intersecting trajectories: an upcoming statewide election in November, and the tag end of August with another rash of beach closings on Lake Champlain, sewage spills, and blue-green algae alerts. With beachgoers upset, boaters disgusted and lakeshore homeowners up in arms at the deterioration of water quality in Lake Champlain and other bodies of water in the state, you’d think there might be enough political pressure to push clean-water policy to the forefront of our political discussion — especially in an election year.
