Editorial: GOP’s doomsday; Kasich’s insight

Posted on May 4, 2016 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



For many Republicans, Tuesday was doomsday. What no one thought possible just nine months ago — when real estate billionaire Donald Trump entered the race among 17 other Republican leaders — came to pass. Presidential nominee Donald Trump trounced Texas Senator Ted Cruz in the Indiana primary, prompting Cruz, and, hours later, candidate John Kasich, to drop out of the race. The candidate who once was considered a joke, who’s candidacy was a commercial farce meant to build up his personal brand, has bested the best of the Republican leadership.

Editorial: Focus on jobs when defining 'independent contractor' status

Posted on April 28, 2016 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



As the Vermont Legislature moves toward adjournment, several bills won’t make the deadline and will die half-baked in their development. One such bill, H.867. dealt with how to define an independent contractor. It was controversial because it was characterized as pitting pro-labor forces against pro-business forces, and that pits liberals against conservatives right from the get-go.

Editorial: Open primaries: GOP sees threat; Dems eye ‘bigger tent’

Posted on April 25, 2016 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



In the aftermath of the New York Republican primary, Democrats and Republicans are looking for future reforms in very different ways. For establishment Republicans, the party is trying to reduce the opportunity for non-party voters to participate, while among Democrats a growing number are considering the prospect of opening their primaries to independents.

Editorial: The Big Apple speaks, but here's how Bernie still wins

Posted on April 21, 2016 |
By Angelo Lynn



In the Democratic presidential primary, New York was a turning point for Hillary Clinton not only because it reversed the string of eight wins by the unexpectedly popular Sen. Bernie Sanders, but because she will enter the convention in July with a solid majority of delegates, as well as the bulk of the Super-delegates. There will likely be, in other words, little doubt as to which candidate has won the most state contests, the most delegates, and a solid majority of the popular vote by the time the convention convenes.

Editorial: Public outrage puts primary system in the crosshairs

Posted on April 14, 2016 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



That Americans are upset with the way delegates are counted in each party’s presidential primaries might be one of the understatements of the year. Voters are livid, and rightfully so. After all, when a candidate wins 55 percent of the vote in a state and splits the delegates equally, voters supporting the winner should be surprised, if not outraged. That is the case with Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., when he took Wyoming by that margin last Saturday and yet basically split the delegate allocation with rival Hillary Clinton.

Editorial: Act 46 and school choice: What's real vs. 'the clamor'

Posted on April 11, 2016 |
By Rebecca Holcombe



Statewide, about 80 percent of our children live in communities that educate their children in schools that they operate at all grade levels. These schools include small town elementary schools, and both town-based high schools and larger union high schools. These larger union schools — like Rivendell, CVU and North Country — were created when smaller communities came together to provide greater opportunities for their children.

Editorial: No smoking until you're 21? It's logical, but let's first define personal responsibility

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



Let’s define adulthood and just what it means in the context of legislative law.

Under most definitions of the law, at 18-years-olds are considered adults. You can legally marry; join the military and go off to war; many banks will allow you to get a loan to buy a house or other major purchases, like buying a car (if you have adequate equity and income); and, at present, you can smoke cigarettes.
