Editorial: Saving the GOP's sinking ship

Posted on November 14, 2013 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



When the Republican Party elected David Sunderland as its new party leader last Saturday in what was described as a contentious meeting, it was also, as Sunderland said, a deliberate change in direction.

“I think today what we can take away from this is that the Vermont Republican Party has voted for change — a change in direction, a change in tone, and we plan on going forward.”

Guest editorial: White House amateur hour

Posted on November 7, 2013 |
By Haviland Smith



It’s hard to believe that anyone save the most rabid Republicans could have watched the goings on in the White House over the past few weeks and not be horribly disappointed in what has been revealed.

Editorial: 725,000 reasons to give

Posted on November 4, 2013 |
By Angelo Lynn



“Together we can make a difference.” That’s one phrase many area residents associate with the United Way of Addison County.

“The Way Addison County cares” is another.

Both are apt reminders of the way the United Way works: It relies on a large group of volunteers to reach out and help people in need. It works with more than two-dozen agencies in Addison County to be sure the human and social needs of people in the county don’t go unmet.

Editorial: A welcome nod to civility

Posted on October 31, 2013 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



We appreciate the divergence of opinion expressed in today’s letters to the editor concerning Middlebury’s proposed municipal building/recreation facility. We also agree, in a nod to civility on this Halloween eve, that future discussion be less descriptive and honed to the issues at hand.

Editorial: CEDS — A strategy to build good jobs, livable wages

Posted on October 28, 2013 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



This past Wednesday two consultants working with the Vermont Department of Economic Development and the state commissioner were in Middlebury promoting economic development. A good crowd turned out, an energetic and informative three-hour workshop ensued, and the group was invited to join a follow-up session to help fine-tune a statewide comprehensive economic development plan.

Editorial: Middlebury's Tea Party? Rarely has this town see an issue hijacked by a small minority

Posted on October 24, 2013 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



In what is clearly an end-around tactic to derail the proposed town office project in Middlebury, a handful of town residents forced a vote on Tuesday that nullified a previous 5-1 decision supporting the measure — an action that may prevent the measure from coming to a public vote, all because of a dubious conflict-of-interest complaint.

Editorial: The harm caused by excess

Posted on October 21, 2013 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



News last week that the Vermont Department of Health Care Access (DVHA) has incurred excesses in its $2.8 million media campaign promoting Vermont Health Care Connect should prompt the Shumlin administration to scrutinize the media firm’s accounting and make appropriate adjustments.

Guest Editorial: It's not Washington, D.C., that's crazy; we elect them

Posted on October 17, 2013 |
By Petula Dvorak



America really loathes Washington right now, and that’s preposterous: Our Town has done nothing wrong.

Washington is a place where hundreds of children couldn’t play soccer this past weekend; where cafeteria workers, janitors and secretaries aren’t getting paid for who knows how long; where buses and subway trains run empty; where shoeshine guys sit idle; and where Girl Scout troops had to cancel annual camping trips.

Editorial: Needed — A return to reason

Posted on October 14, 2013 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



As the nation careens toward default on its national debt, and as Tea Party Republicans continue their reckless dismissal of those consequences, one wonders what happens to a political party that rejects rational argument and embraces a faith-based approach to its political foundation. When such faith fails, will the voters who embraced such tactics die on the sword or slowly turn toward the politics of reason?
