Letter to the editor: Incumbent Bristol selectmen deserve return to board

Posted on February 14, 2019 |
By Jim Quaglino



The residents of Bristol are indeed lucky to have such dedicated members on their Select Board. Ted Lylis and Peeker Heffernan have both dedicated many many years to making Bristol a better place. They have dedicated countless hours of volunteer time over and above their selectboard duties to many projects, committees and civic organizations over the years.

Letter to the editor: Google searches becoming increasingly unproductive

Posted on February 14, 2019 |
By Peter Grant



Can anyone tell me why Google internet searches have become so useless? For my inquiry “Vermont Statutes Online” the return from Google were:

1.  Kansas Governors Debate 2018

2.  Something about Nova Scotia Laws

3.  Lawful Hacking

4.  Native American Housing

Where does Google come up with these answers that have nothing to do with the question?

Letter to the editor: Plant-based diet vital for future

Posted on February 14, 2019 |
By Jessica Danyow



I write in support of the arguments made in Pat Davies’ recent letter “Vegetarian diet vital in battle against global warming.” Without a significant societal shift to plant-based diets, we not only undermine the war against climate change, we also continue to abuse the earth’s very finite resources and condone animal suffering on a massive scale.

Thank you, Pat, for your thoughtful and well-documented article.

Letter to the editor: Laws might not stop hunters

Posted on February 14, 2019 |
By David Lewis



I would like to comment on the recently published opinion piece titled, “Coyote policies lead to reckless killing” (Feb. 4). In my opinion current coyote policies surely need to be addressed. And I agree that the killing of a family pet on Christmas Day, as reported in the article, was tragic and indeed thoughtless.

Opinion: UVM deserves support as an economic driver

Posted on February 11, 2019 |
By Stephen C. Terry



There is an urgent need for Vermont to figure out how to develop ways the state can grow its declining labor force. Without the 10,000 new workers that we need every year, between now and 2040, to replace those leaving the work force through retirement or just leaving Vermont for greener pastures, the state will continue on its slow economic decline.
