Shumlin cites costs, quality as reason to reform school funding system

Posted on March 26, 2015 |
By John Flowers



StoneCutters5503.jpg

VERGENNES — Gov. Peter Shumlin on Monday called on lawmakers to help him contain what he called one of the state’s top cost-drivers — education— in an effort to make Vermont more fiscally solvent and attractive to job creators. He also made a pitch for efforts to slow the growth of spending on health care (see related story).

Shumlin made his remarks before a crowd at the Vergennes American Legion hall during a legislative luncheon sponsored by the Bridport Grange and Addison County Farm Bureau.

Opinion: Supreme Court right to reject pit

Posted on March 26, 2015 |
By Bruce Acciavatti et al.



The Supreme Court of Vermont just dealt a major blow to the Lathrop Limited Partnership’s proposed gravel pit in Bristol. In a unanimous decision issued March 20, the Court reversed rulings by the lower Environmental Court that allowed the project to move forward. The high court’s decision marks the end — we hope — of a long and costly struggle.

Jessie Raymond: New dog not garden's best friend

Posted on March 26, 2015 |
By Jessie Raymond



In my steadfast, if naïve, belief that winter is someday going to end, I’ve started thinking about gardening.

I just need to keep in mind that last year’s garden was a spectacular failure.

I blame the dog.

Indirectly, I mean. We got him last spring and it changed my routine. Knowing he needed exercise, I started walking him every morning before work, during the time I had previously devoted to the garden.

The dog liked it. I liked it. The garden hated it.

Community Forum: Take 'shame' away from drug addiction

Posted on March 26, 2015 |
By Melissa Deas



This week’s writer is Melissa Deas, a Bristol resident who works in Addison County for Spectrum Youth and Family Services teaching classes to people on furlough who have criminal and substance abuse backgrounds.

Visiting another state can be an awareness event that one can bring home to her/his own state. While reading the Bangor News in Maine, I found myself very impressed with an obituary a family wrote for a 27-year-old man, Ryan Bossie, who died from a drug overdose.

Opinion: Middlebury should take long-term approach to land

Posted on March 26, 2015 |
By Ross Conrad



As the Middlebury selectboard considers plans for the land behind the Ilsley Library (termed the Economic Development Initiative — EDI) they should keep in mind the fact that highly valuable community-owned pieces of property in the downtown area are becoming less and less, and sale of the parcel under consideration should only be undertaken as an absolute last resort.

Greg Dennis: This Copper Ale's now not for you

Posted on March 26, 2015 |
By Greg Dennnis



Here’s a recipe for a fun evening. Grab a six-pack of New Coke, hop in your Ford Edsel, and come on over so we can discuss Starbucks’ wildly successful campaign to get its customers to talk to each other about race.

When we’re done dissecting how well it worked for Starbucks to have their baristas write “Race Together” on their incredibly wasteful paper cups, we can turn to the subject of beer.

Local beer, I mean. In particular, Otter Creek Brewing Co.’s shocking decision to retire its flagship Copper Ale.

Group spurs running on the county's trails

Posted on March 25, 2015 |
By Evan Johnson

MIDDLEBURY — Many footpaths in the Middlebury area still lie buried under several inches of snow and ice, but a local group is making plans and eagerly awaiting spring’s thaw so they can get back to running on those trails.

Middlebury Trail Enthusiasts, as the growing group of trail runners is known, is working to connect outdoor enthusiasts with similar activity levels and goals while expanding awareness and responsible use of local trail resources, said Heather Flewelling, an MTE organizer, in a post on the group’s webpage.
