Town Meeting Day 2015: Cornwall

By Addison Independent



CORNWALL — Cornwall residents at their town meeting next week will decide a contested race for the selectboard and determine how to address a $56,896 budget deficit carried over from the 2013-2014 fiscal year.

The deficit, Town Clerk Sue Johnson noted, is primarily associated with a lag in the collection of delinquent taxes. This will most likely require a vote at town meeting to make up the deficit by raising taxes.

The lone race on the ballot features Magna L. Dodge versus Brian Kemp for a one-year spot on the selectboard.

Opinion: Gun rights have long history

Posted on February 25, 2015 |
By John Burton



In the interest of civil discourse, amenable conversation and cordial debate may I present Patrick Henry on the issue of liberty:

“Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are ruined. … The great object is that every man be armed. Everyone who is able might have a gun.”

— Patrick Henry, in a speech to the Virginia Ratifying Convention, June 5, 1778.

Opinion: Ruminating on driving, snowfall

Posted on February 25, 2015 |
By Mary Burchard
