Jessie Raymond: Trip plans hinged on luck of the Irish

Posted on May 5, 2016 |
By Jessie Raymond



In 2019, my husband Mark and I will reach a milestone: our 25th wedding anniversary. I want to celebrate with a trip.

It’s early yet, but I thought I’d better spring the idea on him sooner rather than later so (a) we’d have time to save up for this adventure, and (b) he could get used to the idea of leaving his Addison County comfort zone.

I want to go to Ireland.

Gregory Dennis: Phoning from the Land of Enchantment

Posted on May 5, 2016 |
By Gregory Dennis



When did everybody suddenly own a smart phone? We’ve gone from a world in which people sat and talked with one another to a world in which we sit side-by-side, ignoring each other and staring at our phones.

This may actually represent progress. Before we could access the interwebs on our phone, every mobile user seemed to think they were required to communicate by speaking loudly at all times — “cell yell,” they called it.

Opinion: Universal care system favored

Posted on May 5, 2016 |
By Walter Carpenter



The letter “Vermont must address health insurance conundrum” (Addison Independent, April 11, 2016) was right on. This health insurance conundrum cannot be repeated enough. Our wages can never keep up with the never-ending rise of health care costs, no matter how high we raise the minimum wage. That “Of the roughly 630,000 people living in Vermont, almost 40 percent of them are on some form of public health care,” as the letter said, plainly shows this losing battle.

Opinion: With care, ANeSU can move to unification

Posted on May 5, 2016 |
By Rep David Sharpe



Regarding K-12 education, the Legislature was faced with several concurrent challenges. We have lost roughly 20 percent of our K-12 population and we heard quite clearly from taxpayers that property taxes were too high. At the same time we know that we need to prepare our students for a future where they are not just in competition with other Vermonters for jobs, they are also competing with students across the globe. In particular, we don’t do well by our students from low-income homes, and our costs for special education are high.

Opinion: Town, Diversified Occupations partnership is welcomed

Posted on May 5, 2016 |
By Shelley Payne



Today while I was at the Middlebury Parks and Recreation’s new facility on Creek Road, I noticed that the Hannaford Career Center’s Diversified Occupations students were doing all of the plantings of the new trees and lawn surrounding the new building. I knew one of the teachers and students helping so I went over to say hello.
