Opinion: God and the PSB control sunshine?

Posted on January 7, 2015 |
By Leonard Gibbs



Your news report, “Solar project denied,” of Jan. 5, 2015, clears up some of my confusion. I had previously thought that God owned our solar power source. Thanks to the PSB for straightening us out on this. We now know that both God and the PSB share control of the sunshine.

Opinion: Local input key in solar siting

Posted on January 7, 2015 |
By Paul Stone



Happy New Year to all and hope the holiday season has been merry and you all gave and received meaningful and useful presents. Of the presents I received one came as a letter to editor of the Addison Independent, Dec. 25. The writer, associated with VPIRG, admonished me for confusing Act 248, a mental health law passed in 2011, with Section 248 of Title 30 and the Public Service Board, and for thinking solar panels are ugly. So lesson learned. I apologize for any misgivings anyone suffered.

Opinion: Corporate interests are winning the health care battle

Posted on January 7, 2015 |
By Millard Cox



I have some questions about Gov. Shumlin’s recent cessation of universal single-payer tax-supported health care for Vermont.

Was there a coalition of conservative Democratic and Republican legislators who threatened to vote for the Republican candidate for governor if Shumlin carried out his plan to implement Act 48?

Opinion: The long fight for a single-payer system is not dead

Posted on January 7, 2015 |
By Ellen Oxfeld



Gov. Shumlin’s decision to suspend moving forward on the financing package for single payer in the coming legislative session does not mean that the dream of health care as a public good in Vermont is dead. At his press conference announcing his decision to not pursue single-payer financing in 2015, the governor stated that “now is not the right time.” But he also made clear that Vermonters must not abandon the goal of universal publicly financed health care stated in Act 48.

MIDDLEBURY — In a hard-fought boys’ basketball game on Tuesday, host Middlebury won the battles of the boards and turnovers and showed more offensive balance in subduing visiting Otter Valley, 69-51.

A 21-10 edge in the second quarter also proved to be decisive. In that period, guard Oakley Gordon and forwards Sam Holmes and Bryce Burrell combined for 19 points as the Tigers took a 31-18 lead into the locker room at halftime.

The Otters three times cut the lead to 11, the last time on a drive by Kai Norwood early in the fourth that made it 52-41.

MIDDLEBURY — The Middlebury Union High School basketball team came up just short of its first win on Monday, when visiting Missisquoi held the Tigers to 11 second-half points and hung on for a 31-26 victory.

The Tigers, playing without injured leading scorer Keagan Dunbar, a freshman guard, took a 15-11 lead with 1:01 to go in the second quarter, but struggled to score the rest of the way after MVU called off its full-court press.

She professes, “hockey is a big part of my identity,” so when she was looking at colleges, the quality of their women’s ice hockey programs was paramount.

She considered Bowdoin, Amherst, Hamilton — and Middlebury, all excellent programs with coaches she respected.

Not the least of her considerations was the coach. She chose to play for the most successful Division 3 women’s ice hockey coach in the country:
