The Fantasticks: Weary of the politics? Escape to a night out with a terrific local theater

Posted on November 4, 2016 |

Tired of the television news, campaign ads on the radio and the pounding drone of digital feeds on your computer hyping one candidate or the other with yet another appeal for more and more money?

Editorial: The tie between 13 million gallons of wastewater, the lake, and statewide elections

Posted on August 25, 2016 |
By Angelo Lynn



Vermonters are at the fleeting confluence of two intersecting trajectories: an upcoming statewide election in November, and the tag end of August with another rash of beach closings on Lake Champlain, sewage spills, and blue-green algae alerts. With beachgoers upset, boaters disgusted and lakeshore homeowners up in arms at the deterioration of water quality in Lake Champlain and other bodies of water in the state, you’d think there might be enough political pressure to push clean-water policy to the forefront of our political discussion — especially in an election year.

Editorial: Do we have the will to alter nation's deadly gun culture

Editorial: Democrats' radical idea vs. GOP's trickle-down theory

Posted on July 7, 2016 |
By Angelo Lynn



Give Vermont’s Democratic gubernatorial candidates an A-plus for optimism. They are doers, intent on making Vermont stronger, healthier, wealthier and smarter. With just a few degrees of separation between their stances, they would work to provide free tuition at state colleges, increase the minimum wage to $15 per hour, continue to build the state’s infrastructure (roads, bridges and railroads), strengthen downtowns, expand early childhood education, create more affordable housing, reduce Vermonter’s reliance on fossil fuels and create a more dynamic state economy.

Editorial: Phil Scott: Ready or not?

Posted on July 1, 2016 |
By Angelo Lynn



The challenge Republican Phil Scott has long foreseen in his race for the governorship is how to rise to star power without taking controversial positions that raise red flags to the moderate majorities in the state. He has done that well. By taking moderate stands on most controversial issues, he’s become known as the go-along to get-along candidate; a Mr. Nice Guy.

Nothing wrong with that when you’re number two (as lieutenant governor) or as one of the Republican minority in the Legislature.

Editorial: Minter takes early stand on gun legislation in Vermont

Posted on June 23, 2016 |
By Angelo Lynn



Give Democrat gubernatorial candidate Sue Minter credit for being out-front pushing sensible gun-control legislation and helping to change the conversation among candidates running for governor.

Minter has called for stronger gun-safety legislation in Vermont since the mass shootings in Charlotte, N.C. a year ago. She has advocated for more thorough background checks for those purchasing a gun, and most recently for a ban on selling assault weapons for non-military purposes.

Editorial: A show of political resolve

Posted on June 23, 2016 |
By Angelo Lynn



House Democrats in the nation’s capital displayed a modicum of civil disobedience Wednesday by taking over the House floor and demanding action on gun control measures that 85 to 90 percent of Americans support.

Yet on Monday, the Republican-controlled Senate defeated two measures brought by Democrats that would have banned the sale of guns to those on the federal terror watch list, and expanded background checks for online and gun-show purchases.

Editorial: Orlando's tragedy, GOP's folly, Trump's transgressions

Posted on June 16, 2016 |
By Angelo Lynn



In the aftermath of the Orlando massacre late Saturday night, what should appall all Americans is Trump’s assault on the basic values of Americanism — our respect for common decency, our sense of justice and tolerance of religious beliefs. Trump’s lack thereof was an embarrassment to many top leaders of the Republican Party, and an outrage to almost everyone else in the U.S. and the western world. Even House Speaker Paul Ryan, the leading congressional Republican, rejected Trump’s inflammatory rhetoric and his call for a ban on Muslims entering the country.
