Editorial: Time to overhaul the debates

Posted on October 18, 2012 |
By Angelo Lynn



After watching the second presidential debate, we’re becoming staunch advocates of revamping the way these debates play out as the candidates hit the homestretch. We’re not talking about tinkering with the rules — the silliness over which candidate goes first or other such petty nonsense — but rather overhauling the process so that the public actually learns something about each candidate’s position on the issues and then have them engage in a more serious discussion of their policies.

Editorial: Brock's role as challenger

Posted on October 18, 2012 |
By Angelo Lynn



In his race for governor, Republican Randy Brock has failed to gain traction on an issue that should have been a slam-dunk: challenging Gov. Peter Shumlin on his plans to move the state to a universal health care system.

We have been supporters of Gov. Shumlin’s proposals, and continue to be, but the consequences of the proposed changes are unclear and continued debate could reveal serious flaws. In our political system, that should be the job of the challenger and of the opposition party.

Editorial: Fear in place of passion

Posted on October 11, 2012 |
By Angelo Lynn



In the wake of the first presidential debate, rank and file of the Democrats are likely less enamored with President Obama than they have been since his election four years ago. His lackluster performance in that debate, his failure to defend his policies and to point out obvious falsehoods by Mitt Romney have temporarily cost the president the enthusiastic support of his base.

Editorial: Treading on a slippery slope

Posted on October 11, 2012 |
By Angelo Lynn



The Middlebury selectboard’s decision to remove language in the town plan that caps retail stores at 50,000 square feet may be treading on a more slippery slope than they think. The board made the decision in a 4-1 vote Tuesday night, maintaining that the town is buying a little room to discuss the issue, which can later be confirmed within its zoning regulations.

Editorial: If I say it isn't so, is it?

Posted on October 8, 2012 |
By Angelo Lynn



You have to hand it to Mitt Romney in that first debate: his logic was impeccable.

It went something like this: “No, Mr. President, you can’t say my tax cut proposals will create a $5 trillion national deficit over 10 years or that I’ll have to increase taxes on the middle class and slash important benefits to them, if I now say that I won’t let that happen.

“And I‘m saying now that I won’t raise taxes on the middle class and I won’t pass tax cuts that will increase the deficit.”

The district school board announced a review of that proposal for Tuesday night’s board meeting and publicized it as the final public meeting before a firm amount would be warned.

EB-5 funding: Dare to think big

Posted on October 1, 2012 |
By Angelo Lynn



Let’s get to the take home moment first, then we’ll back into the ground-breaking news last week concerning the $500 million economic development initiative launched in the Northeast Kingdom: Dare to think big; all it takes to make it a reality here is vision, enthusiasm and shoe leather.

Keep that in mind as you read the details of the $500 million package that could produce up to 10,000 jobs (5,000 permanent) in a section of the state that has historically seen high unemployment and a stagnant economy.

Editorial: Big box stores, small towns and the lessons learned

Posted on September 27, 2012 |
By Angelo Lynn



At issue with the five-year update of Middlebury’s town plan is a crucial question: should the town keep a cap limiting retail stores to 50,000 square feet.

The measure has been part of the town plan for several years now, and was initially adopted to prevent the location of a Wal-Mart, or any other big-box store, to locate on the town’s outskirts or become the anchor of another strip-type mall on the town’s periphery. If past surveys are an accurate reflection of the public mood, most residents do not want the town to become a haven for big box stores.

Clippings: Learning to listen in a narcissistic land

Posted on September 27, 2012 |
By Angelo Lynn



In an essay written by a Ripton 15-year-old student contemplating the changes she faced moving from her middle school of 26 students to the 600-plus students at Middlebury Union High School, she touched on a striking revelation that many adults would do well to ponder: through her studies she had gained a sensitivity to the world around her.
