'Our country, right or wrong?' Critical thinking wouldn't hurt

Posted on November 16, 2009 |
By Angelo Lynn



Adding a personal story to the health care debate, Randolph Herald editor/publisher Dick Drysdale wrote the following editorial several weeks ago about a Randolph couple that had spent the summer in Canada and experienced that country’s health care system. It’s worth a read not because it tells us about the Canadian health care system, but because it reveals the shortcomings of our national bias.

Editorial: Why pundits use storylines that too often miss the story

Posted on November 5, 2009 |
By Angelo Lynn



In four elections Tuesday, voters in Virginia, New Jersey, New York and California showed a strong bias for local and personal politics that had little ties to the national scene, though too many media pundits tried to make it seem like the tide was changing across the nation’s political landscape.

While headlines proclaimed that it “wasn’t 2008 anymore,” and that the Republican “sweep” was a warning to Democrats of things to come in the mid-term elections next year, we would hope most readers understand that the headlines serve the political pundits better than the public.

Editorial: Recipe for economic failure

Posted on October 29, 2009 |
By Angelo Lynn



Nothing will be pleasant when tackling the task of shoring up the state unemployment compensation fund. Sacrifices will have to be made by the business community in the form of increased taxes into the fund, and by workers who have lost their jobs.

As compassionate Vermonters, the notion that unemployed workers may have to do with less is tough to hear, but we all must brace for the pain that comes with shared sacrifice.

The bottom line starts at 350

We shouldn’t even have to tell you where you’re having lunch this Saturday, Oct. 24, or what you’re bringing. You should already know. I’m bringing a pot of hot pumpkin soup and maybe my apple crisp, the kind with the crunchy topping flavored with maple syrup. Can’t beat it when it’s hot. Where are we going? To the gigantic Middlebury potluck lunch, and while the food will be delicious, the cause is the driving force.

Railway tunnel offers potential to reshape Midd’s downtown

Posted on October 8, 2009 |
By Angelo Lynn



A proposed railway tunnel in downtown Middlebury connecting the Main Street underpass to the Merchants Row underpass is an imaginative vision that deserves wholehearted support from town officials and community residents — and creates the opportunity to address adjacent problems that have gone unresolved for far too long.

No cakewalk for Democrats

Posted on October 1, 2009 |

Now that Lt. Gov. Brian Dubie has announced his intentions to run for governor, the state’s political landscape has become a lot clearer — and that landscape might pose a surprisingly stiff challenge for Democrats to take back the governor’s seat.

Of Vermont's state parks and forests

Posted on September 28, 2009 |
By Angelo Lynn



In a recent commentary, Jason Gibbs, state commissioner of the Department of Forests, Parks and Recreation, wrote an upbeat piece about his department “doing everything it can to generate economic activity and create jobs.”

Not to nick-pick, but that’s a big statement — even for a politician.

But let’s come back to that in a moment.

School petition seeks change on micro level in macro world

Posted on September 24, 2009 |
By Angelo Lynn



A petition circulating throughout the UD-3 school district is imploring the Middlebury Union High School administration, board and teachers to “adopt a culture of excellence mandated at the highest administrative levels.” The petition has been greeted with enthusiasm by the board and administration, though early responses suggest that restricted finances will hamper how much can be done to effect changes on test scores that petitioners say are too low.
Certainly, current test scores validate the need for change.

A different 'call to arms'

Posted on September 21, 2009 |
By Angelo Lynn



When Vermont Commissioner of Education Armando Vilaseca visits the Vergennes Union High School board of education next week he is expected to have two key items on his agenda: school board consolidation and “school transformation.” VUHS has been a statewide leader on both issues (see story Page 1) and is deserving of the attention Vilaseca’s visit brings to the school. But we also hope the commissioner will spend a few moments talking about what the state needs to do if we are truly going to compete in the global marketplace.

The other reform deserves nudge from concerned public

Posted on September 17, 2009 |
By Angelo Lynn



While Congress is up to its neck wrangling with health care reform, the financial wizards of Wall Street are greasing the skids for a return to the high profits seen before last year’s financial meltdown, highlighted by the failure of Lehman Brothers a year ago this week. President Obama went into the den of Wall Street on Monday with the warning that the public would not stand for more reckless behavior.
