By Eric Davis



Lt. Gov. Phil Scott has told reporters that he will make an announcement in the fall about his plans for 2016. Scott is seriously interested in running for governor, but he needs some time to work through issues related to the ownership and control of the business he co-owns and manages.

Clippings: Car selection considered carefuly

Posted on July 9, 2015 |
By Trent Campbell



A couple of weeks ago I traded in my 2003 Honda Pilot for a 2012 Honda CRV. The Pilot had served me well but it had 210,000 miles on it, rusted fenders, a broken air conditioner, a busted rear windshield wiper, one door that could only be locked or unlocked manually, and some electronic safety system harness doohickey under the driver’s seat that went haywire and prevented the car from passing inspection. So about six months ago I decided it was time and I got all excited about looking for a new car.

Opinion: Boater befouls Lake Champlain

Posted on July 9, 2015 |
By Mary Kerr



“What’s Your Watermark?” a film dedicated to the positive ways in which all Vermonters by observing simple responsible practices can protect and preserve the purity of the Vermont’s precious water for present and future generations, was broadcast on PBS recently. As a longtime Vermont resident, sailor and year-round lakeside home owner, I was thrilled to observe how we can better protect our most precious resource.

Opinion: Supreme Court marriage ruling seen as 'transforming'

Posted on July 9, 2015 |
By Judy and Michael Olinick



After the jubilation of June 26, most of the country seems to have accepted the Supreme Court’s marriage equality ruling as a matter of course. Lee Kahrs’ reflection is an important reminder of how long this resolution has been awaited and how transforming it is, even for a gay Vermonter who has been in a civil union and happily married for several years.

Opinion: No place for muscle cars when the world is warming

Posted on July 9, 2015 |
By Wayne Michaud



There it is, pictured right on the editorial page of the Addy Indy June 29 issue: a 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat, replete with air intakes all over the hood, being “tested” at the recent Mopar Magic event at Foster Motors. The ultimate in muscle cars. Sexy. Alluring to young men and not so young men. Why, it’s 1970 all over again.

Peter Burrows: Summer part of education answer

Posted on July 6, 2015 |
By Peter Burrows



Burrows MUHS6473.jpg

The end of the school year is always of time of reflection, after the frenetic and celebratory air that surrounds graduation, awards ceremonies, and year-end community events. As an educator, you become accustomed to this cycle, of stewarding students throughout the year and then letting go, and there is an almost hushed silence around our schools as the wave of excitement, learning, and social interaction recedes, as it gathers strength to return in August.

Opinion: Bristol firehouse worth supporting

Posted on July 6, 2015 |
By Porter Knight



I attended all of the site selection meetings and most of the site design meetings for the proposed Bristol Fire Station — the firefighters and community members on those committees did a thorough, transparent, and responsible job. They have been attentive to the public’s input from the very first community meetings held at the Legion in spring of 2013 to the open house and discussion forums held this spring at Holley Hall and the fire station.

Clippings: Court decision grants true equality

Posted on July 2, 2015 |
By Lee Kahrs



Vermonters are generally known for keeping to themselves, not getting into their neighbors’ business and respecting each other’s privacy. Gay Vermonters are no exception.

For the past eight years, I have kept my personal life and opinions separate from my job as the editor of The Reporter. I am a pretty private person, and I maintain a clear line separating my journalistic life and my home life, as all good journalists should. A reporter’s worst nightmare is to become the subject of the news they report.
