Opinion: Bray has made brilliant argument

Posted on July 7, 2014 |
By George Jaeger



Sen. Chris Bray’s brilliantly argued letter in the June 26 edition of this paper goes to the heart of the Phase II pipeline issue. This Quebec project, as he writes, is about the private use of the proposed pipeline by the International Paper Co. and therefore deserves neither a Certificate of Public Good nor the right to eminent domain.

Editorial: National water trails system could aid Lake Champlain

Posted on June 26, 2014 |
By Angelo Lynn



Here’s an idea that could help the water quality in Lake Champlain. Make the lake part of the newly designated National Water Trails System. The upside is it could bring federal aid to the cause. The downside is it would inevitably make the lake more crowded and less enjoyable for those Vermonters (and others) who recreate on the lake.

Still, if it’s an idea that could help clean up lake pollution and improve the water quality, it should be seriously considered.

Opinion: Shoreland bill fails to deliver

Posted on April 2, 2014 |
By David Bronson



These comments on some of the issues regarding the H.526 Lake Shoreland Protection Standards Bill as passed by the Vermont Senate are based on my understanding of what appears would or could be the case given what it says. The bill is proposed to go into effect July 1, 2014.

The bill lacks an exemption stating existing habitable structures and other impervious surfaces can be maintained.

Posted on February 24, 2014 |
By Florence Vincent



I’m concerned about the gas pipeline scheduled to be laid under Lake Champlain.

I’m sure by now everyone has heard about the polluted water in Charleston, W.V. What if there were a gas leak in Lake Champlain? Our communities who get their drinking water from the lake would have no water to drink, etc. There is a huge price to be paid if we put the gas line in the lake and there is any kind of problem.
