Opinion: Addition of women to Middlebury selectboard backed

Posted on February 26, 2014 |
By Ruth Hardy



Through my work over the past year as a public official in Middlebury, it has become abundantly clear to me that many in people in power in our town are unwilling to respect or include the voices of women in their work.

Opinion: Brandon must learn its lesson on budget planning

Posted on February 26, 2014 |
By Phyllis Reed



I recently attended the candidates’ forum in Brandon and found the word “transparency” used repeatedly. I held the question back that I wanted to ask to find out if the candidates truthfully thought the proposed budget was, in fact, “transparent.” The reason I held back was because three of the four candidates are incumbents. Of course they would think it is; they approved it.

Opinion: Middlebury town office deal is too good to pass up

Posted on February 24, 2014 |
By Ted Scheu



I will be voting for the new town hall plan. I have heard the pro and con voices — many measured and thoughtful — and none of the alternatives being offered stack up financially, practically and aesthetically for me. To my pocketbook, to my reason and to my eye, this deal is a win-win-win.
