Editorial: Minter takes early stand on gun legislation in Vermont

Posted on June 23, 2016 |
By Angelo Lynn



Give Democrat gubernatorial candidate Sue Minter credit for being out-front pushing sensible gun-control legislation and helping to change the conversation among candidates running for governor.

Minter has called for stronger gun-safety legislation in Vermont since the mass shootings in Charlotte, N.C. a year ago. She has advocated for more thorough background checks for those purchasing a gun, and most recently for a ban on selling assault weapons for non-military purposes.

Editorial: A show of political resolve

Posted on June 23, 2016 |
By Angelo Lynn



House Democrats in the nation’s capital displayed a modicum of civil disobedience Wednesday by taking over the House floor and demanding action on gun control measures that 85 to 90 percent of Americans support.

Yet on Monday, the Republican-controlled Senate defeated two measures brought by Democrats that would have banned the sale of guns to those on the federal terror watch list, and expanded background checks for online and gun-show purchases.

Posted on June 20, 2016 |
By Haviland Smith



Fifty-one State Department officials have just signed an internal memo protesting U.S. policy in Syria, calling for targeted U.S. military strikes against the regime of Bashar al Assad and urging regime change as the only way to defeat ISIS.

Editorial: Orlando's tragedy, GOP's folly, Trump's transgressions

Posted on June 16, 2016 |
By Angelo Lynn



In the aftermath of the Orlando massacre late Saturday night, what should appall all Americans is Trump’s assault on the basic values of Americanism — our respect for common decency, our sense of justice and tolerance of religious beliefs. Trump’s lack thereof was an embarrassment to many top leaders of the Republican Party, and an outrage to almost everyone else in the U.S. and the western world. Even House Speaker Paul Ryan, the leading congressional Republican, rejected Trump’s inflammatory rhetoric and his call for a ban on Muslims entering the country.

Editorial: Father's Day means waves of joy

Posted on June 16, 2016 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



Another Sunday celebration for fathers snuck up on me again — in between the latest outrage on the campaign trail, high school graduations, the tag end of a legislative session and governor’s veto, hosting members of the Opera Company of Middlebury, getting the boats ship-shape for summer, desperately trying to get a few miles on my bike legs so I can do an upcoming century, running, planting the last of the flower garden, mowing and weeding, weeding, weeding.

Editorial: S.260: The rest of the story

Posted on June 13, 2016 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



The late conservative radio personality Paul Harvey used to a have a program called “The Rest of the Story” in which he introduced a story and then he told the “story behind the story.”

The governor’s veto of the so-called solar-siting bill, S.230, and the subsequent passage of S.260 last Thursday would have made great fodder for Harvey’s program.

Editorial: Clinton + Bernie's revolution

Posted on June 9, 2016 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



After Tuesday’s determining primaries, in which Hilary Clinton won convincingly in California and New Jersey and even slipped past Bernie Sanders in South Dakota, the die is cast: Clinton will be the nominee. She has won the majority of the pledged delegates, she has won more states and contests, her steadfast support is across more demographic sectors of the population and far stronger in the most populated regions of the nation. She also has a sure lead among the Democratic Superdelegates, as well she should. She earned it.

Editorial: GOP’s Turner sends anti-business message by politicizing S.230

Posted on June 8, 2016 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



Rep. Don Turner, R-Milton, is conducting a public lesson on how to politicize legislation, rather than simply fixing a problem and getting the job done.

And Turner, the leading House Republican, is also teaching Vermonters how the state gets viewed as anti-business.

Editorial: Lisman's negativity rings false

Posted on June 6, 2016 |
By Angelo Lynn



In a recent mailer to registered Vermont Republicans, gubernatorial candidate Bruce Lisman attacked Lt. Gov. Phil Scott, who is also running to capture the GOP primary for governor, as being too complicit in support of Democrat Gov. Peter Shumlin’s policies.

Posted on June 1, 2016 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



As Porter Medical Center rights it ship under interim CEO Dr. Fred Kniffin, there is an exciting opportunity for the community to participate in the hospital’s future — and a pressing reason for the average resident to be increasingly engaged.
