Editorial: Two differing views on U.S. military involvement in Iraq

Posted on June 23, 2014 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



When former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice delivered a speech at Norwich last Thursday, she stayed true to the tune played during President George W. Bush’s eight years in office from 2000 to 2008 — that U.S. intervention in international affairs is the purview of the United States and our duty to make the world a safer place.

Editorial: Canada OKs oil pipeline to British Columbia coast as U.S. Senate committee OKs Keystone

Posted on June 19, 2014 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



 As the U.S. Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee voted 12-10 this week in support of the Canadian-based Keystone XL Pipeline that would cut through the country on its way to the Gulf of Mexico, groups in the western province of British Columbia are preparing to fight another pipeline, called the Northern Gateway, from the same tar sands region of Alberta to the BC Pacific coast.

Guest editorial: Healthcare providers have reason to be anxious

Posted on June 16, 2014 |
By Emerson Lynn



The most powerful word in the English language is the word no. That is particularly true to people and organizations who consistently depend on the word yes to get things done. When they are told no, they have to change what they do, or stop doing it.

Guest editorial: An overlooked opportunity in the education debate

Posted on June 12, 2014 |
By Rick Davis



There has been a lot of attention lately to rising education costs and how we fund education in Vermont. This is one of the most pressing issues we face. Our costs per student are one of the highest in the nation and our property taxes continue to increase beyond our capacity to pay. One indicator of the problem is that a record number of school budgets failed to pass on Town Meeting Day this year.

Guest editorial: Make your bed perfectly, and don't ring that bell

Posted on June 8, 2014 |
By Emerson Lynn



You may never look at an unmade bed the same upon reading the commencement address delivered by Naval Adm. William H. McRaven to University of Texas graduates.

It was part of his forced routine 36 years ago when he left college for basic SEAL training in Coronado, Calif. The beds had to be made perfectly. Every morning. The lesson being that even tough guys make their beds and that if you can’t “get the little things right, you will never do the big things right.”

A more vibrant GOP voice would make Vt. stronger

Posted on June 5, 2014 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



As the deadline for filing for political office in Vermont nears its June 12 cutoff, the Vermont Republican party is largely missing in action. A gubernatorial candidate is yet to be named. No notable party leaders have stepped to the fore for down-party offices, and while there is talk about working to take legislative seats, there has been little action. By comparison, the Progressive Party’s filing for 21 statewide seats and offices is far more impressive and makes the GOP look weak and disorganized.

Guest Editorial: Pledge never to forget

Posted on June 2, 2014 |
By Biddle Duke



There is a notable and unacceptable convergence this Memorial Day: a flood of news about the commitment of American soldiers abroad and of news about the mistreatment of our soldiers once they come home. It is impossible to reconcile America’s decisions to send men and women abroad to fight so that fragile nations can find their footing in a free world against America’s own failure to care for its wounded.

Editorial: Republican's retort big on criticism, but lacking courage

Posted on May 23, 2014 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



Rep. Heidi Scheuermann, R-Stowe, opted not to represent her party as the gubernatorial candidate to challenge Gov. Peter Shumlin for reelection this November, but that doesn’t mean she isn’t interested in running for the state’s top office down the road, or at least grabbing the political spotlight when she can. That seems obvious from her op-ed released at the end of last week challenging the Democrats’ estimation of their own performance this biennium.

Editorial: Lisman's choice opens up new role for Campaign Vermont

Posted on May 22, 2014 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



In state political news, the biggest announcement of the week was Bruce Lisman reporting that he would not be running for governor against Democrat incumbent Peter Shumlin. That seemingly gives Shumlin clear sailing for another two-year term. Considering the controversial issues at stake — paying for health care reform, restructuring school governance and getting school spending under control, and keeping a lid on state taxes, to name a few — it’s surprising that a strong opponent hasn’t yet emerged.
