Editorial: Regional planning commission creates valuable template for solar standards

Posted on October 26, 2015 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



The Addison County Regional Planning Commission recently crafted suggested language for siting and screening standards for solar projects to insert into any community’s town plan. It is stellar work that is worthy as a statewide standard.

 The commission created two draft documents that set the parameters for appropriate siting and screening standards, and couch it in language that the Public Service Board and developers must address.

Editorial: Note to Mr. Lisman: Less Donald, more substance

Posted on October 22, 2015 |
By Angelo Lynn



Candidates running for political office can no longer claim the banner of anti-politician. Even the status as “outsider” is dubious for most. Hence it was this past Monday that Republican candidate for governor Bruce Lisman admitted to a reporter’s question that, yes, he supposed he was — since the launching of his campaign — a politician.

Editorial: Doomed to repeat mistakes?

Posted on October 19, 2015 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



Chalk up the muscular tone on the campaign trail concerning foreign policy to two factors: it’s campaign season and candidates don’t want to appear weak in the face of Russian aggression and, two, too many have forgotten the nation’s recent history or never learned it well.

Editorial: AARP’s sense of fairness?

Posted on October 15, 2015 |
By Angelo Lynn



In a letter to the editor in this issue, AARP state director Greg Marchildon responds to a guest editorial in Monday’s Addison Independent that accuses Marchildon of opposing Vermont Gas Systems’ natural gas pipeline to Middlebury so he can use it as a fundraising ploy to boost membership.

“Mr. Marchildon’s position is anything but consistent, or practical,” the editorial said. “In fact, it’s a naked ploy to do little else other than fundraising fodder for AARP.”

Guest Editorial: AARP stance on pipeline doesn't consider all angles

Posted on October 12, 2015 |
By Emerson Lynn



The Vermont Department of Public Service has struck an agreement with Vermont Gas that would allow the company to recover $134 million of the $154 million budgeted to extend its natural gas system from Colchester to Middlebury. That means the company will be forced to absorb $20 million of the project’s total cost, not the ratepayers.

There are a variety of conditions tied to the agreement, but the intent remains intact: The company intends to push forward and the department still supports the project as something that benefits Vermonters.

Editorial: How to stop the madness of gun violence

Posted on October 5, 2015 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



In the wake of the mass shooting at Umpqua Community College in Oregon last week, here are three facts that should shock America out of its reluctance to take action on gun control: an average of 92 gun-related deaths in America every day; since 1970, more Americans have died from guns than died in all U.S. wars going back to the American Revolution; more preschoolers are shot dead each year (82 in 2013) than police officers are in the line of duty (27 in 2013). Imagine, it’s more dangerous to be a preschooler in this country than a law enforcement officer.

Editorial: Randy Brock should be encouraged to run for Lt. Governor

Posted on September 28, 2015 |
By Emerson Lynn Jr.



One of the continual laments in Vermont politics is that the pool of talent is less than it should be. It’s always been a struggle to convince those most capable to give up their time and their peace of mind in exchange for the daily tumult, and often thankless task of governing.

So when we see someone with the talent, the experience and the hint of interest, it behooves us to give the person a gentle nudge.

The person with that talent and the experience is Randy Brock; our hope is to get him to run for Lieutenant Governor.
