Clippings: Proudly of the farming generation

Posted on June 24, 2010 |
By George Altshuler



A year ago, The New York Times reported on the growing number of idealistic college students who spend summers working on organic farms.

The article described a few different members of my generation. An English major from Kenyon College declared that, after his summer farming, he was finally comfortable with not having been born in the ’60s.

Politically Thinking: Beating Dubie — tough but possible

Posted on June 24, 2010 |
By Eric L. Davis



Vermont’s primary election is just two months away. Whichever of the five Democratic gubernatorial candidates wins the primary will face a challenging campaign against Republican Brian Dubie. Dubie can start his general election campaign over the summer, while the Democrats battle each other in the primary. With more than $800,000 already on hand, Dubie should be able to raise $1.5 million. The eventual Democratic nominee will need to catch up to Dubie in fund-raising.

Did Rep. Barton really say that?

Posted on June 21, 2010 |
By Angelo Lynn



Last Thursday, Rep. Joe Barton, R-Texas, dropped a bomb of a comment that we’re sure he wishes he could take back. What he said wasn’t a major event; rather, it was a single comment during a day-long hearing as the House grilled BP oil chief Tony Haywood over his role in the environmental disaster. His comments were among dozens — most of which took the side of those Americans whose lives had been upended by the obscene about of oil gushing from the bottom of the Gulf each day.

Editorial: Dunne: Unique position gives candidate fresh perspectives

Posted on June 17, 2010 |
By Angelo Lynn



In the race for governor, Democratic candidate Matt Dunne stands alone in the crowd for one clear reason: He is outside the political beltway — the other four Democrats and Republican Brian Dubie are entrenched in state politics and have been for a long time. The question is whether that’s a help or hindrance, and many analysts, as well as Dunne himself, see it as a major plus.

Editorial: Of tax injustice and big oil

Posted on June 17, 2010 |
By Angelo Lynn



News this week that Exxon-Mobil not only paid no U.S. taxes last year, but also a received $156 million tax refund from the federal government, won’t go over well with the average American taxpayer.

Clippings: Reflecting on the 'not much' years

Posted on June 17, 2010 |
By Trent Campbell



A friend asked me the other day how long it has been since I graduated from high school. I did the quick math in my head (I graduated in 1982), and came up with 28 years. I hesitated saying the number out loud because it didn’t seem possible. Twenty-eight years? I did the math again and, darn it, I still came up with 28.

Around the bend: Airlines come up mediocre at best

Posted on June 17, 2010 |
By Jessie Raymond



On a recent family trip to Oklahoma, I developed a whole new admiration for, and horror of, the airline industry. No other business I know of can provide so little for so much and still be in such high demand. (As a cell phone owner, I don’t say this lightly.)

Airline travel has become increasingly expensive, inconvenient and exhausting. It offers little incentive to keep customers coming back. Yet the airports are packed.

Guest Editorial: On courting Muslim moderates

Posted on June 14, 2010 |
By Haviland Smith



In late March, a little noticed, almost unreported event took place in the Middle East. The government of Qatar forced out the moderate leadership of one of Islam’s most popular, moderate websites and is reshaping it into a religiously more conservative media outlet. They have started by running news releases instead of the moderate and diverse content that the site, IslamOnline, was known for.

Editorial: Solar farms: Let's embrace the idea, but exercise caution

Posted on June 10, 2010 |
By Angelo Lynn



That Addison County might be the location of one of the state’s largest solar farms is exciting news in as much as it is another example of “green energy” being built for a future that is not so directly tied to fossil fuels. It is exciting, too, because when new technologies for such basic commodities as energy are used locally, that often sparks a corresponding interest in jobs related to that field — among students of solar energy, as well as niche businesses that might one-day feed into the solar energy industry.

Clippings: Son inspires father to go the distance

Posted on June 10, 2010 |
By John Flowers



I always thought I’d be able to tell folks exactly where I was when I decided to run my first long-distance race. You know, one of those sobering, psych-yourself-up moments you never forget.

Turned out to be quite the anti-climax, really. We were riding in the car around four months ago when our son, Mark, blurted out, “Dad, we’re running the half-marathon in Burlington this May.”

Oh.

“Thanks for signing me up, son,” I believe I muttered under my breath. “Did you put me down for the firing squad, too?”
