Posted on October 3, 2013 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



In the ongoing discussion of the proposed municipal building in Middlebury, which tentatively has a bond vote set for December, an important assurance was made this week by the selectboard: It would delay the vote if it feels residents are not adequately informed.

Editorial: How essential is government?

Posted on October 3, 2013 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



Ever think the federal government shutdown won’t matter to you, your neighbors or the state? Consider some of the statewide effects:

• About 4,200 federal employees work in Vermont; of those it’s estimated about 1,000 are subject to furlough — meaning they are laid off without pay.

• Of the 1,000 National Guard members in Vermont, about 450 are now on furlough.

Editorial: Shutdown puts GOP at risk

Posted on September 30, 2013 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



Here’s a quick recap of the looming federal government shutdown and why it’s unique.

At midnight Monday, Oct. 1, non-essential parts of the U.S. government will be shut down. Of the nation’s two million federal workers, about 40 percent  (800,000) will be furloughed for an unknown amount of time. About 1.4 million active duty military personnel will remain on the job, but most civilians working in the Defense Department face furloughs.

Editorial: Solving the health care puzzle

Posted on September 26, 2013 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



As Vermonters begin to decipher the new world of health care through Vermont Health Connect and the health care exchange, and Republicans in Congress try — for the 42nd time — to dismantle the nation’s health care law at the expense of shutting down government, it’s worth stepping back to view the big picture: that is, how this nation’s health care compares to the rest of the world.

Editorial: The sweet fragrance of the Gospel

Posted on September 26, 2013 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



“It is not necessary to talk about these issues all the time. The dogmatic and moral teachings of the church are not all equivalent... We have to find a balance, otherwise even the moral edifice of the church is likely to fall like a house of cards, losing the freshness and fragrance of the Gospel.”

Editorial: Shorelands Protection Bill — A matter of public trust

Posted on September 23, 2013 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



To understand Vermonters’ concerns with the proposed shoreline protection bill, H.526 as passed by the House this past session, you have to answer just one question: Do you trust the Agency of Natural Resources to create the rules and administer it in a way that doesn’t create an unreasonable burden?

To most shoreline homeowners the answer is no.

Guest editorial: Let Putin share the burden

Posted on September 19, 2013 |
By Emerson Lynn



Egos are wonderful things in presidential beings. And the bigger they are, the more important it is that they continue to expand and that everyone knows from whence their divine gift flows. That, in part, is the personal ballast behind Russian President Vladimir Putin’s letter to the American people published in Thursday’s New York Times.

Editorial: Is Addison County ready to be a year-round rec destination?

Posted on September 16, 2013 |

In a speech that entertained the 100 members present at last Thursday’s annual meeting of the Addison County Chamber of Commerce, renown sports writer Alex Wolff painted an exciting portrait of tomorrow’s Addison County: a county-wide destination resort steeped in Vermont’s rural traditions, blessed with farm-to-table cuisine, and focused on outdoor recreation.

Editorial: Theatrics and the pipeline

Posted on September 12, 2013 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



The two objective arguments to the natural gas pipeline in Addison County can be broadly defined as: 1) those opponents who consider the Earth’s long-term environmental health as more important than the region’s short-term economy; and 2) those proponents who put the region’s economy first, believing that a strong economy is the means to transition to renewable energy.

Neither is wrong.

Editorial: Rail upgrades should prompt a changing mindset in Vermont

Posted on September 9, 2013 |
By Angelo Lynn



Good news came last Thursday in the form of a $8.9 million grant to rebuild 20 miles of state-owned Vermont Railway track between Leicester and Rutland. It’s part of the $18.5 million project that will refurbish the tracks between Burlington and Rutland and allow the trains to move at higher speeds. The hope is the improved rail will spur economic development.
