The Movie Review: Money Monster

Posted on May 19, 2016 |
By Addison Independent



film Money Monster vert.jpg

Money Monster; Running time: 1:38; Rating: R

“Money Monster” is both appealing and aggravating. Appealing because Julia Roberts and George Clooney always deliver for our pleasure, aggravating because once the theme is established, it is painted in primary colors so strong that it loses the force of the point it is making. The point? The rot of Wall Street.

Farmers support $50M antiturst settlement

Posted on May 19, 2016 |
By Tom Benton of the St. Albans Messenger



BURLINGTON — More than 30 farmers were in federal court this past Friday to express their views on a proposed $50 million settlement between farmers and Dairy Farmers of America (DFA) and its affiliate Dairy Marketing Services (DMS).

Several Vermont farmers spoke at a hearing to determine the fairness of the proposed settlement. Last year, U.S. District Judge Christina Reiss rejected a proposed settlement after hearing from farmers, sending the two sides back to the drawing board. Farmers in the Northeast filed the class action suit seven years ago.

Ayer, Claire 06 RGB.jpg

MONTPELIER — Saying she wants to help train and encourage a new generation of leaders in the state’s highest chamber, longtime Addison County Sen. Claire Ayer confirmed this week that she will run for the top leadership position in the Vermont Senate.

And it looks like the Addison Democrat will have plenty of competition for the job of Senate president pro tempore — including from within her own senatorial district, which includes Addison County, Huntington and Buel’s Gore.

RIPTON — Rep. Willem Jewett, D-Ripton, told the Addison Independent this week that he will not seek re-election after 14 years representing the Addison-2 district, a tenure that saw him serve in some key House leadership positions and become a mainstay of the House Judiciary Committee.

Jewett, 52, also waged a successful and public battle against cancer, using his position in the public eye to shed more light on non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, a disease with which he was diagnosed in early 2008.

Bernie Sanders LEAD RGB.jpg

ST. ALBANS — Two years ago, Lindsay Hunn walked into an office building on South Main Street in St. Albans looking for a job in the legal world. As fate would have it, she had the address wrong and walked out as a full-time volunteer for the Vermont Democratic Party.

One year later, Hunn was hired as a field organizer in New Hampshire, making thousands of phone calls to get troops on the ground for Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders’ 2016 presidential campaign.
