Editorial: Sexual violence an epidemic?

Posted on July 21, 2014 |
By Susan Lynn



Editor’s note: This guest editorial was written by my sister, who is editor of the Iola Register in Iola, Kansas. It was written in late May. We reprint it because the message is timeless, and because it as pertinent today as it was two months ago, and as it will be for years to come. - Angelo Lynn

The first cue that a problem exists is denial.

That’s why someone attending Alcoholics Anonymous begins with, “Hi, I’m Susan, and I’m an alcoholic.”

Posted on July 21, 2014 |
By Sens. Kevin Mullin and Peg Flory



This week’s writers are State Sens. Kevin Mullin and Peg Flory, both of whom are Republicans representing Rutland County.

The Vermont way is for neighbors to help neighbors and communities to come together to solve challenges. Energy infrastructure, like natural gas service, is one of the most important areas for Vermonters to collaborate.

Editorial: Highway funding stalemate highlights nation's undoing

Posted on July 17, 2014 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



Recent headlines tell the story of Congressional Republicans fighting with Democrats over highway funding. Republicans, who control the House, are holding funds to the states hostage in the hopes of forcing reductions in spending — or, at least, transferring more of the cost onto states. (How that helps taxpayers we’re not sure, but Republicans could at least claim they reduced federal spending.)

Clippings: County's aging population isn't all bad news

Posted on July 16, 2014 |
By Weyland Joyner



Some state and area officials look at the aging population of Vermont as an obstacle to economic development in Addison County — as the demographic of residents 70 and older is expected to double in the next 20 years, while the 20-49-year-old demographic drops by 11 percent — but in my experience, there is an alternative, more positive story hiding in the data.

By Jessie Raymond



For the past couple of months I’ve been walking the dog on the Trail Around Middlebury or, as I like to call it, “The Trail That Runs Practically Past My House But Which, Until This Spring, I Had Been on Only Once in the Eight Years We’ve Lived There.”

Opinion: Vermonters are getting duped by pipeline

Posted on July 16, 2014 |
By Andrew Marks



In New York City, where I was born and raised, I grew up hearing about some unwitting out-of-towner buying the Brooklyn Bridge from some streetwise city shark. This happened about once a week.

If something looks, smells and feels too good to be true, wisdom tells us that it probably is.

Gaz Métro has us in their sights and are blinding us with illusion.

Fellow Countrymen, wake up: We are being sold the Brooklyn Bridge.

Opinion: Brandon voters must offer ideas on budget impasse

Posted on July 14, 2014 |
By Brian Fillioe



Does Brandon need eight police officers? No. Does Brandon need four highway guys? No. Brandon could do with less; however, just as there is a cost to employing that number of staff there is a cost to not having enough staff. Chief Brickell told the selectmen at a recent meeting the effects of less than eight police officers. And in reality there are seven officers and a school resource officer that Brandon uses during the down school time.
