Posted on July 11, 2016 |
By Fred Barnes



Explosive Fuel and Unsafe Railroad Tracks

We are all expecting a successful outcome and good service from the new railroad tunnels through downtown Middlebury next year. Also, there is talk of new railroad tracks from Rutland to Burlington to accommodate Amtrak.

Editorial: Democrats' radical idea vs. GOP's trickle-down theory

Posted on July 7, 2016 |
By Angelo Lynn



Give Vermont’s Democratic gubernatorial candidates an A-plus for optimism. They are doers, intent on making Vermont stronger, healthier, wealthier and smarter. With just a few degrees of separation between their stances, they would work to provide free tuition at state colleges, increase the minimum wage to $15 per hour, continue to build the state’s infrastructure (roads, bridges and railroads), strengthen downtowns, expand early childhood education, create more affordable housing, reduce Vermonter’s reliance on fossil fuels and create a more dynamic state economy.

Opinion: University takes 'whacky' stance

Posted on July 7, 2016 |
By Ivan St. George



UNC Chapel Hill recently joined the fray and released a language “guide to microaggression.” Complimenting a woman’s shoes, using the terms golf outing, Christmas, boyfriend, girlfriend and husband and wife (among many others) are now considered microaggressions by the whacky nut cases on college campus. Why would anyone pay any amount of money to send kids to these stifling dungeons of oppressive thought police???
