Jessie Raymond: Bad tire sensors leave me deflated

Posted on April 23, 2015 |
By Jessie Raymond



Last week, I spent $102 to get my car fixed. Or, more accurately, I spent $102 to replace two faulty tire-pressure sensors that had triggered an ominous-looking amber dashboard light. The light erroneously indicated that one or more of my tires was dangerously low.

My tires were fine.

Perhaps you are familiar with that warning light: It’s a sort of horseshoe shape with the ends pointing up. It’s ripply on the bottom, with an exclamation point in the middle, meaning “Hey, pay attention, this is super important!”

Greg Dennis: Joni Mitchell, a life in song

Posted on April 23, 2015 |
By Greg Dennis



Get ready to say goodbye to Joni Mitchell.

The esteemed singer-songwriter was recently hospitalized after being found unconscious at her Southern California home. She is a survivor of childhood polio, 60 years of smoking, 50 years of fame (she called it “a glamorous misunderstanding”) and Morgellon’s syndrome.

Mitchell may not be long for this world. But she will leave behind a legacy of song that will outlast the century.

Opinion: Students' articles should have been better researched

Posted on April 23, 2015 |
By Peter Grant



Your pullout section, “The Bird’s Eye View,” has articles that need a lot more research before printing.

I hope other students at Mount Abraham Union High School can fill in the gap.

One article was on gun control and it seems the only research done for it was borrowing only from the NRA.

We all know that the NRA is in the business of helping sell guns and is not concerned about deaths caused by them.

There are few things less understood and less intuitive than the EB-5 program that continues to add the growth essential to the prosperity of Jay Peak and the surrounding environs of Franklin and Orleans counties, as well as projects in Addison County and throughout rural Vermont.

Guest editorial: School consolidation plan less effective if it is voluntary

Posted on April 20, 2015 |
By Emerson Lynn



If the education reform bill passed by the House is what is eventually approved by the Legislature and signed into law by the governor, Vermont will have made some significant progress in the march toward a more efficient, less costly education system. It will also put us in the position of being able to use our resources to improve educational outcomes.

Opinion: Writer's criticism failed to recognize the big picture

Posted on April 20, 2015 |
By Wayne Michaud



I am writing in response to Rustan Swenson’s letter in the April 13 edition, “PSB has licensed the desecration of Green Mountains.” Mr. Swenson sounds off on what he sees as the destruction of the Green Mountains and of Vermont’s landscape, blaming it on the PSB’s granting of solar installations, fracked gas pipelines, and presumably industrial wind towers on ridgelines (though wind by name is never mentioned) mainly by out-of-state or foreign corporations in the name of renewable energy.

Opinion: Repeat offenders in Vermont avoid strict punishment

Posted on April 20, 2015 |
By Jonathan and Tracy Himmel Isham



Last week, a drunk driver killed a beloved community member. Readers of this newspaper know that repeat violators rarely face the kind of strict punishment that would deter them from jumping behind the wheel when they are drunk and/or have no license. Your April 1, 2015, Superior Court Log included the following:
