Hunt Safely in Turkey Season

Hunt Safely in Turkey Season

vt-world
 In Vermont, May 1st is almost as important as the opening of the firearms deer season, and while spring turkey hunting-related shootings are rare (last year’s season was incident-free) precautions are needed. Camouflage or drab colored clothing is almost mandatory to outwit a keen sighted gobbler. Unfortunately, camouflage has the same affect on other hunters as it has on the turkeys.“With a handful of exceptions, all of our incidents have been caused by hunters who didn’t positively identify the target before they pulled the trigger,” said Chris Saunders, Hunter Education Coordinator. “And the victim is usually another hunter, often a friend, trying to stalk a turkey call.”…

Pandora’s Promise ****

Pandora’s Promise ****

vt-world
 Now Available on Netflix I just watched an eye-opening documentary on Netflix about nuclear energy and how wonderful it is for mankind.“Come on, Max. Why did you let yourself get bamboozled by that right-wing corporate propaganda?”I didn’t. Believe it or not, this is an environmentalist movie. Made by environmentalists, for environmentalists.The documentary’s narrators are five former activists who used to protest nuclear power plants until they learned the other side of the argument.“If you are against nuclear power,” one narrator decisively concludes, “you are in favor of the expansion of burning fossil fuels for electricity.” That is the crux of the…

Vote ‘No’ on Revised Montpelier School Budget

Vote ‘No’ on Revised Montpelier School Budget

vt-world
 Editor: In a letter to the editor in The World urging people to vote no on the Montpelier school budget proposal in March, I ended with the statement: “It is only by saying no to the proposed school budget that there might be some hope of conveying to those who control the purse strings that we’re not in la-la land but dealing with limits – not the least of which are financial.”Well, that hope was dashed. The day after the proposed school budget was voted down, Sue Aldrich as chairwoman for the Montpelier School Board told VPR news that the loss was in part due to organized efforts to galvanize opposition.The fact is, it was an organized and well-funded group c…

In Support of a Livable Wage

In Support of a Livable Wage

vt-world
 Editor: I am writing this letter because I believe a livable wage bill should be put on the front burner.I support H.522 which would put the minimum wage up to $12.50/hr. This is a good start towards reaching a livable wage. It would give thousands of Vermonters a chance to access things like mental health services or much needed dental care, both of which are out of my reach and many of your neighbors. Shuffling money from program to program hasn’t worked in the past. This might help to stimulate the economy and give Vermonters a chance to live a more dignified life, and better take care of our families.Please join me and call your representatives about H.552.…
