Montpelier Area Enhances Experience for Bicyclists

Editor, I’m writing to express my thanks for a variety of recent improvements that benefit bicyclists in and around Montpelier. Significant pavement patching has been done to Northfield Street to reduce the number of holes and large cracks that were dangerous for bicyclists. Similar pavement patches have been applied to Barre Street between Sabin’s...

Public Libraries

Editor, One of the things that fascinates me in the USA is public libraries. Books have to me an irresistible power. Books are my faithful friends, always there, ready to help, giving themselves with no reserve, never asking for something in return. I was born in Genoa, Italy, in 1929. As I was growing up, all I could find to read were booklets of...

A Bernie Presidency

Editor, I am writing this letter in support of socialist, progressive, liberal, democrat Bernie Sanders for President of the United States. This may come as a shock to many who know me as a libertarian and Republican. How could I possibly support Bernie Sanders?

Cabot School Reconstruction Dilemma

Editor, When I opened my Cabot Chronicle this month, I was surprised to see a defamatory letter to the editor about my “Sense of Community” commentary from May’s edition. In that letter I was grossly misrepresented as saying “Cabot High School does not contribute to Cabot’s Sense of Community.” For anyone who actually read my personal commentary la...

Thank you to Bikers For Beth!

Editor, On May 17, 2015, I was blessed and honored to be one of the recipients of the Seventh Annual Beth Hemenway Memorial Ride and Poker Run, that benefits adults battling cancer. To say that the event was a success would be an understatement. It was a perfect day, beautiful weather, and a large number of riders (approx. 170) came out to support...

Solar Expansion in Vermont Must be Done Responsibly

Editor, There is currently a controversy in Taftsville regarding the installation of a commercial solar farm by an out-of-state developer on a scenic Rte 4 byway and Historic District. It is a village historic neighborhood. This will be happening in all of our towns across the state. I moved to Vermont 20 years ago and love the beauty of this state...
