A Solution to Our City’s Most Pressing Needs

A Solution to Our City’s Most Pressing Needs

vt-world
To The Editor, I am writing in support of the proposed parking garage and hotel in downtown Montpelier. This thoughtfully crafted proposal offers a solution to our city’s most pressing needs. The new garage will bring much-needed relief to the current parking nightmare, without compromising Montpelier’s reputation as a walkable city. The net increase of 160 parking spaces will ensure that more residents and visitors can access our downtown and frequent our local businesses. And as a centralized parking structure, individuals and families can avoid driving in circles to find open street parking, alleviating much of the traffic caused on Main and State street today. With a new hote…

Fahrenheit 11/9: **1/2 When 22nd Century historians teach a lesson about the 2016 election, they’ll only need one primary source document. In the autumn leading up to the vote, Michael Moore wrote an essay entitled “5 Reasons Trump Will Win.” Moore recognized that Donald Trump was the “Roger & Me” of presidential candidates. His message was music to the ears of forgotten Rust Belt workers who were fed up with globalization and the New World Order. Trump criticized arrogant coastal elites for passing NAFTA, leading to the deindustrialization of the once vibrant American Midwest. He offered classical Progressive solutions: more worker-friendly trade deals and protectionist tariffs…

Both Gun Owners and Non-Gun Owners Must Show Our Respect

Dear Editor, Governor Phil Scott is seeking a second term as our govern. He has been criticized by the gun constituency for recently signing new gun restrictions into law. We the public need laws that try to stop the wild proliferation of random school massacres in our country. - The Fair Haven incident this past spring, a very dose call, is a case in point. lt put Gov. Scott between a rock and a hard place. He knew this legislation would disappoint some gun owners but knew that he had a higher call to answer to all the citizens of the state of Vermont. He has an obligation, duty and responsibility to all Vermonters in protecting their safety and well-being. He could not, therefore, be fa…

Guest Opinion: Balance is the Key to Economic Vitality

By Betsy Bishop Despite the reported rancor around the budget in the 2018 legislative session, the Vermont Chamber had a very successful year, proving that the Republican Administration and the Democratic leaders of the Legislature can work together for the betterment of Vermont’s economy. It’s important that our elected leaders continue to find progress in this area because according to the recent VPR/PBS poll, the economy is the top issue for Vermonters. That means they want better job opportunities with competitive wages and flexible benefits as well as a place they can afford to live, increasing their purchasing power. Our elected leaders joined forces this past session resulting in s…

Dear Editor: As Co Executive Director at the Family Center of Washington County, the Parent Child Center for Central Vermont, I wanted to write in support of the Vermont Parent Child Center Network. I passionately believe in the promise of every child and family reaching their full potential and making sure they have the right supports to help them on their way. This is exactly what we do at the Family Center, and it is at the heart of the work done at Parent Child Centers across the state. Despite the critical importance of the prevention work we do each day, Parent Child Centers are desperately underfunded. It is time to fully fund the essential state services Parent Child Centers deliv…

Kitchen Trash

By G. E. Shuman Around my house I’m the one who takes out the garbage. It’s just always been that way. At one time I tried to get that to be one of my kids’ jobs, but somehow it never got done on time or when it got full or something else happened that made me give up on the kids’ chore idea. Ever since, I have just done it when it needs to be done. Some time ago, (I guess everything happened ‘some’ time ago.) I found myself with the pleasant job, (sarcasm) of actually having to paw through one of those big black bags of trash after I had already put it in the outdoor trash can. I don’t remember the reason I was there under the carport with my head nearly in that bag, but there I was.…

Hearts Beat Loud: ***1/2

It is not easy to maintain a relationship with your adult relatives. First off, there are money issues. If you lent your relative money and now you don’t like him so much and he is ducking you, that’s a bummer and things may never get better. Second, you can easily grow apart. If you don’t actively find interests and activities to share with your parents and children, your relationship can slowly disintegrate. I have a better relationship with my father than my sister does. Is it because we love each other more? I don’t know. What I do know is that we talk about CBS’s Survivor, the stock market, or baseball together every day on the phone. And my sister doesn’t have anything t…

By Todd Washburne I love life. I love walking the streets of Montpelier. I love the art galleries because There is so much beauty in the visual paintings And photos that i can quiet the noise in my head. Gail has be viewing sculptures by walking around it And toughing it and just enjoying the beauty of it. I love my life because even though I have autism I have been introduced to classical music and again the world disappears in the melodies of Bach and Brahms and all the great composers that I have learned to love. I love my life because I go to baseball games and go to school and eat ice cream and hot dogs and junk food and just enjoy life…

Vermont Humane Federation Opposes Rawhide Rodeo 

vt-world
To The Editor, The Vermont Humane Federation (VHF) opposes the presentation of Rawhide Rodeo at Thunder Road in Barre. We urge Vermonters to boycott this event and to contact Thunder Road and its co-sponsors to let them know that cruelty to animals is not entertainment. Rawhide Rodeo will feature many standard rodeo events that recreate, and grossly exaggerate, methods used by cowboys in the old west to break horses and work livestock. Unlike working livestock, however, rodeo animals are sent into the ring, often after being repeatedly shocked with cattle prods, many with bucking straps cinched tightly around their genitalia, thus ensuring that they will buck continuously, which itself…
