Vermont Yankee is in Good Hands with NorthStar

Editor, Since the details of the plan to sell Entergy Nuclear Vermont Yankee to an expert decommissioning firm were made public earlier this month, there have been some misinformed media reports and public statements claiming that buyer NorthStar has no experience decommissioning nuclear power plants.

Let’s Trust City Council to do the Right Thing

Editor, Let’s remember that Mayor Hollar and the three City Council members who voted not to renew Bill Fraser’s contract had information that we citizens don’t have. The Council members aren’t at liberty to discuss the particular reasons why they reached their decisions. I don’t think it’s fair or appropriate to attack them relentlessly for a vote...

Without consulting me, she drastically altered our cable agreement. Suddenly, we have a fraction of the channels we had before. Now we have the networks and little else. “Kelly,” I exclaimed, “thank you! This will abs...

Reiss’s Pieces

By Judy Reiss Back when I was a child, you went to the doctor that your parents picked. And as far as I can remember, no one asked you if you liked him, and it was always a him. Yep, you went to this local doctor whether you liked him or not. But as I grew older, I realized that you didn’t have to trust your life to a doctor that you didn’t like…or...

The Next Healthcare Victim? Quite Possibly You

Editor, A healthcare crisis is coming down the road at very high speed. Getting rid of the ACA (Obamacare) is one of our new president’s top priorities. That will end subsidized health insurance under the ACA, and the ACA’s expansion of Medicaid. Millions of people, including many, many thousands of Vermonters, will rapidly become unable to afford...

Hop Down the Rabbit Hole at the Cheshire Cat — A World of One-of-a-Kind Clothing Designs and Art

By Matt Coutu Much like the fictional Cheshire Cat character from Alice in Wonderland, the clothing store in downtown Montpelier, can be a tad difficult to find.
