The Month of Love

By G. E. Shuman I teach junior high and high school English (Yes, I probably am insane) at Websterville Baptist Christian.

Max’s View

Two Days, One Night ***1/2 “It’s the economy, stupid” was written on the wall of Bill Clinton’s campaign headquarters.

Energy Fighting Economic Development

Editor, If Vermont is so unwise as to make S-51 law, the total amount of energy used to heat homes, move cars and buses, and power electrical devices will be forced to shrink by 15% in 33 years.

Progress or Doomsday: Our choice.
