Re: “What's With the Long-Empty Building at Rt. 7 and Ferry Road?

Charlotte has tried for decades to avoid the bad zoning examples that surround it that promote strip development and traffic congestion. That doesn't mean the town has found the answer and that there aren't improvements that can be made to the zoning. But give the town a little credit for promoting the concentration of commercial into its two village centers and a small industrial/commercial area avoiding the costly and unsightly results elsewhere on Route 7.

Re: “The Parmelee Post: Work Begins to Reconstruct the Vermont Bubble

Very clever, enjoyed it. At first I thought it was going to be about the Winooski Bubble that was proposed by futurist Buckminister Fuller. Back in 1979 the town was almost covered in a giant dome to reduce oil consumption and save on heating costs. Maybe today's "bubble" is preventing too much hot air from seeping in.

Re: “The Mulvaney-Stanaks: A Family Divided Over a Vermont Election

too little too late....I'm not disillusioned, not having been illusion about politics for some time. Vermont ridge lines are our Standing Rock as are Lake Champlain, the National Forest and the Conn. River watershed where dam license renewals threaten to increase capacity.

As in Dan Kerrigan's comments, "when hope is lost persevere..."

Re: “Language Lessons: A Montréal-Born Mom Reflects on Learning — and Teaching Her Kids — French

Great story! As one who 1st learned and then forgot French due to relocations I have always had an interest in multiculturalism and felt I was missing something by not being able to communicate in several languages.

Re: “Vermonters Swarm Into Montpelier for Women’s March

I am so sorry that money spent on this march was not instead used to assist women like my sisters and families in VT. To march against something unknow because it is change which they fear instead of actions which show they will not tolerate system abuse makes me wonder how many have read the Constitution of the US and VT, how many have read the history books telling of what our Founders wrote and did to change America and VT. Bernie didn't help my carpenter nephews, self employed when I called for help with Obama's insurance that would cost them mor ethan their earnings would allow and still not give medical coverage because of the $10,000 deductible. If they really want good government don't agree with programs that do nothing for the working poor.

Re: “Scenes From the Women’s March on Montpelier

The Vermont spirit of caring for each other is strong. Those who say "Stop protesting, and give Trump a chance" have been duped. Many others see the man for what he is: a manipulator, a liar, a fraud, and an instrument of a very destructive and dehumanizing force. Yesterday was great!

Re: “The Internet Branded Her a Racist. Does It Matter That She’s Bipolar?

Seven Days you realize she is playing you right? On her Linkedin account she is claiming she was hacked. Now it was just a bad joke?
Which is it? Hacked, joke or crazy?

Re: “Scenes From the Women’s March on Montpelier

I was there today in Montpelier. And yes I have a job. I am a nurse who has served the people of this country for more than 40 years. I know what it looks like like right here in Vt when people are denied healthcare. I have also volunteered in Haiti so I have seen both ends of the spectrum. Trump is bad news for healthcare.

Re: “Scenes From the Women’s March on Montpelier

the only way the country moves forward is if millions of us from every part of the country stand up together to resist the divisive authoritarian destructive agenda of the Donald Trump.

You mean stand up together against "them" or as Hillary classified "them" the basket of deplorables. How unifying.

Re: “Vermonters Swarm Into Montpelier for Women’s March

Bernie is a sell out and needs to shut up. He needs to step aside so a real leader can take his spot and move the country forward. If you believe Bernie has anyone's best interest at heart other than his own you might need a brain transplant. Having him at your girl power rally deligitimises your entire event.

Re: “Vermonters Swarm Into Montpelier for Women’s March

I love all of this and it gives me such hope with one exception, which is why was a man who helped create the vitriolic, partisan rhetoric with no regard for facts the microphone? Bernie Sanders is just as responsible for Donald Trump as anyone who voted for him, maybe more. Why, at the Women's March are we listening to the angry white man?

Re: “Scenes From the Women’s March on Montpelier

To all of you that are shouting that you don't have equal freedom or rights or safety try having your march in Saudi Arabia or China or any other non-western country. Then you would realize how good we all have it here.

Re: “The Internet Branded Her a Racist. Does It Matter That She’s Bipolar?

Bipolar might affect how much and how often you post. It might even lower inhibitions so that you post things you truly feel but in a more balanced mood would refrain from. It doesnt' make you grotesquely insensitive or make you think that slavery is funny. It doesn't make you cruel or selfish (though it might make you act out more of your natural selfishness). So, no, it doens't matter whether she is bipolar. What she wrote is what she thinks is funny.

Re: “Scenes From the Women’s March on Montpelier

So your plan is to resist and protest for the next 4 years at least? Don't any of you activists have jobs that require you to show up. Once again you need to stop shouting and start listening. President Trump spoke yesterday about returning the power to the people. When he says that he is referring to you, me and every other American. How about giving the guy a chance. We are one America and it would be great if people started to understand that. It is great that millions of people across this country used the freedom to voice their concerns today that democracy provides, but now it's time to give President Trump time to respond to your ideas. Please try to remember that a raising tide lifts all ships, and when you embrace patriotism there is no room for race or sexism. God bless America.

Today is day 1. It won't be out of our system until all people have equal rights, equal access, equal freedom and equal safety.

Re: “The Internet Branded Her a Racist. Does It Matter That She’s Bipolar?

I'm sick and tired of people like Heather Wick who bully and harass others (with so-called humor or otherwise") and then claim that they are the real victim. I don't know much about bipolar disorder, but I sure can spot a sociopath when I see one.
