If you're looking for "I Spys," dating or LTRs, this is your scene.
If you're looking for full-on kink or group play, you'll get what you need here.
my neighbor was laid off back around XMAX from a $30K job, does not want to work, the state takes care of them, unbelievable, nice people but........
You've said it best. No unions and no high paying jobs in Vermont. It's as if nobody feels they deserve to make money. It's the perfect scenario for somebody with money from outside of Vermont to come in and manipulate the situation to make even more money. If you're looking for a dollar store to come in and create minimum wage jobs then that's exactly what will happen.
Most Dollar General Stores appear in small communities that are very under served by any store. They provide a very needed way to get many items and save money. I'm tired of the self righteous types that don't like certain outlets. Fine, don't patronize them. Obviously, they are filling a niche that was unfilled. They provide jobs and pay taxes. What's the problem?
Half of working Vermonters make $12 per hour or less. They have to shop somewhere. If my choice is Dollar General or a Mom and Pop shop that charges 3 times as much for the same items, I'm going with Dollar General.
Pacilio is urging tenants not to shop at a store right across the street from them? Really?
My wife shops there maybe once a week, and we are not poor, maybe that is why. A bag of kitty litter for a buck, vs whatever Hannaford can get away with. If they obey the law they have a right to be here. But communities should negotiate with them never the less for the best terms and suitable location. I doubt they will put a really good country market out of business or even close, apples and oranges
no unions, no high paying jobs in vermont? you've got a ton of citizens living on government handouts. what do you expect? the same people that make your beds at killington are making far below the poverty line. can't think of a better environment for dollar stores.
It shouldn't take four years to get the permits in order. This is obscene. This is a small state in need of great businesses so someone should have been on top of this and clearing the way.
Never open a business until all permits are in place. Tough lesson. I am sorry you had to learn it the hard way.
I had tony Clark as a teacher in 1969. It is good to see what has become of him.
i dont live in usa, but I wanted to know if a normal citizen of vermont could access the marijuana dispenseries and buy there, just like that, for whatever the reason, headache or any other kind. Because That's what happen in west Canada, where a nobody obtain the card in less than 10 minutes, and 2 sentences spoken, and have access to any pot shop, which is cool.
There does not need to be a Dollar General or Family Dollar every 10 minutes down the road and that's what's happening. It's BS. It's as much a blight as WalMart is. especially when they're packed to the gills with junk & not well maintained. Who really wants to enter a place filled with cheap crap that looks like a bomb has gone off, let alone shop there? I'm not a snob, just long for a little better quality discount store and employees who keep it shoppable. I actually miss Ames & Woolworth. Perhaps their cheap stuff would be just as poor quality now too, I don't know. ?
Ed James farmed in Shoreham and was managing the Shelburne Airport at the time. The oil hose didn't have a slip joint so it wanted to twist off as soon as it was twisted on. Russian radial engines are tough. I practiced for my license flying a 1938 Cub into Swanton and Newport and three grass strips in the islands.
The American Dream still lives in Swanton! I like your attitude Cliff Coy.
The diversity and incredible people and businesses in the Old North End are one of the reasons I bought my home here and have loved living in this part of town for nearly a decade. Lal Maidali has a done a wonderful job with that space and I wish nothing but success!
It’s not big news they own a lot of businesses in Vermont. As I know it is at least 15-20 Simon`s stores, gas stations, a couple hotels, Anchorage Inn for sure, apartments, restaurants and more. They are huge!
I think it would be a public disservice to privatize liquor sales. Prices are - on average - lower in liquor control states, rates of binge drinking are lower, incidents of DUI's are lower and incidents of DUI-related fatalities are lower. So then why turn a system that clearly benefits the public and the public good over to private industry? Just look at how Washington has fared with privatizing their liquor stores.
Also, in terms of the "prohibition-era laws" stellaquarta: why on Earth do you think that happy hour would be a good thing? Are you a bar owner or something and are looking to maximize profits? The hour after happy hour coincides with an uptick in drunk driving related incidents and fatalities. It encourages binge drinking, which is not in the interest of the state or society.
How about just changing some of the ridiculous prohibition-era laws that restrict bars and breweries from doing things like having happy hours, pouring drinks without serving food (breweries but not bars, reason unknown), or serving normal-sized pitchers?
I'll tell you another BIG problem with this state is the monopoly afforded to the 5 distributors of beer. For a bar or store to legally sell beer it MUST be bought through one of those 5 distributors. This is done SOLELY for taxing purposes, which is fine, I don't care about that, but what it does do is create a bottleneck where consumers are denied tasty beers from around the world, simply because none of the 5 distributors are ambitious or motivated enough to import them and then offer them for sale to outlets.
Some sort of system needs to be created where bars and stores can import beers from around the United States and indeed the world and sell them directly to consumers. Create some sort of accounting or inventory tracking that allows the state to still get "their cut" and allows me to enjoy a "Drafty Kilt" from Monday Night Brewers out of Atlanta, or a bottle of Bourbon Barrel Aged Dark Lord Imperial Stout from 3 Floyds Brewing in Indiana.
Vermont could literally be THE beer destination of the world, combine our incredible brews made right here in the Green Mountain State with top notch brews from out-of-state, and there'd be no reason to go anywhere else. Let's not start playing second fiddle to Colorado or Oregon simply because this state can't get it's liquor control and taxation policies out the 20th century!!
What everyone said here, minus what Michael Simoneau said. I have been deeply dismayed by Jean Richards' behavior and talk concerning the whole horrible F35 catastrophe coming down on our heads. And the way he talked about that city councilor- unbelievable!
2) “Gene Richards, director of aviation for the Burlington International Airport, said the airport would not participate in a commission that includes residents as representatives.”
Richards said if residents are represented on a noise mitigation commission, people with “agendas” could hijack the proceedings, and (the) …“anti-F-35” commission would be unproductive
These quotes are indicative of his reaction to the legitimate questions by numerous members of an obviously frustrated audience, from both S. Burlington and Winooski, carrying pent up frustrations from a perception of the airport not being fully receptive or responsive to noise issues. Rather than recognize the legitimate questions of a noise–impacted public, Richards later used a scapegoat tactic to deflect the anger directed at himself: He accused a city councilor, who stood up to ask a question, of spreading “irresponsible misinformation” about the new noise exposure maps. (His notion is complete nonsense and an insult to local residents)
3) In this very article: “Richards described the neighborhood group as ‘dysfunctional.’ ”
This is Richards perspective on the community of peoples surrounding the airport and subjected to the military jet noise.
