Re: “Sanders to Return to Iowa in September

It would be a revolution if he ran & won as an independent and, at the same time, helped flush the senate and congress of the republicans and democrats. Just imagine this country with a solid and unified government that actually represented the interests of the people again.

Re: “As He Ponders a Presidential Run, Sanders Crushes Off-Year Fundraising Record

I like Bernie Sanders but I have to say, I don't like seeing him standing under the Democratic Party sign. Both the DNC & RNC should be tried for Treason. We will not again have an government of, for and by the people while these two parties hold a monopoly on our political system.

Re: “ICE Halts Deportation of Migrant Activist Danilo Lopez — For Now

You would think law abiding citizens would want their Senators to uphold the oaths of office they swore when they keep getting reelected. To support and defend the constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic. Not circumvent the Federal government employees from doing their jobs, and showing poor examples to the public by ignoring the law and preventing the Federal government law enforcement officers that you fund and are undermining for cheap underhanded election maneuvering for your next "photo op". Shame on you! We used to call people traitors for less.

Re: “Vermont Police Take Hands-Off Approach to Investigating Massage-Parlor Prostitution

I'll play devil's advocate here. I've been to Rub Maps and here in the states and Rub Maps has more protection and leeway. The reviews are spot on with what you're getting. The real problem here is the lack of govt regulation!! The sex trade is just like the drug trade, if it wasn't for our Puritan politics, things like these can easily be monitored and regulated.

Re: “Williston Landlord Charged With Allowing Prostitution, Customers May Be Identified in Court

Does anyone see this listed on Rub Maps? I'm trying to find it cause I'm shocked something like this could happen. What is this world coming to, I never such a world of "happy endings" existed.

Re: “Sanders to Return to Iowa in September

Sanders would certainly serve the interest of the majority of Americans. The question is whether the majority will acknowledge that or whether the marketing techniques of big money will prevail.

It would be a revolution indeed.

Re: “Clover Mead Café & Farm Store Reopens

After living in NYC on the upper westside for the past 40 years we retired to the ADK. Beyond takeout , great food was hard to come by up here. Having Marla's vision for a great cafe minutes from our home was such a surprise. We go every weekend to be amazed by her cooking, and inspired by the farm to table philosophy. You would be hard pressed to find food of this quality so close to great views on your bike, hiking, kayaking, or simply a fun afternoon drive. Retired Foody…

Re: “Lake Placid's HoJo's Is Still Sizzling

The article really shines the spotlight of what the restaurant really has for a legacy, but how the publisher describes that too-well-known demise of the Howard Johnson company was just like how it was defined back 5 years ago. The usual, "sold to Mariott, they closed all but 25% of the restaurants and kept most of the motor lodges. Bought and sold time and time again, it's now owned by Wyndham." What was not, most likely never noted in the story was the current revitalization of the brand. It recalls the iconic logo (I'm not talking about the roof logo, but rather the mid-century edition), plus concepts for the interior designs for the lobbies come with a giant panel talking about the founder and his impact on roadside hospitality (something at the time that was yet to be invented), and as far as current sources indicate, summon a revival of the orange-roofed Gate Lodges. If the author managed to include Wyndham's relation to the brand, why did they not mention the return of HoJo's famous ice cream flavors in the article? People need to know that despite their roots, Wyndham is NOT another Cendant!

Re: “Vermont Restaurateurs Order Up Construction Manager Peter Smejkal

WOW! What an inspiring odyssey that Peter and Iva have been on to fulfill the American dream with the willingness to work hard and ethically. Congratulations!

Re: “As He Ponders a Presidential Run, Sanders Crushes Off-Year Fundraising Record

Our Senator and Congressman are, of course, shocked and appalled at the role money plays in campaigns, especially the protection of incumbents.

Re: “Where Have All Vermont's Line Cooks Gone?

<--- *is married to a line cook* Wow, I wonder why it's hard to find people for physically strenuous jobs paying $10 to $12 an hour with no health insurance, paid time off, or retirement plan in 110-degree kitchens where you're never allowed to call in sick.

Re: “Vermont Restaurateurs Order Up Construction Manager Peter Smejkal

I have worked with Peter on many of his jobs mostly doors and hardware, but on some projects he has had me do metal work. Peter is a great man and glad to be part in his ventures.

Re: “Lake Placid's HoJo's Is Still Sizzling

My family and I love going to Hojo's for Clams, French Fries and the "All You Can Eat" salad bar.. The Butler family is a wonderful family and an asset to our community!

Re: “Lake Placid's HoJo's Is Still Sizzling

Breakfast at Hojo's in LP is a must. Still stay there when in LP unless Chateau Wittso is available. LP Hojos is a Landmark and I hope it stays for many years to come!

Re: “Burlington Will Investigate Alternatives to Buffer Zone

A person has the right to access a health care facility protected from "obstructing, detaining, hindering, impeding, or blocking a person's entry or exit from a clinic." No one questions that part of the ordinance which has survived the Supreme Court's ruling.
Why is there an "urgency" to protect anyone from speech that they would rather not listen to? Isn't being subject to unwanted speech the price we pay for our own ability to speak our minds?

Re: “Oh, Boies! Shumlin's Campaign War Chest Dwarfs Milne's

I am a candidate for Governor with a growing base of support. I am fascinated with Paul's insistence that I am not worth his time to cover. Can anyone explain it? For the record, I am spending my own money, roughly $2000 so far in the race. I really want to get money out of politics, but Paul wants to keep it the singular bench mark of viability it would appear.

Re: “Burlington Bites Into the Fluoride Question

I have lived in Burlington for about five years now and have always drank the tap water. This combined with use of fluoride dental products has begun to have affects on my teeth. Now I am beginning to get some white spots on my teeth which is very concerning and unappealing. I am worried that it will continually get worse and ruin my teeth for good. If I cease all ingestion of fluoride by filtering water and using non-fluoride toothpaste, will these white spots go away? I am frustrated by the whole thing!

Furthermore, is Burlington still fluoridating our water sources?
