Re: “Leadercast 2016: Architects of Tomorrow

I've been to Leadercast back when I was living in New York. It is such an amazing experience and I am so excited it's coming to Vermont!

Re: “The Parmelee Post: Exclusive Interview With BLM Flag Thief

Stacy, the whole "but what about the troops" thing is getting really old. It's not connected to this, acts to downplay other important issues and actually trivializes the plight of our current and former troops. They know they're being used, but I'm also entirely sure that they would appreciate not being used as a literary device. When was the last time you donated to a veteran's fund?

Re: “With Backing from Key Institutions, Burlington to Pursue District Heating

Even if this new district heating is a good thing (I know some people who support it for good reasons), there is no reason why we can't make it work with human-scaled buildings that do not bust our comprehensive plan, Plan BTV. The mayor wants everyone to believe that the new environmental standards for the downtown overlay district approved on Thursday night could not be achieved without caving to the 14-story building of increased mass with its 3 1/2 floors of above ground parking garages. In fact, we could have new LEED building standards, new storm water treatment standards, this new district heating and more at 5-10 stories. We could add park and rides, reducing car trips, get rid of the parking garages, limit the excessive use of resources needed to build and heat something as high as this proposed skyscraper, and increase green spaces, and green roofs. This is GREENWASHING. The argument that building skyscrapers in the city reduces sprawl is also greenwashing. The same people are behind building on our farms and woodlands. They don't give a fig for carbon emissions or wildlife or the health of the lake. Nor do they give a fig for affordable housing. These are all tricks to get away with unconscionable and unpopular developments that serve the developer class and the wealthy people who want investment properties. Don't believe it. Visit htttp://coalitionforalivablecity.blogspot for the real story about the overlay district.

Re: “Taco Time at Middlebury Chocolates

What local farms does Middlebury Chocolates get its cocoa beans from? Right. If the Jacksons feel so strongly about serving local food, maybe they should change their business model. But a couple of tacos are not going to cut it. And I agree with Christina: Many Middlebury restaurants do a good job of featuring locally sourced food while maintaining diverse, interesting menus.

Re: “The Parmelee Post: Exclusive Interview With BLM Flag Thief

Definitely ignorant.
But I'd like to ask - If UVM is flying a BLM flag, is it also flying flags for MIA, POW, and recognizing our military members who have risked and/or lost their lives to protect the freedoms for our USA and those of other countries? Let's be all inclusive here. Let's be sure that UVM is flying all of the important flags that represent everything and includes everyone and all interest groups.

Re: “Higher Purpose? Council Approves Zoning Change, Sends It to Voters

What a disappointing and outrageous rush to sell out the character of Burlington's downtown! Voters should reject this zoning change and work together to design a city center worthy of our beautiful home.

Re: “Higher Purpose? Council Approves Zoning Change, Sends It to Voters

The way the mayor and proponents of the plan as it is currently laid out characterized it as the last great hope for Burlington's future was disingenuous and misleading at best... you can't tell me there isn't another developer out there in the big big world outside of Vermont that wouldn't be willing to redevelop the mall in a manner that is amenable to the wishes of Burlington's citizenry as outlined in Plan BTV and under current zoning??... to characterize the "opposition" as somehow against progress in any form or against development is just a politically motivated lie... it's about time somebody did some due diligence and pushed back against this mayor a little bit... no one is saying don't build... just build something better... not simply bigger...

Color me shocked, the person who yanked down the flag is an ignorant, unintelligent, racist with mommy issues.

Re: “Higher Purpose? Council Approves Zoning Change, Sends It to Voters

Yes, Lea Terhune, I did see Brian Dunkiel, one of Sinex's lawyers walk over to the city attorney, Eileen Blackwood, directly after the meeting and shake her hand. He said, "thank you". They did not exactly wink, but I know they both were wearing broad grins. Or maybe smirks? It is increasingly confusing. Does Sinex's lawyer work for the city or does the city's lawyer work for Sinex? Or does it even matter? The city had been using tax payer money for months to push a developer's project and to refute the concerns of conscientious citizens with a wide-range of expertise, asserting that we are misrepresenting facts, when the truth is rather the opposite. It is my understanding that now that the question is on the ballot the city MAY NOT ADVOCATE FOR IT IN ANY WAY. Let's hope they obey the law on this one and remember, for once, that they were elected to serve us, not Don Sinex.

I concur. The topic seemed to come out of thin air, then there was a vote. Interesting process.

Re: “The Beatles: Eight Days a Week — The Touring Years

"Ringo Starr, undeniably the least gifted of the group..."

OK, granted that being a member of the Beatles sets the bar pretty high, but... "....undeniably the least gifted of the group...[!!]" Nothing personal, but are you nuts??

Granted, Starr was not a song-writer, or --frankly-- much of a singer. But, _musically_, he held his own with _any_ of the others.

I worked as a musician for decades and I never met a drummer who didn't list Starr in their top-five list of favorite rock drummers.

Did you see one of Sinex's lawyers thank Eileen Blackwood after the meeting? Was it really accompanied by a wink? ;-(
