Re: “Entrepreneurial Dream Team Sets Sights on Marijuana

Sure, this is just what VT needs to partner with the large amount of drug use - more drugs.

Re: “Soundbites: WTF is Going on With Grace Potter & the Nocturnals?

It should be noted that Benny Yurko of the Nocturnals is also a part of Blues and Lasers.

Re: “House Backs Gun Bill

It's critically important to life as we know it that the mentally ill, the disturbed, the insane, and the clinically depressed, etc., all be allowed to have unfettered access to guns.

Re: “House Backs Gun Bill

Oh great! They fear it might lead to further scrutiny in background checks? Why tell me, is that a problem? If you are a law abiding citizen who has nothing to hide.....why in God's name would you be afraid of background checks. No one has EVER proposed limiting the right to bear and own arms in Vermont. I think fear of honest background checks is irrational and borders on paranoia.

Re: “Amid Corren Dispute, Sorrell Seeks Change in Public-Financing Law

The rules were just fine as long as it was Republicans who were getting caught up. But now that it's a left-winger, we need to change the rules?

Re: “Farmhouse Group Expands Beyond Commissary

This article is such a joke. People were fired fro this business, and the sandwich shop that closed a few months earlier. Farmhouse Group has been the darling of the burlington food scene for years, and now two black eyes. Yet 7days and FHG spin this closing as a good thing. How are they 'growing' if they are moving all the business out of burlington and letting their staff go? It's amazing to see the hype surrounding this local brand that serves mediocre burgers and tacos.

Re: “Chop Shop Hair Design

I have to say since I moved back to VT two years ago I have struggled to find a hair salon that I truly trust...Chop Shop is the first salon that has competent stylists that know how to color hair appropriately without frying your hair...These stylists know what they are doing...I bounced around between multiple ppl there and was never disappointed, now I go to Alicia who can give you a city quality cut/color with a BTV price:) I will never search for a salon again! I highly reccomend going there! Don't believe the negative reviews you see online, they're posted from people that don't understand what a coloring process takes!

Re: “Can Suburban South Burlington Build a Real Downtown?

If I'm hearing is correct there is a CURRENTLY standstill traffic from at least exit 13 to 14 on 89N because of two three-car pileups on the bridge... I think that deserves at least a few "likes" on my previous comment...

Re: “Can Suburban South Burlington Build a Real Downtown?

I think a critical step that may be overlooked here is in the completion of a full cloverleaf interchange at exit 13. 89N exit 14E is horrendous and flat out dangerous. Dorset St to Rt 2W to get onto 89S is similar; it's a race to fight to get into the right lane, especially with traffic from 89N exit 14W. The last thing Burlington needs is more idiots heading toward the lake, desperately searching for a way to turn left to turn around, only to have just passed East Ave.

Re: “Hoffer Issues Tough Report on Vermont Health Connect

I get health insurance through Vermont Health Connect, and I'm grateful for it. But it has not been easy. I have never in my life seen anything so screwed up. A carload of drunk circus clowns could not have come up with anything more disorganized, convoluted, irrational, or user-unfriendly. Did the Vermont state bureaucracy try to mess this up on purpose? Was it their big moment to prove just how incompetent they really are? I can't think of any other reason why anything could be so bad. It makes a thought cross my mind that I thought never would: maybe the Republicans are right about government.

Re: “Lawmakers Making a Point About Marijuana Say: Ban Booze

So brave, I've seen alcohol, the fallout from addiction, dwi ruining ones life, fights and it's trappings a thousand times more detrimental then this plant. Very cool comparison. I'd add cigarettes too the list as well...

Re: “Seasoned Traveler: Rickie's Indian Restaurant

I really hope these two continue to find success. It sounds like their restaurant is a little hidden, which is unfortunate. I adore great Indian food! I always like to try any restaurant that serves Indian food, so if I'm ever here I'll have to check this place out.

Re: “Vermont Marijuana Users Come Out of the Cannabis Closet in Survey

Wow, these two responses are definitely not examples of legalizing dope...eating raw dough and can't remembering if she took the survey or not! As a past "stoner" and now a very infrequent recreational indulger, I have seen the good and bad effects of smoking. That "euphoric" state can be very addicting, and can really screw up your way of thinking and behaving and yes, I have seen it many times, lead to harder drugs to maintain that high. I have also witnessed the helpful medicinal benefits when everything else fails. I think if Vermont does decide to say okay to it, there must be strict requirements and the monies made, plied back into education, lowering taxes, human services programs, keeping Vermont beautiful, etc. and that dispensaries don't pop up on every corner. I know that Colorado is still struggling with these problems. I hope there would be drug testing for our military (especially with the fliers of the F-16's and the F-35's over our neighborhoods!) and possibly make it mandatory when someone goes to apply for a driver's license, teaching positions, etc. which I do believe some of this is already in place. I think the key is to be responsible, as with any other drug. I would hate for our wonderful Vermont to be known only as a "military" and "stoner" state....

Re: “Can Suburban South Burlington Build a Real Downtown?

Wow, JHK is right, there are three huge parking garages in the plan. If it has to be multi-level parking, and it's worth spending that kind of money for a long-term eyesore, they should just have to bury it with green space above. At least then we don't have to look at it, no one has to plow it, salt it, maintain it, and we get a nice park.

Imagine how nice Maple Tree Place would be if even half that parking was underground? Don't tell me that can't afford to do it, they just don't want to afford it, but they'll do it if the public makes it a priority.

Which we can and should.

Look what we ended up with in Winooski, at "luxury" building no less, parking that we have to look at, on the first floor. It's not even completely blocked from public view! WTF is that, a compromise so people driving by can see the river they can no longer see? How did that happen?

It seems like half of Montreal is underground, if they can do that, we can certainly require parking.
