Re: “Senate Siting Bill’s Wind ‘Bargain’ Riles Critics

Maybe the PSB/PSD should be scouting the state for a cenote that those suffering from its badly-sited renewable projects could be thrown into; then Mr. Burns could savor his role as Vermont's Savior-in-Chief without having to hear the grumblings of those Vermonters who are afflicted by his bad ideas.

"Let them eat mud" - his gravestone could read.

Re: “Marijuana Legalization Headed for Senate Vote

I beg to differ. The energy consumed by the states who have legalized marijuana has NOT been collected in Vermont's discussion and it those states energy use is astronomical..... No legislation until requirements for energy use have been restricted to not grow our electricity generation, be it (man-captured) solar or otherwise.

Re: “South Burlington Kmart to Close

This should be considered as preferable to rural farmland for a solar farm...
Molly Walsh...has that suggestion come up in your involvement with this story?

Re: “Little Randolph Is Divided Over a Massive Development Proposal

A 180-bed hotel and conference center is proposed here, which is more than TWICE as large as the Comfort Inn in Berlin (89 rooms) and would blight the area, sculpting it to look just like every other interstate exit in the country. Outsized, even more so than Rinker's replacement.

265 housing units? Randolph has a long list of homes for sale...yes, let's all hug Jesse for helping us out with that. The Vermont we have known and loved is rapidly slipping through our fingers... and this project will speed that process.

Randolph has long had (but is rapidly losing) a reputation as a farming community but this project would make three projects in a year's time that propose building (or have built) on prime ag soil. Farmers and farmland will be nothing but more important in years to come...it's time we treasured it for all of its environmental services.

Remember Tropical Storm Irene? Should the Green Mountain Project be built-out and a similar superstorm arrive - the stupendous amounts of impermeable surface sitting atop Slack Hill would aim unusual storm runoff right down Slack Hill towards Randolph. That's an image I'm sure we can all conjure.
