Re: “Judge Overturns Rutland Sex Offender Regulations

Sean, if no one else comes up with an answer, the local public defenders can probably get you in touch with the right people. Good luck.

Re: “Burlington Teachers and School Board Still Finalizing Contract

Ahh..as expected, the devil created this pre-adolescent playground behavior exhibited by the 'adults'.

'He started it'.... No he didn't - she did it first!'

The only folks 'forced' into anything in the current public school governance arena are parents and their children, who have enough to do working through their own behavioral issues. Wouldn't it be nice if they could simply choose the school that best meets their needs instead of being held hostage to mandated, dysfunctional, bureaucratic finger pointing, ...not to mention the cost of the inconvenience.

Re: “Burlington Teachers and School Board Still Finalizing Contract

The school board forced the strike with imposition. Mark Porter should reimburse any costs submitted by parents, subcontractors and other related parties incurred because of the strike.

The board clearly doesnt care about Burlington families as the school district is using parent conference time to have the students make up days so they can save money.

Re: “Judge Overturns Rutland Sex Offender Regulations

Any chance you can go back and publish the actual ruling or at least cite the case number so researchers can find it more easily?

Re: “Judge Overturns Rutland Sex Offender Regulations

This is good to see. Residency restrictions are not supported by any research; in fact, they are negatively correlated with successful rehabilitation and reentry.

Re: “Despite Activist Outcry, Panel Passes Updated Impartial Policing Policy

There is no one in the administration who is against immigration. The US immigration policy is probably one of the most liberal in the world. However, we do not accept that individuals can ignore our laws and enter the country ILLEGALLY. ILLEGAL ALLIENS are not immigrants.

Re: “Despite Activist Outcry, Panel Passes Updated Impartial Policing Policy

The reason VT officials decided to do this is not because they care a whit about the safety of the people living here legally. It is all about peeing their pants at the prospect of the government shutting off the federal money spigot that keeps Vermont's economy on the edge of the abyss rather than falling into it. I am glad for what you call a capitulation. Given the terrorist activity quite close to home lately, I want immigration laws enforced.

Re: “Walters: Top Vermont GOP Official Backs Roy Moore

All you Democrats and you know who you are, trashing Pres Trump and all the other Republicans. One question, where were you when your great Democrat Pres BJ Billy Boy Clinton had sex in the Oval Office many times with young interns, he had women brought in the WH by the side door for him to have sex with, Where was your disgust when he raped many women while Governor of Arkansas, Were you there to stand up for these women who accused Clinton, no you just tore these women down, calling them liars, sluts etc?? All were quiet when this came out. There is a lot of secrets in DC on both sides. Because someone stands by a fellow Republican she is called for to be replaced. She must have lived a charmed life if she has nothing in her background that she has buried in order to get on with survival. Do you know her life??? As for Moore it has already come out that 2 of these women were lying, they admitted they lied. Oh, by the way, what about Shumlin who was having an affair with a young woman while married and Governor of Vt but that's ok isn't it because he's a Democrat? Rape and sexual misconduct is not right nor acceptable no matter what.

Re: “Bitter on Twitter: Vermont Democratic Party Flames GOP

LOL - Conner Casey and his minions who just last year pretended to be so outraged when I called one of their committee members, a really big fellow, a "big hunk of meat" - I was only pointing out that they were certainly getting their monies worth. They threw me out of the party for this infraction but scumbag, crybaby bigot, racist, . . . - maybe it's time for Conner to clean house OR if the buck" truly stops with him, shouldn't he resign ?

What really make no sense here is that they are taking pot shots at Sunderland who has left the stage - WTF ! Why not at least keep their attack on the current target or are they so ill-informed that they don't know who the opposition is ! Have vicious and vacuous Snowflakes and Buttercups seized control of the VDP ?

Correction: I meant to say that I was quoting Sinclair Lewis in my comment below, not Upton Sinclair.

Re: “Burlington Teachers and School Board Still Finalizing Contract

Quid pro quo: Pay the teachers for the four days they were on strike and have the union reimburse any costs submitted by parents, subcontractors and other related parties incurred because of the strike.

The school board will have the final decision as to what costs qualify for reimbursement, including the costs incurred by the board for the administration of those reimbursements.

Of course, it's possible, the costs of such an unanticipated circumstance might well be in excess of the teacher's salaries for those four days. But hey, what's good for goose......

Re: “Walters: Top Vermont GOP Official Backs Roy Moore

And it is high time we hold Predator-In-Chief Trump to the same standard...he need to go as well!
It's a shame Clinton didn't properly pay for his own misdeeds, he surely wouldn't get away with it today.

Re: “Walters: Top Vermont GOP Official Backs Roy Moore

As someone who was sexually assaulted when I was a child, it isnt that damned easy to say anything about it, ever, much less at the time. People who think that it is fake because it was not brought out 40 years ago in my opinion, are not hearing what the women are saying. I admit that I do not know word for word what they all said, but I do know what the first woman said and it has a deadly ring of truth to my ears. And one example of sexual misconduct with a 14 year old really should be enough to bring about questioning of a 32 year olds morals, motives and fitness for a position of authority. In America we like to-lets call it, look on the bright side, but a lot of bad stuff happens, and it doesnt go away because we dont look. America can only be as great as our behavior in our darkest moments.
