Re: “Pending Town Meeting Approval, Healthy Living Aims to Build Store in Shelburne

Healthy living is getting this land no matter what. The fire and rescue buildings will need to be replaced no matter what. May as well be at a lesser cost to the taxpayers by doing it now.

Re: “Pending Town Meeting Approval, Healthy Living Aims to Build Store in Shelburne

The reaction to this story makes me wonder why anyone would want to invest in Vermont . I don't have any particular opinion of Healthy Living . I might stop in when shopping at Trader Joe's . HL has a good selection at high prices . Unlikely to make a big order.
So why the hate for a Vermont owned and based business ? I don't get you people . Don't shop there fine but actively wishing them failure is odd .

It's worth hearing the experiences of past and present Healthy Living workers when talking about them expanding: https://www.reddit.com/r/burlington/commen…

Re: “Pending Town Meeting Approval, Healthy Living Aims to Build Store in Shelburne

I love how "Wealthy Living" is trying to get the town of Shelburne to help finance their project. Their South Burlington store is only 7 miles from this new location -- and Shelburne already has a supermarket ... plus Hannafords, Shaws, Price Chopper/Market 32 and City Market's new south end store are just four miles north! Please don't be greedy -- we don't need another market ... and Shelburne cannot afford to move the fire station after spending a fortune on the railroad lawsuit and the $6.5 million library.

Re: “Pending Town Meeting Approval, Healthy Living Aims to Build Store in Shelburne

Shelburne is a small town: 7,730 residents in 2017, 19% under 18 (most not contributing to taxes). We have been hemorrhaging money. It needs to stop. Not all residents are affluent. Keep the fire station where it is. Deal with it.

Move the station and what happens when a fire breaks out on the south side of Shelburne, when traffic is backed up from north of the Rice intersection, all the way down to the traffic light in town...as it can be even now, without any added Healthy Living traffic?

Shelburne Supermarket is no longer locally owned. it is owned by an NH business Associated Grocers of New England. Facts matter

Re: “Pending Town Meeting Approval, Healthy Living Aims to Build Store in Shelburne

Clearly it would hurt Shelburne Supermarket, another local business that has been here for Shelburne, Charlotte and S. Burlington for years without asking taxpayers for support. City Market has just built a new store not all that far away. We don't need another store on Rt 7, and certainly not one asking for support! from the town.

Re: “Pending Town Meeting Approval, Healthy Living Aims to Build Store in Shelburne

Another bond issue for the overtaxed town...lets see- we are paying a huge amount for constant lawsuits against the Railroad, a new firetruck- and yes, and a 6.5 million dollar library- over budget...lets add this to the plate. OUR SELECTBOARD NEED TO STOP SPENDING MONEY. that's what happens when it's filled with lawyers and doctors- and not everyday folk.

Re: “Pending Town Meeting Approval, Healthy Living Aims to Build Store in Shelburne

Having a sussessful biz and connections that parents can give you is a pretty great thing...Hes a lucky guy for sure. Farrell, OBrien, Hinsdale, Bissonette, Handy, Vallee, Davis, Pomerleau, Ireland, Pecor, Wulfson, etc...all families that hit it big in the last 45 years or so in Chittenden Co. and handed off to next generations. These families continue to build Chittenden Co. and the state economically.

Re: “Federal Shutdown Puts Colchester Meadery Expansion on Hold

Shouldn't this bring into question why the feds are responsible for this? Last time they shut down, breweries couldn't get new lables approved. A label and logo has to go to the feds for approval.

So much for freedom.

Re: “Federal Shutdown Puts Colchester Meadery Expansion on Hold

That sense of community and care for ones neighbors is one of the reasons I love Vermont," Leahy said.

It's interesting to note that's exactly the reasons why the people of Vermont do NOT want the F35 bomber jet based in our residential neighborhoods. We don't want our communities trashed by anyone, no matter who they are. And even if our own homes are not directly affected by the projected negative impact of this inappropriate and dangerous basing decision, we deeply care about our neighbors whose homes, health, safety and property values will be bombed by the F35s.

Funny how Sen. "Paddy Warbucks" Leahy just can't seem to understand or appreciate his own words when it comes to the F35 basing in Vermont. He sure doesnt seem to love those same qualities when it comes from everyday Vermonters who oppose the toxic future that he is forcing upon thousands of Vermonters.

Re: “Hen of the Wood Restaurateurs Buy Prohibition Pig

Great news. Hen of the Wood is my favorite Vermont restaurant. I hope the new owner can do something about the echo and excessive noise level at Prohibition Pig.

I believe the photo that accompanies this article is from Bluebird Barbecue, not Prohibition Pig.
