Re: “Burlington Man Tries Every Trick in Search for Missing Kitty

Orson and I connected early on in the search for Lumen. I contacted him because I know from personal experience how terrible it is to go through this. My own cat has been MIA almost 6 years. I still hold out hope he is alive because I have never had a feeling he is not. Miracles happen. I hope Lumen and Orson and Rufus and me being reunited are two of them.

Re: “Displays of Stupidity: When Fireworks Spark Trouble

Seems more than silly that all fireworks require a permit which of course nobody gets. Never understood the impulse to make laws which aren't obeyed or enforced.

Re: “A Vermont Distance Runner Plans to Tackle the Long Trail for Opioid Abuse Awareness

"Phil LaCroix, 35, said he was inspired to take on the state's signature 274-mile mountain route after seven close friends fatally overdosed." What a great group of close friends.

Re: “Guerilla Artist Donates Oversize Xylophones to Burlington School

Hard to think of a more deserving and well-located place for these public instruments to land. Mr. Waters is to be commended! Maybe the IAA kids could learn a couple tunes and then record a video to send to him? (And does he make other instruments? If so, maybe this time he could be commissioned by the school if it has any $$ set aside for the playground upgrade?)

Re: “Guerilla Artist Donates Oversize Xylophones to Burlington School

This is a wonderful addition to the school. My first sight of the instrument included two first graders banging out a complete tune. Thanks to the artist. Let's all resolve never to call these xylophones since those are made of wood. "Glockenspiel" is probably better (though of course the maker gets to decide.)

Re: “Champlain Parkway Opponents Threaten to Derail Burlington Project

The Southern end of Pine Street has far, far too much traffic. It is used as a bypass for Rt7. Traffic backs up from Rt.7, down the Queen City Parkway, all the way past Baird on Pine. I know because I lived right there. Large trucks and tractor trailers use Pine St. all day. The people whining about the proposal don't live in the neighborhood.

Re: “Drats — It's Rats! Vermin Invasion Rattles Winooski Neighborhood

Winooski is where my brother lives, he has trouble with rats all the time at his church! No wonder! What a DISGRACE, to deface GOD'S HOUSE with disease infested RATS. Gabe, my old fishing buddy, was behind this. I can't believe It! Need to PRAY.

Re: “Drats — It's Rats! Vermin Invasion Rattles Winooski Neighborhood

And what is Gabe Handy, the slum landlord whose property was demolished, and created this infestation, going to do about it? He can well afford to take care of the problem, but will he do the right thing? From what I read, it seems like both he and the City of Winooski are passing the buck and still, the homeowner's are the ones suffering. Rats breed disease, multiply and a health hazard....Maybe that will drive people away from living in Winooski instead of the noisy and dangerous F-35's?

Re: “Drats — It's Rats! Vermin Invasion Rattles Winooski Neighborhood

Just another reason why they should build a wall around Winooski.
How did they let it get this bad? C'mon?

Re: “A Smartphone App Connects Green Up Day Vermont Volunteers

If anyone noticed Earth Day (last Sunday) has come and gone with very little actually being done in the way of traditional physical participation. So called millennial's concern for the environment is more of a soical media event, virtual Polar Bears, and taking selfies at massive professionally choreographed festive marches and protests.

Re: “Champlain Parkway Opponents Threaten to Derail Burlington Project

To the people who think that the Champlain Parkway will somehow bring loads of new traffic to Pine Street and the south end, that traffic is already here now on neighborhood streets not built to handle it. Home Ave, Flynn Ave, and Pine St are currently de facto highways and are loud and dangerous. Huge 18-wheelers and non-stop traffic barrage Home, Flynn and Pine and severely reduce quality-of-life for neighborhood residents.

The South End will be saved when the Champlain Parkway is built, Also, it is not being built with taxpayer money. It is being built with federal funds that we already have and will loose if it is not built. The current situation cannot continue and the city and state know it.

However, the misinformation and endless self-serving litigation from the opponents is epic.

Re: “Champlain Parkway Opponents Threaten to Derail Burlington Project

Miro-bots, Chamber of Commerce lackeys, oligarch bootlickers and Neo-liberal flacks are out in force again, flogging yet another project designed to kill the city of Burlington for their own personal profit. These are the vultures who are circling downtown. They have their man in the Mayor Mini-Trump, the local sycophant media, and plenty of outside money to push this. They all promote the Big Lie of Endless Convenience and Consumption. They yell for MORE MORE MORE of elitist dining and shopping as the cure for Burlington's ills ( and driving the poor out of town so they can gentrify the Old North End).

Just make the Champlain Parkway a 6 lane overpass. Pave over City Hall Park, knock down Memorial Auditorium and be done with it already, as that is what you truly want. Turn Burlington into a high rise , white collar playground for the Elect and then gaze in the mirror at your own genius and try not to fall in love with the reflection.

The Burlington area is growing at a cancerous rate that is spreading. "Vermont" will just become an advertising brand for a lifestyle few residents will be able to afford. Instead of being one of America's Most Livable Cities it will become one of its most "Laughable" cities that will look like anywhere else: another High-rise 1%er slum.

Re: “Champlain Parkway Opponents Threaten to Derail Burlington Project

It should be mentioned that Steve Goodkind and Charles Simpson have a political interest in trying to stop the Champlain Parkway project, much the same as their political interest in stopping the Burlington Mall project. Neither of them will be directly affected by the Champlain Parkway project. We should all look at and consider the comments of people who live and work in the project area rather than outsiders with other interests.

Hi Steve, You're right. Charles Simpson said that. The story has been corrected. Thanks for letting us know!

Re: “Champlain Parkway Opponents Threaten to Derail Burlington Project

I think we've heard enough from the ANTI Everything Coalition. Its literally the same group of people. They just change their name to fit whatever project is their anti-du-jour.
