Re: “During Street Sweeping, Burlington Nearly Towed Bernie Sanders' Car

Great scoop!

Bernie's car was towed!

Once the hooker is latched on, it's a tow - whether the car is transported.

The percentage of cars hooked but not dragged is 1 percent.

Re: “After Weed Legalization, Burlington Police Search Cars Less Often

Fewer searches will hopefully lead to more equitable treatment for black drivers, del Pozo said.

Is this an actual quotation from del Pozo? If so it marks an odd progression of this story and a strange attitude about probable cause and equitable treatment of citizens from del Pozo. After all, shouldn't the chief of police have a bigger impact on how drivers are treated than marijuana laws?

Re: “'Doo-ty' Bound: Volunteers Scoop Dog Poop to Keep Lake Champlain Clean

To all the entitled, lazy people who think you're too special or important to pick up your dog's poop, we see you. I take pictures, I post them. I am far from being the most responsible hiker but the very least I do is pick up after my dog.

I love the parks, I love the trails, I love the lake. I cannot imagine leaving poop for other people to pick up. Shame on you and shame on your parents for raising you to be an enemy of our beautiful parks and trails.

Re: “The USS Vermont Submarine Gets the Teddy Bear Treatment

There is another ship named the USS Fitzgerald, an Arleigh-Burke Destroyer named for Lt. William Charles Fitzgerald, a 1958 graduate of Montpelier High School who died in Vietnam in order to save his men who were on patrol with him. His wife, Betty, still lives in Montpelier.

Re: “Piece of Lake: A Boat-Sharing Club Is Coming to Malletts Bay

Good grief, no thanks. We do not need more waterskiers on Mallets Bay--or anywhere on the Lake for that matter. Who asked for this?

There's a reason yacht clubs don't accommodate this type of motorists. Time for Colchester to enact maximum wake ordinances for both inner and outer bays.

For christ's sake, go to New Hampshire if you want to water ski.

Re: “Officials Want Sugar Houses Registered in Vermont's E911 System

I read the headline and was suspicious . Then I read the article and am totally for this idea . A small measure to help save lives . It would be smart to read the article before being against this idea .

Re: “Officials Want Sugar Houses Registered in Vermont's E911 System

Good grief! There was a time not too long ago where there were no phones or ambulances or fire trucks but, thank God, we have progressed. If you want to live in the last century, have at it.

Re: “Officials Want Sugar Houses Registered in Vermont's E911 System

How much $$$ are these Shacks going to have to pay for this, and to what organization?
What other mandates will the Shacks have to be part of? Roads for access, Communications such as help pay for cell towers or equipment, Water and Sewer,,,,,,, etc., etc.!

Re: “Officials Want Sugar Houses Registered in Vermont's E911 System

Not nanny state. If you dont want to register then dont. Its not required. Its simply emergency services trying to improve their response and efficiency. In an emergency seconds and minute mattter. If you chose not to register, fine, but then please do not whine about a negative outcome. Your choice! I choose increased safety. My life and the life of my friends may depend on it.

Re: “Workers Uncover a ‘Pretty Cool’ Historic Tunnel in Downtown Burlington

The buildings along St. Paul Street next to City Hall Park are connected on the lower level - the tunnel door is still visible at 1 Lawson Lane. The Ghostwalk pointed that out on the tour I took a few years ago.

Edit: This Seven Days story features this:

Between 1790 and 1820, (Gideon) King controlled most of the lakes trade, with ownership of at least 40 percent of the ships on the water. Thomas Jeffersons Embargo Act of 1807 put a major cramp in his style, but King didnt stop trading with our neighbors to the north. He just took it underground literally. According to legend, he built a network of tunnels that extended from the lake to major distribution points in the city.
There are many tunnels under burlington. Manhattan pizza has a tunnel and a mystery door that noone has opened. Necters also has many tunnels in their basement. So the tunnel they found is not a water run off. Its a tunnel for transport of illegal booze and was once used for moving slaves. Dpw really needs to do their homework before making a statement ...

Re: “Amid Retail Pressures, Another Vermont General Store Prepares to Close

I hate seeing this! I grew up around them and worked in a few. Sadly what needs to be done is diversity..and when you wait to long its to hard to recover! My heart goes out to the owners and their choice!

Re: “Amid Retail Pressures, Another Vermont General Store Prepares to Close

My hometown general store - Dan and Whit's - still doing very well in rural Norwich, VT which is also on the connecticut river. In a good market under good management village stores can still thrive, though $15/hr minimum wage may sink even the most resilient ones.

In addition to no sales tax, New Hampshire doesn't have the arduous Act 250 permitting process, which has allowed big box stores to sprout along West Lebanon floodplains like spring wheat.

Re: “Weed for Warriors: Veterans Day Event Features Free Cannabis

PTSD is not a qualifying medical condition for a medical marijuana card unless I'm missing something in the statutes...
