Re: “Warren Zevon's Massive Book Collection Is for Sale

Loved his works. His doc on making The Wind was extremely moving.

Re: “Vermont Considers Dumping Dorothy Canfield Fisher Over Ties to Eugenics Movement

https://books.google.com/books?id=qYv7l6sg…

"Seasoned Timber", by Dorothy Canfield Fisher

According to the forward in this book, at least one author took issue with linking Dorothy Canfield Fisher to eugenics and racism.

Maybe there's a counterargument to be made here?

Re: “Dining on a Dime: Burlington Bay Market & Café in Burlington

We call it "The inevitable Burlington Bay." It's so good, so consistent, and has been for a long time. A great spot.

Re: “A Vergennes Father Is Being Forced to Return to Mexico

What's worse for our country a President that paid millions in taxes and created thousands of jobs as a private citizen of an illegal that crossed into our country illegally twice and apparently committed a crime when he got his license because last time I checked you need identification to obtain a license such as a birth certificate or social security card to get a license. So you are right Courtney I would say Trump is a better man than Juan and more honest too. How about having some pride in your country and respect for it's laws. Those are things you probably never learned at what ever snowflake school you attended. You should try walking into Mexico sometime without papers and see how long they let you stay. I feel bad for you that you have no clue how civilized nations work. Have fun when MS13 moves to your neighborhood. Maybe you can become a snowbunny.

Re: “Walters: Panel Ices Wind Rules Until October

Pretty lousy reporting, as there were 13 witnesses and there is too much opinion in this. As an example, "Its hard to believe that such a standard would be seriously proposed for any other kind of development in Vermont, from a dollar store to a nuclear plant." It is harder to believe that anyone thinks that 500 foot tall electric generators on Vermont's ridgelines or near residences is a good idea. And as I pointed out in my remarks in response to a comment submitted to LCAR about the proposed standards being lower than those applied in Act 250 cases for quarries and other noisy operations, those operations shut down at night and weekends. The commenter, Linda Gray who has worked for AWEA and whose husband was ED of AWEA for years, complained that there is different treatment for different types of commercial developments. I agree with her. Wind turbine neighbors would be happy to accept the same noise standards applied in Act 250, operating weekdays and sometimes on Saturday mornings, but not at night or on Sunday.

Re: “A Vergennes Father Is Being Forced to Return to Mexico

Oh I don't know "Citizen", how about right here:

"He has a drivers license; he pays taxes, Kirsten said. Every year he goes in for his check-in. They basically ask if we live in the same location, how things are going and thats it.

You want the IRS to investigate them to make sure their taxes are in order but you are supportive of the guy in the white house who won't release his for public record? Which is worse for the country?! Actually, I already know what you will say.

Re: “A Vergennes Father Is Being Forced to Return to Mexico

Courtney where did it state that he paid taxes? You have to have a social security number to pay taxes and if he has one he must have got it fraudulently which is a crime. Juan states that he has no documents so I'm willing to bet he has not paid any taxes. It's time for the IRS to investigate his farm and his wife's daycare to ensure that all their taxes are in order. Also I bet the 18 year old son had to have paperwork and a visa to go on his internship over seas and that was only for 10 weeks is it fair for Juan to come to America for 14 years with nothong?

Re: “A Vergennes Father Is Being Forced to Return to Mexico

Forget about Juan . Even if you feel badly about his situation , forget about Juan . How is this policy of removing all the illegals that can be caught , regardless of whether they are paying taxes and contributing to the American economy, how is removing them good for the USA ? So from a purely selfish approach , why is this a good idea ? Do people think spending lots of money to expel the Juan's is somehow going to stop illegal immigration ?
One other more . It's the "good" illegals that are easy to catch . The bad hombres are a lot tougher to round up .Nothing more then political theater . Even a dumb ass should get that .

Re: “A Vergennes Father Is Being Forced to Return to Mexico

Gene, did you skim over the part where it says how ICE has been allowing him to stay under supervision? I suppose you don't care about that given your track record of hateful comments on here. This man is a father, an extremely hard worker who PAYES taxes and someone who the community here relies upon. Keep your hate to yourself.

Re: “Vermont Marijuana Legalization Stalls in the House, Fails Again

With the financial interests of government, complicit in every illegal drug issue facing America today, it is difficult not to assume that Phil Scott is under pressure NOT to rock the boat. You cannot make an omelet without breaking a few eggs, and until there is a way to compensate those on the losing end of the drug racket, the bill is not going to pass... the Governor and those in the Legislature know this.

Re: “A Vergennes Father Is Being Forced to Return to Mexico

Bullcrap with the statement that "she fears for their safety there." Mexico is a huge country with some cities and states with high crime rates and others that are actually safer than most urban or even rural areas in the USA. As for earning a living, yes you can do it in Mexico too. So tired of that crap story.

Re: “A Vergennes Father Is Being Forced to Return to Mexico

Hey Juan didn't you understand after being deported the first time that it is illegal to enter the USA without a visa or over stay on a student or work visa? I feel for your family but what did you think was going to happen just because you got married and had some kids the law should not apply to you anymore. Stop playing the poor me card and take responsibility for your decisions. Go back to Mexico and apply for citizenship the legal way. As for your wife saying that Mexico is not safe I agree and that is why the USA needs to enforce our laws in order to keep our citizens safe from those that make Mexico so dangerous coming here. Im sure you are a nice guy but that does not put you above the law. I truly hope you can be reunited with your family soon but do it the legal way. If you had done that 14 years ago you could have avoided this entire situation. And I would not try to cross illegally again Trumps solar wall is going to be hot. And Vermonters remember your elected officials put illegals "rights" before your rights. #timetovotethebaldguysout

Re: “A Vergennes Father Is Being Forced to Return to Mexico

Our immigration policy needs to have more heart. We will sell green cards through the EB-5 program but won't cut this poor guy some slack. These poor children now will have a broken home. So sad!

Re: “Walters: WDEV Radio For Sale

I worked with "the Noyes boys" back in the 70's in Barre. Jon was only 16 at the time, but he was born with broadcasting blood. WDEV was the powerhouse back then. Best of luck to Ken and I pray for a buyer that knows how to do local radio (it's a dying art).

Re: “Walters: WDEV Radio For Sale

We've just seen WCAX sold from family ownership to an out of state media company. Now it seems likely WDEV will go the same way.

The concentration of media away from local ownership to large national corporations may be necessary economically in the current environment, but it is bad for Vermont.

Face it, Turner is one of those rednecks that think drinking is okay but marijuana is not? Time to get a new house leader!
